August Derleth. A House Above Cuzco. New York: The Candlelight Press, 1969.

    First edition. Octavo. 67 pages.

    Quarter cream cloth over marbled brown boards. Spine is lettered in brown. Orange endpapers. Orange dust jacket with $6.00 price on front inner flap. Colophon at the rear of the book, "This book has been printed at The Prairie Press in Iowa City. The type is Bulmer, hand set, and the paper is wove Curtis Rag." Some discoloration to top edges, slightly sunned jacket spine, top of jacket bumped. Altogether a very good copy.

    Derleth's (February 24, 1909 - July 4, 1971) novella is situated in the Andes above Cuzco, Peru. Although the work is not directly about Derleth, one can sense personal disclosure on the part of the author.
