THE SHUNNED HOUSE

By: LOVECRAFT, H.P.

Price: $395.00

Publisher: Sauk City, WI, Arkham House, 2008

Edition: First Thus


A confusticated biblio-history so bear with me. THE SHUNNED HOUSE was originally printed in an edition of 250 copies by the noted friend of HPL, W. Paul Cook in 1928 under his Recluse Press. The book was never bound and the sheets were turned over to Robert H. Barlow, HPL's young friend. Barlow never bound the sheets either - oh, okay he perhaps bound 12-15 copies by hand - and the 150 remaining sheets and broken sets, were turned over to Arkham House which bound 100 ...
