Documents and books written close to the introduction to vampires into the public's consciousness can be worth thousands of dollars.For example, a collector can expect to find early publications of The Vampyre, A Tale by John Polidori (one of the first tales and account of the vampire) for roughly $5000 or more!
And, of course, there is Dracula by Bram Stoker. Dracula is the most famous vampire in modern literature and has stemmed numerous depictions of vampires and is still being adapted today into pop culture. A diligent collector can find anything from first editions of Dracula novels to vintage movie posters representing many genres and portrayals of vampires in history.
