Lovecraft to C A Smith on Aleister Crowley

About six months ago {Larry Roberts} purchased some 15 or so boxes of old pre 1970 fanzines and some Arkham House books from an estate sale. ... last night at nearly midnight I pulled out an envelope that held a postcard hand written by H. P. Lovecraft to Clark Ashton Smith. What an amazing surprise indeed! For the collector/bookseller/lovecraftian that I am it was the equivalent to hitting a jackpot.


Larry Roberts is publisher of Bloodletting Press, Arcane Wisdom, Miskatonic Books, and several other endeavors.

After posting this, Larry discovered that the letter contained a reference to Crowley. This is arguably the first reference ever to Crowley by Lovecraft that has been uncovered.
