    One of Krueger's "50" in Cloth

    H. 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 412 of 1,500. Octavo. 107 pages plus limitation page.

    Publisher's black cloth with gilt spine titles and the second state dust jacket. Mildly bumped corners. Spine lightly sunned. Minor rubbing and a spot of soiling to dust jacket panels. A beautiful, near 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, including the copy at hand. "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).
