Lovecraft 1936 (Autographed) Document


"To the Members of..." - Signed "Report of the Executive Judges " Signed by H. P. Lovecraft, Vincent B. Haggerty, and Jennie R. Plaiser

Published in "The National Amateur", June, 1936

It's not often you get the opportunity to add an original "H. P. Lovecraft" signature to your collection as he most often signed himself "HPL" or "E'ch-Pi-El", and signed amateur documents are especially rare! This six-page document dated April 25, 1936 was published in the June, 1936 issue of "The National Amateur" and signed not only by HPL but by the noted amateurs Jennie R. Plaiser, Vincent B. Haggerty.

Despite the professional rise in sales and the fame of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, he could never fully sever his ties to amateur journalism and less than a year later Lovecraft would be dead from cancer.

Included along with the six-page signed typed documentation is a copy of "The National Amateur" in which it was published.

A fascinating grouping of Lovecraftiana!
