A "Coming-of-age" story of a tiny young woman's first year on her own after the death of her protective parents. ". . . my work has taught me . . . not to fret . . . as once I did, of being small and insignificant in body; to fear a great deal more remaining pygmy-minded and pygmy-spirited." Not a fantasy but certainly fancifully told. The book was considered a masterpiece by contemporaries with its publication and much thought of to this day, yet remains under the radar of many, no doubt due to the inability to quite, categorize it. A near-fine, fresh copy in better than very good d.j. ... View more info

Sometime after his heroics in the Arab Revolt and perhaps a nervous breakdown, Lawrence enlisted in the Royal Air Force under the alias of John Hume Ross. Unmasked and booted out, Lawrence enlisted in the Tank Corps only to a short time later be reenlisted in the R.A.F., again and during that time wrote of those experiences for this book published twenty years after his death. A peculiar book in that "the coarse words automatic in barrack-room speech have been eliminated, (but put in the limited edition) " so there are these very unsightly blank spots " " in the text. A fine unread... View more info

BOGEY BEASTS is a rare volume indeed, often reproduced but virtually never seen in its original state—I have seen one other copy and that was at the SIME MUSEUM in GUILDFORD. This mythical carnival-of-the-animals is often lauded as some of the artist's finest and most whimsical creations, comprised of fifteen ipen & ink drawings, llustrating the fifteen p"Jabberwocky-like" poems by Sime. A children's book really, with the poetry put to art and the piano music of Joseph Holbrooke. Not, it is not easy playing! Being a children's book, copies in decent shape are beyond rare.

Fourteen stories harvested from WEIRD TALES magazine, with a 5-1/2 page introduction by Robert H. Barlow. Whitehead lead a colorful existence but did not begin serious fictioneering until he was stationed in the Virgin Islands for nine years as an Episcopal archdeacon. Barlow notes that Whitehead " . . . was a craftsman in his life and in his writing. . . his stories are the product of a cultivated and reflective mind and of an organized and dexterous pen." HPL was very fond of him. One of the more elusive AH titles. A few fingerprints to blue-black cloth; one corner just nubbed, light du... View more info
