Dracula First Edition Found

Via Rare Book News, a report from the Northern Echo that an 1897 first edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula has been found "during a house clearance in Great Smeaton, near Northallerton." The house and book collection had "belonged to a retired midwife who was originally from the Hutton Rudby area."

"The first edition will be sold by auction [by Northallerton Auctions] at The Applegarth Salerooms, Northallerton, at approximately 3 p.m. on Friday, July 20." Recent sales of Dracula first editions suggest that the book could sell for more than £4,000.
