Moon Pool by A.A. Merritt Lost World Novel Very Rare Dust Jacket Version 1930's.
Very rare book in extremely rare dust jacket. This copy was my "filler" copy for 10 years before I found a better condition copy in this very rare dust jacket. Almost every copy I have come across of this version is from a lending library, as is the case here. Typical markings as such. The book is from a lending library and there was at one time a old demco protector on this that required the jacket to be slightly cut so about 1/4" or so is missing from the top or bottom of the jacket panel. Nonetheless, it shows well. The very creepy jacket art is fantastic. A great read too!

The Moon Pool is a fantasy novel by Abraham Merritt (1884–1943). It originally appeared as two short stories in All-Story Weekly : "The Moon Pool" (1918) and its sequel, "Conquest of the Moon Pool" (1919). These were then reworked into a novel released in 1919. The protagonist, Dr. Goodwin, would later appear in Merritt's second novel The Metal Monster (1920). Although Merritt did not invent the " lost world " novel—he followed in the footsteps of Bulwer-Lytton , Conan Doyle , Burroughs , and others—this work extended the tradition.
