    Robert E. Howard. The Sowers of the Thunder. With Illustrations and Decorations by Roy G. Krenkel. West Kingston, Rhode Island: Donald M. Grant, Publisher, 1973.

    First edition. Octavo. 285 pages. Copiously illustrated throughout the text.

    Publisher's gray cloth covers with illustration and text stamped in black on the front cover and the spine. Black textured and illustrated dust jacket, with $12.00 price on front inner flap, and a blurb in a white box with red lettering on the back. Top edge black. Illustrated endpapers in gray tones. Slightly rubbed and soiled jacket, minor bumping to corners of covers and jacket. Altogether a tight and very good copy.

    Howard (January 22, 1906 - June 11, 1936) first published this historical fiction work in Oriental Stories, Winter 1932. It was not until 1973 that this story was published in book form by Donald M. Grant, known for lavishly illustrated publications.
