    A Very Rare Book from Arkham House

    Leah Bodine Drake. A Hornbook for Witches. Poems of Fantasy. Sauk City: Arkham House, 1950. First edition, one of 553 copies printed (most of which went to the author rather than for sale). Octavo. 70 pages. Publisher's black cloth and dust jacket designed by Frank Utpatel. Jacket rubbed at joints, and a faint crease near the front flap (not unusual for the paper used for the jacket). A bright, fine copy of a notoriously difficult Arkham House title.
