Overview

Acting on behalf of his firm of solicitors, Jonathan Harker travels to the Carpathian Mountains to finalize the sale of England's Carfax Abbey to Transylvanian noble Count Dracula. Little does he realize that, in doing so, he endangers all that he loves. For Dracula is one of the Un-Dead--a centuries-old vampire who sleeps by day and stalks by night, feasting on the blood of his helpless victims. Once on English soil, the count sets his sights on Jonathan's circle of associates, among them his beloved wife Mina. To thwart Dracula's evil designs, Jonathan and his friends will have to accept as truth the most preposterous superstitions concerning vampires, and in the company of legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, embark on an unholy adventure for which even their worst nightmares have not prepared them.
 
First published in 1897, Bram Stoker's Dracula established the ground rules for virtually all vampire fiction written in its wake. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, decorative stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers, and an attractive addition to any home library.

Editorial Reviews

These inexpensive Collectible Editions are Barnes & Noble exclusives, only available in our stores and on our website. Each of these novels is by any standard a classic; from Oscar Wilde's ominous The Picture of Dorian Gray and Bram Stoker's eerie Dracula to the strange human mysteries of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and the nuanced social satire of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Attractively bound and exquisitely readable, these Barnes & Noble Bargain deluxe classics boast a price less than many, if not most paperbacks. Frugal shoppers can fetch even greater savings by purchasing the handsome boxed set, containing all six leatherbound hardcovers for just $70.00! Arguably the best buy of the month.
