Providence, Rhode Island: H. P. Lovecraft, December 1918 - April 1921 (volume 1, numbers 1-3). Octavo, three issues, self wrappers, stapled. All published. "Another idea Lovecraft put forward to encourage amateur activity was the issuing of cooperative papers -- papers in which a number of individuals would pool their resources, both financial and literary. He attempted to teach by example by participating in such a journal, THE UNITED CO-OPERATIVE, which published three issues: December 1918, June 1919, and April 1921. Lovecraft had contributions in each issue: 'The Simple Spelling Mania' and the poem 'Ambition' [published under his pseudonym "Ward Phillips"] in December 1918; 'The Case for Classicism,' the poem 'John Oldham: A Defence,' and the prose-poem 'Memory' [published under his pen name "Lewis Theobald, Jun."] in June 1919; the collaborative story 'The Crawling Chaos' [with Winifred Virginia Jackson, as by "Elizabeth Berkeley and Lewis Theobald, Jun."] and 'Lucubrations Lovecraftian' in April 1921." - Joshi, H.
