DescriptionH. P. Lovecraft. The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath. Buffalo: Shroud Publishers, 1955.
First edition, first printing (Currey D, first variant printing). One of 50 specially bound copies signed by the publisher Kenneth J. Krueger, from a total edition of 1,500 copies (original and only edition published). Numbered 467 of 1,500. Octavo. 107 pages.
Publisher's black cloth with gilt spine titles and both states of the dust jacket present. Remarkable condition, with minimal rubbing at the flap folds of the outer dust jacket. The white first state jacket has a red ink smear towards the top of the front panel, most likely from the printer. A beautiful, fine copy of a rare Lovecraft title.
According to Chalker, Krueger chose numbers 450 through 500 to bind in cloth, though a few other numbers outside this range have been observed. "In 1959, when Krueger was doing his ill-fated Food for Demons...he took a number of excess copies, apparently at random, and bound these uniform with the original cloth, using a yellow jacket with Maker of Moons [The Moon Maker] plugged on the back, also used to bind the rest of the pbs." (Chalker 574). From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
