"Wolfstein" is a slightly altered and much abridged version of P. B. Shelley's 1811 novel, St. Irvyne; this chapbook was probably published shortly after J. Stockdale's 1822 re-issue of St. Irvyne. "The Bronze Statue" appeared (for apparently the first time in print) as part of the "Annals of Public Justice" in The European Magazine of May 1820, signed "V" [i.e., Anna Jane Vardill].
Biographical/historical: John Bailey traded under his name alone until 1822 (see I. Maxted's London Book Trades).
Content: Folding engraved hand-colored frontispiece with caption beginning, "Deeper grew the gloom of the cavern," depicting the final scene: a giant skeleton, a lightning bolt, the terrified Wolfstein.
Extent: 28 pages,  leaf of plates : frontispiece ; 19 cm
