The Shuttered Room and Other Pieces
by H. P. Lovecraft & Divers Hands, compiled by August Derleth
Arkham House, 1st edition 1959
A collection of writings by and about H. P. Lovecraft.
Hardback in dustwrapper. xiv, 313pp plus b/w plates. 7 x 5.5 inches approx. (195mm x 135mm).
Dustwrapper rubbed and worn to folds and exremities; a touch sunned to spine; somewhat grubby and stained, especially to rear panel. Boards a little marked and stained, some wear to extremities; wear to spine ends and some rubbing and loss of colour to title lettering. Pages a little dusty and marked in places but generally clean; edges of page-block dusty and marked, a little grubby to bottom edge from handling.
Nonetheless, showing wear from being handled and read (…many times it appears) but overall remains a reasonably good copy – displays well in the Richard Taylor dustwrapper.
