        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to "Dear Klarkash-Ton" [Clark Ashton Smith] written on both sides of a single sheet of plain 5 1/2" x 9 inch paper, signed "E'ch-Pi-El." The letter is not dated, but is accompanied by an envelope addressed to Smith in Lovecraft's hand which is postmarked 21 March 1932. The envelope has Lovecraft's full signature and 10 Barnes Street return address in his hand on the verso.

      - A chatty letter, relating literary news about himself and their fellow writers of weird fiction: the demise of Swanson's GALAXY magazine, which "died a-borning!," the purchase of a new fountain pen at Woolworth's, his aversion to "composing" on the typewriter ("the very sight of the damn thing empties my mind of all connected ideas and images"), typing a circulation copy of "Witch House" (when he "can get the nerve" to do so), his plan to "fix up a new note book of daemonic plots" as "I've lent my old one -- used since 1919 -- to various brother fantaseers from time to time, & it's just about worn to pieces," and the progress of stories by various mutual acquaintances. "Tucked into this letter, is one of those fragments of weird fiction that emerge spontaneously in some of Lovecraft's letters (though usually during the critique of some work by the recipient). Here, Lovecraft mentions that during a visit to a local museum he 'came upon a black, gleaming specimen which certainly cannot be other than an eikon of Tsuthoggna! It was a semi-shapeless congeries of nighted curves -- squat & swollen, & with a curious suggestion of flabby viscosity despite the superficially petrific composition. [and it] left little room for doubt that it once stood in some curtained niche. of some such arcane delver as Athlaphoros, who dwelt in the Street of the Alembics & vanished suddenly shortly before the desertion of the city.' All pretty juvenile, no doubt, but the boyish exuberance is hard to resist." - Robert Eldridge. Faint fold creases, else fine, with "Mar 21, 1932" later added in pencil at top of first page. Good content. (#114496) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      No Place: No Publisher, 1st Edition, 1919 ( Arkham house Association ) - ----------holographic (COMPLETELY hand written by LOVECRAFT) manuscript for the poem, Despair, with a nice clear signature and date at the end by the master himself, purchased from the granddaughter of the publisher ( Horace L Lawson ) of the Wolverine magazine, a periodical which published at least 5 H P Lovecraft pieces, the Wolverine published Arthur Jermyn in March 1921 ( Joshi 1-B-i-2 1), The Nameless City in November 1921 ( Joshi 1-B-i-37 ), The Street in December 1920 (Joshi 1-B-i-45), The Vivisector in June 1921 (Joshi 1-B-ii-238) and On the Return of Maurice Winter Moe, Esq. in June 1921 ( Joshi 1-B-iii-137 ). there is no record of Despair having been published by The Wolverine, this 2 page poem is completely holographic (in Lovecraft's hand), written on brown paper (the reverse is actually an order form for a Book Club) and has the date 192__, Lovecraft has signed this as H P Lovecraft and dated the piece February 1919, as well he has written a note in the corner stating that this poem appeared in Pine Cones June 1919, this is certainly from 1919, or at least 1920 when The Wolverine was publishing HPL pieces, the poem is completely legible although some of the letters are a bit faded, the 2 pages have been paper taped on the verso as this was framed by Lawson, there is no bleeding or show through from the tape, the handwriting is undeniably Lovecrafts, the condition overall is VERY GOOD-----, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Book of Modern British Verse

      Boston: Small, Maynard 1919 - 12mo., dark blue cloth stamped in gilt; top edge gilt; lightly soiled. First edition. Porter p. 16. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Sara Teasdale Filsinger - English contemporaries who might do well to emulate her - from William Stanley Braithwaite, Christmas 1919, Arlington Heights, Massachusetts," on the front free endpaper. (Prints poetry by James Joyce, Robert Graves, and others.) ---- To biographer Margaret Carpenter, Boston-born belletrist Braithwaite mused at length about Sara Teasdale, the "dear poet," whose work he had anthologized and generously reviewed for some twenty years. His own verse rooted in the same "exquisite sensibility," Braithwaite saw that "beauty and magic, springtime and stars, sunlight and shadow, the human dream and urgency - were in Sara Teasdale's heart from the beginning, which her mind, like a sun, drew up and there shaped into those images vibrant with music, and then showered forth as a balm for human aches and joys." The year before "The Book of Modern British Verse" appeared, Teasdale was awarded the first (unofficial) Pulitzer Prize for poetry ("Love Songs," 1917) and Braithwaite garnered the Spingarn Medal for "the highest and noblest achievement of an American Negro."

      Printed and published by L. & V. Woolf at The Hogarth Press, Hogarth House, Richmond. 1919. FIRST EDITION. First state text with the 2 missprints on page 13. These were corrected in later copies. 8vo. (9.2 x 6.1 inches). -- An Eliot family copy with the ownership signature of Eliot&#39;s cousin Abigail A(dams) Eliot on the front blank endpaper. Abigail Eliot (1892-1992) was a well known authority on Nursery Education in America and is known to have visited England during 1919-1920 to study at Oxford. -- Sewn in original blue and white marbled paper wraps with the earliest issue title label, printed in red, to the front panel. One of fewer than 250 copies (probably circa 200) hand printed and bound by the Woolfs. The Hogarth Press accounts book shows that 180 copies were sold and twelve presentation or review copies were distributed within a year of publication. Both J. Howard Woolmer and Donald Gallup, in their respective bibliographies of Eliot and The Hogarth Press state that the earliest copies were bound up in paper wrappers of varying texture and design with a red lettered label, and that later copies were bound up in marbled paper wrappers, the majority with a label lettered in black. The fact that this copy has the earliest state, uncorrected text and the earliest state label throws some doubt on this assertion. The wrappers edges are a little chipped and show some minor fading, and there has been a neat, professional repair to a split in the fold of the wrapper but this is still overall a very good example of this fragile booklet. One of the rarest of Eliot&#39;s works, copies with the early state text and label seldom come onto the market, the addition of a family association attached to this copy, adding the strong possibilty of it being one of the 12 presentation copies, makes it rarer still. --- Gallup; A3.--- Woolmer; 4. --- Willis.

Individual original typewritten or carbon copy pages are bound with string into cloth and printed paper boards, with typewritten labels. Unpaginated; the four volumes are a little over 6 inches thick. Nearly every page has additions, corrections and strike-outs in either the author's hand, that of his daughter, or an unknown hand. Two copies of Fowler's 1919 forerunner work, 'Scenes from the Morte d'Arthur', written under his pseudonym Alan Seymour, have been cut up and incorporated into the typescript and also bear manuscript corrections. We understand that this set is one of a very small number--probably no more than five--of copies made up for submission to publishers, and may very well be one of only a couple of copies surviving. According to his biographer, Brian Stableford, 'The Song of Arthur' was his life's work. It was just finished when a bomb destroyed the manuscript in 1941. Wright spent much of the rest of his life recreating it. It was unpublished at his death in 1965. In 'The Song of Arthur', Wright intended to incorporate the whole body of Arthuriana into a single work of blank verse. Volume one commences with Book One, 'Merlin', and volume four concludes with Book XXIV, 'The Death of Arthur'. Some of the books are bound out of order, e.g., 'The Riding of Lancelot' (Book VIII) follows Book IX ('Tristam'). Light wear else in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
