DescriptionWilliam Hope Hodgson: The House on the Borderland. (Sauk City: Arkham House, 1946), first edition thus, 639 pages, black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (6.25" x 9.25"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration by Hannes Bok. After his death in World War I in 1918, Hodgson slipped into obscurity until Arkham House published this book in 1946. One of three thousand copies printed by Arkham House, this edition of The House on the Borderland holds the distinction for being the first Arkham House title with a four color dust jacket, with stunning design by prolific illustrator Hannes Bok. Besides the titular story, this book contains the Hodgson tales, "The Boats of the 'Glen Carrig'", "The Ghost Pirates", and "The Night Land", along with an essay about and bibliography of Hodgson. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with very minimal edge wear to the book. The jacket is very good, with minor rubbing to the corners, and tape repair to a small portion at the head of the spine. A truly fabulous addition to any library of the macabre. From the Ventura Collection.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
