The now very collectable book Dreams and Fancies (Arkham House, 1962) opens with the title section, consisting of Derleth’s pick of…

Fifty-nine pages of Lovecraft’s letters describing his dreams.

I was interested to learn about this. Since I have the H.P. Lovecraft Dream Book from 1994, but on flicking through it I see it only ran to 35 pages of actual dreams.

Whence came the additional pages? Was Derleth perhaps including dream-fragments such as “The Book”, which would make this Dreams and Fancies section longer? But that can’t be the case with “The Evil Clergyman”, at least, since an eBay picture shows that fragment appearing later in the book.
