This Special Preview Edition is the very scarce pre-publication copy. The front cover contains publisher's promotional blurb, which reads (in full): "The debut of a dazzling storyteller. Her soft-spoken Vampire - pouring out the hypnotic, shocking, erotically charged confessions of his first 200 years among the 'living dead' - is a major creation. Her sustained feat of storytelling is like no other you have read - and we believe Anne Rice's debut will be one of the most exciting since John Fowles first dazzled us with The Collector and Thomas Tryon with The Other". Printed in the USA. Slight handling wear, light creasing & trace of spotting to spine, very faint toning to cover, mild shelfwear to bottom of book block, otherwise overall a VERY GOOD nice clean tight solid softcover copy. 372pp. SPECIAL PREVIEW EDITION with additional SIGNED items laid in. UNIQUE & RARE. Size: 20.5 x 13.5cm [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
