When they ran off to France in the summer of , Mary Godwin and Percy Shelley began a joint journal,  which they published in under the title History of a Six Weeks' Tour , adding four letters, two by each of them, based on their visit to Geneva in , along with Percy Shelley's poem " Mont Blanc ".
The work celebrates youthful love and political idealism and consciously follows the example of Mary Wollstonecraft and others who had combined travelling with writing. They also explore the sublimity of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc as well as the revolutionary legacy of the philosopher and novelist Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Mary Shelley's last full-length book, written in the form of letters and published in , was Rambles in Germany and Italy in , and , which recorded her travels with her son Percy Florence and his university friends.
In Rambles , Shelley follows the tradition of Mary Wollstonecraft's Letters Written in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark and her own A History of a Six Weeks' Tour in mapping her personal and political landscape through the discourse of sensibility and sympathy.

These formed part of Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopaedia , one of the best of many such series produced in the s and s in response to growing middle-class demand for self-education. For Shelley, biographical writing was supposed to, in her words, "form as it were a school in which to study the philosophy of history",  and to teach "lessons". Most frequently and importantly, these lessons consisted of criticisms of male-dominated institutions such as primogeniture.
Her conviction that such forces could improve society connects her biographical approach with that of other early feminist historians such as Mary Hays and Anna Jameson. Soon after Percy Shelley's death, Mary Shelley determined to write his biography. In , while she was working on the Lives , she prepared a new edition of his poetry, which became, in the words of literary scholar Susan J. Wolfson , "the canonizing event" in the history of her husband's reputation. Evading Sir Timothy's ban on a biography, Mary Shelley often included in these editions her own annotations and reflections on her husband's life and work.
Despite the emotions stirred by this task, Mary Shelley arguably proved herself in many respects a professional and scholarly editor. After she restored them in the second edition, Moxon was prosecuted and convicted of blasphemous libel , though the prosecution was brought out of principle by the Chartist publisher Henry Hetherington , and no punishment was sought. As Bennett explains, "biographers and critics agree that Mary Shelley's commitment to bring Shelley the notice she believed his works merited was the single, major force that established Shelley's reputation during a period when he almost certainly would have faded from public view".

After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein. It is as the wife of [Percy Bysshe Shelley] that she excites our interest.

Bennett published the first volume of Mary Shelley's complete letters. As she explains, "the fact is that until recent years scholars have generally regarded Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley as a result: William Godwin's and Mary Wollstonecraft's daughter who became Shelley's Pygmalion. The attempts of Mary Shelley's son and daughter-in-law to "Victorianise" her memory by censoring biographical documents contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a more conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest.
Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley's works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in her later years added to this impression. Commentary by Hogg , Trelawny , and other admirers of Percy Shelley also tended to downplay Mary Shelley's radicalism. Trelawny's Records of Shelley, Byron, and the Author praised Percy Shelley at the expense of Mary, questioning her intelligence and even her authorship of Frankenstein.
From Frankenstein' s first theatrical adaptation in to the cinematic adaptations of the 20th century, including the first cinematic version in and now-famous versions such as James Whale's Frankenstein , Mel Brooks ' Young Frankenstein , and Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein , many audiences first encounter the work of Mary Shelley through adaptation.

Mary Shelley stated in a letter that Elise had been pregnant by Paolo at the time, which was the reason they had married, but not that she had had a child in Naples. Elise seems to have first met Paolo only in September. A clear picture of Mary Shelley's relationship with Beauclerk is difficult to reconstruct from the evidence.
