It didn't quite turn out this way, but in his "Note For the Aficionado," which introduces this volume, Derleth stated—"These are quite possibly the last Solar Pons pastiches I shall write." Reminiscent of his intro to "Thirty Years of Arkham House," "With 1970, Arkham House enters upon its fourth (and very probably last decade). . ." which also proved premature! One of the handful or so of truly elusive Arkham House/Mycroft & Moran issuances ;"THREE PROBLEMS"—although stated in the colophon page an edition of "Two thousand copies," there were in truth only 996 copies printed. This is made more desireable with a "Cordially, August Derleth" signature. A fine fresh copy with a bookplate of the noted collector, Harold C. Worden. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ14.
