1916 Item On Auction

Recently this was seen at auction:
Description by seller:
"DOWDELL'S BEAR-CAT" - November, 1916
William Dowdell, Editor & Publisher

William Dowdell & Howard Phillips Lovecraft down the road did not see eye-to-eye on many issues, but early on, Dowdell enjoyed HPL's work and enjoyed his personal company as well. Lovecraft-the-poet is present here with the three-page poem "An American to Mother England" listed in Joshi as "I-B-iii-3".

These very early Lovecraft appearances are extremely difficult to locate. This copy was never mailed, hence never folded and never string-tied.
