(Lovecraft, Howard Phillips) Eddy, Muriel E. THREE AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED (ALsS), dated 1 July 1958, 11 August 1959, and 10 April 1960, totaling 8 pages, all to Philip Jack Grill, variously signed "Muriel Eddy" or "Muriel E. Eddy," plus a 2-page AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT SIGNED (AMsS) "Private Sketch On Lovecraft," written for Grill, a photocopy of a 3-page TYPED LETTER SIGNED dated 21 May 1958, to Grill, signed "Muriel Eddy" in pencil, articles mentioning Lovecraft clipped from Providence, R.I. newspapers, and five snapshots of Lovecraft's grave and a packet of leaves from the Swain Point Cemetery where he is buried. "It appears that Lovecraft came to know the Eddys in the fall of 1923. Mrs. Eddy wrote numerous memoirs of Lovecraft, all saying much the same things as her [initial] 1945 account ['Howard Phillips Lovecraft' (in RHODE ISLAND ON LOVECRAFT, edited by Donald M. Grant and Thomas P. Hadley]." - Joshi and Schultz, An H. P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia, p. 84. Letters have old mailing folds; all in fine condition. The mailing envelopes (roughly opened) are present.
