Dream Quest 5 April 1948

The seller of this item states:
Dream Quest #5 April 1948 (H.P. Lovecraft / Cthulhu Mythos Fanzine - 36 pages) - Contents in nice shape, Cover shows wear, bound by 5 staples, back cover detatched from top and bottom staple. Cover shows wear, fraying at edges, especially along back spine.chipping along edges of back cover, small tear at top of back cover. Property of Hannes Bok printed on front cover, but no provenance to link it with the Author/Illustrator.

Sadly I haven't been able to find out a great deal of this fanzine. Obviously it's an allusion to The Dreamquest of Unknown Kadeth. This was released in 1948 in book and Arkham Sampler form, but not as early as April to my recollection.

The fact that this may have once belonged to Hannes Bok is intriguing.

In a little more than 10 years after HPL's dath, his legacy is already taking hold.
