Reliure : Soft cover
Edition : 1st Edition
Small octavo, single issue, original tan wrappers, printed in black. Includes "Dagon" by H. P. Lovecraft, the first printing of this major early Lovecraft story, which W. Paul Cook considered to be Lovecraft's first mature weird tale (See Cook, In Memoriam Howard Phillips Lovecraft , pp. 60-3). In 1917, prompted by Cook and other amateurs who had been impressed by two youthful efforts, "The Beast in the Cave" (written 1905; published in THE VAGRANT, June 1918) and "The Alchemist" (written 1908; published in THE UNITED AMATEUR, November 1916), Lovecraft wrote "The Tomb" and "Dagon." "Both 'The Tomb' and 'Dagon' are . the nuclei of other and still better tales by Lovecraft: the former is the ultimate origin of 'The Case of Charles Dexter Ward' (1927), and the latter was writ large in 'The Call of Cthulhu' (1926) and 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (1931)." - Joshi, H. P. Lovecraft: A Life, p. 159. Also present is Cook's critical article "Howard P. Lovecraft's Fiction," and the third part of "Twenty Years' Recollections of Amateur Journalism (Written in 1913)" by Arthur Henry Goodenough. Joshi I-B-i-13 and p. 414. Text block a bit tanned (as is usually the case), a fine copy. Rare. (#108331). N° de réf. du libraire 108331
