Publisher: West Kingston, RI, Donald M. Grant, 1978

Edition: First Edition


This epic work occupied Donald Sidney-Fryer from 1960 to the late 1970's. If "EOD" existed only as a bibliography, you would be more than suitably impressed�listing not only the entirety of Smith's book publications from 1912 to 1978, but the contents of each book both poetry & prose, along with his magazine appearances of both poetry & prose; an index of the "First lines" of that poetry; anthology appearances both poetry & prose, letters, essays�however it is...

Price: $25.00

Publisher: San Francisco/Columbia, PA:, Underwood-Miller,, 1978 .

Edition: First Edition Paperbound.


An excellent bibliography of the noted writer. The only shortcoming of the book is that the author continued to write and publish until well into the 90's! The book is illustrated with cover reproductions which is a great help. Only 900 paper copies produced. Still in shrinkwrap. Fine. View more info

HOW TO READ.

Price: $35.00

Publisher: London:, Desmond Harmsworth,, 1931.

Edition: First Edition.


His comments, though a wee bit arrogant and snide, hold much merit. Pound is always a bit "uppity" in his writings: "Has literature a function? . . . despite the slime of bureaucracy, and the exercrable taste of the populace? . . . It has" - Pound, pg. 17. However he was an effing bloody original - if not genius! Hard to find Pound d.j's in good shape for some reason. Vg - in fair/poor d.j. British firsts from before the War can prove difficult. Good ... View more info

JAMES BRANCH CABELL: A collection of his works: Roy A. Squires: Catalog 10.

By: CABELL, JAMES BRANCH.

Price: $40.00

Publisher: Glendale, Calif.:, Roy A. Squires,,


Roy liked having "themes" for his catalogues whenever possible, and very often would single-out an author if he got in a large collection of his/her works, and sometimes if he simply liked that author himself! Such was the case here when he featured an author he enjoyed reading and felt had been unjustly neglected, and he had just gotten this large collection of his works to be able to offer as a whole. 135 titles altogether for the grand sum of $4650...I didn't...

JAMES P. BLAYLOCK: A Bibliography of American & English Editions. [SIGNED]

By: BLAYLOCK, JAMES P.

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Royal Oak, Michigan, Mission Viejo, California:, ASAP {Airtight Seals Allied Production,}, 1992.

Edition: First Printing.


James P. Blaylock is a Clint Eastwood-built, soft-spoken fellow who writes with a sharp wit, a scholar's pen and the heart of a small boy - that he keeps in a jar on his desk - as good old Robert Bloch used to quip! A bit premature this bibliography I think, as JPB was just hitting his stride - and has shown no signs of letting up - nevertheless it does provide pertinent information regarding his output - especially the slip-cased limited editions. SIGNED by the subjec... View more info

LOVECRAFT: A BIOGRAPHY (With a signed sticker from De Camp present)

By: (LOVECRAFT, H.P.) DE CAMP, L. SPRAGUE

Price: $35.00

Publisher: Garden City, New York, Doubleday, 1975

Edition: First Edition


There is no such thing as an impartial biography and if there were it would be too boring to read! No matter how much one tries to be impartial, certain things move us or do not move us based upon our own personality and experience. De Camp's critical biography ("I saw in him certain of my own shortcomings . . . ") raised a howl amongst Lovecraft enthusiasts that kept HPL fanzines a-buzz for years afterward. S.T. Joshi has pointed out errors in the book but errors are ... View more info
