The National Amateur was arguably the most professional amateur journal of its day; neatly typeset in strict tidy columns and able to accomodate the many words per page required by HPL for his critical evaluations of Amateur verse.. Lovecraft is still the Critic for Verse and devotes more than a page - this front page - and more to the subject. HPL must've been a very fast reader indeed considering the amount of verse he comments upon. 1933 was not a productive year in his own writing career as he commented himself in a letter dated, "October, 1933" - "I am at a sort of standstill in writing--disgusted at much of my older work, & uncertain as to avenues of improvement."He also moved into his last residence - 66 College Street.A nice copy that was never folded.
