About this Item

Stiff wraps with 26 loose plates (believe as issued. See Brown University's Harris classification system[Z15 E34] which gives a very brief mention of this title) illustrating Poe's stories.With a bound in title page and table of contents pages. Lacking the tie that closes the book. Illustrations include those for The Murder at Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Black Cat and many others, as well as a portrait of Poe. Most appear to be etchings and heliogravures. All 26 are present. The wraps are in FAIR condition with heavy darkening to the covers, moderate soiling, two small dampstains to the center front, minor dampstaining along the lower rear edge, some foxing and other general wear. Corners are bumped and scuffed with the upper front corner creased, the upper rear cover missing a small diagonal portion and the lower corners bumped. The spine is a red cloth binding which is very faded with some staining. The interior is in GOOD+ condition. The title page is very darkened. There are several blank endpapers bound in the rear, the last of which appears to be missing 1 ½ inches the length of its fore edge. The plates themselves are clean and bright with a few that have minor foxing to the extremities. The paper the illustrations are printed on varies from thicker to thinner stock, with the thinner stock being a bit browned. Some illustrations have slightly offset the the blank verso of the previous illustration. Overall, very attractive loose illustrations for Poe's work. in stiff wraps. Photos available upon request.
