Rare Wandrei Item surfaces

This is the first (and probably only) edition of ECSTASY, by Donald Wandrei, published by the Recluse Press in 1928 in Athol, Massachusetts. This is a collection of 30 poems running 39 pages by Wandrei, the co-founder of Arkham House, and better known for his weird and horror story writing. This is Donald Wandrei first published work. It has its original glassine jacket and inserted in the front is a tag that says it is from the library of Donald Wandrei. This is an interesting historical curio by the creator of Arkham House, a press that has had a major impact in the USA on the availability of many significant works of horror, occult, and science fiction.
