This fantastic volume is an absolute must have for anyone with an interest in vampire mythology. No home (or castle) should be without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampyre Verite 30 May 2015
By kookie womblat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because of the annotation! I have read Bram Stoker's Dracula before (several times). The annotation greatly enhanced my understanding of the actual geographical/historical/cultural aspects of the book. Stoker went to considerable effort to render everything correctly (including train timetables in Romania at the time of the tale). Also, the information about vampires correctly mirrors the folk lore of Romania. Thus we see that Dracula, by Stoker, was in fact a very, very true story. There are also references to the historical Dracula -ie - a Romanian fighter of the Turks who lived in the 15th century. The authors of this annotation are well known for being pioneers in the -Search for Dracula, one of their previous books. They are both professional historians, based at Boston University. Except for the folk lore that says that vampires live for hundreds of years, unless stake is driven through the heart and the head cut off, Stoker's Dracula is a very accurate study of history and culture. You would probably not know this without the aid of such an annotated version.
