THE SHUNNED HOUSE. H. P. Lovecraft. THE SHUNNED HOUSE.
Athol, Mass. W. Paul Cook / The Recluse Press, 1928. First edition sheets, one of only 100 copies of Lovecraft's first book of fiction bound by Arkam House in 1961. Bibliographer S. T. Joshi calls it Lovecraft's "legendary stillborn first 'book'." W. Paul Cook had wanted to publish "Shunned House" in the first issue of The Recluse but, for reasons unknown, decided instead to print the story as a small book with a preface by Frank Belknap. He printed approximately 300 copies of the sheets in 1928 but neither bound nor published the book at that time. In 1934, Robert Barlow (later to be Lovecraft's literary executor) reportedly received 225 copies of the sheets and distributed around 50, some unbound and some bound in various bindings over the next few years. Arkham House subsequently obtained approximately 150 useable sets of sheets and issued 50 unbound copies circa 1959 and the 100 bound in black cloth boards as seen here. This copy with copyright cancel label in Currey's first state with "100 copies bound by Arkham House, 1961" printed in pencil at bottom of label. Small octavo, black cloth boards lettered in gilt on spine. Tiny scratch to bottom front board, spine lettering rubbed, mostly affecting "Lovecraft" and "Arkham House," otherwise near fine as issued, without dust jacket. Joshi 1-A-5. Currey C(2). LOVECRAFT'S "LEGENDARY STILLBORN FIRST 'BOOK'"
