    More Information:

    [Vampires]. Dom Augustin Calmet. Dissertations Upon the Apparitions of Angels, Daemons, and Ghosts, and Concerning the Vampires of Hungary, Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia. London: M. Cooper, 1754. First edition in English.

    Octavo. [xxviii], 370, [2, blank] pages. Bound to style in modern full brown levant morocco, five raised bands, marbled endleaves. Minor rubbing to binding, some toning, offsetting, and very minor intermittent soiling in text, a few pages with marginal wear, neat ink notes on the Preface page. Good.

    With passages about evil spirits, dark magic, and bloodthirsty vampires. Calmet was skeptical about vampires, but his book only stoked the interest (and fear) of the public, leading to a new popularity of vampires.

    From the John McLaughlin/Book Sail Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
