    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 publisher¹s 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).

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
