Sauk City, WI: Arkham House. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1958. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Cover Art; Limited to 2000 copies (actually 2079 copies). This book is in Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is mostly clean and bright, with a few tiny spots of rubbing to the edges / spine ends, and some beginning toning and spots of foxing to the rear panel and top edges of the flaps. Included is an introduction by Edgar W. Smith This is another in the pastiche series of Solar Pons books which mimic the Sherlock Holmes stories, even down to the number of stories per volume. This book includes the short works: Adv. Of the Lost Dutchman, The Adv. Of the Devil's Footprints, The Adv. Of the Dorrington Inheritance, The Adv. Of the - Triple Kent -, The Adv. Of the Rydberg Numbers, The Adv. Of the Grice-Paterson Curse, The Adv. Of the Stone of Scone, The Adv. Of the Remarkable Woman, The Adv. Of the Penny Magenta, The Adv. Of the Trained Cormorant, The Adv. Of the Camberwell Beauty, The Adv. Of the Little Hangman, and, The Adv. Of the Swedenborg Signatures. "In the mid-1930s, Derleth organized a Ranger's Club for young people, served as clerk and president of the local school board, served as a parole officer, organized a local men's club and a parent-teacher association. He also lectured in American regional literature at the University of Wisconsin and was a contributing editor of Outdoors Magazine. With longtime friend Donald Wandrei, Derleth in 1939 founded Arkham House. Its initial objective was to publish the works of H. P. Lovecraft, with whom Derleth had corresponded since his teenage years. At the same time, he began teaching a course in American Regional Literature at the University of Wisconsin. In 1941, he became literary editor of The Capital Times newspaper in Madison, a post he held until his resignation in 1960. His hobbies included fencing, swimming, chess, philately and comic-strips (Derleth reportedly deployed the funding from his Guggenheim Fellowship to bind his comic book collection, most recently valued in the millions of dollars, rather than to travel abroad as the award intended. ). Derleth's true avocation, however, was hiking the terrain of his native Wisconsin lands, and observing and recording nature with an expert eye." .

The Return of Solar Pons (BOOK #6)

August Derleth

USA: Pinnacle., 1975. Stated First printing. Paperback. Very Good. I look over my notes concerning the various adventures of my companion, Solar Pons, in the closing years of the 1920's, I am hard put to it to make a choice from a roster which includes the diabolical affair of the Devil Footprints, the curious puzzle of the hats of M. Henri Dulac, the French consul, and the singular affair of the Little Hangman, but I doubt that there was another in those years which began as dramatically as the strange adventureof John Paul Renfield, clerk of Counsellors Extraordinary, Ltd. The problem had its origin, as I recall, on a bright summer morning. The early sunlight still streamed into our quarters at 7B Praed Street, and Pons, having just finished putting into his files his own notes on the case of the Cloverdale Kennels, had come to the breakfast table, only a few moments ago laid by our estimable landlady, Mrs. Johnson. He carried the Times, and was just turning to the agony column, as was his custom, when there was a sound of running footsteps from the street below, followed by the flinging open of the outer door and a clatter on the stairs. "A young man in distressing haste," observed Pons, his eyes twinkling. "He has forgotten to close the outer door." ISBN 0-523-00650-0 08-07-16
