“Account of Charleston, An“
   Essay (20,700 words); probably written in the fall of 1930. First published in MW.
   HPL’s most exhaustive travelogue of Charleston, written in a flawless recreation of eighteenthcentury English. It supplies a comprehensive history of the city from its settlement in 1652 to 1930, followed by a discussion of Charleston architecture and a detailed walking tour. Also included are HPL’s drawings of selected Charleston dwellings and a printed map of Charleston on which HPL has traced his recommended itinerary in red pencil. HPL evidently did not distribute the essay, even among his colleagues (the AMS survives at JHL). In 1936, when H.C.Koenig wished to explore Charleston, HPL condensed and modernized the essay in a letter to Koenig (subsequently revised and published by Koenig as Charleston[1936]; rpt. Marginalia).
