1 Kostova, Elizabeth Historian, The
New York Little Brown Company 2005 First Edition Cloth As New As New Signed by Author
This is a brand new book and it has not been read. It is in Very Fine condition and it is Signed and Dated by the author in the month of publication. This novel was a New York Times bestseller and it has rightfully taken its place with the great gothic horror novels. This is a different kind of Vampire story and I promise that you have never read anything quite like it. Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of old yellow letters. The letters are all addressed to "My Dear and Unfortunate Successor" and they plunge her into a world that she never dreamed existed. The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known, and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and destroy it. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the barbarous medieval ruler whose reign formed the basis of the Dracula legend. In the course of reading the book we are well informed of eastern European history and the trail of Dracula is followed in a complex and subtle manner. The book is a wonderful change from the standard horror novel and it certainly qualifies as 'Literature". A great read and a beautiful book. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

This is a brand new book and it has not been read. It is in Fine condition and there is no creasing to the spine. The ARC is always more rare than the first edition book and it is in the format of a Trade Paperback. In the case of this book the Arc also has flaps at the front and rear like a harcover dustjacket would have.

3 Kostova, Elizabeth Swan Thieves, The
New York Little Brown Company 2010 First Edition Cloth As New As New Signed by Author
From the author of 'The Historian' the most creative vampire story that I have ever read. This is a First edition and First printing of this wonderful novel. The book is signed on the title page. This offering is in Fine condition with all corners square and no bumps or dings. The dustjacket is also Fine and it is not price clipped. A beautiful book. This is a book about obsession and Art.. Andrew Marlow, a psychiatrist, has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when the renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes Marlow's patient. When Oliver refuses to talk or cooperate, Marlow finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this silent genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism. Moving from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love and the losses of history, and with the power of art to preserve human hope.
