Item Description: Arkham House, Sauk City, 1950. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Sauk City, Arkham House, 1950. First Edition. First Impression. Frances L. Penny's copy thence to George Locke "Ownership signature of Frances L. Perry date 11.1.1951. Holograph poems by Drake on endpapers and prelims but perry. No dust jacket. Very good, slight foxing. Many poems denoted on contents page with ticks. Perry was a member of the Society of the Inner Light, Dion Fortune's offshoot of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, in the 40s-50s. Of the six poems transcribed by Perry into the book, one "The Vision" is also printed there. The others, which I am sure were composed by Drake, are: 'Six Merry Farmers', 'Out', 'Revenant', 'The Mermaid' and, on the rear endpaper, 'Red Ghosts of Kentucky'. They were probably transcribed from magazine appearances, but it is possible that Drake may have sent or given copies to Perry." More recent research suggests that George was correct regarding the magazine appearances as the titles can be found in various places such as Weird Tales. [5779, Hyraxia Books].

Item Description: Arkham House, 1950. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Another of those "handful" of truly elusive issuances from Arkham House/Mycroft & Moran, although the colophon states 553 copies, aparently the authoress took half the edition back to her hometown of Evansville and distributed copies amongst her friends and acquaintances! Hence only a few hundred were offered thru Arkham House. A Fine fresh copy that bears a Hannes Bok designed bookplate of Harold C. Worden, and the tidily written number in ink, "K126." D.j., just the merest trace of age at spineóbarely noticible. A lovely example. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ15. Bookseller Inventory # 1117
