Although L. Sprague de Camp is best remembered for his many notable fantasies including the classic—Lest Darkness Fall—some popcorn poetry such as the limmericks he wrote for Robert E. Howard's character, Conan: "So Conan at last became King And thought it a glorious thing. But rebels and rotters, And sorcerous plotters Did soon disillusionment bring." But even when serious the author injects humor; engaging poetry. An edition of 1250 copies SIGNED by author and noted artist Tim Kirk who provided humorous color & B & W illustrations. The original errant cost of the book was price-clipped from the publisher and issued thus. Still in shrinkwrap.
