About this Item

10 volumes. The Arnheim edition, one of 500 numbered sets signed by the publisher. Numerous illustrations on Japan vellum paper, decorations in text by Frederick Simpson Coburn. 8vo, finely bound in vellum and boards, the backs gilt extra and beautifully designed. A well preserved and handsome set. The spines with some mellowing or aging as is usual, the text-blocks clean and in excellent condition. The bindings strong and tight and clean, the corners sharp and in fine condition. A very scarce set, one of the nicest editions of Poe ever published. The Arnheim Book-Lover's Edition includes very impressive illustrations printed on Japan vellum. Each volume has a decorated titlepage and limitation page printed in black and red. It contains all of the poetry and stories for which the author is so well known, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. Beyond horror, Poe also wrote satires, humor tales, and hoaxes. For comic effect, he used irony and ludicrous extravagance, often in an attempt to liberate the reader from cultural conformity.
