New York. 1994. Penguin Books. Reprinted Penguin Popular Classics Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. ISBN:0140620303. A Penguin/Godfrey Cave Edition. 215 pages. paperback. Cover shows a detail from 'Gross Clinic' by Thomas Eakins. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN blends Gothic horror and romance in a story that is both world-famous and increasingly relevant. Frankenstein is a young, idealistic student of natural philosophy who, finding the secret of giving life to matter, creates a living being. The monstrous creation, though tender-hearted and gentle in nature, inspires fear in those who meet him and must hide away from society. Increasingly lonely and isolated, the monster becomes embittered and cruel, taking a hideous revenge on his creator. In a dramatic denouement in which Frankenstein pursues his creation to the Arctic in order to destroy him, Mary Shelley reveals the terrifying consequences of playing God. inventory #29444 ISBN: 0140620303.

How can something be "used" and new and "first edition from 1831 but also SEALED in the original shrinkwrap"? You should learn what these words mean or include only factual information in your descriptions when selling things.
