Appendix I: Hutchinsons Colonial Edition of Dracula, by Robert Eighteen-Bisang.
Appendix II: The 1901 Paperback Edition of Dracula: Introductory Material from the 1994 Reprint, by Raymond T. McNally.
This work builds on two previous bibliographical explorations of Dracula:
Spehner, Norbert. Dracula: Opus 300. Montreal: Ashem Fictions, 1996. 68 pp. pb.
Eighteen-Bisang, Robert, and J. Gordon Melton. Dracula: A Century of Editions, Adaptations and Translations. Part One: English Language Editions. Santa Barbara, CA: Transylvanian Society of Dracula, 1998. 41 pp. pb. Staples.
However, this work takes a distinctly different approach. Editions have been grouped below so as to show the distinctive publishing history through which Dracula has passed. There are at least four distinct English texts of Dracula. The original text was issued almost simultaneously in 1897 by Archibald Constable & Co. (still considered the first edition by most) and by Hutchinson in what is termed a "Colonial" edition. This text is referred to below as the Constable text. In 1912, William Rider & Son obtained the British rights to Dracula. Rider reset the text and corrected some of the errors (typos) that existed in the Constable edition. Subsequently in England and through the former British colonies, the Rider text became the dominant text for new editions and reprints. At a later date, an associated Rider imprint, Jarrolds, published three editions (1966 to 1972). The Rider text would also be passed to their subsidiary, Arrow Books, at the beginning of the mass market paperback era. Editions in this tradition are listed below in chapter A. The British (Constable-Rider) Tradition.
There a was also a third British text, an abridged version of the Constable text issued once in 1901, an extremely important text, as Stoker himself did the abridgment. This text has been reprinted only once, in 1994 by Transylvania Press.
The same year that the Constable edition appeared, an American edition was issued by Doubleday (then Doubleday and McClure). This edition had several textual changes and the paragraphs were somewhat rearranged. In general, the Rider (British) may be distinguished from the Doubleday (American) text from the very first line of any given printing. The Rider text reads:
3 May. Bistritz. - Left Munich at 8.35 p.m. on 1st May. . .
The Doubleday text reads:
3 May. Bistritz. - Left Munich at 8:35 P.M., on 1st May. . .
The difference in citing time is, of course, of little significance in itself, however, it heralds a number of later variations in, for example, the merging and separation of paragraphs, and the single important and substantive alteration in the text. That alteration occurs in chapter four near the end of Harkers diary entry for June 29. He is describing a conversation he overheard between the Count and the three women who also resided in the castle. In the English edition, Dracula says, "Wait. Have patience. Tomorrow night, tomorrow night, is yours!" while the American edition reads, "Wait! Have patience! Tonight is mine. Tomorrow night is yours!" The origin and meaning of this change, the American edition implying that Dracula will feed off of Harker, the only hint of Dracula feeding on a male, has become an issue in understanding the text.
Through the next sixty years, Doubleday continued to reissued copies of its American text. It also licensed editions to be printed by Wessels, Caldwell, Grosset & Dunlap, and finally the Modern Library. It issued a paperback text for the Armed Services during World War II and licensed the first mass market paperback edition as released by Pocket Books in 1947. The publications of the Doubleday text are cited below in chapter B. The American (Doubleday-Grosset & Dunlap) Tradition.
The arrival of Dracula into the public domain in 1962 (fifty years after the death of author Bram Stoker) prompted numerous reprintings of the three major texts by a variety of publishing houses. Most of these would come out as mass market paperbacks, but there would also be a number of omnibus editions that packaged Dracula with other horror classics and several annotated editions. The post-1965 editions are listed below in three chapters: D. Mass Market Paperback Editions; E. Omnibus Editions; and F. Annotated Editions.
Finally, brief passages from the Dracula text have been reprinted in a variety of very different collections of short fiction. These are listed below in chapter G. Excerpts Printed in Short Fiction Anthologies.
Each edition of Dracula in the English language is cited in the chapters below. Along with each edition, significant reprintings of that edition (especially those with variant covers and art work) are also noted. New editions are distinguished by a change of imprint (i.e. publisher), type face, and paging, and/or the addition of introductory essays and annotations. Reprintings are usually, but by no means always, listed on the back of the title page. Significant reprintings occur for paperback editions where cover art varies. In recent decades the name and artist of cover illustrations are often given. Also, hardback editions are frequently reprinted in a trade paperback variant.
With rare exceptions, reprints of Dracula have been issued under its standard name, but occasionally there have been variations. These most often occur when Dracula is included in an omnibus collection. Unless a different title is listed, one may assume that the title of any particular edition is simply Dracula.
For each edition, the standard bibliographical information is given. In addition, whether the particular printing is a hardback (hb.), trade paperback (tp.) or mass market paperback (pb.) is noted. Editions printed on 8&1/2" x 11" or larger size paper are cited as being of "large format."
If the edition contains additional information in the form of introductory essays, annotations, critical notes, bibliographies, or a biographical sketch of Bram Stoker, such material is listed and, where known, authors and editors cited.
Editions are frequently distinguished by their art work. A number of illustrated editions have appeared and are identified by the name of the artist. Of great importance since 1965, paperback printings have been distinguished by the variations in cover art. Where the name of a piece of cover art and the artist are known, they have been cited. Where unknown, the artwork has been briefly described. For example, the early paperback edition from Arrow was frequently reprinted and periodically the cover changed. For the paperback edition, simple reprintings are not cited except when a significant change in the cover has been noted.

