    A Legendary Production

    H. P. Lovecraft. The Lovecraft Collectors Library. Selected Essays [First and Second Series], Selected Poetry [First and Second Series], The Amateur Journalist, Bibliographies and Commentaries. North Tonawanda, New York: SSR Publications, 1952-1955. First edition, limited to seventy-five numbered sets, of which this is number twenty-four. Large octavo, seven volumes, mimeographed from typewritten copy, printed wrappers, stapled. All published. A legendary -- and very fragile -- production, with covers and text paper on very poor pulp-like paper stock. As is usually the case, the text paper is darkened and covers are tanned, but this is a remarkable, nearly fine set. Individual issues are hard to come by, complete sets are rare, especially in this condition.

    More Information: Joshi I-A-28-a, III-B-35, and II-C-27.

    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.
