Lovecraft in French (Oct 1956)

Lovecraft in 1956 - barely 20 years deceased, and HPL has crossed the Atlantic in a nice series of books.

...for auction is a copy of H.P. Lovecraft's "Par dela le mur du sommeil" (Beyond the Wall of Sleep") published in France in Oct. 1956. This is the fourth French Lovecraft collection published. It has five stories including, "The Rats in the Walls" and "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward". This is listed in Joshi as 'II-A-4-a' (pg.198) This is #16 from the publishing house "Editions Denoel". The other 15 titles are listed on the inside back wrapper flap. Condition is a solid 'VG'. The paper has browned, as usual, with these but the binding is still square and there is a little dust soiling to the white wrapper covers. This is a unread copy due to the fact the pages are not separated. A fault of the bindery. A novelty for the Lovecraft completest, not a reading copy.
