Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1957. First edition. Howard's first collection of poetry. Like Kipling, Howard was a first-rate doggerelist, an uncommon skill (many people do it badly). This is one of the 536 copies that has the title running up the spine of the book, rather than down, making it the first state. There were only 100 of the second state. A difficult book to find in either state. Jacket shows the usual rubbing on the back panel (perhaps a bit more than other copies) -- printing heavy black on a coated white stock and then stacking copies next to each other is a recipe for making copies appear rubbed. Slight edgewear on jacket, slight bumping on spine, gold printing on spine a bit toned -- still, quite a nice copy of a desirable book with one of the smaller print runs from this desirable press. If you can find a better copy cheaper, buy it! TW

Description:
One of seventy-five copies of the limited edition of this collection of etchings by Kinney, with an original etching of Ruth St. Denis. Book is as new, but the box in which it is contained is missing a small portion of the edge (visible in the picture). Included with the volume are three extra unsigned engravings by Kinney: his New Year cards for 1934, 1935, and 1938. All are whimsical fantasy scenes of dancer-like elves. Many engravers of the period produced such cards, and they are significantly less frequently offered than their major works. This is copy 55 of 75 copies, with uncut pages and the original glassine wrapper. The original etching is laid into a folding paper case that is bound into the book. The limited edition is scarce, and the extra cards are scarcer.

Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1963. First edition. Staplebound. Near Fine/no dustjacket (as issued). First separate edition, and first annotated edition -- one of 500 copies printed by the Villiers Press in England for Arkham House. An uncommon Lovecraft chapbook. This copy shows a slight crease in the lower right quadrant (as if bumped, though the corner itself appears sharp and unbumped). A light steaming and putting it into a book press for a few days would probably make a serious difference. Slight browning to spine and top edge, small stains on back cover. Staples beginning to rust on the inside, not on the outside. Generally a nice copy, not as pristine as one might like but still presentable. TW
