Robert E. Howard's SKULL-FACE was one of the greatest books Arkham House ever published; I rank it 2nd behind, THE OUTSIDER by H.P. Lovecraft, in collectibility in the Arkham House canon. And though THE GENT FROM BEAR CREEK, British 1st is rarer by far, SKULL-FACE is truly the cornerstone of any Robert E. Howard collection! This is a splendid, fine copy with few flaws and the dust-jacket is virtually as fresh as the day it was published; note no discoloration on the verso. The book still has the "new car" Arkham House smell!No fingerprints on the cloth, no yellowing to the verso of the d.j., just a few slight creases. One corner just nubbed in its initial shipment. This copy came new from an original Arkham House buyer and it is very fresh. Simply put, the best copy I've had in 30 years and priced accordingly! A fine copy in fine d.j., with a few slight creases.
