    August Derleth: Twenty-Five Years of Writing 1926-1951. (Sauk City: Arkham House, no date), first edition, 24 pages, staplebound in wrappers, 24mo (4" x 5.75"). An updated version of Derleth's Twenty Years of Writing, and the second of three pamphlets on the prolific writing career of one of Arkham House's co-founders. Each volume includes bibliographical and biographical information on Derleth, as well as an "Order Blank" for Derleth's available Arkham House listings, such as The Memoirs of Solar Pons. Arkham never offered these three pamphlets for sale; they were issued only to subscribers. This copy is near fine, with a small paint stain, a short pen mark, and very light staining to the front cover. None of these issues detract from this very scarce Arkham pamphlet. From the Ventura Collection.

    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.
