Book Description Arkham House, Sauk City, Wisconsin, 1959. Handsomely bound in finely woven Novelex black cloth and stamped brightly in gilt on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout, except for a name printed in ink at the bottom of the front endpaper. Light bumping to the bottom corners. In an attractive dust jacket with the price of $5.00 at the top of the inside front flap. Striking Richard Taylor art on the front panel. Light edge-rubbing and tiny chips at the corners and at the top and bottom of the spine ends. Overall, an attractive copy. "Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890– 1937)—known as H.P. Lovecraft—was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent most of his life. His father was confined to a mental institution when Lovecraft was three years old. His grandfather, a wealthy businessman, enjoyed storytelling and was an early influence. Intellectually precocious but sensitive, Lovecraft began composing rudimentary horror tales by the age of eight, but suffered from overwhelming feelings of anxiety. He encountered problems with classmates in school, and was kept at home by his highly strung and overbearing mother for illnesses that may have been psychosomatic. In high school, Lovecraft was able to better connect with his peers and form friendships. He also involved neighborhood children in elaborate make-believe projects, only regretfully ceasing the activity at seventeen years old. Despite leaving school in 1908 without graduating—he found mathematics particularly difficult—Lovecraft had developed a formidable knowledge of his favored subjects, such as history, linguistics, chemistry, and astronomy. Lovecraft returned to Providence from New York in 1926, and over the next nine months he produced some of his most celebrated tales including "The Call of Cthulhu", canonical to the Cthulhu Mythos. Never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor, Lovecraft saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time he died at the age of 46." (Wikipedia) First Edition with only 2,500 copies printed. Bookseller Inventory # 385
