The 18th Century Buoys up in 2010

January 21, 2011 § 2 Comments

Once again, 18th century and Regency novels do well on Valancourt Books‘ Top 10 Sellers for the past year:

#3 Six Gothic Dramas by Joanna Baillie

#4 The Witch of Ravensworth by George Brewer 1808

#5 The Necromancer; or, The Tale of the Black Forest by "Lawrence Flammenberg" (pseud. of Karl Friedrich Kahlert) 1794

#8 The Castle of Wolfenbach by Eliza Parsons 1793

#9 The Old English Baron: A Gothic Story by Clara Reeve 1777 with Edmond, Orphan of the Castle John Broster

The Cenci by Percy Bysshe Shelley 1819

I’m so thrilled that of all the excellent editions offered by Valancourt Books, 18th century titles are doing so well, including the two titles from the Northanger Canon; The Castle of Wolfenbach and The Necromancer.

    Hello, I found your blog via my friend Jo at Desire to Inspire. After reading your about page I feel quite certain we were perhaps seperated at birth, ha. I found Austen in a very similar way. I have very much enjoyed reading your posts,regards Katherine

    Hi Katherine! I do apologize, I hadn’t updated my comments etc for ages!

    Very glad to “meet” another unorthodox Austen reader. I looove your blog, it is hands down the best place for furniture inspiration. Sooo jealous that Jo can shop with you.
