‘Chapbooks represent, undeservedly, one of the least-studied aspects of the Gothic. Potter’s meticulous scholarship addresses this situation, providing not merely an authoritative introduction to these ephemeral pamphlets and their relationship to mainstream Gothic, but also lucid insight into the complexities of their authorship, publishing and circulation. Clearly written and beautifully illustrated, this book will set the standard for future scholars.’
-ProfessorWilliam Hughes, University of Macau
