The first publication in hardcovers of H.P. Lovecraft's poem "The Canal," a sonnet from his Fungi From Yuggoth poetry cycle. Published in an edition of 250 copies, this being one of the 75 copies in hardcover, as stated in the colophon. A very early hardbound appearance of H.P. Lovecraft poetry, I believe only preceded by his salutes to Jonathan Hoag in, THE POETICAL WORKS OF JONATHAN E. HOAG which appeared in 1923 . Predates his SHADOW OUT OF INNSMOUTH, of 1936. A very early hardcover book appearance, regardless, and very scarce. A brief HPL bio., is also noted. A tidy little handbound book, issued w/o d.j. Very lightly soiled covers. A very good copy.
