Cats of Ulthar in the Aonian

Cute black cats!
This rarity found on ebay. The seller states:
THE CATS OF ULTHAR by Howard Phillips Lovecraft in the Winter 1943 issue of THE AONIAN.The issue is part of a volume, nicely bound in black cloth, containing all 13 issues of this handsome amateur journal. The original wrappers are bound in, too.Published by Tim Thrift and Ernest A. Edkins (friend and correspondent of Lovecraft). Besides CATS, "The Aonian" also reprinted Lovecraft's essay on amateur journalism's history, "Looking Backward", in two parts. Among the other contents are articles by and about W. Paul Cook (of The Recluse Press), Robert H. Barlow, Rheinhart Kleiner, Samuel Loveman, Arthur H. Goodenough, Edwin B. Hill, etc.
