    William Hope Hodgson. The House on the Borderland. London: Chapman and Hall, 1908.

    First edition. Octavo. xii, 300 pages, plus four pages of advertisements.

    Original red cloth lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Spine dulled. Corners slightly bumped. Mild discoloration to edges. A very good copy.

    A classic novel of supernatural horror praised by H. P. Lovecraft in his Supernatural Horror in Literature, which brought the book to the attention of Lovecraft's publisher August Derleth, whose Arkham House published the first American edition in 1946. The Chapman and Hall edition is a scarce and much sought-after item. From the Frank Collection.

    Bleiler. Currey.
