With autograph note signed by HPL and envelope postmarked Mar. 28, 1934. This story was originally written during March 1927 (HPL to Donald Wandrei, 1927 Mar 27: "I don't know when I'll ever get those novelettes typed (The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward), but I have just written another tale ... called The Colour out of Space"). It was first published in Amazing Stories, 2, No. 6 (Sep 1927). This later typescript (probably done by F. Lee Baldwin) contains minor revisions that do not appear in the 1927 published version. HPL sent it to Baldwin for possible publication sometime in 1934 (see HPL to Robert H. Barlow, 1933 [Oct 21]).
