Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-4] 5-461 [462: blank], title page printed in black and red, original black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red. First edition. A resourceful collection of twenty-one horror stories, including H. P. Lovecraft's "The Call of Cthulhu," his second story to be published in a hardbound book. In his introduction Harre praises Lovecraft's story which, "in its cumulative awesomeness and building of effect to its appalling finale, is reminiscent of Poe." Lovecraft sent Harre a copy of the typescript of "The Call of Cthulhu," hence the text printed here is far superior to that published in the February 1928 issue of WEIRD TALES. In addition to Lovecraft's tale, the anthology includes stories by E. F. Benson, Gouverner Morris, Irvin S. Cobb, Ellen Glasgow, Leonid Andreyeff, M. P. Shiel, Beatrice Grimshaw, Gertrude Atherton and others, as well as Edmond Hamilton's "The Monster-God of Mamurth," which appears here for the first time in a book. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 762. Bleiler (1978), p. 94. Reginald 06793. Bookplate of William F. Kemp on the front paste-down and his signature on same and on the front free endpaper. A nearly fine copy in good pictorial dust jacket (designed by Politzer) with wear at edges, general dust soiling, and a long tear in the rear panel with a 70x25 mm associated chip with loss of some descriptive text for one of the books advertised there. An important anthology seldom found in jacket. (#149474). N° de réf. du libraire 149474
