Stoker (Bram) Dracula
New York, Grosset & Dunlap, 1927.
Stage play tie-in edition. 8vo. 1p. advertisements (listing 14 titles). Original orange cloth. Dust-jacket, with publisher’s catalogue printed on reverse.
Issued to coincide with the hugely successful stage adaptation of Stoker’s classic of horror originally published 30 years earlier, which took to the Broadway stage in 1927, this is one of the most visually arresting editions of Dracula. The play starred Bela Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role, with Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing, roles the actors reprised for the famous 1931 film version.
