The original story of Frankenstein was written by Mary Shelley in 1823. In 1934, Lynd Ward created the first fully illustrated version of the classic story using wood engravings. This particular illustration was used at the end of the story's first segment, a series of letters written to Mrs. Saville before the start of Chapter 1.

This wood engraving is part of the signed edition, printed on tissue, which was not used for the book publication. The wood engravings for the book were all unsigned.

Signed in pencil.
