Lovecraft edited this little chapbook of poetry from an amateur "oldtimer" of whom he was quite fond. Hyman Bradofsky, publisher of THE CALIFORNIAN and correspondent of HPL's told me that HPL "touched up" some—if not all of these poems." Lovecraft wrote a two-page introduction defining Dr. Kuntz's poetry, thusly—"often Alexandrine—. . . exhibiting apt and stately compound words sometimes coined with vast originality and spontaneousness." From the HYMAN BRADOFSKY collection. One of only three books edited by HPL. These early amateur publications are rare. Quite a nice copy, with Pi... View more info

The publisher/editor Ms. Cole doesn't date this issue but from its appearance I'm guessing, 1915. Lovecraft is only briefly mentioned and you have to dig to find it - in regards to an article he must've written re: "simple language" - "It rather amused me to read his (Brander Matthews) brief for the simplified spelling and shortly after Mr. Lovecraft's fervent denunciation of that famous movement (Populist) . I am wondering whether Mr. Lovecraft has read, "Other Days." I feel sure he would find Mr. Matthews defense most interesting." V.g. copy. Unfolded. String-tie still present. Nicely printe...
