The King in Yellow, Robert W. Chambers

First edition, second issue of "one of the most important works of supernatural horror between Edgar Allan Poe and modern horror fiction" (Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction Writers, p. 739). While a subject of some controversy, it is generally agreed that this issue, with the butterfly to the back cover and without the salamander to the front, is the second.

Chicago: F. Tennyson Neely, 1895. Original green buckram boards stamped in brown, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed; pp. [frontispiece + title page], [1-9], 10-316, [2 pages ads]. Boards show light shelfwear and rubbing with bumped corners, a few traces of soiling. Front joint cracked but binding still holding, frontispiece and title page loose, owner's contemporary signature and a closed tear to flyleaf, else internally clean. Protected in a removable archival sleeve. Rare.
