Price: $8,000.00

Seller ID: 447


As indicated by the color stamping on the first page of the typescript, this was the originalmanuscript submitted for publication. The typescript was accepted for publication in THE MAGIC CARPET MAGAZINE (edited by Farnsworth Wright) and announced as forthcoming in the January, 1934 issue. Unfortunately the magazine folded with that issue which must've been a very sudden demise indeed, as it got as far as the typesetter's notations — the final stage before publication! REH had just signed on with agent, Otis Adelbert Kline, no doubt in the hopes of more expedient payment and broadening his p... View more info

THE SHUTTERED ROOM is the third volume of the five HPL miscellanea and a particular favorite of mine (perhaps it's the very suggestive Richard Taylor d.j. illustration!). In August Derleth's introduction he notes how timely that to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Arkham House, a new HPL volume should be released as he himself stated - ""It seemed to us at Arkham House that our twentieth anniversary book ought to be a final collection of Lovecraftiana." But nothing set in stone Augie managed to find enough stuff for a few more. There are numerous HPL juvenalia present, remini... View more info
