Dracula's Guest - a short story by Bram Stoker

2 1/16" x 1 1/2"
74 pages, 5 illustrations
Limited edition of 50

We all know how the story goes: Jonathan Harker leaves the inn at the beginning of 'Dracula', and is dropped off at the crossroads by the coachman, who is afraid to take him any further.  But there is another part of the story, one that Stoker's editor (so the story goes) persuaded him to omit. In this version, Harker demands to be taken down a side road that leads to a long-abandoned village, with dire results.

This is the story of that dangerous digression: 'Dracula's Guest', published posthumously in 1914. It may have been a part of the novel, or it may not. The narrator is never named, and seems unlike the characterization of Harker in the novel. You can be the judge.

The book is bound in black and gold Japanese chiyogami paper with a separate spine of blood-red shantung bookcloth.
