Description

First edition. Small format, original printed wrappers - one sheet folded to make four leaves, 16 x 12 cm. 80 copies printed. Tiny nicks to edges, slight toning to paper stock, a fine copy. Reprinted several times since the 1970's by the Necronomicon Press, but the reprints are easily identifiable as such. This is the true first edition, and it is rare. Housed in a specially made folding case with printed paper title to spine panel.

Comments

According to the publisher, 80 copies were printed; very few survive today. There are no copies of this item held in institutional libraries (according to Worldcat); Brown University Library in Providence, Rhode Island, the holder of the largest Lovecraft Collection extant, has only the Strange Company and Necronomicon Press Reprints from the 1970's and 1980's. Joshi 1-A-13-a.
