The first hardcover, "popular" edition of HPL published. Published April, 1945 a month before the end of the war with Germany, the book quickly went into a 2nd printing September of that year and eight months later this third printing. Reprints fourteen of Lovecraft's tales, and a brief introduction by August Derleth. Quite a nice copy given the poor paper and very light binding; one corner just nubbed, the paper tanned in the margins but less than most; just a few snags in the d.j. A very very good example of this cheaply made book. JOSHI I-A-22-a.3.
