    Beschreibung: London Archibald Constable and Company 1897, 1897. First Edition, First Issue on thicker paper with one blank leaf at rear and no ads with the original endpapers. Presentation copy signed by the author, Bram Stoker, to Frank A. Munsey (1854-1925), the great American newspaper and magazine publisher. Inscribed: ÒFrank A. Munsey from Bram Stoker, 22.6.97.Ó Undoubtedly, Stoker presented the book to Munsey in an unsuccessful hope that Munsey would serialize Dracula in one of his magazines. MunseyÕs pulp magazines Argosy, Munsey's Magazine, All-Story Magazine all had distinguished records of printing fantasy fiction. This book is beautifully bound in a modern full black morocco leather binding with gilt-stamped red labels, raised bands, and tooling. With gilt inner dentelles with terrific blood red marbled endpapers. Enclosed in a matching morocco and cloth clamshell box. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 13600J

    Beschreibung: Constable, London, 1897. Hardcover. Zustand: Very good. First Edition. 1st edition, 1st printing with no ad for The Shoulder of Shasta on the last integral leaf (2C4). 1st binding with no publisher's catalog. Original cloth, soiled, wear to corners and tips, inner paper hinges undetectably strengthened, small pen mark to page 54, else very good. A bibliographically correct Dracula is much scarcer than widely assumed so if you want the real 1st edition (see below) and a sound copy of it, ours is for you. In a reaction to the overthought and over explained, let's hike the bibliographical path of fact (facts aren't interested in your feelings) so as to carve a sturdy chronology for the 1st edition of Dracula, eliminating superfluous data, nefariously deceptive argot, and the dizzying abuse of terms, while remembering that few bookseller's sales tactics are more sinful than knowing a book's bibliography and lying about it for undeserved profit, and few disputes are more bitter than the quarrels between those who believe an idea today and those who will believe that idea tomorrow. 1. The 1st edition (1st impression): All 3,000 copies of the 1st printing have the last integral leaf blank, with no ad for The Shoulder of Shasta. Copies with the Shasta ad, even with no printed avowal that they are later impressions, are not later issues, or later bindings, or later states, they are all reprints (the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th printings), and in today's candor they should not be called 1st editions (despite A. B. A. A.'s archaic glossary of terms), and when they are, it is a wicked duplicity, rationalized by now antiquated terminology, misused to mislead. And you should pay no more, percentagewise, for a Dracula with the Shasta ad than you would pay for any other book that stated "2nd impression" or "2nd printing" or "2nd edition" or had a number line ending in "2" or "3" or "4" (Book Code). There were 2 bindings of the 1st printing, priority as below. A. Bound without a publisher's catalog. The rational argument for the priority of our state A is that all of Stoker's presentation copies dated in late May and June, all of the earliest publisher's presentation copies, a deposit copy, and all the early review copies, have no catalog (there may be an outlier but in my 45 years I've seen dozens of these markers). This evidence should be dispositive. B. Bound with an undated publisher's advertisement catalog listing no books published after 1897. The last book published that's listed in this ad catalog is Warren's editing of The Faerie Queene, its first 2 volumes published early in 1897 (Dalby's bibliography missed it). The frail argument for the equality of state B is convoluted, with 4 "ifs", but here it is. If all 3,000 copies of the 1st printing were bound before publication (there is no indication of this), and if the ad catalog was inserted into the first available copies until the supply was exhausted, and if the remaining copies of the 1st printings were bound without a catalog seeing as no subsequent catalog was yet available, then it could be fantasized, that if the publisher aimed to get the maximum number of copies with his ads into the hands of the retail buying public, he might have chosen, as a business strategy, to send author's copies to Stoker, deposit copies to wherever, free copies to reviewers, and publisher's copies to friends, without the catalog. Reality: The analysis for 1-A stands beyond lucid argument. It's the 1st binding. The analysis for 1-B, hinging on the publisher intentionally, exclusively, and successfully, selecting those copies with an ad catalog for retail sale only, is an illusory strategy that has not been demonstrated elsewhere in late Victorian publishing. Also, Dracula (published May 26) did not sell all that fast and it is almost certain that not all copies were initially bound, and the B binding was in fact bound later, adding the catalog. It's the 2nd binding, and the 2nd issue. 2. The later editions: Copies of all the earliest re-printings carry an ad for The Shoulder of Shasta on the final integral leaf. The fact that the leaf is integral to the last signature is what separates this ad point from the usual ones as it is part of the text's printing process and inseparable from the actual text, and it was printed with the text. This is much like additions to, or deletions from, the text in books of this vintage that often signify later printings. Clearly then, all copies with the Shasta ad are reprints, being the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th printing, and calling them "1st edition, 2nd state" or "1st edition, 2nd issue" is a charade, and if you own one, you have been duped. The 5th printing added "fifth impression" to the verso of the title page. Trying to divide and identify the 2nd, 3rd and 4th printings from one another is imprecise but the 2nd printing has the Shasta ad and most copies of it were bound with no inserted catalog of other ads following this leaf. The 3rd printing also carries the Shasta ad and most copies of it have an undated inserted catalog following this leaf listing some books published after Dracula's May 26, 1897 publication date. The 4th printing still includes the Shasta ad and most copies of it have an inserted catalog dated 1898 following this leaf. And, as noted, copies of the 5th printing have the notation, "fifth impression." NOTE: Mixed states (bindings) occur but it is the blank integral last page with no Shasta ad, on which one should reliably lean as the definer of the 1st edition. NOTE: At some point the supply of paper used on the earliest copies ran out and the new supply of paper was coated and thinner. Since no copies of the 1st printing were printed on thinner paper, and many copies of the 2nd printing were printed on thicker paper, it isn't a factor, only a distracting confuser. Ignore it. BEWARE: Reprints in original cloth are seen with the Shasta ad removed and replaced with a blank leaf of similar paper. Savvy buyers should examine this area with all the care exercised by porcupines during sex, and mis. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 494

