Item Description: London Archibald Constable and Company 1897, 1897. First Edition, First Issue on thicker paper with one blank leaf at rear and no ads with the original endpapers. Presentation copy signed by the author, Bram Stoker, to Frank A. Munsey (1854-1925), the great American newspaper and magazine publisher. Inscribed on the bookÕs publication day: ÒFrank A. Munsey from Bram Stoker, 22.6.97.Ó Undoubtedly, Stoker presented the book to Munsey in an unsuccessful hope that Munsey would serialize Dracula in one of his magazines. MunseyÕs pulp magazines Argosy, Munsey's Magazine, All-Story Magazine all had distinguished records of printing fantasy fiction. This book is eautifully bound in a modern full black morocco leather binding with gilt-stamped red labels, raised bands, and tooling. With gilt inner dentelles with terrific blood red marbled endpapers. Enclosed in a matching morocco and cloth clamshell box. Bookseller Inventory # 13600J

Item Description: Constable, 1897. First edition, first issue, printed on thicker stock with uncut page edges and with no adverts at rear. Original yellow cloth with red lettering. Covers dusty, with browning to the spine but the red lettering clear throughout. The cloth is generally free from wear with just a small snag to the head of the spine. Internally extremely fresh with the hinges tight. Wholly free from any form of cleaning or repair. As genuine a copy as you could wish to see, and by the standards of this book, which is so fragile, in very good condition indeed. Early printings of Dracula come in various states. Copies with a blank final text leaf and no pages of adverts are considered the earliest as all copies inscribed by Stoker on the day of publication are in this state. Issued slightly later is an printing with the final integral leaf now containing an advert for 'The Shoulder of Shasta', and then in subsequent years issues with a further sixteen page catalogue and later still on thinner paper. Although not noted as such, these are essentially reprints. Fine copies of the later issues do occur in commerce, but nice copies of the first issue are many times rarer. "Easily the most influential supernatural novel ever written and the origin of the entire vampire 'industry'. Although filmed and adapted many times for stage and radio, no performance has yet managed to truly capture the atmosphere and originality of the novel itself." (Wilson - Shadows in the Attic) Shadows in the Attic p. 461. Bookseller Inventory # 16655

Item Description: Archibald Constable and Company, Westminster, 1897. First Edition. FIRST PRINTING, FIRST ISSUE, with page [392] blank [i.e. with no ad for the Shoulder of Shasta], and with no terminal catalogue. The First Printing is also known to be on thicker paper, bulking a little over an inch and with the edges uncut, as is the case here. Importantly, though, this is one of the VERY EARLIEST COPIES, being one of a small number sent out by the publisher for review. According to Stoker bibliographer Richard Dalby, "the exact date of publication of Dracula is uncertain, but is generally believed to be within the last week of May, coinciding with the earliest newspaper reviews." He goes on to say that copies of the First Issue with "the words Presented by Archibald Constable & Co. blindstamped on the top right corner of the title-page, signify very early copies sent out for review." [Bram Stoker: A Bibliography. Desert Island Books. 2004. pp. 55-56.] This is one such copy. Publisher's original yellow cloth, lettered in red on the covers and spine. Rebacked, preserving the original spine which is soiled and faded. There is some fading and a few spots of discoloration to the covers as well, though less severe. Internally, the front free endpaper is absent, else the book is complete and quite clean. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 000124

