An exotique tale, for a time thought written by Clark Ashton Smith, but soon after been proven , not to've been written by CAS. However it does exist with his name, and it will always remain a curious error of wishful bibliographic thinking. The introduction lays out the errant mythodology. The illustrations by R. J. Krupowicz would've suited Smith's exotique prose beautifully. The book is limited to 1250 copies and signed by the artist. I have a few remaining copies available at cover price. As new in d.j.

When I assisted in the gathering of some of the materials for this book I was at first very doubtful of the outcome, but I must applaud Jerad Walters' effort assembling the finest book that was ever done, and ever likely to be done, in presenting the majority of the artwork of Clark Ashton Smith; it is a remarkable book. Its popularity is evidenced by the fact that the book went O.P., in less than a year. Listed at the original in-print price. As new copies still in shrinkwrap. View more info

Up until SELECTED POEMS's publication in 1971, EBONY & CRYSTAL was the author's greatest poetry collection, as it contained his epic THE HASHISH-EATER. The book was inexpertly bound, lacking the endpapers, and the author was so upset that he didn't bother having his artwork design reproduced for a dust-jacket. The dust-jacket was printed up in an edition of 200 copies by Terence McVicker, to celebrate the hundreth anniversary of the poet's birth, in 1993. Issued in an edition of 500 [actually 525} signed, numbered copies. The best copy I've ever found of this book. A few corrections in View more info

As S.T. Joshi notes in his SIXTY YEARS OF ARKHAM HOUSE, SELECTED POEMS was "another landmark volume from Arkham House, whose importance to weird literature—and perhaps to American literature in general— cannot be overstated." Smith submitted the volume to Derleth in 1949 but the book sadly remained unpublished until eight years after the author's death. It was the book CAS was most proud of; what he considered his best poetry up until that time. As new copy in d.j. Unread. View more info
