Catalogue Note

Bibliographic and literary commentary from Providence. "I'm gradually trying to whip my programme into shape, hence am getting around to various matters one by one. It now occurs to me that I haven't yet sent you that 'rare first edition' of Ulthar which I shew'd you up at Sunny's—hence am herewith repairing the deficiency . . . . my eight duplicates having arriv'd some time ago. It if doesn't fit into your private collection, you might catalogue it at 9000 bucks or so as an early Dragon-Fly press item. … Meanwhile I trust the Bodley prospers, and that you're duly planning your next raid on New England. In the Feb. Astounding you'll find the first instalments of my Mts. of Madness—with illustrations not half bad. Some misprints (like palaeocene for palaeogean), but you can get a fair idea of what I'm trying to say. Also a tale by the Child in the same issue. A sort of hill-billy printer down in Everett Pa. is planning to publish my 'Shadow Over Innsmouth' as a book, and he has sent the first batch of proofs for revision. Hope it makes better progress than The Shunned House!"

Neither the letter nor the postcard is in Letters, ed. A. Derleth and J. Turner.
