Sauk City, Arkham House, 1944. First Edition. First Impression. Association copy with manuscript material. Signature of Margery Lawrence to the front free endpaper. The manuscript material from Wandrei consists of five single-sided typed sheets comprising the introduction to the book, one single-sided typed sheet comprising the copyright page, one single-sided typed sheet comprising an early draft of the copyright page and a typed sheet outlining the pages needing correction. Numerous minor corrections in pencil by Wandrei. Margery Lawrence was also published by Arkham House (Mycroft & Moran) with the book 'Number Seven Queer Street' in 1959, it was first published in the UK by Hale in 1945. Given that this is one of the earlier Arkham's it does seem a nice association as it would've been one of the books from a publisher who would publish her work some fifteen years later. The dust jacket artwork is by the author's brother. The book itself is in very good condition with some bumping to the spine tips and a little rubbing to the lettering on the spine. The jacket has been reinforced internally with brown tape, and has a little wear, though not too bad given the age. The manuscript material is all in decent shape, with a little toning and a few short tears. Cover art by Howard Wandrei [5973, Hyraxia Books].
