A good edition of Cthulhu Mythos
I have read the Cthulhu Mythos in french and I want to read it in english (it's better ! )
I search a good edition, but I don't found a book with only Lovecraft short stories...
Can you help me ?

I found this : http://www.amazon.fr/H-P-Lovecraft-T...d_sim_sbs_eb_6
and http://www.amazon.fr/Call-Cthulhu-Ot...+Weird+Stories and the Necronomicon
Which is the best between them ?
The first book of the first link contain the same stories and more stories of Lovecraft, no ?

Yes I would go with the first option.
Neither have The Horror In the Museum, which seems a really hard one to get hold of and is a cracking story, but the first is a decent anthology.

As I recall, "The Horror in the Museum" is one of the pieces HPL revised for someone else (which is to say he probably wrote between 98 and 100% of the thing at the instigation of another writer). These are usually collected separately from his other work, in the same way as the story ideas he left behind which were finally completed by August Derleth are collected separately. Arkham House used to sell a volume just of his revision work.

So the first option is the best option than the necronomicon ?

If you want all of his work, the Barnes and Noble edition is the one to buy. You'll get all of his major fiction ("The Case of Charles Dexter Ward"; "At the Mountains of Madness"; "The Colour Out of Space" and much more) as well as relatively minor works; it should give you a good idea of his progress as a writer.