Item Description: Archibald Constable and Company, Westminster, 1897. First Edition. The true FIRST PRINTING, being on thicker paper [the sheets bulking a little over an inch], with the pages untrimmed, and with the final leaf [pp. 391/392] blank [i.e. WITHOUT the ad for the Shoulder of Shasta]. Richard Dalby, in his 1983 bibliography of Stoker, states that "later issues of the first edition carry an advertisement for The Shoulder of Shasta on the rear flyleaf [392]" and that the "publishers cannot confirm any other points regarding status of the first issue, nor the exact publishing date." This copy also has an eight-page terminal catalogue beginning with an advertisement for The Amazing Marriage by George Meredith, ending with one for The Whitehall Shakespeare, and carrying no mention of Dracula. Dalby incorporated this variant into the revised and expanded version of his bibliography published in 2004, inserting it into his chronology as a new 'second' issue, while relegating copies with the Shasta ad [with or without an additional 16-page catalogue] to 'third' issue status. But this is not entirely satisfying. Dalby acknowledges that there were several printings prior to the stated "Fifth Edition" of 1898, but he persists in using a terminology solely of 'issues'. Since page 391/392 is an integral part of the final 8-page gathering [2C], which includes the last six pages of text, the absence or presence of the Shasta ad almost certainly distinguishes between printings rather than issues. Terminal catalogues, conversely, would have been prepared separately and inserted, and would more likely differentiate between issues than printings. So, while the eight-page catalogue may be an issue point, as Dalby suggests, the integral final blank leaf proves this copy to be from the very earliest identifiable printing. There are a few spots of discoloration to the front and back cover, a few minor nicks to the spine ends, and some darkening to the spine, though less than usual. There is a superficial hairline crack along the front inner hinge and the bottom two inches of the back inner hinge, not in any way affecting the book's soundness. Internally, it is very clean. An appealing copy, very good, and quite scarce thus. Dalby, 2004 10(b). Book. Bookseller Inventory # 000063

Item Description: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing, First State: with one blank leaf at the back of the book with no advertisement, WITHOUT the ad for the Shoulder of Shasta, WITHOUT any terminal catalogue; and printed on thicker stock with uncut page edges. Early printings of Dracula come in various states. Copies with a blank final text leaf and no pages of adverts are considered the earliest as all copies. (Please note that Richard Dalby, in his 1983 bibliography of Stoker, states that ¿later issues of the first edition carry an advertisement for The Shoulder of Shasta on the rear flyleaf [392]¿ and that the ¿publishers cannot confirm any other points regarding status of the first issue, nor the exact publishing date.¿) Thus the copies with Shoulder Of Shasta ad only, or with a terminal catalogue would be considered a second or later printing, and the books containing both the Shoulder Of Shasta ad in addition to a terminal catalogue to the rear of the book are third printings or later. To any extent All of these variations are considered reprints of the first edition, first printing. A very good copy of this scarce, highly collectible title. Rebacked, preserving the original cloth spine which was fully present but is soiled and faded. The boards otherwise have some fading/age toning and a few spots of discoloration to the covers. All pages present and are overall clean with the common scattered foxing, and handling marks. Original end papers present, but with the front fly leaf paper absent and with a small tear to the rear paste down. The binding is tight and square and the reback has made the book quite sound and not fragile (and therefore even readable!). Scripted owner names to the front end paper. Please see images for details. A great copy of this landmark book in the scarce original boards and in the true first state, at a great price for this title. MANY ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for other rare book titles. Bookseller Inventory # 000757

Item Description: London: Archibald Constable, 1897, 1897. First Edition; presumed second (?) printing; undetermined issue, with an advertisement for Stoker's The Shoulder of Shasta following the text and with an additional 16 page publisher's catalogue, advertising R. Austin Freeman's Travels in Ashanti and Jaman, published in 1898. Apparently there were at least two printings, the second of which is on a coated stock and bulks noticeably thinner than the earlier one (the sheets, not counting advertisements or catalogues, bulking approximately 21 - 22 mm. v. 27 mm). The quality of that printing is clearly inferior. The (presumed) two printings were bound and stamped identically. The earliest (as determined by those copies inscribed by the author on publication day) have no publisher's advertisements at all. Later issues may have one or more pages of ads and catalogues. Admittedly, while all this is somewhat speculative, it is largely based on this cataloguer's examination of numerous copies over many years. While confident that this chronology is substantially correct, there may well have been several, rather than two, printings. Hinges cracking; some soiling; owner's blind stamp on the front free endpaper. Bookseller Inventory # 25256

Original publisher's yellow cloth, bordered and lettered in red on boards and spine. Boards lightly soiled, red-stamping faded. Spine darkend and soiled.

