Note: This is NOT a first edition. It is 7th printing (1953). It is a collectible copy because it is accompanied by a signed letter from the illustrator Nicholas Bentley, on his stationary. The letter is dated 1947 and recounts a history of the other works Bentley had illustrated during the prior decade. Fine copy in a very good dust jacket with a 1/2" closed tear at top of back cover, a few small fingerprint smudges on back cover, and a light 1/8"x3/4" stain on the spine.
