STOKER, Bram. ~ Dracula. Westminster [London]: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897.
8vo (190 × 125 mm.), pp. ix, [i], 390,  (adverts). Top edge of half-title and title unevenly opened at inside top corner. Original yellow cloth with red lettering. Very slightly loose at spine, light soiling. Ownership inscription to half-title in blue ink. An exceptional copy of a book rarely found in this condition: bright and unusually well-preserved, a near fine copy.
First edition. This superb copy is from the issue with the 16-page publisher’s catalogue at the rear, including an advert for Dracula “5th edition” and R. Austin Freeman's Travels in Ashanti and Jaman, both of which were published in 1898. The first issue was printed on thick paper and included no adverts at all, with the second issue with a one page advert for The shoulder of Shasta. Subsequent issues include the 16-page publisher’s catalogue, of which later issues include the advert for Dracula.
