Item Description: London: Constable., 1897. First edition, first printing. Publisher's original yellow cloth with red titles to the front, rear and spine. The binding is firm with rubbing and fraying to the extremities and several short closed tears at the spine tips. The cloth is a little darkened but unusually the red lettering to the spine remains clear and legible. The contents are entirely complete. There is a previous owner's ink signature to the front pastedown above a partially removed W. H. Smith Circulating Library bookplate. The prelims are a lightly spotted and the hinges to the front and rear are cracked but holding, otherwise the text block is clean and bright throughout. Single blank terminal leaf without adverts to the rear, as called for. Housed in a purpose made quarter morocco solander case. An attractive example of a notoriously fragile book, rare in this entirely original condition, without repair or restoration of any description. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone. For the avoidance of doubt there is only one "state" of the first edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The first edition, as offered here and determined by those copies inscribed by the author on, or before publication day are printed on thicker stock bulking over an inch, with uncut page edges and with a single blank terminal leaf and without any adverts at rear. All other copies, often described as "later issues", printed on thinner stock and including either a single page advert listing 'Shoulder of Shasta' or a larger publisher's catalogue (in some cases advertising and with reviews of Dracula) are simply reprints. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers. Bookseller Inventory # 11890

Item Description: Archibald Constable and Company, Westminster, 1901. Octavo, pp. [1-11] 12-138 [139-144: ads], original pictorial gray-green wrappers printed in black. First printing of the revised text. Most copies of DRACULA take their text from the first edition of 1897 (or the first American edition of 1899, or a 1912 edition that corrected some typographical errors in the first edition). However, in 1901, another significantly different edition appeared, a paperback with a slightly abridged text, revised by Stoker himself at the request of the publisher. Stoker cut about 15% of the text, mainly from descriptions and conversations, in order to make the action scenes stand out a bit more. Some think this version reads better than the original edition. Spine professionally mended with just a bit of loss to author's name, text block (printed on pulp paper stock) a bit tanned, a very good copy. Actually, a remarkably nice copy of this fragile and scarce book. Housed in an attractive custom clamshell box. (#151822). Bookseller Inventory # 151822

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 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, 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."

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: Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Pp ix [including half-title and dedication page], 390, [blank]. Rebound in the same style as the original cloth binding in full canary yellow morocco with a boarder of single red fillet with title and author lettered in red, spine lettered in red, red endpapers, all edged gilt; publisher's original yellow cloth upper cover bound-in at rear. Occasional mild browning to leaves, but overall the text bright and clean throughout. The first issue (as determined by those copies inscribed by the author on publication day) was published in June 1887, and does not have any publisher's advertisement at the rear. Second and subsequent editions have the advertisement's). Later issues have one page (second issue) or more (subsequent issues) of advertisements with catalogue listings. 3000 copies of Dracula were sent to bookstores on 26 May 1897, and although reviews were mixed Charlotte Stoker wrote to her son: 'My dear it is splendid, a thousand miles beyond anything you have written before, and I feel certain will place you very high in the writers of the day. No book since Mrs. Shelly's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror.' Having written what was to become the most famous Gothic horror novel of all time, Stoker died on 20th April 1912, not long enough to see Dracula's immense cultural impact, and its many permutations in print and on the screen.

Item Description: Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company 1897, 1897. FIRST EDITION. Octavo. [i-vii], viii-ix, [1], 2-390, [1], blank; [1], advertisement for 'The Shoulder of Shasta; 16, catalogue. Original yellow cloth blocked in red, edges untrimmed. This copy comprises first edition sheets bound up slightly later with the 'The Shoulder of Shasta' advert and a 16-page catalogue inserted (dated 1898). The present copy's publisher list features an advert for Dracula to p.10 (importantly without its edition noted) and is entirely unopened/uncut. Other and later lists are noted, some promoting Dracula in '5th Edition'. The printing history of Dracula is complex; first issues (May 1897) are on thick paper and have no adverts at all; the second issue includes the 'Shasta' leaf; thinner text block copies follow, such as this, and contain an undated 16-page publisher's catalogue, of which later dated versions may include an advert for Dracula. There are no textual differences concerning the early printings. Our copy appears to be the fourth issue and is apparently an elusive one among dedicated Stoker collectors. Neat (and helpful) contemporary ink name dated 'April 1898'. Very clean internally, signs of respectful handling on the outside with a uniformly age-toned backstrip; A bright and pleasing copy in the original unsophisticated binding. A scarce Spring 1898 issue of one of the most important weird tales in the history of the weird, and one that enabled an entire generation of British male youth to witness Madeleine Smith without any clothes on, which is the kind of thing you remember all your life and which enables you to finally slip away into the great outer dark with less bitterness than might be supposed.

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!)
