DescriptionAugust Derleth. Something Near. Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1945.
First edition, one of 2000 copies. Octavo. 274 pages.
Publisher's black cloth covers with the spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Ronald Clyne, with the $3.00 price and distinction of war time format on the front inner flap. Covers slightly rubbed, jacket spine and edges are discolored, back of the jacket is soiled, slightly bumped corners, head, and foot of jacket. Altogether a very good copy.
This work represents Derleth's (February 24, 1909 - July 4, 1971) second book published by Arkham House. Most of the stories included in this collection first appeared in the pages of Weird Tales magazine. Of interest is the notification on the front inner flap of the dust jacket of the lighter weight paper and smaller margins due to the wartime format.
