Five Classics of Horror and the Supernatural of H. P. Lovecraft

Five Classics of Horror and the Supernatural of the Arkham Edition of H. P. Lovecraft. Beagle Books. (1971) All second printings except 'The Case of Charles Dexter Ward' which is a first printing. The other title are: 'The Tomb, 'The Lurking Fear and Other Stories', 'At the Mountains of Madness', and 'The Lurker at the Threshold'. Five books in cardboard slipcase. SLIPCASE: Has new bookseller circular price sticker (perhaps published as the price matches 475 at the end of the number on the spine of the box). Moderate edge and surface wear to the box, a bit heavy on one corner. Box is solid with no tears or separation. BOOKS: None of the books have any crease or folds to either pages or covers, including reading creases to spines. Bindings are tight with some 'snap'. It is possible these books have never been fully opened, let alone read. Some of the cover corner tips have light bits of wear and there is some surface wea to the covers of some books. 'Case Dexter Ward' has some glue to the top of the spine, perhaps from publication. 'The Tomb' and 'Lurking Fear' have some wrinkling to the spine, again possibly from publication. There are no previous owner markings to the interiors of the books. HB05a
