I wasn't aware of the timeout at the LOC...Thanks for inclusion of the canned search.
I would have to say that it would be the book that includes "Azif" in the title: It's the version that most closely adheres to Lovecraft's
When I first looked up Necronomicon in Wikipedia, it describes the origin & history of the book as if it were the "real McCoy" from Lovecraft's
writings & also its history from the perspective of "real world" use from Lovecraft & other authors who incorporated it within their own stories.
I happen to own H.R. Geiger's version...It's pretty much just a "Necronomicon-like" collection of Geiger's artwork. Visceral & gothic/cyberpunk
Mostly I put this thread over here in BTS, because I know that the LOC tries to keep a copy of every publication known to Man. Finding proof
that the government has the Necronomicon wouldn't be difficult & then just added a "conspiratorial/horror" angle on it.
