Robert Hale, London - first UK edition, ISBN 0709015569, 1984. Hardcover, 8¾" x 5½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Dark-brown cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 39 b&w illustrations (photographs & drawings), Thirty-pages 'Vampire, Werewolf, and Necrophile in Literature, Theater, and Cinema', appendices, bibliography/filmography, and index. Dr Raymond McNally presents the true history of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, the ancient "vampire" of Transylvania. She is reputed to have murdered close to 700 young women in the belief that their blood would keep her young. Dr McNally recounts her life in detail, using forgotten feudal records - previously untranslated Latin and Hungarian historical accounts - of the Blood Countess's crimes and trials for witchcraft. He separates the actual woman from the legendary vampire, recreating a true tale more horrifying than the myth. . The book also features a modern analysis of historical and present-day vampires and werewolves and histories of the horror novel and movie.
