About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for POE’S TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION by [Rackham, Illus] Poe Edgar Allan.

Description:

The first edition with Rackham’s illustrations. With 12 very impressive colourplates, each with a captioned guard, pictorial titlepage printed in black and green and 17 full-page line drawings by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a publisher’s black cloth, lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover with delightfully ghoulish Rackham designs, black and white skeletal endpapers, top edge dyed black, in the SCARCE original dustjacket pictorially decorated in black, white, gray and orange. 318 pp. A very fine copy, and a very bright copy, the jacket in a beautiful state of preservation, trivial spotting to the white paper of the jacket flaps and fore-edge. AN OUTSTANDING COPY OF THIS FIRST EDITION WITH 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 #
