Stoker, Bram,

DRACULA'S GUEST

AND OTHER WEIRD STORIES

London, George Routledge & Sons, 1914. First edition, with "First Published in 1914" on the

copyright page. 12mo. 200pp. Publisher's linen-textured red cloth blocked in blind on the

spine and upper board, and with a gilt spine title. We note some foxing on the edges of the

textblock, a tiny spot on the upper board, and offset on the free endpapers where the

dustwrapper ended. Otherwise this is a very nice copy. Neat ownership inscrption on the

front pastedown dated July, 1914.

In scarce, full color dustwrapper with art by Handforth. The dustwrapper bears the "2/- net"

on the spine, and so is second state. There is a trace of roughness along the edges but it is in

near fine condition.

Dracula's Guest

is a previously unpublished episode from an early draft of

Dracula

and is

published here with eight other stories by Stoker.

Uncommon in first edition, and rare in dustwrapper.
