Special Preview Edition (ARC) in wraps as issued. 1791 was the year it happened.I was 24, younger than you are now. But times were different then, I was a man at that age: the master of a large plantation just south of New Orleans. I had lost my wife in childbirth, and she and the infant had been buried less than half a year. I would have been happy to join them. I couldn't bear the pain of their loss. I longed to be released from it.
I wanted to lose it all... My wealth, my estate, my sanity.
Most of all, I longed for death. A release from the pain of living.
My invitation was open to anyone. To the whore at my side. To the pimp that followed. But it was a vampire that accepted it. The book has soiling, scattered small stains, creases, and a tear to front cover.
Internally there is a previous owners name and address as well an old tape stain, scattered soiling, and some spotting. A well worn but not unattractive example of this scarce Special Preview Edition which was issued before the first trade printing.This is the earliest available printed example of this seminal horror title. This example has been signed on the title page by Anne Rice. This is the first installment in Anne Rices Vampire Chronicles series, which now spans thirteen novels and counting, and center around the vampire Lestat. Widely, and correctly, considered one of the cornerstones of modern horror. Basis for the beloved 1994 adaptation of the same title which starred Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, a very young Kirsten Dunst, and Tom Cruise as Lestat. The film would be nominated for two Academy Awards, and it would win both. All books which are in dust jackets will be mailed with a clear archival dust jacket protector fitted.
