What I saw was the Count’s head coming out from the window. I did not see the face, but I knew the man by the neck and the movement of his back and arms. In any case I could not mistake the hands which I had had so many opportunities of studying. I was at first interested and somewhat amused, for it is wonderful how small a matter will interest and amuse a man when he is a prisoner. But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over the dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings. At first I could not believe my eyes. I thought it was some trick of the moonlight, some weird effect of shadow; but I kept looking, and it could be no delusion. I saw the fingers and toes grasp the corners of the stones, worn clear of the mortar by the stress of years, and by thus using every projection and inequality move downwards with considerable speed, just as a lizard moves along a wall.    
When estate agent solicitor’s clerk Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to assist Count Dracula with the purchase of his London house, he discovers more about his client and his castle than he might wish.…

Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, originally titled The Un-Dead, was first published in 1897. It has had a pro­found influence on world literature. It has enjoyed enormous popularity since its publication and is singu­larly responsible for spawning an extraordinary vampire subculture in the second half of the twentieth century. Over a thousand novels and hundreds of films feature Dracula or other vampires, not to mention the countless cartoons, comics, and tele­vision programmes which were ultimately inspired by Stoker’s work.

This edition includes the short story “Dracula’s Guest”, which was published in 1914 by Stoker’s widow, Florence, who said of the story: “It was originally excised owing to the length of the book, and may prove of interest to the many readers of what is considered my husband’s most remarkable work.”
