Catalogue Note

Second edition.  One of less than 50 copies.  Charleston  began as a letter to H. C. Koenig, who was planning a trip to South Carolina.  Koenig was so impressed with the letter that he produced a few copies (probably fewer than 25).  He then asked Lovecraft to rewite the letter in essay form.  Lovecraft complied, making minor changes to the text.   Koenig estimated that he printed between 30 and 50 copies of the second printing, issuing them in simple brown paper folder. The errata leaves are scarce.

A fine copy.
