About this Item: Arkham House, 1950. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. A collection of forty-seven macabre themed poems, originally published in various journals and magazines, including Weird Tales, Wings, The Arkham Sampler, and others. One of the included poems, 'The Ballad of the Jabberwock' won the Stephen Vincent Benet award in 1946. Werewolves, Dragons, Witches, Kelpies, Fauns, Centaurs, are only a smattering of the mythical and supernatural subjects explored. Readily approachable, the majority of poems are only a page in length. Drake was a popular Weird Tales poet with more appearances in WEIRD TALES than Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, or H.P. Lovecraft. With so few copies printed, [553 copies]the book is a legendary Arkham House rarity, with only half the edition run offered to the public. The printing on the spine of this copy runs British style from bottom to top as I believe it does on all copies. D.j., spine lettering lightly aged, 1/4" spot of color rubbed off rear of d.j., lettering, thin glue remnant at top page edges a nearly unavoidable flaw with these very thin Arkham House poetry volumes, two corners just nubbed, else a tight, bright very good copy in v.g., d.j.the public.
