Item Description: A. Roman & Company; John H. Carmany & Company [et al.], San Francisco, 1931. Hardcover. Magazine. 93 bound volumes and 40 single issues in wrappers. Octavos and folios. A long run of *Overland Monthly*, California's most important literary magazine of the 19th and early 20th Century. The set includes a near complete run of the original series from July 1868 until December 1875 (lacking only the January 1870 issue, else complete); and a long, near complete run of the second series from 1883 (when it resumed publication) through 1931. In 1923 it merged with Out West to become *Overland Monthly and the Out West Magazine*, and changed its format from octavo to folio.Founded and first edited by Bret Harte, *Overland Monthly* established serious literature and progressive social criticism in the American Far West. It quickly won national and international acclaim as a leading literary force in American letters. Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, and Harte contributed sardonic stories and verse, and all manner of informal, highly personal commentary which propelled Harte and the magazine to literary celebrity. The magazine gave rise to a new generation of writers, loosely known as the West Coast Romantics, that included Bierce and Harte, John Muir, Willa Cather, Joaquin Miller, Jack London, George Sterling, and fantasy/science fiction writer Clark Ashton Smith, all of whom contributed to the magazine. Among the many important works featured in this long run is Harte's "The Luck of Roaring Camp," "Dickens in Camp," and "Plain Language from Truthful James," and Bierce's "The Haunted Valley" and "Grizzly Papers," (in five installments). Mark Twain contributed his famous travel log in four installments: "By Rail Through France," and "A Californian Abroad: A Few Parisian Sights; Three Italian Cities; A Mediaeval Romance." Willa Cather's short story "On the Divide" appeared in 1896.Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth. The original series lacks one monthly issue (January 1870), otherwise it is complete in 14 bound volumes (volumes 1-3, and 5-15), with four unbound issues in wraps (February-May, 1870). Volume 3 from 1869 has the original wrappers and supplements bound in. Volumes 1-6 of the second series is incomplete, consisting of 11 unbound single issues in wraps from 1883-1885: (April 1883; January, April, July, August, September, October, and November 1884; January, March, May 1885), then follows a consecutive run of mostly bound volumes 7-89 from 1886-1931 (with 29 single issues from 1921-22 in wrappers). The bound volumes from 1901-1931 have the original wrappers bound in.An ex-library set with bookplates or ink stamps on the front pastedowns. Only two volumes in half calf (from 1895 and 1897) are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes and a few single issues in wraps from the 20th Century have some intermittent torn leaves, the volume containing the "San Francisco Fire Number" (May 1906) is split at the gutter with detached leaves, else overall an about very good set. A scarce, large assemblage of many first appearances of important American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections is available. Bookseller Inventory # 378785

Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Undated. A one-page prose poem, typed, and signed "Clark Ashton Smith/Auburn, California." This version of the prose poem differs in a number of particulars from the published version, which was included in The Abominations of Yondo (Arkham House, 1960) and Poems in Prose (Arkham House, 1965). Previously folded in thirds but now in a custom binder, bearing the bookplate of horror writer Stanley Wiater, from whose library this came. Fine, with a letter laid in to Wiater from Roy Squires, the noted science fiction collector and dealer, from whom Wiater purchased it. Squires' lengthy letter comments extensively on the appallingly high prices "being asked -- and paid -- for the more desirable Arkham House books," in 1972, and then goes on to justify the high price Wiater had just paid for the Clark Ashton Smith manuscript, and says that he knows of only four prose poem manuscripts by Clark Ashton Smith in existence -- this one; one that he himself still had; and two that Smith's widow had at that time. A rare typescript by one of the most important American horror writers of the 20th century, with a long, illuminating letter from one of the great collectors and dealers in the field, and from the library of a horror writer who has been a three-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, given by the Horror Writers of America.

Item Description: This draft appears to have about 60 lines of rhymed tetrameter. Whether the 78-line version cited by Sidney-Fryer is an earlier or later version than this is unknown. An erotic poem of sufficient explicitness as to have undoubtedly prevented its publication during Smith's lifetime. In Smith's later hand, forward-slanting with swash lettering, a bit difficult to make out in places. Smith was probably the foremost writer of weird poetry in the early twentieth-century. His romanticism seems now like a rearguard action fought against the invasion of modernism: an echo of the more vital romantic voices of the preceding century, but an echo which has its own charm and power if one will only stop to listen to it. Sidney-Fryer, Donald. Emperor of Dreams: a Clark Ashton Smith Bibliography, p. 94 (unpublished). Sheets frayed at top and bottom with some slight loss of text, mostly at top of page two, but the remaining text in this area is all crossed-out, so the one or two lost words may have been rejected by Smith anyway.
