Pittsburgh Bicentennial Frankenstein Project
Welcome to our GitHub Page! We are working on preparing a new digital edition of the novel Frankenstein in its first three editions in time for the bicentennial of its first publication in 1818, and collating it with MITH’s Shelley-Godwin Archive edition of Frankenstein’s manuscript notebooks.
Ready for reading:
Pitt-Greensburg classroom edition (a copy of the same) for use in annotation assignments.
