Roquelaure pseudonym, THE CLAIMING OF SLEEPING BEAUTY, BEAUTYS PUNISHMENT, and BEAUTYS RELEASE; and a number of others. From the dust jacket flap. A young man pours out an almost hypnotic account of his life.
Gifted with immortality, cursed with a craving for human blood, he has lived for two hundred years as a vampire. Of the night when, a rich young heir, he departed human existence and was inducted into the endless life. Reluctant to take human life, he learns first to sustain himself on the blood of animals.But as the years pass he gradually embraces the habits, hungers, feelings of vampirism; the detachment, the hardened will, the sensual pleasure. In a dark New Orleans street he finds the exquisite lost child, Claudia, wanting not to hurt but to comfort her, struggling against the last residue of human feeling within him. And we see how Claudia in turn becomes a vampire. We see them joined against the envious, dangerous rival vampire, Lestat, embarking on a perilous search across Europe for others like themselves, desperate to discover the ways of survival, to know what they are and why. In Paris they discover the Theatre des Vampires, the beautiful, lewd and febrile mime theatre whose posters of penny-dreadful vampires at once mask and reveal the horror within. And they meet the eerily magnetic Armand, who brings them, at last, into intimacy with a whole brilliant and decadent society of vampires; an intimacy that becomes sudden terror when they are compelled to confront what they feared and flee. This unceasing flow of spellbinding storytelling, of danger and flight, loyalty and treachery, announces a literary imagination of the first order.

Clearly Anne Rice is one of the best, most famous, most important, and most collectible vampire/horror/dark fantasy authors in the world. Ex-library books must be noted as such since generally they are of little value to the collector of 1st editions. Condition is also very important to those collectors.
Books and dust jackets must be described in detail. Mistakes can be made (and corrected), of course, but if you DON'T KNOW, don't try to sell a book as a 1st edition.
The book is tight and square in its black black paper-boards binding with bright gilt lettering on the spine of the book. The book has the correct bright red endpapers. There is no writing in the book; no bookplates; no remainder marks.There is some relatively minor shelf wear at the lower edges of the boards; largely unobtrusive. The upper and lower spine of the book shows some of the usual pushing of the edges of the binding due to the relatively poor construction of the binding, but the book is still nicer than is usually encountered. There are no chips or tears or wrinkles to the dust jacket. The dust jacket has undergone some archival reinforcement which has been accomplished by a professional paper conservationist. The reinforcement consists of the use of archival tape and archival paste.
The reinforcement is mainly at the upper and lower edges of the spine panel of the dust jacket. There is some relatively minor color touch-up, mainly at the upper and lower edges of the spine panel of the dust jacket. The gorgeous dust jacket artwork shows very nicely on the front panel of the dust jacket and is very evocative in terms of the vampire novel contained in the book.
There is a wonderful contemporary photograph of Anne Rice on the entire rear panel of the dust jacket.
