Stoker (Bram) The Lady of the Shroud


London, Heinemann, 1909.

First edition. 8vo. Original deep red cloth titled & decorated in gilt & black. Two pieces of Heinemann promotional ephemera advertising their 6 shilling novel series with The Lady of The Shroud listed, and a separate flyer for a work by Frank Danby (a.k.a. Julia Frankau).

Most other works by Stoker tend to suffer somewhat in the shadow of the monolith that is Dracula, and The Lady of the Shroud is in this category; a brisk and enthusiastic foray into disquieting spectres and family obsessions that opens with an excerpt from “The Journal of Occultism” in a rather trademark Stoker fashion. Scarce.
