Birth, development and life of Lovecraft's great myth of horror and esotericism, unveiled and commented on like never before. The history and chronology of the Necronomicon, a cursed book that never existed, which managed to condition contemporary esotericism in a disconcerting way. S. Fusco, probably the best known and most rigorous Lovecraft expert in Italy, follows his traces in Lovecraft's own letters and fiction, also exploring his magical knowledge, a less known part of the endless Lovecraftian culture. The text reveals fragments of a forgotten esoteric knowledge and collects all the related mythical, authentic and apocryphal texts in an authentic Library of Babel. Contains the famous illustrations on Lovecraft's Necronomicon.
