NAPA Report of 1932

The seller states:

Here's a rare and unusual item for the Lovecraft collector. . ."National Amateur Press Association, Report of Vincent B. Haggerty, Secretary, For the Year Ended, July 2, 1932"SIGNED by Haggerty.Bound in leatherette cover. Approximately 100 typewritten unnumbered pages, printed on one side only.The report includes an activity report for each member, with one page devoted to each member, listing their contributions.Lovecraft's page has five items listed -- a couple of which are not recorded in Joshi's BIBLIOGRAPHY of Lovecraft. (The winning bidder will get to see what they are. . .) This is one of probably only several copies, but I haven't seen any other copies.

This is certainly a rare item. This is one of a few things I've seen on ebay that hints that the full scope of Lovecraft is not yet completed by scholars. Maybe these would be minor footnotes, but there have been a few hints that even all of Lovecraft's minor or revisionist stories have not been yet uncovered.