Included in this section are all of the hardback and trade paperback editions of Dracula issued by the Doubleday Company (under its various corporate expressions and imprints), and those editions published with licenses from Doubleday issued prior to Dracula's going into the public domain. [There is some question as to the status of the copyright and publishing rights enjoyed by Dracula in the United States as it was originally published in England and never registered with either the U.S. copyright office or Library of Congress. However, prior to 1962, American publishers operated as if Doubleday owned the copyright.]
While a large widely known publisher today, Doubleday had just been founded in 1897, the same year that Dracula was published in England. It was the brainchild of Frank Nelson Doubleday who with a partner, Samuel McClure, created the Doubleday & McClure Company in 1897. One year after the first American edition appeared in 1899, Walter H. Page replaced McClure as Doubleday's partner and the company became Doubleday, Page & Company. Then in 1927, Doubleday merged with the George H. Doran Company, resulting in the appearance of Doubleday, Doran, at the time the largest publishing concern in the English-speaking world. The business became known as Doubleday & Company in 1946.
Doubleday was sold to Bertelsmann, AG, a Germany-based worldwide communications company in 1986, and two years later was incorporated into the Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, which become a division of Random House Inc. in 1998. Doubleday continued it publication of Dracula into the twentieth-first century through the Modern Library and its several paperback affiliates, most notably Bantam Books.
Grosset & Dunlap, founded in 1898, developed a specialty in publishing books with movie tie-ins, hence an edition related to the Lugosi movie was a natural for it. In 1982, Grosset & Dunlap was purchased by G. P. Putnam's Sons, which in 1996 merged with the American Penguin publishing concern to become the Penguin Putnam Group.

Modern Library was the last company to obtain publishing rights of the Doubleday text of Dracula prior to its going into the free domain. It continues to keep the Doubleday text in print in an inexpensive popular edition. The Modern Library imprint was established in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright. In 1925 Horace Liveright, sold the imprint to Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. Two years later they founded Random House, and the Modern Library reprints of classic works of literature was henceforth an important part of Random House's annual sales.

In 1962, Dracula entered the pubic domain. Three years later, the first wave of new editions and reprintings began to appear, especially as the paperback market blossomed. Different publishers used either the Rider or Doubleday text as they saw fit to produce new editions of Dracula for the library market (with reinforced binding that would withstand heavy use), large print editions for the visually impaired, enhanced and specialty printings for collectors, and cheap editions for mass public consumption. Listed below are the hardback and trade paperback editions. The mass market paperback editions are listed separately in chapter D. immediately following.
Since 1965, Penguin, Oxford, and Barnes & Noble have become major publishers of Dracula.

Prior to Dracula's going into the public domain, mass market paperback edition appeared from Arrow Books (the paperback subsidiary of Rider & Co.) and Pocket Books (continuing the Doubleday edition). After Dracula entered the public domain, several of the larger paperback publishers issued new editions and many of the smaller companies have followed suit. The 1979 Universal remake of Dracula starring Frank Langella, the Francis Ford Coppala remake in 1992, and the 1997 centennial of the first publication of Dracula each prompted multiple new popular editions of the book.
