After years of talking to this estate we finally agreed to start to post and sell this 500 + estate of Antiquarian and Out of Print Books. The estate has agreed with the first batch of 20 books with a wide arrange of styles and subjects. Six great First Edition with orignal clean dust jacket of Arkham House publishing and some signed by the authors. Arkham House had some of the best cosmic horror, fantasy and science fiction writers with incredible graphic covers. Some writers I have and that will be for sale are, Henry Whitehead, Clark Smith, Donald Wandrei and Frank Long. These are some of the best writing from the 1940's and 1950's in the genre of Horror in the vain of H.P. Lovecraft.
Here is a piece that is high on my list of wants for a long time, The Eccentric Mirror by G. H. Wilson published in 1806 by James Cundee in the complete 4 volume set. The original marble endboards with 3/4 Moroccan leather binding and many steel line engravings. A true rare and unique item that will be a major piece in a collector of Oddities, Medical or just the collector of Antiquarian books.
To contiue in that vein, an 1804 first edition of Lives of the Necromancers by William Godwin. This professional rebound edtion with marble endboards with beautiful Moroccan leather protects this un-trimmed book. A fantastic book of the early treatise on Occult, Magic and Early Culture's beliefs of the unexplained. A wonderful book in fantastic condition and a rare find.
