THE SNAKE'S PASS. Bram Stoker. THE SNAKE'S PASS.
London: Sampson Low, Marston, et al, 1891. First edition of STOKER'S FIRST NOVEL. An early copy, INSCRIBED JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION to his friend "J. L. Toole / from his affectionate friend / Bram Stoker / 20.11.90." (The copyright date is 1891 but the actual date of publication was November 18, 1890.) English comic actor John Lawrence Toole was a friend of Stoker's and of Henry Irving's. It may seem unlikely now but during his lifetime Stoker was better known as Irving's personal assistant and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. A testament to the friendship of the men can be found in the dedication to the first volume of Stoker's 1906 biography of Irving, PERSONAL REMINISCENCES OF HENRY IRVING, which reads "To the Memory of John Lawrence Toole Loving Comrade and True Friend of Henry Irving." SNAKE'S PASS is the only novel written by Stoker to be set in his native Ireland and is considered a clear precusor to his later works of horror, including DRACULA. The story traces the troubled romance of traveler Arthur Severn and local peasant girl, Norah Joyce, against the backdrop of the re-telling of the legend of Saint Patrick's defeat of the King of the Snakes in Ireland. Endpapers mended at hinges and cloth touched up at spine ends and corners by an expert in book repair. Spine faded but altogether a very good copy which is free from foxing. Housed in a red-cloth clamshell box with gilt-lettered leather spine label. INSCRIBED TO A FRIEND JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION.
