[circa 1915]. A beguiling head-shot of London in Mounties-style hat. Sepia-toned print measuring 4.25 x 6.5". SIGNED BY LONDON at base.

LOVECRAFT'S TEENAGE SCHOOL BOOKS WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH NAME AND ADDRESS IN EACH: Three volumes. H. P. Lovecraft. LOVECRAFT'S TEENAGE SCHOOL BOOKS WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH NAME AND ADDRESS IN EACH: Three volumes.
(Providence, RI: Circa 1904-05). Three of Lovecraft’s well-worn school books from his teen years, each with his autograph name "H. P. LOVECRAFT" and address "PROVIDENCE/ R.I." on front endpaper. The first two volumes reveal a general teenage exuberance combined with the joy of having ones own (perhaps newly acquired) set of name and date stamps; whereas the third book, which is not dated by him, shows a more mature and restrained signature, leading us to believe it is from slightly later studies. The three books are A HAND-BOOK OF CLASSICAL GEOGRAPHY, CHRONOLOGY, MYTHOLOGY, AND ANTIQUITIES (By T. P. and W. F. Allen; Boston: 1861), with Lovecraft’s signature and address as described above and date, also in his hand, "May 6, 1904," decoratively underlined (as is his address), and with his name and date stamped beneath. Also with the ownership signature "Franklin C. Clark / Feb. 25th 1865 / Providence RI / Brown University / Class of ‘69" written with a flourish the young Lovecraft seems to be emulate herein. "Franklin C. Clark (1847 - 1915) .... married LILLIAN DELORA PHILLIPS, WITH WHOM LOVECRAFT HAD LIVED illian Delora Phillips (1856-1932) in 1902; they had no children. She was the aunt of the CELEBRATED HORROR AUTHOR HOWARD P. LOVECRAFT (1890-1937), who CITED DR. CLARK'S ERUDITION AS AN EARLY INFLUENCE" (Rhode Island Historical Society Manuscripts Collection web page for the Franklin C. Clark Papers). Also with brief note to text on p.83, presumably in Lovecraft's hand. AN INTRODUCTION TO THE GREEK LANGUAGE (by Asahel C. Kendrick; New York: 1846), with Lovecraft’s signature and address as described above and street address, also in his hand, "598 Angell St.," and with his name and date "Aug 31 1905" stamped on endpaper and on title page. Also with Lovecraft's penciled notes in Latin on front and rear pastedowns which appear to compare Latin to Greek and German (with the former fairing better than either of the latter in the comparison), and with a few words in Greek we won’t attempt. AND WITH LOVECRAFT’S HOME-MADE INDEX TO VOCABULARY SECTION pages [145] to [174] -- a penciled Greek alphabet running vertically down page [145] and fore edges pp.[147]-172 trimmed in varying lengths to create 14 tabs which Lovecraft has labeled accordingly, and with HIS PENCILED NOTE on page [174], "THIS BOOK WAS INDEXED BY HP LOVECRAFT SUN SEP 24 1905." And, last but not least, as they say, EXCERPTA EX SCRIPTIS PUBLII OVIDII NASONIS [Excerpts from the Writings of Ovid] (by B. A. Gould; Boston; 1848), with Lovecraft’s autograph name and full address, including "U.S.A." in a more mature hand and with Lovecraft’s extensive translation (?) notes to the first four sections of the book (pages 15 to 58). This final volume is in good condition; the other two are fair--the spine is missing entirely from one and partially from the other--but all three are otherwise complete. SCHOOL BOOKS FROM A CRUCIAL PERIOD IN LOVECRAFT'S YOUTH.

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 bound by Arkam House in 1961 of Lovecraft's first book of fiction. W. Paul Cook planned to publish "Shunned House" in the first issue of his magazine, The Recluse, but in 1928 he printed approximately 300 sets of sheets with an introduction by Frank Belknap for a separate book edition instead. He neither published nor bound the sheets. In 1934, Robert Barlow (later to be Lovecraft's literary executor) reportedly received 225 copies of the sheets, distributing around 50 over the next few years, some unbound and others in various bindings. Arkham House subsequently obtained approximately 150 useable sets of sheets and issued 50 unbound copies circa 1959 and 100 in black cloth boards in 1961, this being one of the copies in black cloth boards. State "A" of the copyright cancel label per Currey. Slim, small octavo black cloth boards lettered in gilt on spine. Near fine with tiny scratch to bottom front board and spine lettering rubbed as usual but still wholly readable. Issued without dust jacket. [Joshi 1-A-5. Currey C(2)]. LOVECRAFT'S FIRST BOOK.

BIZARRE: "The Thing in the Moonlight." H. P. Lovecraft. BIZARRE: "The Thing in the Moonlight."
Cleveland: Bizarre, 1941. First edition. Volume 4, No. 1, January, 1941. Although not indicated as such in the magazine, Lovecraft's contribution is based on a letter Lovecraft wrote to Donald Wandrei on November 24, 1927, with the first three and last five paragraphs added by editor J. Chapman Miske, who also made slight alterations to the rest of the text. Illustration by Walter Marconette, "His face was a white cone tapering to one blood-red tentacle." The story was later collected in THE TOMB AND OTHER TALES (1970), among others. This issue also includes A. Merritt, John W. Campbell, Hannes Bok, et al. Very good in stapled paperwraps with light soiling and few creases and rubs. BASED NEARLY WORD FOR WORD ON A 1927 LETTER TO DONALD WANDREI.

FANTASY MAGAZINE: "The Challenge from Beyond: Weird Fantasy Story." H. P. Lovecraft. FANTASY MAGAZINE: "The Challenge from Beyond: Weird Fantasy Story."
New York: (Science Fiction Digest Co.), 1935. First edition. Third Anniversary Issue, September, 1935.

Lovecraft's fellow "Weird Fantasy" authors are Catherine Lucille "C. L." Moore, A. Merritt, Robert E. Howard and Frank Belknap Long, Jr.; Lovecraft's contribution (which presents Howard with a stumper of a cliff-hanger--the mind of the main character is transported into the body of a horrible alien) runs 26 paragraphs and constitutes the bulk of the story. Also includes a round-robin story from sci-fi writers Stanley G. Weinbaum, Donald Wandrei, Edward E. Smith, Harl Vincent and Murray Leinster. Pages darkened with age, tiny tears to cover edges, small chip from top left front cover, still better than good in stapled paperwraps. 10 AUTHORS! ALL STARS!
