About this Item

----------Please see: Joshi I-B-iii-71; III-G-i-5 and Currey, p. 330 ----- Lovecraft, Howard Phillips, ( H. P. ) A SONNET ( The Lovecrafter), Publisher. No place: Wilson Shepherd and Donald A Wollheim,( Printed with the deep gratitude and best wishes of Wilson Shepherd and Donald A. Wollheim), August 20, 1936. 1st and only edition, issued with Fourty-Sixth mis-spelled, 126 x 203 mm, NEAR FINE, browning to paper (although I suspect that this was issued on a brown coloured paper), broadside printed on wood pulp stock which is prone to browning, There were 16 copies printed, 1 on rag paper, the rest on paper. The rag copy and 1 of the paper copies were given to HPL and are now in the Lovecraft Collection at the John Hay Library. The remaining 14 copies were sent to friends and early science fiction enthusiasts. This sonnet is number XXX (30) in the Fungi from Yuggoth poetry cycle. This is the only issue of The Lovecrafter and was prepared for Lovecraft's forty-sixth birthday (August 20th). The broadside is from 1936. The date on the broadside is in honour of HPL's birthday, not the actual day and month of publication. Of the 14 remaining copies, they are RARE!!! and rarely come on the market, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo. Bookseller Inventory # 145000
