Overview

Varney, the Vampire by James Malcolm Rymer -
The plot concerns the troubles that Sir Francis Varney inflicts upon the Bannerworths, a formerly wealthy family driven to ruin by their recently deceased father. Initially the Bannerworths consist of Mrs. Bannerworth and her adult children Henry, George and Flora.
A belief in the existence of Vampyres first took its rise in Norway and Sweden, from whence it rapidly spread to more southern regions, taking a firm hold of the imaginations of the more credulous portion of mankind.
The following romance is collected from seemingly the most authentic sources, and the Author must leave the question of credibility entirely to his readers, not even thinking that he his peculiarly called upon to express his own opinion upon the subject.
A pulp fiction vampire story.

    This is the most amazing edition of a gothic classic that I've ever seen. Anyone interested in the modern day vampire mythology must own this book. Beautifully bound and completely annotated this book is a must have addition to any coffee table or office. I haven't regretted this purchase for a minute. If you're interested in Poe, Stoker, or Shelly this book is for you. This book pre-dates Dracula and began most of the vampire lore that we still know and love today. I've read chapters of this book in other versions and online but this version is by far the most comprehensive and intelligent I've yet seen. I don't know how long Herr spent researching every aspect and reference in this book but it must have taken his brilliance to guide a team of researchers for at least three years to make a version this comprehensive. The notations in this version by Herr make this book not only a classic piece of Victorian 'penny dreadful' literature that stands alone as a monumental work of Victorian gothic art but now it's linked to contemporary gothic work that is not only poignant but insightful. From Dracula to Buffy and beyond Herr left nothing for any reader to want. Buy this book. If reading what could be the most influential piece of vampire literature ever written isn't enough it looks really cool on your coffee table. BUY THIS BOOK!!!
