"History of the Necronomicon" is a short text written by H. P. Lovecraft in 1927, and published in 1938. It describes the fictional book the occult grimoire Necronomicon, a now-famous element used in several of his stories. It purports to be non-fiction, adding to the appearance of 'pseudo-authenticity' which Lovecraft valued in building his Cthulhu Mythos oeuvre.
