Scarce. Bulwer's significant new 6pp Preface - including a passing mention of Frankenstein - discusses in some detail his financial arrangements with Bentley & Colburn and with Saunders & Otley. The latter issued a series of Bulwer titles, a spin-off from the Bentley Standard Novels, in stand-alone volumes : these eventually came to form the 1st Collected Edition of Bulwer Lytton. Sadleir describes the series as 'elegant' and 'carefully produced' and notes 'It is among my keener regrets that I have not been able absolutely to complete the series, but the books seem to be very uncommon'. 1st Edition 3 Vols 1837. Sadleir 3735b.
