in books •  28 days ago

You read that right! H.P. Lovecraft's family bible from 1881 is currently up for auction. It was gifted to his mother, with the inscription “Miss S. Susie Phillips. From her Mother. March 22nd, 1889.” It contains his birth record and his parents’ certificate of marriage, along with notes of Sarah and H.P.'s deaths. This is pretty damn cool and it will be interesting to see what it sells for. Here's a picture:
