Description

    Robert E. Howard: Skull-Face and Others. (Sauk City: Arkham House, 1946), first edition, 475 pages, black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (6.25" x 9.25"), price-clipped dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration by Hannes Bok. This first Arkham House collection by the creator of Conan contains 24 Howard stories, plus a foreword by August Derleth and memorial pieces by both H.P. Lovecraft and E. Hoffmann Price. The lion's share of the Howard stories contained herein were first published in Weird Tales, where Howard initially made his lasting reputation. The textblock of this copy is tight and clean, but for one small ink stain to the bottom of the front endpapers. Very minimal edge wear to the book and dust jacket do not detract from this fine copy of Howard's early adventures. From the Ventura Collection.
