The only book by Lovecraft published during the author’s lifetime, crudely printed by William Crawford in a small edition in April 1936, about 150 to 200 copies of which were bound in black cloth, as here, before November of that year. A further hundred copies were bound in white cloth; the balance of the edition was spoiled or otherwise lost. A landmark in science-fiction publishing
