Dracula


The last I saw of Count Dracula was his kissing his hand to me, with a red light of triumph in his eyes, and with a smile that Judas in hell might be proud of. Dracula is a preeminent work of horror literature, containing one of the best gothic villains of all time. When Jonathan Harker stays with Count Dracula in his crumbling Transylvanian castle, he is greatly unsettled by the man. After enduring a series of bizarre events, Harker realises he is being imprisoned by the Count and barely escapes with his life. Meanwhile, a similarly curious set of circumstances are happening in England: A huge wolf-like creature is seen to leap from the deck of a Russian ship with a mysteriously absent crew; a young woman develops a strange wasting disease and red marks on her throat; a patient at the lunatic asylum experiences increasingly strange delusions. A small band of heroes set to investigate these worrying events, led by Doctor Van Helsing who consults ancient texts to discover the chilling enormity of what they face... Brought to you here in this handsome slipcased edition and including wonderful pen and ink illustrations, Bram Stoker's Dracula can be treasured in all its gothic glory.

The Iliad


The heroic story of the siege of Troy is as enthralling today as it ever was. The Greeks are entering the tenth year of their war with the Trojans, but their armies are fractured and their best warrior Achilles has abandoned the battle on a mission of revenge.

This collector's edition, presented in a handsome slipcase, provides an accessible prose translation by the classical scholar and novelist Samuel Butler. Butler is considered one of the finest English writers of the late Victorian era, and his translation one of the most accessible and satisfying.