Previous owner’s old ink signature dated 1898 on front free endpaper. Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown. Some pages of ads unopened, with some pages of ads opened roughly. Still, a very good copy of the first issue of this classic, which is scarce in any condition. Housed in quarter black morocco clamshell case.

[392]; second issue with this ad but no catalogue inserted at back; third issue with Shoulder of Shasta ad on p. [392] and the catalogue seen here (with no general date but clearly from 1897 [see bottom of page 7]); and fourth issue with inserted catalogue dated 1898. Variances in paper stock are not issue points. Dalby 10 (a). HBS 65726. $7,500. Bookseller Inventory # 65726

Item Description: Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii-ix [x] [1] 2-390 [391: blank] [392: ad for The Shoulder of Shasta on page (392)] [note: dedication leaf is tipped in and not part of gathering (A)], original mustard cloth, front, spine, and rear panels stamped in red. First edition, second (or third) printing. Bibliographically, a complex book: this copy is part of the second printing (or third printing) which printed an advertisement for Stoker's THE SHOULDER OF SHASTA on page [392] -- this page is blank in all first printing copies. According to Dalby 10c, this is the "third issue of [the] first edition," but it is a later printing, not a later issue. The most famous and influential of all vampire novels. "Although it is based in part on the crude VARNEY, THE VAMPIRE and the superior 'Carmilla' by LeFanu, DRACULA remains the definitive treatment of the classical vampire, a work of great imagination and conviction. While it is generally conceded that it has technical weaknesses -- wooden characters, sentimental writing, needless complexity -- its virtues overweigh its flaws and it is one of the great classics of supernatural fiction." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1546.

Item Description: Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, early issue, printed on thicker paper that bulks over 1 inch, with leaf 391/392 blank (lacking the "Shoulder of Shasta" advertisement), with an 8 page publisher's catalog at the rear of the text. Finely bound in full navy crushed morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting teal morocco labels with gilt lettering to the spine, gilt ruling to spine compartments and bands, spine compartments featuring bats stamped in gilt, cream laid endpapers. Near fine, sturdy binding, a few faint spots to the otherwise fresh and clean pages. A bright copy in a beautiful binding. Housed in a custom slipcase. This copy is an early issue of the first edition. The earliest issues of Dracula were issued on thick paper, contained a blank final leaf (391/392), and no terminal publisher's advertisements. Later issues of the first edition were printed on thinner paper, contain an advertisement for "Shoulder of Shasta" on the rear flyleaf, and included a 16 page publisher's catalog. This copy has the paper thickness and rear flyleaf as called for in first issues and none of the indications of a later issue. The 8 page catalog included in this volume would have been inserted with the first issue pages, thereby indicating an early issue of the first printing as later issues would have been printed separately and would include different sheets. Richard Dalby, in his 1983 bibliography of Stoker, states that, aside from the points indicating later issues, "publishers cannot confirm any other points regarding status of the first issue, nor the exact publishing date." Accordingly, of the mixed states that comprise intermediate issues, this copy is among the earliest. Dracula is an epistolary novel by Bram Stoker in which the vampire character Count Dracula makes his literary debut; the plot is narrated through a series of letters and newspaper documents written by or relating to the book's main characters. An example of the invasion literature that was popular in the British Empire in the late 19th century, Dracula received only moderate critical acclaim upon its publishing but grew in popularity when it was performed on stage and later made into a film.

DRACULA, Doubleday & McClure, 1899, first American edition, some light wear and tear to the spine extremities, some light soiling to the covers, but still most certainly just about a very good copy in the publishers original binding with unbroken inner hinges and with the marvelous pictorial image on the front cover of Dracula's castle on a hill top surrounded by flying bats with a setting sun unblemished. The source book for the films of the same name and the countless other spinoffs that followed. An obvious cornerstone book in the building of a library of suspense, horror and fantasy.

