Shadow Over Innsmouth. Illustrated by Frank A. Utpatel.
Pennsylvania: Visionary Publishing Co., 1936 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to front cover and spine in silver, with the errata slip laid in. With the dust jacket by Utpatel. Housed in a custom black flat-backed folding case. 7 binder's blanks at front Blindstamp to foot of title page. Spine gently rolled, light bumps to ends; an excellent copy of this fragile book in the slightly dirty jacket, small chips to spine ends, short closed tear to head of front panel. Frontispiece and 3 plates by Utpatel. First edition, first printing. According to the publisher, "about 400 sets of sheets were printed, but half of these were destroyed. About 200 copies were bound and issued"; making this an uncommon book in any condition, only found institutionally in North America, and traced at auction just 11 times. An unillustrated white jacket was also issued with the first printing, with no known priority between the two jackets, although Utpatel's is generally considered more appealing. Bleiler 1039. [Attributes: First Edition]
