    Anne Rice: Interview with the Vampire Review Copy. (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1976), first edition, 372 pages, black half-cloth and black boards with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), gilt-lustre dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Interview with the Vampire is the first entry in Rice's Vampire Chronicles, a series that numbers ten books and counting. The books center around Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman who was turned into a vampire in the 18th century. This copy has a review slip from Knopf laid-in touting some of the book's early achievements: Book-of-the-Month Club alternate selection, the novel's sale to Paramount Pictures, and a sizeable sale to paperback. It also lists the quantity of the first print run (25,000 copies), the number of pages (372), the retail cost ($8.95), and the publication date (May 5, 1976). The copy presented here is about fine, with minor wrinkling at the head and tail of the spine of the dust jacket, which also shows very minimal shelf-wear. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a review copy of the book that gave birth to a pop culture phenomenon. From the Ventura Collection.
