From the library of Larry K. Barnes (1952-2001) with "House of Tzob / 733" (his identifying mark) written in his handwriting over the mutilated bookplate of a previous owner on the front pastedown. Barnes, known as "Kozmo" to his friends, was - with Peter Lavenda and James Wasserman - one of the trio who achieved the publication of the "Necronomicon", with Barnes being largely responsible for the mechanics of the publication of the book and some of the illustrations. Barnes was also an artist, and was fascinated by UFOs and aliens. Cloth at head and tail of spine a little rubbed and chafed, general shelf-wear, edges of text block darkened, remains of book-plate on front pastedown as noted, pages browned. Still a solid G+ copy of an amusing exploration with an interesting provenance (no dust jacket). Item #69577
