Horror writer HP Lovecraft’s first book comes to auction

While HP Lovecraft is today celebrated as one of the all-time great horror writers, he was an unknown during his lifetime.

Lovecraft Outsider Others

Lovecraft is one of the greatest horror writers of all time 

The Outsiders and Others (1939), his first published story collection, was released two years after he died.

It was printed by Arkham House, set up by two of his friends specifically to get his work out.

This is one of the ultra-rare first edition copies of the book.

It’s expected to sell for around $2,500-3,500 ahead of a May 16 sale at Swann Auction Galleries in New York.
