2 CAMPBELL, J. Ramsey. THE INHABITANT OF THE LAKE.
Sauk City, Wisconsin Arkham House 1964 
August Derleth has taken a lot of heat the past two decades, especially from the HPL crowd, but as an editor/publisher, he had 20/20 vision for talent, and this innocuous little book by a precocious eighteen-year-old, Cthulhu-Eyed, posthumous-protege of H. P. Lovecraft would soon blossom into—the OTHER lad from Liverpool(!):The British Isles equivilent of our own Stephen King, assuming the mantle of the the Dean of British Horror. This is the author's first book, really a salute to H.P. Lovecraft. But he would all too soon, find himself pushing his personal horrors towards a new direction incorporating the refined terrors of modern times. An important AH book. [2009 Copies Printed]. A Fine, white-paper copy in fresh d.j., with the merest trace of age to top edge of d.j. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ18.

9 DERLETH, August. ARKHAM HOUSE: AUGUST DERLETH—SOMEONE IN THE DARK. Arkham's 2nd published book! The Richard M. Jefts, Arkham House Collection
Sauk City, Arkham House 1941 [First Edition] 
A collection of sixteen ghost stories, or near ghost stories, which Derleth considered "stories that could be read twice." The book is divided into three sections: NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD—containing nine stories; A HOUSE WITH SOMEBODY IN IT—containing five stories, and VISITORS FROM DOWN UNDER—with two stories. I'm sure this was a stopgap book, published—or perhaps "donated" —to help put some cash into Arkham House's coffers until THE OUTSIDER—which was still in print—could retrieve its printing costs! Only [1115 copies printed] this is one of the scarcer AH titles, especially in this exemplary condition! A fine + copy in a fine - d.j. a crease in the spine of d.j., with some rubbed letters at spine. Lovely tight, white-paper copy of a tender book! Arkham House was searching for its format as this book only measures 5" x 7" and is bound in thinner boards than the standard AH book which began with Clark Ashton Smith's—OUT OF SPACE & TIME, which measuredc 5-1/2 x 8. #RMJ59.

Sauk City, Wisconsin Arkham House 1950 [First Edition] 
Another of those "handful" of truly elusive issuances from Arkham House/Mycroft & Moran, although the colophon states 553 copies, aparently the authoress took half the edition back to her hometown of Evansville and distributed copies amongst her friends and acquaintances! Hence only a few hundred were offered thru Arkham House. A Fine fresh copy that bears a Hannes Bok designed bookplate of Harold C. Worden, and the tidily written number in ink, ""K126." D.j., just the merest trace of age at spine—barely noticible. A lovely example. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ15.

Seventeen stories collected primarily from WEIRD TALES magazine. And as the author himself says of them in his introduction—"I have come to think many of them among the best macabre tales I have written." All the tales composed within a month(!) in the wee hours of the morning, and under great duress, as the author's primary assignment at that time was his novel, THE SHIELD OF THE VALIANT. A very fine copy in d.j., without the usual spine discoloration. Uncommon thus. The first listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ1.

DEEP WATERS, HODGSON, William Hope.
20 HODGSON, William Hope. DEEP WATERS
Sauk Citty, WI. Arkham House 1966 [First Edition] 
This British author was practically unknown here in the States, until Derleth published the landmark volume—HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND—some of the author's longer works: DEEP WATERS presents a sampling of the author's excellent shorter works. Lovecraft lauded Hodgson's work in his SUPERNATURAL HORROR IN LITERATURE. "THE VOICE IN THE NIGHT" contained herein is a classic in the literature. This Arkham House edition adds three stories discovered after the author's death. [2556 copies printed]. A nice fresh tight fine copy in d.j. #24JS
