1812 French Les portraits de famille [as by uncredited]
1813 Translated by Sarah Elizabeth Utterson from the 1812 French-language translation of the original German --1813 "Advertisement", pp. [i]-ii Wikisource (above) provides for Author:Sarah Elizabeth Utterson electronic texts of all works in the 1813 anthology but does not explain the attribution.
English The Family Portraits [as by uncredited]
1826 English A Ghost Story [as by uncredited]
1935Translated by Marjorie Bowen from the French and ultimately from the German.
English The Accursed Portrait [as by Anonymous]
2005 English The Family Portraits
2018
    Unknown translation from the original German, perhaps new in 2018
  • "The Fantasmagoriana stories also collected here are translated directly from the German originals, and are the ones Mary mentions in the Introduction to her 1831 edition of Frankenstein [see at ISFDB], where she talks about how her novel came to be written." --Fiona Sampson, "Foreword: Mary Shelley Horror Stories" (2018)
  • Thus the four Fantasmagoriana texts in the 2018 anthology are not those discussed by Shelley and her friends in 1816; namely, Eyries's 1812 translations from German to French (Fantasmagoriana, 8 stories). Whether the 2018 texts are new translations from the German originals is an open question.
  • In the 2018 anthology, this one of four Fantasmagoriana immediately follows "Prefaces to Tales of the Dead", by Utterson, which partly concerns her five 1813 translations.
