58. H.P. Lovecraft – THE SHUNNED HOUSE – printed by W. Paul Cook (The Recluse Press) in 1928 in an edition of 300. However, the sheets were never bound by Cook. Eventually, approximately 150 sets of the unbound sheets were acquired by August Derleth. Roughly 50 of these were distributed by Arkham House as unbound sheets, before 100 sets were bound by Arkham House. Glenn acquired a set of the unbound sheets and then had a local (Houston, TX) bindery bind them, in the state shown here. At the top right of the title page are what we assume are the bindery’s pencil notations, “Lord 1R.” The Arkham cancel copyright notice is pasted in, and is Currey’s state (a). The pages bear the “Canterbury Laid” watermark. An incredible copy of Lovecraft’s first book, with a great provenance.
