The back flap has been inscribed by the dust jacket designer, Virgil Finlay: ?This jacket is a photographic composite of early Weird Tales drawings, probably only one or two were for H.P.L. stories - I wish I might have found time for more of his work which I did admire. Virgil Finlay.? [With] Another copy. First Edition. Near fine. Inscribed at Christmas, 1939 by co-publisher Donald Wandrei. In the apparently unique green proof jacket (very minor wear and soiling); printed without text. Included with these copies are several remarkable and important letters and ephemeral pieces. In a 1937 letter, Howard Wandrei (brother of Donald) writes Virgil Finlay about his own fantasy drawings, announcing that he is to do the artwork for the collected edition of Lovecraft (what became The Outsider and Others). In a one page typed letter, signed, to Finlay, dated 5 October [1939], Derleth writes, ?Don tells me you are at work on a cover for The Ousider and Others. I am delighted to know it, and I am sure that you will pay adequate tribute to HPL in your work on the jacket of his first major book...Don and I stand to divide the loss of circa $1500...I am anxious to see the jacket design when it is finished...? In a one page, typed letter, signed, and dated Nov. 14, 1939, co-publisher Donald Wandrei writes Virgil Finlay regarding the above proof dust jacket and the decision to issue the final one in blue, â??...The green was a particularly detestable and odious color...â? He discusses at some length why black was eliminated as well. A carbon of a letter from the manufacturer to Derleth discusses these problems as well as some difficulties with the binding. In addition, there is a typed letter from Derleth to Mrs. Eddy about the book and her husbandâ??s Weird Tales contributions. There are two announcements from Derleth and Wandrei for the book; a duplicated one is clearly a preliminary effort and does not mention the future publisher, Arkham House, and begs for subscribers; a one page type-set announcement is a more professional presentation and refers to Arkham House.

In a 1937 letter, Howard Wandrei (brother of Donald) writes Virgil Finlay about his own fantasy drawings, announcing that he is to do the artwork for the collected edition of Lovecraft (what became The Outsider and Others). In a one page typed letter, signed, to Finlay, dated 5 October [1939], Derleth writes, ?Don tells me you are at work on a cover for The Ousider and Others. I am delighted to know it, and I am sure that you will pay adequate tribute to HPL in your work on the jacket of his first major book...Don and I stand to divide the loss of circa $1500...I am anxious to see the jacket design when it is finished...? In a one page, typed letter, signed, and dated Nov. 14, 1939, co-publisher Donald Wandrei writes Virgil Finlay regarding the above proof dust jacket and the decision to issue the final one in blue, ?...The green was a particularly detestable and odious color...? He discusses at some length why black was eliminated as well. A carbon of a letter from the manufacturer to Derleth discusses these problems as well as some difficulties with the binding. In addition, there is a typed letter from Derleth to Mrs. Eddy about the book and her husband?s Weird Tales contributions. There are two announcements from Derleth and Wandrei for the book; a duplicated one is clearly a preliminary effort and does not mention the future publisher, Arkham House, and begs for subscribers; a one page type-set announcement is a more professional presentation and refers to Arkham House.

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Böhmisch Kamnitz und Dresden, 29. VI. - 18. XII. 1939, einer ohne Ort und Datum [wohl 1941].. Zusammen (2+2+2+2=) 8 SS. auf 4 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit einem eh. adr. Kuvert und einer Beilage (s. u.).. Alle an Dieter Keller, damals wohl im Stuttgarter Spemann-Verlag tätig. - Inhaltsreiche Briefe über die private Situation Hegenbarths (1884-1962) in den ersten Kriegsjahren, sein Ischias-Leiden, das ihn in seinem Schaen sehr einschränkte ("Aber wie geht es anderen, jüngeren Kollegen? Sie sind eingezogen und kommen überhaupt nicht zur Ausübung Ihrer berufl. Tätigkeit") und ein Illustrationsprojekt: " Turul macht mir sehr viel Freude und ich hoffe Ihnen das gesamte Material in zirka 20 Tagen zugehen lassen zu können". - Ende 1939 dankt er dafür, "dass ich mir je einen Abzug von den Turul-Illustrationen behalten darf". - Bietet Keller an, ihm einige Bilder zu übersenden, von denen er sich eines aussuchen und dafür als Dankeszeichen nur einen Freundschaftspreis zu zahlen brauche: "Erstaunt bin ich immer wieder, wie Sie bisher meine Arbeiten verfolgen und finde Ihr Interesse daran sehr lieb [...] Sie haben mich durch Ihre neuerliche Empfehlung beim Verlag abermals verbunden". - Die Erwähnung der Illustrationen zu Josef Bieniasz' Bärengeschichte "Turul" korrigiert die Entstehung der Arbeiten um ein Jahrzehnt. Wie viele der Illustrationsfolgen aus der Kriegszeit fand sich auch für dieses Buch erst nach Kriegsende ein Verleger, das Buch erschien 1952 im Stuttgarter Franckh Verlag, in dem Dieter Keller tätig war. - Beilagen: Ein Neujahrskarte. Klischeedruck nach Tuschzeichnung. Rückseitig mit eigenhändigem Gruß. - Gut erhalten. - Vgl. Löffer D 30.
