Corpus Draculianum

According to Amazon, the last of the three volumes of Corpus Draculianum will be published in December, while the first two volumes will follow in 2014 and 2015. The Corpus compiles all sources to the current knowledge about Vlad Tepes, written in 16 different languages and supplemented by translations and commentaries, and is intended to not only make these sources available to both scholar and layman, but also to defictionalize the Wallachian Woiwode. For more information (in German) on the books, see this web site. The Corpus is prepared by Thomas M. Bohn, Adrian Gheorghe and Albert Weber. The books are published by Harassowitz Verlag in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Your web site is certainly one of my favourites. Your book recommendations have been very useful. Der vampir, eine europäische mythos is a bit too hard for my German. Corpus Draculanium is on the night table and there are many more other books I have brought during years after your recommendations. Those books have been a great pleasure and something that van Helsing would certainly envy. Baron Vordenburg's library is something that I envy :)
