Greetings to All Lovecraftians,

This is so good, I just had to share it!

I initially learned about this on Twitter yesterday, and I just had to share what I’ve seen and learned since then.

The Brown Digital Repository of Brown University in Providence, now has H. P. Lovecraft’s entire manuscript for The Case of Charles Dexter Ward scanned and on display for everyone to be able to enjoy.

From the main page, the manuscript can be viewed in a window that shows about one-and-a-half pages at a time, and the window can easily be scrolled using the scroll bar below it; and if you scroll down the entire web page, you’ll find a “Portfolio View” mode, with three images (pages) on display at a time, or it can be viewed in a “Book View” mode, where you can see the pages turning. And any page image may be downloaded from these display modes.

And if you scroll even farther down the main web page, you also have an option to jump directly to any page individually, where you can zoom-in to an extremely detailed level.

These scans include Lovecraft’s hand-written pages, as well as the backs of every sheet of paper; so you see exactly what he was writing on, and what was originally written on the paper.

There are 296 image scans here that will keep you fascinated for a very long time.

Please let me know what you discover within the manuscript that you hadn’t known before!
