The LeBoeuf Pen Company is proud to introduce the Bram Stoker “Dracula” Limited Edition fountain pen and rollerball.
Bram Stoker, best known as the author of the novel Dracula, one of the most famous horror novels of all time, was born in Clontarf, Ireland, on November 8, 1847. As a youth, Stoker was intrigued by the stories told him by his mother about the cholera epidemic of 1832 which claimed thousands of lives. These cruel and vivid tales began to shape the young Stoker's imagination.
Stoker attended Trinity College, in Dublin, Ireland graduating with honors in 1870. He worked for ten years in the Irish Civil Service, and during this time contributed theater criticism to the Dublin Mail. His glowing reviews of Henry Irving's performances encouraged the actor to seek him out. The two became friends, and in 1879 Stoker became Irving's manager. He also performed managerial, secretarial, and even directorial duties at London, England's Lyceum Theatre.
Despite Stoker's active personal and professional life, he began writing and publishing novels, beginning with The Snake's Pass in 1890. The success of this book prompted Stoker to continue writing.
