London: George Routledge & Sons, 1914. First edition. Hardcover. 12mo. 200pp. With "First Published in 1914" on the copyright page. 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 oiffset on the free endpapers where the dustwrapper ended. Otherwise this is a very nice copy. Neat ownership name on the front pastedown dated July, 1914.
In scarce, full color dustwrapper with art by Handforth. The dustwrapper bears the "2/- net" sticker 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Dracula's Guest' is a previously unpublished episode from an early draft of Dracula and is published here with eight other stories by Stoker.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.
