An early Roy Squires catalog featuring "exceptionally fine copies of books by H.P. Lovecraft, with copies of books by Heinlein, Campbell, Bradbury, Howard, Leiber, Merritt and Clark Ashton Smith."The Lovecraft books include a complete run of Arkham House titles, plus ephemerae such as the letters and postcards which accompanied, "THE OUTSIDER" and "BEYOND THE WALL OF SLEEP."Additional items of Lovecraft interest are his own copy of Clark Ashton Smith's, "ODES & SONNETS," 15 issues of "THE CALIFORNIAN," both issues of Robert Barlow's, "LEAVES,", a lot of "ACOLYTES," "THE RECLUSE," and one issue of "THE RAINBOW."Plus manuscripts by Clark Ashton Smith...and not to be missed or dismissed, Roy's own lecture, "On the condition of books and descriptions thereof."I still marvel at the Roy Squires catalogs and it's more than forty years later! They are written with such erudition, humor and good taste. Miss him dearly!From the Roy A. Squires archive!
