August Derleth. Someone in the Dark. Sauk City: 1941. First edition, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. Fine in fine unclipped dust wrapper. About 18.4 cm high. 1415 copies printed. The second Arkham House book and Derleth's first collection of supernatural fiction. Apparently 300 copies were printed in 1967, without Derleth's knowledge, by a friend who claimed to have come across a cache of first editions. However others feel that Derleth was indeed behind this edition and at first tried to pass it off as "found" copies of the original printing. The reprints have headbands and are slightly taller than the original edition. Still at 300 copies printed a scarce edition indeed. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall
