Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1959. First edition. Staplebound Wraps. Fine/no dustjacket (as issued). Three essays on Lovecraft by Derleth, a diary of Lovecraft's visit to W. Paul Cook (by Cook) and four letters from Lovecraft to Cook. Moderately scarce pamphlet (1044 copies) from AH; as with most copies, this copy shows some crushing of the outside corners of the card-stock cover, which extends well beyond the page block. The pages are crisp and clean, the staples show no rust, and the overall condition is just as it might have been received from Arkham House (Derleth did not always pack books with an eye to exceptional condition). Any photo accompanying my descriptions are an actual photo of the book listed: no stock photographs. TW

Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1941 (actually 1966). Second edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. Second edition of this second book from Arkham House, containing Derleth's favorites of his weird fiction shorts up to this date. One of 300 copies of this version. Most of the copies of this version are in excellent condition -- many more are signed (like this one) than are copies of the first. This one is inscribed to a collector. A comparison of the jackets shows the second is much muddier than the first, in terms of reproduction -- it was probably shot from a printed copy of the first. Derleth did a remarkable job of matching the paper on the jacket, though, right down to its lamentable tendency to fade if one shines so much as a flashlight on it. A serious "Tell me again why I wanted to become an Arkham House completist?" item, with a nice Derleth inscription as some justification for going for this copy. TW

Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1941. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. True first edition of this second book from Arkham House, containing Derleth's favorites of his weird fiction shorts up to this date. One of 1115 copies of this version. Shorter than the reprint, with thinner boards and (easiest way to tell without a comparison copy) with no headband or footband on the spine. Nice copies of this version are scarcer than the 300 copy (unacknowledged) reprint from the 1960s. This is a very nice copy: spine slightly faded on the dustjacket, minimal wear, book clean, bright and tight. In jacket protector. Much more desirable than the reprint. TW

Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1949. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A potpourri of odd bits of Lovecraft essays and drafts, with some articles about him. Derleth thought at the time that this might be the last Lovecraft book from Arkham House, aside from the SELECTED LETTERS: he was not quite right about that. A nice copy of the book, in an exceptional dustjacket: clean and tight with minimal spine bumping and no fading or rubbing on the unclipped jacket. The endpapers show some burning from the cheap glue used in binding the book. A copy to grace any shelf. From the title essay: "I have no active dislike for dogs, any more than I have for monkeys, humans, tradesmen, cows, sheep or pterodactyls; but for the cat I have entertained a particular like and respect ever since the earliest days of my infancy." A man of discerning tastes indeed. TW

Description:
Canoga Park CA: Major Books, 1977. Second edition. Mass Market Paperback. Good/no dustjacket (as issued). Revised and enlarged edition of the Brandon House scarcity Known Homosexual. Not quite as rare, but still uncommon, with limited distribution upon its initial publication. One of Hansen's lesser books, very uncommon in either edition. This is not an exceptional copy -- the binding is tight, the pages are clean with some edge-toning from the low-quality paper, but the covers are badly toned and splotchy. No wear, just discoloration. Reading crease on spine. If you're looking for a sturdy but unattractive copy -- this is perfect for you. No tears, minimal wear.
