A haunted chamber, a suit of armour, a duel to the death, and apparition, a mysterious disappearance, a castle! Originally published in 1778,  this is the unabridged, original text of the second major Gothic novel ever written, following Walpole's The Castle of Otranto, and the first by a woman. Popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, revived in recent years as interest in women's novels of the 18th century increases. Introduction and Notes by Kit Kincade. Also includes the complete text of John Broster's scarce 1799 dramatic adaptation of the novel Edmond, Orphan of the Castle, never before republished. Valancourt Press. 2010. Paper. NEW. $15.00
