FROST, T. [THOMAS]. - The Corsican Brothers; or, The Fatal Duel.

London, Purkess [1852?]. Octavo contemporary half calf, original colour illustrated front wrapper mounted on a front endpaper. Bound from the parts with a wood engraving in each part. Some browning and signs of use but a handsome copy with the signature of the great collector of gruesome trash J.P. Quayne. ¶ First edition? Rare, apparently missed by Summers who caught other Frost productions in his Gothic Bibliography. This appeared at much the same time as an English translation of Dumas' novel so Frost offers a short preface in which he insists he didn't know Dumas' novel existed. He based this on the play adapted from Dumas and presumed Dumas' work was also a play.
