1934 HPL Post Card at Auction

This just in (and I will keep it pinned o the top of the page for a while, too)
Hey Chris,

We have another Lovecraft but this one should go much cheaper.


ALS signed “H. P.,” on the correspondence side of a 3.5 x 5.5 picture postcard of the Providence County Court House, no date, but postmarked August 4, 1934. Postcard to Howard Wandrei in New York.

In full: “Hail Spawner of Daemons! Am harboring a guest of honor whom I believe you are not unacquainted. Have just produced an ice-cream famine at Maxfields & a general famine at Jakes (has Donald told you about these centers of…) & now absorbing scenic impressions. Now by the shore at Buttonwoods. Hope you’ll get over to these parts before you flash away towards the sunset!” Also signed at the conclusion, “Greetings out of the dark from the unknown, but not malefic. James Morton.” In fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RRAuction COA.
