IN MEMORIAM: CLARK ASHTON SMITH, was the first study/literary salute from other authors who admired or were influenced by the fictions of the noted WEIRD TALES writer, and intimate friends of the author. Participating in these acknowledgements were Ray Bradbury with his INTRODUCTION — "Looking back over the years . . . I remember two stories. Both were by Clark Ashton Smith . . . THE CITY OF THE SINGING FLAME and MASTER OF THE ASTEROID. These stories . . . more than any others . . . had everything to do with my decision . . . to become a writer:" a poem — CLARK ASHTON SMITH — by Theodore Sturgeon; the first appearance of Donald Sidney-Fryer's notable biography of CAS — THE SORCERER DEPARTS; AUTOBIOGRAPHY — by CAS himself; AS I REMEMBER KLARKASH-TON — by his friend in later years, George Haas; THE PROSE TALES OF CLARK ASHTON SMITH — by L. Sprague deCamp; CLARK ASHTON SMITH: AN APPRECIATION — by Fritz Leiber, Jr., "Smith's tales remind me of Innsmouth Jewelry, they're liking finding in a thieves market, strange ornaments, the metal elaborately inlaid and fired, studded with unknown, semi precious stones, all of them suggesting an unknown culture, most rigidley taboo-bound, a culture standing by itself, a timeless culture, the stone graved culture of a hot dry land;" and also includes the tal — THE WEIRD OF AVOOSL WUTHOQQUAN, and the previously unpublished play — THE DEAD WILL CUCKOLD YOU. Published within two years of the author's death and reading it now more than fifty years after, CAS: IN MEMORIAM remains one of the finest documents yet done on this neglected author. Of the total edition of 387 copies published of only 10 were HARDBOUND, in black Arkham House styled binding; only 4 COPIES were released for Sale, the other 6 went to the publisher, the author's widow and Roy A.

CLARK ASHTON SMITH: MAROONED IN ANDROMEDA one of 12 Holograph Manuscript Leaves - two pages — with WONDER STORIES acceptance letter!, SMITH, Clark Ashton
8 SMITH, Clark Ashton CLARK ASHTON SMITH: MAROONED IN ANDROMEDA one of 12 Holograph Manuscript Leaves - two pages — with WONDER STORIES acceptance letter!
October, 1930 
Amongst CAS' papers, Roy A. Squires (his literary executor) discovered twelve holograph leaves of his story, MAROONED IN ANDROMEDA; Squires sold each leaf individually since pages of the manuscript were lost; the last leaf — or should I say the first leaf — the title-page — he kept for himself. So I offer herein, the holograph title-page and the 2nd page on the verso of the story published in WONDER STORIES, October, 1930 — MAROONED IN ANDROMEDA. Accompanying this manuscript page is the acceptance letter from David Lasser, Managine Editor, and the letter is typed on WONDER STORIES stationary. Having a Clark Ashton Smith holograph manuscript is quite rare as he destroyed his manuscript copies once published.

CLARK ASHTON SMITH: OUT OF SPACE AND TIME: Inscribed presentation copy to childhood friend, the year of publication!, SMITH, Clark Ashton
10 SMITH, Clark Ashton CLARK ASHTON SMITH: OUT OF SPACE AND TIME: Inscribed presentation copy to childhood friend, the year of publication!
Sauk City Arkham House 1942 [First edition] 
The third Arkham House book published and the author's 1st by this esteemed private publisher. Because of the paper restrictions during WW2 book editions were extremely limited and at 1054 copies published it is one of the smallest editions of prose published by AH and elusive in collectible condition. This copy belonged to the author himself as it was presented and inscribed to his school chum, "For Donald Shane, with many memories of our old school - days. Clark Ashton Smith, Auburn, Cal. "Dec. 19, 1942," the year of publication, making it one of the earliest copies signed. This book went out of print quite quickly and copies got away from CAS in a hurry so unless you visited him later, you never got your copy signed! Additionally is a holograph letter from the presentee, Donald Shane describing his knowing CAS and how the book came to him. Presentation copies dated the year of publication are rare. A few small edge chips to the d.j., a few ghost tape stains from the verso of the d.j., with the usual fading to the spine lettering; some rubbing to cloth, but a very good copy to very good+ copy. This is a difficult book to find in this collectible condition!

