Seller ID 470
Another of Paul Cook's very handsomely printed issues upon slick paper with heavy paper covers. Lovecraft as you would think, is mentioned frequently within this issue: under Bureau of Critics his amateur paper - THE CONSERVATIVE - is accorded 2-2/3 columns of commentary: " In the CONSERVATIVE we have what is probably the best example of a literary journalism today . . . Poetry is not absent, and Mr. Lovecraft . . . may always be depended upon to show great discrimination in his choice of metrical contributions . . . " additional commentary upon HPL, Alfred Galpin, Winifred Virginia Jordan and others. "Mr. Lovecraft is an amateur of distinctly literary predilections . . . his stye is keen, incisive and always holds the interest of the reader, no matter what the subject under discussion. Such a combination of versatility and brillance as found in Mr. Lovecraft must be extremely valuable to the Association which commands it." HPL is mentioned in depth again in the appraisal of THE VAGRANT with the Lovecraft poem - THE POE-TS NIGHTMARE. Too much to quote. A v.g., copy. FROM THE HYMAN BRADOFSKY COLLECTION.