Item Description: Archibald Constable & Company, London, 1897. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good-. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First edition, 2nd isuue. This copy has the eight-page terminal catalogue beginning with an advertisement for The Amazing Marriage by George Meredith, ending with one for The Whitehall Shakespeare, and carrying no advert for Dracula without the ad for The Shoulder of Shasta. Richard Dalby, in his revised 2004 bibliography of Stoker, categorises this as the second issue of the first edition, the first issue being without adverts. He also corrects the previously held view that the second issue comprised copies with The Shoulder of Shasta advert on the rear flyleaf, relegating that copy to the third issue. Original yellow cloth boards with red titles to boards and spine and single red rule to boards. 8vo., 390pp + 8pp ads. (top edges of ads unopened). The boards have some light spotting marks and a few small stains - please see images. The tips of three fore edge corners are rubbed through just exposing a tiny amount of board, the two bottom corners are lightly bumped. The spine is significantly browned with chipping to the surface cloth at the spine tips and a couple of small tears on the spine, one with a small triangular area of loss 5mm x 4mm x 3mm. The binding is tight and square. Iinternally, the book is in very good condition indeed. The front paste-down has a small bookplate of Lionel Henry Cust, also the signature of Lionel Cust and the date, August/97 to the top corner of the title page. There is superficial cracking to the front and back inner hinges but nothing affecting the soundness of the book. Sir Lionel Henry Cust (1859 - 1929) was an English art historian and museum director. He was director of the National Portrait Gallery from 1895 to 1909 and Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures from 1901 -1927. He co-edited The Burlington Magazine from 1909 to 1919. If you would like further images of any aspect of the book (we have a number on file) or have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Bookseller Inventory # 000079

Item Description: Archibald Constable and Company, Westminster, 1897. Original Cloth. Book Condition: Good Plus. No Jacket. Very Early Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. We offer an early impression of the first edition of 'Dracula', which shows signs of wear, but is still quite a pleasing copy. It has the advertisement for 'The Shoulder of Shasta' by Bram Stoker and 16 pages of publisher's advertisements printed on thick paper, which includes 'Dracula' itself. This edition comprises half-title page, title-page, dedication page, contents and 490 pages of text, plus the section of publishers advertisements. The book has been soundly re-cased with the original yellow cloth spine, strengthened underneath by fresh cloth. The original yellow cloth spine has browned and the red titling is rather blurred and faded; the original cloth, that has been strenthened by the new cloth, is chipped with some loss at head and tail; there is also a small patch of fraying below the title and a small tear below the publisher's name. The fresh yellow cloth can just be seen at the foot of the spine where the original cloth has been tucked over. The front and rear board are much brighter with the red titling in bright condition. The boards are somewhat dust- marked and the front board has a few small brown stains. The corners of the boards are bumped with loss of cloth on the tips. The book retains its original front endpaper, but has new paper showing down the inner hinge. There is a neat owner's inscription in ink in quite a florid hand (Chas Hemingfield) on front free endpaper, which is repeated in much smaller writing at the head of the upper margin at the beginning of the first chapter. The endpapers are slightly foxed and marked, while the back endpaper has been carefully replaced with a contemporary sheet of old paper which is an exact match in colour and texture as the original front endpaper. The dedication page is quite browned and fragile, the text is clear but many pages have some quite dark smudgy fox-spots and the page edges are darkened and foxed. Overall this collectible volume has been soundly restored and, despite its darkened spine, is satisfying to handle.It is now kept in a stout and handome yellow cloth folding drop-down case well made by Maureen Duke , President of the Royal Society of Bookbinders in England. The box is titled in red letters, matching the red titling of the book. Please ask if you would like to see any more photographs of our copy. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001027

