    Clark Ashton Smith. Odes and Sonnets. San Francisco: The Book Club of California, 1918.

     

    First edition, limited to 300 copies numbered on a special limitation page bound in back. Inscribed to  Porter Garnett, writer, curator of the Bancroft Library, and founder of Laboratory Press by the then-President of the Book Club of California and his treasurer. With Garnett's small bookplate on the front pastedown. Quarto. 28 pages. Pages with ornate floral decoration by Florence Lundborg.

     

    Cloth backstrip and paper covered boards. Title label on the spine. Some browning to the edges of the boards and cloth of the spine, else a sound copy in very good condition.

     

    Smith is probably best remembered for his fantasy, horror, and science fiction short stories but up until about 1925 he issued several volumes of poetry. This limited edition of Odes and Sonnets is quite scarce, especially so with the California association of Porter Garnett.

    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.
