Title: The Ghost Seer, Volume II of II. Bound with Edgar Huntly, Memoirs of a Sleepwalker, 1831
Author: Friedrich Schiller and Charles Brockden Brown
Publisher: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley
The Second volume of Schiller's Ghost Seer, and Brown's Edgar Huntley, bound in one volume.
Both tales utilize many elements of Gothic literature, though in different approaches of the 18th century.
Although Schiller never completed his work, the novel proved to be popular with themes of necromancy, spiritualism, and conspiracies. The necromancer Joham Schropfer himself was though to have inspired this work.
On the other hand, Brown approaches the Gothic feel in a different method, through the scenery, secrets, and enigmatic characters. While this may not be as uncommon today, this was a slightly different approach.
Interestingly enough, this edition of the Ghost Seer included within has been found bound more commonly with the first illustrated edition of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, also dating 1831.
Two Volume in Octavo, 177 and 258 pages
