"Margery of Quether." In: THE CORNHILL MAGAZINE. London: Smith, Elder, & Co., January - June 1884 (New Series, volume 2, numbers 7-12). Octavo, six issues, bound in three-quarter leather and cloth. First publication of this story which appeared as a two-part serial in the issues for April and May 1884 with illustrations by Harry Furniss. This tale of an elderly female vampire who battens on a young woman was among the best known and most widely read vampire story of the 1880s. Baring-Gould, a scholar of antiquities, was well acquainted with the vampire motif and he makes good use of it here, well before DRACULA (1897). See Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 51. Leather worn at edges, cloth spotted, very occasional spotting to text, a good copy. (#147694).
