[August Derleth, Editor]. The Arkham Sampler Volume I, Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and Volume II, Numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4. Sauk City: Arkham House Publishers, 1948-1949.

    The first two complete years of the Arkham Sampler. Octavo. Each issue contains 100 pages.

    Original wrappers in various colors. All issues in very good condition with some rusting of the staples as is typical. Light foxing to the top edge of a few issues.

    All eight issues of this short-lived experiment by Derleth are here. Contains a wealth of stories by a host of authors and information not generally available. A wonderful opportunity for a serious Arkham House collector to own a complete run of these elusive issues. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
