Description

    (Howard Phillips Lovecraft, subject.) David H[enry] Keller. Two Autograph Letters SIGNED (ALsS), dated 1 July 1952 and 7 July 1952, [and:] One Autograph Postcard (ANS), dated 21 July 1952. All to "Gil Margrove" [or "Margraves, the name is spelled variously by Keller]. Letters signed "David H. Keller, postcard signed "Keller." The correspondence relates to the sale of an out-of-print book by Keller and Lovecraft's handwritten astronomical notebook. Keller's correspondence and Lovecraft's notebook were part of the Philip Jack Grill collection. One wonders if Grill acquired them from Keller using a pseudonym or through a front man. Letters have old mailing folds; all in fine condition. The mailing envelopes (roughly opened) are present.
