Description

    Robert E. Howard. Conan the Conqueror the Hyborean Age. New York: Gnome Press, [1950].

    First edition, first printing. Octavo. 255 pages.

    Publisher's maroon cloth covers lettered in blue on the front cover and spine. Illustrated dust jacket designed by David Kyle, with $2.75 price on front inner flap. Endpapers illustrated with maps by John Forte. Covers slightly rubbed, jacket spine sunned, minor soiling to back of jacket, edges of jacket rubbed. Altogether a very good copy.

    This work was Howard's (January 22, 1906 - June 11, 1936) only full length novel featuring his most famous character, Conan. Although submitted to Dennis Archer in 1934 for publication, it was not until 1950 that the work was published in novel form by Gnome Press, due to the earlier bankruptcy of Dennis Archer. The work first appeared in five parts in Weird Tales magazine between December 1935 and April 1936.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
