Seven Golden Buttons
Seven Golden Buttons was a previously unpublished novel by Bram Stoker. It was originally written on a number of index cards in 1891. These cards now make up a part of Brotherton Collection at University of Leeds Library (Leeds). After the publication of Dracula, Stoker reused large sections of this novel to write Miss Betty. In 2015, the index cards were transcribed and published along with a copy of Miss Betty by Noel Montague-Etienne Rarignac. They appeared under the title Stoker's Doppelganger: Day and Night - Two Novels: Seven Golden Buttons and Miss Betty.
After the publication of Miss Betty, Stoker wrote a play based on the novel under the title Miss Betty. A Play in Four Acts. However, the play was never performed in front of an audience.
