Two books from Lovecraft’s personal library…

A Book of New England Legends and Folk Lore. An excellent survey and collection of materials. Including a picture of the Pickman-esque “Old Ruin” house at Boston’s North End…


See also “The Place of Noises” (p.427), on the Moodus Noises which have been suggested as one of Lovecraft’s inspirations for “The Whisperer in Darkness”.

By the same author, and also in Lovecraft’s personal library, the fine book Nooks and Corners of the New England coast.
