This vintage book contains the first volume of the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe. The stories of this volume include: “The Unparalleled Adventures of One Hans Pfaal”, “The Cold-Bug”, “Four Beasts in One – The Homocameleopard”, “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, “The Mystery of Marie Roget”, “The Balloon-Hoax”, and many more. This book constitutes a must have for those with a penchant for the macabre, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Poe’s seminal work. Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. He is famous for his stories of mystery and horror, and was one of the first American short-story writers. He is also considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

Review:

He revolutionized the horror tale, giving it psychological insight and a consistent tone and atmosphere; he invented the modern detective story; he wrote some of the world's best-known lyric poetry and a major novella of the fantastic; he impressed such writers as Baudelaire, Mallarme and Borges. If it's been a while since you read any Edgar A. Poe (he never used "Allan"), you've probably forgotten how terrific he is. And some of his best work is in his lesser-known stories, such as "The Imp of the Perverse" and "A Descent into the Maelstrom." In short, what are you waiting for?

From the Inside Flap:

The collected tales of America's foremost master of mystery and the macabre in one handsome volume - - 67 tales and 30 poems in all. You'll find such classic tales as The Fall of the House of Usher, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Masque of the Red Death, The Pit and the Pendulum and many, many more. What collection would be complete without the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe which includes The Raven, Annabel Lee, A Dream Within a Dream, The Haunted Palace just to name a few of the 30 poems include in this Library of Literary Classics edition. Other titles in this series include: Charlotte & Emily Bronte: The Complete Novels; Charles Dickens: Four Complete Novels; Mark Twain: Selected Works; Jane Austen: The Complete Novels: Lewis Carroll: The Complete, Fully Illustrated Works; and William Shakespeare: The Complete Works. This Library of Literary Classics edition is bound in padded leather with luxurious gold-stamping on the front and spine, satin ribbon marker and gilded edges.