    Beschreibung: London: Archibald Constable, 1897, 1897. First Edition; presumed first printing; undetermined issue (although often referred to, perhaps correctly, as the second), with four leaves of advertisements for books published no later than 1896. Apparently there were at least two printings, the second of which is on a coated stock and bulks noticeably thinner than the earlier one: the sheets, not counting advertisements or catalogues, bulk approximately 21 - 22 mm. v. 27 mm. The quality of that printing is obviously inferior. This copy is clearly that earlier printing (on thicker paper). The (presumed) two printings were bound and stamped identically. The earliest (as supposed noting those copies inscribed by the author on or prior to publication day, or with review blind-stamps) have no publisher's advertisements at all. Later issues may have one (if one page ads are integral that suggests a separate printing) or more pages of ads and catalogues, which defines them as 'issues' in that the printed sheets were bound on more than a single occasion by the publisher, as orders were received, or perhaps to advertise other publications. Given that the last leaf in this copy is blank (followed by separately printed bound-in publisher's advertisements), it appears likely that this copy is from the same, presumed earliest printing, as in those presentation or review copies. This is somewhat speculative, and while confident that this chronology is substantially correct, there may well have been multiple printings or as yet undiscovered complexities. To provoke further headaches for the bibliographically inclined, copies bound for the author's use or for review may not have been bound earlier than others, but rather prepared for this particular use and never actually issued to the book buying public. Publishers and authors had little incentive or reason to anticipate future bibliographical concerns, and their mostly unhelpful records reflect this attitude. This copy is in above average condition, slightly musty, and the cloth appears to have undergone some cleaning; the spine is a bit darkened; tiny tear at the very edge of the title page, and very light foxing; that said, overall, this is a very good copy, truly superior to its brethren; in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 35242

    Beschreibung: ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE AND COMPANY, 1897. Hardcover. Zustand: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Archibald Constable, London, 1897 FIRST Edition, FIRST Printing An excellent clean, bright example of this first printing title bound with advertisements in the back (identifying this book as a first printing, later issue). The first edition printed sheets were printed by the publisher in one-go, but then bound on more than a single occasion by the publisher, as orders were received, or perhaps to advertise other publications. The earliest first printing ?first issue? was bound with no advertisements. ?Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker?s still-living creation are surely the undead? (New York Times Review of Books). Stoker?s ?Dracula? laid the framework for an entire genre of literature and film. The book is in superb condition for this title being firmly bound, and is quite readable without the usual cracked hinges or broken bindings. The original yellow cloth still remains in bright condition, with lovely red titles to the front, rear boards and the spine, with the front titles showing only just a touch of fading. The book has sharp corners and no edgewear. The end papers appear to be replaced. The book is remarkably clean, all the pages intact, with no stains, no writing, no bent pages, and no foxing. Please see detailed images. No dust jacket as issued. An excellent clean, bright example of this first printing title bound with advertisements and with the correct 1897 date to the title page. A very desirable, scarce title. Displays well on the shelf. This copy is a lovely, very desirable, scarce title in clean, bright condition, and is one of the scarce first edition, later issues with the correct 1897 date on the title page! ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our ABE store for other Rare Horror and SciFi listings. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 001553

    Beschreibung: Grosset & Dunlap, 1897. Hardcover. Zustand: Good. Copyright date 1897, but this copy is likely a later 1920s edition - Grosset & Dunlap wasn't founded until 1898. Still a scarce title, and likely a 1st US edition (1927). Orange cloth boards, no DJ. Cover scuffed and shelfworn with age, edges frayed. Spine jacket chipped and peeling in multiple spots, but no pieces missing. Front and rear hinges loose, with webbing showing at rear hinge. Generally fragile, but intact. Spine cracked. Previous owner's name in pencil on front endpaper. Some yellowing to page edges, light creasing to a couple pages. Text clean and unmarked, no marginalia or underlining. Overall good copy, and a rarely-seen printing of Stoker's revolutionary horror novel. Great reading/study copy. May have highlights and/or notes. Ships Fast! Satisfaction Guaranteed!.
