Description

    Inscribed and Signed by Bram Stoker

    Bram Stoker. The Mystery of The Sea. London: William Heinemann, 1902.

    First edition, third impression. Inscribed and signed by the author on the age-toned flyleaf: "A.L. Quick from Bram Stoker, Christmas 1908." Octavo. 498 pages including Appendix, 32 pages of publisher's advertisements at end.

    Publisher's black cloth, titled and decorated in green and gold. General scuffing and wear to edges, bumped corners. Spine ends are moderately worn and damaged, with a half-inch tear at spine head. Partial separation of pastedown at front hinge. Light age toning and occasional smudges on interior pages. Overall, a very good copy.

    One of Stoker's most successful novels, The Mystery of The Sea is a wild ride on the four horses of the literary world - suspense, horror, adventure, and romance. A wonderful and nearly forgotten tale of the treasure of the Spanish Armada, ancient curses, secret codes and shipwrecks, as told by the father of the modern horror story.
