About this Item

LIMITED SIGNED FIRST EDITION, one of 460 numbered copies SIGNED BY ARTHUR RACKHAM. With 12 very impressive colourplates, each with a captioned guard, pictorial titlepage printed in black and green and 17 full-page line drawings and several drawings within the text all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a publisher’s De Luxe issue binding of white parchment, lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover with delightfully ghoulish Rackham designs, and with striking back and white skeletal endpapers, t.e.g.,others untrimmed in the RARE ORIGINAL SLIPCASE with printed label. 318 pp. A very fine and a very bright copy, the book pristine and very beautiful, the slipcase only with toning and wear but complete and present which is quite rare. AN OUTSTANDING COPY OF THIS LIMITED DE LUXE SIGNED FIRST EDITION WITH ARTHUR RACKHAM'S VERY IMPRESSIVE ILLUSTRATIONS. There are twenty-five tales including "The Pit and the Pendulum", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Fall of the House of Usher", and "The Descent into the Maelstrom." The superb drawings evoke the dense spiritual qualities reflected within Poe's exquisite and impassioned writing. A wonderful marriage of artist and writer: Rackham’s illustrations, both horrific and fanciful, bring Poe’s imagination to life, the artist said in illustrating this book that he was beginning to frighten himself. One of our favorite illustrated books. Bookseller Inventory # 27252
