Sauk City, Wisconsim: Arkham House, 1962. Richard Taylor. First. Hardcover. Fair / Near Fine. Item #87
7.75 x 5.25", black cloth, 174pp, limited to 2,000 copies. A delightful collection of eight stories based upon Lovecraft’s dreams. This is one of my favorite Arkham House dust jackets. Taylor’s artwork is in brilliant yellow and this copy has an almost imperceptible amount of dulling to the spine. The binding is solid and pages are bright. Gilt stamping on spine is flawless. It is unfortunate that a former owner felt it necessary to add his bibliographic details in pen to the table of contents and the copyright page. For that reason I consider this a reading copy or a collectable copy for the beginning collector with a modest budget and looking to fill the empty spot on their Arkham shelf. A fair copy.
