Playbill for the first stage production of Presumption! about the Frankenstein romance.
The first stage production of Frankenstein was performed at the English Opera House in 1823. The broadside of the first 1823 version advertised the title as Presumption, a New Romance with no mention of Frankenstein. It soon became clear, though, that the name itself was a vital part of the story's appeal. All playbills from this period are extremely scarce.
Wear consistent with age and use.