Item Description: Federal Theatre Projects, n.d. [circa 1938], Los Angeles, 1938. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Original script. v + 79 pages bound by a metal clip in two holes on the lefthand margin. Mimeographed. If this was originally issued in wrappers, only the rear wrapper remains. Light edgewear, but overall a fine example of an uncommon Dracula text. Deane and Balderston's play is the basis for both the Bela Lugosi movie and the later Frank Langella movie of Stoker's novel as well as the root source for many, if not most, Dracula adaptations. This script probably dates from between 1933 (the publication date of a Samuel French acting edtion) and 1938 (the production date of play by the Federal Art Project). Although a copy of the original poster for the 1938 production of the play is in the Library of Congress, we can find no copies of this script in any location. Bookseller Inventory # b5867

Item Description: GROSSET AND DUNLAP, 1931. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First photoplay edition. Stunning, extremely rare example of the Grosset and Dunlap 1897 reprint, with a scarce NEAR FINE UNRESTORED original jacket. The book appears as though it went through a time machine! These are considered dated 1931 in conjunction with the Universal Picture¿s Photo Play starring Bela Lugosi. The book still has its scarce original dust jacket without ANY of the usual color fading and without any of the typical brittleness found with the paper from either the book itself or the dust jacket. Scarce stunning condition and a ¿one of a kind¿ example of this famous photoplay. The book also comes with two cards signed by 2 of the actors from the 1931 photoplay, David Manners and Carla Laemmle. Additional images are included with this listing to show another copy of this book also with a ¿near fine¿ original jacket, however I have placed the two books side by side only to show the immense difference in the color tones of the jackets. (Having seen many copies of this original jacket, one can say that it is shocking to see what the true original color tones are actually supposed to be, as the paper used for both the jacket and book was not of high quality, and as such the jacket is usually found with the red color dies turning orange and the off-white backround turning quite brown.) The actual book itself is in equally stunning fine condition, with crisp vibrant red boards, and creamy white pages with NO toning, NO brittleness, no writing, no stains¿just perfect. This is most unusual as this book does not hold up well and is often found with discolored boards, with badly fraying, ripped and dried spines. This book has sharp corners, the cloth is hot red and even still haS the natural sheen left to the boards. The titles are strong and unfaded. The binding is tight and square and appears as if it were never fully opened. The end papers are clean and bright with a ¿U¿ on the front end paper and a neatly printed inscription (inscription not shown as the signature cards lie on the ffep covering it). The internal pages are creamy white, supple, flat and in perfect condition with no marks, no foxing, no ANYTHING¿. Deep black unfaded top stain applied by publisher. The book appears as unread. Please see many images for more details. This book has been signed by two of the actors from the photoplay. Both are on loosely laid in bookplates located on the front end papers. The first is a signature of David Manners who portrayed Jonathan Harker, with the second signature by Carla Laemmle. The book comes with its stunnning scarce UNRESTORED original dust jacket and shows as a near fine example. As mentioned, other copies of this book in original jackets sell for $2000 and up¿and they are with the typical browning/toning/brittle appearances found as the paper used for this jacket does not hold up well. This book must have been kept in a dark place for 80 years to still retain the true original colors found with this jacket. The jacket has no edgewear but some slight rubbing/tiny edgewear to edges and very tip of corner folds only, one tiny 1/2¿ intact tear to back, otherwise the jacket is perfect. Tiny very faded 3 letters written in pencil on spine. The jacket has strong vibrant colors, is still soft and supple, with even the underside of the jacket still bright. The jacket otherwise has no rips, no tears, no chips, no edgewear, no fading, and no foxing. Please see detailed images. Fun, special and unique example of one of the most sought after photoplay books in spectacular condition. Trully an investment piece and the perfect gift for a photoplay or horror collector! This rare book, with original, but ¿average¿ condition jackets (as shown as the comparison book in the images with the aged dust jacket), typically sells for $2200 and up (and that is without any signatures!)
