Haining does not intend to be exhaustive by any means, but rather, by means of this scrapbook, to introduce fans of Holmes, newcomers and aficionados alike, to the wide range of possibilities within the Holmesian arena. That Peter Cushing penned the introduction is a good example - Cushing portrayed Holmes in character, as well as being an expert in Holmesian lore himself. Haining reprints copies of cigarette cards with Holmesian characters, playbills, advertisements, 'Strand' drawings, diagrams of rooms, routes, and maps.

This was a fun book, tracing the legend of Dracula from its historical roots to the early 1980s. Peter Haining always does an excellent job of finding fascinating bits of trivia to throw into his books.

GOOD SET OF PICS OF DRAC MOVIES...FUN
Uaha
Good book. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Didn't know that the late Peter Cushing played by Van Helsing and Dracula.

I was ten years old when I first watched HORROR OF DRACULA, the 1958 film starring Christopher Lee. I was so terrified, I slept with a pillow covering my neck for months afterward. However, my interest in horror movies had been kindled, and I continued to watch many other horror films, many of which have come to be categorized as classic horror today. By the time I read Bram Stoker's DRACULA at 12 or so, my interest in vampire stories had been firmly cemented and over the years I have collected many books, mainly fiction, on the subject. Imagine my delight then when I came across this 1976 edition of THE DRACULA SCRAPBOOK edited by Peter Haining. I paid two dollars for it at a library book sale and it is worth much more than that for the hours of enjoyment I have had from perusing it. Here one will find much to titillate the senses: archival photographs of film stills from the various DRACULA films (starring Lee, Bela Lugosi, and more), articles, reports, newspaper cuttings, poems, illustrations, and much more, all lovingly curated by Hanning to entertain readers and fans of the genre.

Haining himself states it perfectly, "There is scholarship and humor here, objective reporting and fascinating speculation, all drawn from nearly a century of obsession with an undead man who seems to grow more alive every day." Indeed, interesting nuggets of information are peppered throughout this fascinating piece of literature. For example, M.R. James, a master of British atmospheric horror, believed that Stoker's DRACULA may have been inspired by a story that once appeared in a now defunct Victorian magazine titled CHAMBER'S REPOSITORY. Sadly, the story itself can no longer be traced, so there is no way to authenticate James' claims.

I greatly enjoyed reading about the vampire legend among other cultures, such as the Malayan (now Malaysia) notion of a vampire called a "penanggalan" or "langsuir". I grew up in Malaysia and used to hear the locals whisper tales of such creatures, blood-curdling tales that kept me awake at night. Reading about these creatures in this book attests to the extensive research undertaken by Hanning. Other cultures covered are Japanese, Romanian, and more.

I discovered many things I had previously been ignorant of, such as the existence of early vampire tales, e.g. WAKE NOT THE DEAD by Johann Ludwig Tieck,THE DREAMLAND BRIDE by Theophile Gautier, VARNEY THE VAMPYRE, a penny weekly serial, and more. The coverage of vampires in films is quite impressive, and although by no means exhaustive, the collection of film stills alone counts for something and had me riveted (all the photographs and illustrations are in B&W).

All in all, I greatly recommend this oversized hardback of THE DRACULA SCRAPBOOK for fans of vampire stories and films, especially if you are a fan of classic horror vampire films.

One of the most influential books that I read on the Count growing up was this book, a reprint of the 1976 book by author Peter Haining.

Haining is always an interesting Horror historian, spending time on history as well as little known facts and speculation to interest the die hard fan.
While containing alot of history that is familiar in many guides, Haining touches on alot of areas that few authors explored at the time(and now).

These include a chapter on the impact of Nosferatu, the several differences between the Count in the novel and and film. A rare interesting interview with Bela Lugosi, a look at the various Van Helsings of Cinema and a "what if" on the possibility of Boris Karloff portraying the famous Monster. Of course he also includes history of the historical Vlad Tepes and the creation of Stoker's novel as well.

Haining keeps this interesting by including rare photographs from various films and books, many not seen elsewhere.
This book is a must have for the Horror fan who can't read enough about the world's most
