    Description

    First Edition, First Issue, of Dracula

    Bram Stoker. Dracula. Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897.

    First edition, the rare first issue printed on thicker uncoated paper, with the verso of the last integral leaf (2C4) blank with no ad for The Shoulder of Shasta and no inserted publisher┬╣s catalog at the end. Octavo. ix, [1], 390, [2, blank] pages.

    Publisher's yellow cloth, blocked and lettered in red. Binding soiled and browned as is usually seen with this particularly susceptible yellow cloth. Spine age-darkened and with slight extremity wear (as is always the case) and with head and tail of spine renewed. Hinges cracking but sound. Light occasional foxing. Overall, a good copy.

    Dalby 10(a).
