John D. Haefele — author of Lovecraft: The Great Tales, A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos, etc. — just popped up an article further investigating how many — or how few — copies may exist of the last of many, many titles published in August Derleth’s lifetime.
For all the book collectors out there.
As of this moment, Haefele calculates that out of the run a total of five copies signed by Derleth survive.
Of course, as an arch-collector he owns one — cover seen at the top, John Hancock below.
