Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.56: Belated Happy Birthday, Augie Derleth

In belated honour of August Derleth's birthday (yesterday), I present this lovely two volume set of the collected letters of H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth. I love the covers of these; notably, the second volume (on the right here) depicts the house on Lovecraft's beloved Benefit Street which was to become 'The Shunned House'. As noted in an earlier post, I twice stayed in the Coach House Inn opposite this location during previous trips to Providence.
