About this Item

MARGINALIA is the earliest of the miscellanea volumes published to fill the "demands of our readers" for more HPL and more information about HPL. It's certainly a worthy addition to the canon including his Houdini rewrite IMPRISIONED WITH THE PHARAOHS, his revisions MEDUSA'S COIL, WINGED DEATH and THE MAN OF STONE by Zealia Bishop and Hazel Heald; two pieces of HPL juvenalia along with six fiction fragments; his essays on Dunsany, on the WRITING OF WEIRD FICTION and INTERPLANETARY FICTION and the many appreciations and salutes of HPL by Clark Ashton Smith, August Derleth, Donald Wandrei, Robert Barlow, Kenneth Sterling, Henry Kuttner and others. Also included are sixteen pages of photographs of HPL, his work, his study, and the various personalities with whom he became closely associated with - including Robert E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith.A Fine copy with nice spring in the hinge; the gilt spine- stamping is still bright which is unusual. Very light trace of dusting to tops of page edges with a few fingerprints to cloth. One of the very nicest copies I've had in my forty years of collecting/selling. In a fine d.j. JOSHI: I-A-19.

Store Description

Who am I and Why buy from me? How many times have you ordered a book on eBay only to return it because it wasn't a first edition or in the condition stated? I'm Terence McVicker. I began collecting Fantasy & Science fiction in 1970 and opened my own brick & mortar shoppe in 1976 under the name, The Book Symposium, in Anaheim, California. I closed the shoppe long ago and since have been selling under my own name and on eBay under the moniker of epagana. I mentored for fifteen years under the noted bookman Roy A. Squires, specializing in Fantasy & Science Fiction and in my more than forty years of collecting & selling I have dealt with virtually every major bookseller in the field from Gerry de la Ree to Lloyd Currey. . . and I have learned much! I have sold to and appraised collections for the John Hay Library, Brown University's H.P. Lovecraft Collection and the Bancroft Library, University of Southern California, Berkeley's Clark Ashton Smith Collection and numerous individual clients. I worked with Ray Bradbury & Gary Gianni on Ray's last book - The Nefertiti-Tut Express which I designed and published in 2012 as The RAS PRESS. I have a forty year plus, reputation in the field for integrity, expertise and professionalism that I take great pride in: In other words, everything I sell I know to be authentic and I stake my reputation upon it. And everything sold is guaranteed to be delivered to you in the condition stated or your money back. If your shipment is damaged, then I haven't done my job! It's not the fault of the post office. And I guarantee this worldwide! Let eBay sellers better that! I look forward to having you as my client! - Terence McVicker