CLARK ASHTON SMITH: THE DOUBLE SHADOW —SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY, DATED MONTH & YEAR OF PUBLICATION!, SMITH, CLARK ASHTON
11 SMITH, CLARK ASHTON CLARK ASHTON SMITH: THE DOUBLE SHADOW —SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY, DATED MONTH & YEAR OF PUBLICATION!
Auburn, California Auburn Journal Print 1933 [First edition] 
Clark Ashton Smith's first book of prose wasn't published by Arkham House but by himself. Smith managed to get enough money in tandem with contributing to the Auburn Journal, to offset the one thousand copies he had printed of the book. He chose what he considered at that time, his best tales and offered them to the public from his cabin in Auburn for the sum of twenty-five cents postpaid. The tales include "The Voyage of King Euvoran," the title story, "The Maze of the Enchanter," "A Night in Malneant," "The Devotee of Evil," and the poetic, "The Willow Landscape." It is the author's most often found signed book of his tales as he had copies virtually the entirety of his life; however, presentation copies are quite uncommon as you either had to know Smith personally or travel to his cabin. This is an especially desirable copy as it was presented & inscribed to his personal friend, LESTER ANDERSON and is one of the earliest known signed copies, dated the month and year of publication. ANDERSON is frequently noted in the Arkham House publication — SELECTED LETTERS OF CLARK ASHTON SMITH. In a handsome 1/4 leather clamshell case designed by Gray Parrot, that you can display on your shelf rather than stuffed away in a filing cabinet! Nice copy.

14 SMITH, Clark Ashton. A RENDEZVOUS IN AVEROIGNE.
Sauk City Arkham House 1988 First Edition 
Thirty stories selected by James Turner of Arkham House with advice sought from Smith publisher and friend, Roy A. Squires along with other afficianados who were asked to include a list of their favorite CAS stories. The tales are wonderfully and weirdly illustrated by by Jeffrey K. Potter - it's just a shame the format wasn't larger, the illustrations to me seem to want to burst their boundaries; slick paper would've been nice too! But regardless they are still splendid and complement well with Smith's work. A very popular title with weird tale enthusiasts as the very healthy print-run of 5025 copies sold out quickly and in 2003 the book was reprinted with different cover art. Fine unread copy in d.j.

15 SMITH, CLARK ASHTON. AS IT IS WRITTEN.
West Kingston, Rhode Island: Donald M. Grant, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover. As new. As new. Jacket Signed
ILauded as a lost tale by Clark Ashton Smith, published under a pseudonym, it was discovered to the chagrin of all concerned that it was indeed composed by De Lysle Feree Cass an old THRILL BOOK writer! Nevertheless it does now exist as an interesting anomaly. It is rather luxuriantly written and the illustrations by R.J. Krupowicz are equally exotique. Limited to 1250 copies and SIGNED by the illustrator.

18 SMITH, CLARK ASHTON. THE DWELLER IN THE GULF.
Necronomicon Press, 1987. First Thus. Staplebound into stiff paper covers. As new. 
One of a series of booklets that Necronomicon Press did, presenting some of the fictions of Clark Ashton Smith as written without any editorial alterations. Pulp magazines existed on the smallest budgets and editors were constantly snipping and in some cases chopping away at authors' manuscripts to save a few bucks in the word-payment. Smith's work was often severely truncated, diminishing the exotique somnambulism of his prose.

A beautiful sentiment in this presentation copy from Clark Ashton Smith to Donald A. Wandrei author & co/founder of Arkham House, dated October 25, 1925.  The inscription in French, CAS quotes from — Beaudelaire's CORRESPONDENCES from LES FLEURS DU MAL; the English would read –"There are perfumes as cool as the flesh of children, Sweet as oboes, green as meadows — And others are corrupt, and rich, triumphant. With power to expand into infinity . . "  From the personal estate of Donald A. Wandrei with a small bookplate noting the provenance. The finest copy of this title I have ever seen! Signed & numbered by the author with a few holograph corrections in his hand.  Presented in a lovely tray-case designed & fashioned by master bookbinder, Gray Parrot.
