Three poems bound up together in contemporary calf, moderate edgewear, corners rounded, rebacked, date to front blank, old Atwood armorial bookplate inside cover, scattered foxing and browning; Manfred with the added quote to the title and the Davison imprint at rear, usually regarded as the 3rd issue, bound without the half title. Mazeppa bound without the half title and the rear ads, apparently the 2nd issue (the imprint was moved to the verso of the ads page for the 2nd issue). The Deformed Transformed is the second edition. 80pp; 69, (1), pp; 88pp.
The fragment, included after Mazeppa, is the result of the famous ghost writing contest which resulted in Frankenstein. This fragment provided the spark which resulted in Polidori's The Vampyre.
