Description

    Poetry from Arkham House

    Leah Bodine Drake. A Hornbook for Witches. Poems of Fantasy. Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1950.

    First edition from an original printing of 553 copies. Twelvemo. 70 pages.

    Black buckram with gilt spine lettering. Minor wear to the binding, mainly at the spine head and tail, with slightly bumped corners. Contents virtually unread. Original scarce dust jacket is in great shape though the flaps have been slightly trimmed, bearing artwork by Frank Utpatel. Overall, a fine copy.

    As noted by Leon Nielsen: "The cost of printing this slim volume of poetry was subsidized by the author, who, in turn, received 300 copies of the original 553 copies printed. Thus Arkham House had only 253 copies for sale."
