Description:
Sauk City,: Arkham House, 1950. [First Edition]. A collection of forty-seven macabre themed poems, originally published in various journals and magazines, including Weird Tales, Wings, The Arkham Sampler, and others. One of the included poems, 'The Ballad of the Jabberwock' won the Stephen Vincent Benet award in 1946. Werewolves, Dragons, Witches, Kelpies, Fauns, Centaurs, are only a smattering of the mythical and supernatural subjects explored. Readily approachable, the majority of poems are only a page in length. Drake was a popular Weird Tales poet with more appearances in WEIRD TALES than Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, or H.P. Lovecraft. With so few copies printed, [553 copies]the book is a legendary Arkham House rarity, with only half the edition run offered to the public. The printing on the spine of this copy runs British stylefrom bottom to topas I believe it does on all copies. D.j., spine lettering lightly aged, 1/4" spot of color rubbed off rear of d.j., lettering, thin glue… Read More

Lakeport, Calif.: The Futile Press, 1937. [First edition, second state]. The Futile Press, founded by the Beck brothers, Groo and Claire later assisted by Clyde Beck, were young F & SF zealots, who, with their small handpress printed H.P. Lovecraft's: Notes & Commonplace Book, this booklet by Clark Ashton Smith, and had plans for future publications including Clark Ashton Smith'sThe Jasmine Girdle. Friends with Robert H. Barlow, there developed some bad blood between such notables as Clark Ashton Smith, and other fantasy field personalities, with Barlow and the Beck brothers's association with Barlow, and projects were shelved. With the last surviving brother, Groo, Roy A. Squires purchased The Futile Press's remaining papers and discovered that there were loose sheets ot NERO enough to complete 13 complete books. The books were handbound in vellum spine and marbled papers, by Kris Anderson, now Kris Etchison. Very handsome presentation. So this would bibliographically be termed a "Second… Read More

Description:
New York: Author's Edition, 1923. [First Edition]. H.P. Lovecraft helped edit this book of poetry and contributed a 4-1/2 page "Biographical & Critical Preface" comprising over 2000 words, and additionally six poems dedicated to Jonathan E. Hoag, celebrating from his 87th to his 92nd birthdays. Although not written by Lovecraft this is an important addition to a Lovecraft library as his first appearance in hardcovers, a book he helped edit, and his more than 2000 word introduction on Hoag speaks of HPL's own views on poetry. There are additional tributes to Hoag from Winifrid Virginia Jackson, James F. Morton, Arthur H. Goodenough and others. The book is inscribed and signed in a florid hand, by Jonathan E. Hoag, dated July 20, 1923." Hoag lived into his 96th year, passing away in 1927. The gilt on the spine is dulled but readable. The book shows a little wear commensurate with age, and is signed by two additional amateurs of the time. A v.g.- copy.

Description:
Sauk City: Arkham House, 1971. [First edition]. Submitted to Arkham House in 1949, SELECTED POEMS was a career-spanning selection by Smith himself, with many early poems revised or rewritten, including his epic THE HASHISH-EATER which is here presented in its final version (personally, I prefer it's first version as presented in EBONY & CRYSTAL, in 1922). Smith considered SELECTED POEMS his greatest book because he first and foremost thought of himself as a poet. Unfortunately the delays in publication due to economic concerns of such a hefty volume of poetry, then additional frictions between Derleth and Carolyn Smiththe author's wife, Smith did not live to see its eventual appearance in print. Over 500 poems. This is an exceptional copy, very fine, unread with white paper and just a few tiny rubs to d.j. A lovely copy!
