The remaining 14 copies were sent to friends and early science fiction enthusiasts. This sonnet is number XXX (30) in the Fungi from Yuggoth poetry cycle. This is the only issue of The Lovecrafter and was prepared for Lovecraft's forty-sixth birthday (August 20th). The broadside is from 1936. The date on the broadside is in honour of HPL's birthday, not the actual day and month of publication. Of the 14 remaining copies, they are RARE!!! and rarely come on the market, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
