H.P. LOVECRAFT: MARGINALIA—AN EXCEPTIONAL COPY!

By: LOVECRAFT, H.P.

Price: $900.00

Publisher: Sauk City, Arkham House, 1944

Edition: [First edition]. 2035 copies.


MARGINALIA is the earliest of the miscellanea volumes published to fill the "demands of our readers" for more HPL and more information about HPL. It's certainly a worthy addition to the canon including his Houdini rewrite IMPRISIONED WITH THE PHARAOHS, his revisions MEDUSA'S COIL, WINGED DEATH and THE MAN OF STONE by Zealia Bishop and Hazel Heald; two pieces of HPL juvenalia along with six fiction fragments; his essays on Dunsany, on the WRITING OF WEIRD FICTION and INTE...

H.P. LOVECRAFT: THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH, 1936. The author's first published book! FIRST EDITION IN UTPATEL D.J., AND ERRATA, AND GRAY PARROT TRAYCASE.

By: LOVECRAFT, H.P.

Price: $5,000.00

Publisher: Everett, PA, Visionary Publishers, 1936

Edition: [First Edition]


The only book published during Lovecraft's lifetime. A gallant effort by amateur fan and part-time printer, Bill Crawford. Unfortunately the book fell far short of HPL's expectations; the book production was poor quality and the proof-reading totally inept and embarrassing to HPL. However the book was produced and after a short while a dust-wrapper hastily printed up to try to satisfy the complaints voiced by fans over the $1.00 price-tag! The finest copy I've had of ...

By: LOVECRAFT, H.P.

Price: $340.00

Publisher: Sauk City, Arkham House, 1949

Edition: [First edition]. 2995 copies.


SOMETHING ABOUT CATS was the 2nd HPL miscellanea volume published five years after MARGINALIA and noted by Derleth that this was to've been the last - "It is unlikely that there will ever be another compilation of uncollected writings by the late Howard Phillips Lovecraft apart from the forthcoming SELECTED LETTERS . . . " Then ten years later THE SHUTTERED ROOM was published, seven years after that, THE DARK BROTHERHOOD. 'SAC" includes his famous proposition that/how... View more info

Price: $195.00

Publisher: Sauk City, Arkham House, 1966

Edition: [First edition]. 3460 copies.


DARK BROTHERHOOD is the final volume of HPL miscellanea and it's a pretty darn good one. Included is HPL's thirty-two page READING GUIDE insturcting how & why to read and what important works should most receive your attention - still worthy of your consideration after he first wrote it in 1936. Six poems, along with three stories that HPL revised for C.M. Eddy. Articles by others include NEW ENGLAND MEGALITHS, Jack Chalker's BIBLIOGRAPHY of HPL, another master and al... View more info

THE LURKER AT THE THRESHOLD

By: (LOVECRAFT, H.P.) AUGUST, DERLETH

Price: $250.00

Publisher: Sauk City, Arkham House, 1945

Edition: [First edition]. 3041 copies.


THE LURKER AT THE THRESHOLD contains three stories partially written by HPL and completed by August Derleth; apparently the title story is virtually considered all Derleth. Derleth has taken some heat through the years for his "collaborations" with HPL (it is notable that Joshi doesn't even include it in the BOOKS section but much later in his bibliography) and perhaps it would've been better had he only published the HPL fragments in one of his "miscellanea" volumes. ...

The flagship volume that launched August Derleth's, Arkham House publishing firm, the most important The flagship volume which launched Arkham House; it's most important book. At [1268 copies printed] and in this the age of the Internet, it has become, the most common scarce book on the planet because virtually everyone saved their copy and did not offer it up for sale!
