Copy of Roy Squires Cat 8 Surfaces

Details from the auctioneer:
Catalog 8, H.P. Lovecraft and Friends' Books and Autographs
This exquisitely printed (of course) Roy Squires publication, H.P. Lovecraft and The Lovecraft Circle Books & Autographs was sent out October 21, 1974 to HPL fans and collectors. It lists "Books and Pamphlets, Manuscripts and Letters, Serials and Oddments." This catalog has many of Lovecraft's letters to Clark Ashton Smith. Included is a greeting card printed on heavy textured card stock and signed by Roy A. Squires. Besides the original mailing envelope, we'll include a copy of HPL's portrait by Joe Wehrle, Jr.The greeting card says, "Greetings" on the front and inside it says, "& may you discover in 1975 all that eluded your search this year" and signed, "Roy A. Squires." Here's the last item in the catalog of 160 items:
Pamphlets from my private press. I have begun publication of a new series of Smith's previously unpublished poems. The first of these, The Titans in Tartarus, is now available at $6. Titles of the next two will be A Song from Hell and The Dream God's Realm. The series will continue for at least 6 volumes. And for the record I should say that there is also a special Manuscript Edition, in effect o.p. on publication for all copies are reserved for subscribers.Yet available is Roy Bradbury's That Son of Richard III, ordinary edition, at $7.

The catalog measures almost 9 1/2" by 6" with 20 pages. The card measures 5 3/8" by 4 1/8". The envelope measures 9 1/2" by 6 1/2".
