“After it had been reported that in the village of Medvegia the so-called vampires had killed some people by sucking their blood, I was, by high degree of a local Honorable Supreme Command, sent there to investigate the matter thoroughly along with officers detailed for that purpose...”

So begins the 1732 military report by an Austrian official with respect to an incident he had been sent to investigate.

It is also the first piece in this collection that traces the development of the myth of the Vampire through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, culminating in the publication of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

With complete annotated texts and commentary describing the development of the myth, this collection contains the following pivotal pieces which led to the birth of the modern Vampire:

Visum et Repertum (Military Report, 1732) The Vampire (Heinrich August Ossenfelder, 1748) William and Helen (Sir Walter Scott’s adaptation of Gottfried August Bürger’s Lenore, 1794) The Bride of Corinth (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1797) Christabel (Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1797-1800) The Vampyre: A Tale (John William Polidori, 1819) Varney the Vampire: Or, The Feast of Blood (Select Chapters Only, John William Rymer, 1847) Carmilla (J. Sheridan LeFanu) Dracula (Bram Stoker, 1897).

About the Author:

Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker' s writing was greatly influenced by his father' s interest in theatre and his mother' s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.
