    [H.P. Lovecraft] Marvel Tales, Vol. 1, No. 1, With Edits in Lovecraft's Hand. Everett, Pennsylvania: Fantasy Publications, May 1934.

    First edition. Twelvemo. 40 pages. One of the better science fiction/horror fanzines with an impressive list of contributors. This inaugural issue features stories by H.P. Lovecraft, Lloyd Eshbach, August Derleth, Natalie Wooley, and David H. Keller

    Pale blue pictorial wrappers with black print, stapled. Wrappers are chipped and split along edges where it overhangs the textblock; corners are worn; partially split at spine. Textblock is age toned and leaves are a bit brittle but completely intact. Several small corrections have been accomplished in black throughout Celephaïs, H.P. Lovecraft's story in this issue, which have been attributed to Lovecraft himself, supported by a 1979 letter included in this lot from John H. Stanley of the Brown University Library, affirming his belief that these are indeed Lovecraft's own corrections. Letter is typed on Brown University Library letterhead and bears age toning and stains along upper and lower edges.

    This is an extremely rare and desirable Lovecraft piece, certain to spark great interest in collectors! From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
