First Edition. Bound in brown boards with gilt lettering on spine. Minor discoloration to bottom of front board. Printed in an edition of 200 softcovers; this hardcover binding would have been done by the original owner ( from publisher W. Paul Ganley confirmed all copies were paperbacks.) Most, though not all, of this material was simultaneously issued as Vol. VI & VII of the "Lovecraft Collectors Library." Missing from that publication are Lin Carter's essay "HPL: The History"; the introduction by Wetzel "The Research of a Biblio" (which was 'extremely shortened and edited.) Ironically, a good part of the value of this book lies in its place in the formation of a HPL bibliography: thus, the essay on how Wetzel went about researching the bibliography is of utmost interest. A rare item all around, in excellent condition. Bookseller Inventory #
