One of the first (if not the first) illustrations of Cthulhu. Doodled by HP Lovecraft.

Okay, I am TERRIBLE at reading handwriting -- can someone help me out with the caption?

What I'm getting is:

"To R. H. Barlow, Esq., ___ [whose?] Sculpture hath given Incarnatality [Immortality?] to this trivial [____] (looks like Da___) of his oblig'd obdt Servt.

11th May, 1934
H.P. Lovecraft"

Can anyone who is good at antique penmanship give me a translation on this one? It is tantalizingly hard to make out!

Also, wow -- that is SO COOL.
