Book Description George Barrie & Son, Philadelphia. Half-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. Title page continues: "And Twenty Original Etchings, Five Photogravures and a New Etched Portrait". No date - circa 1890-1900. Burton R. Pollin's "Images of Poe's Works" (p.249, #1191) lists the date as 1895. Title page also says "In Seven Volumes", but there is no evidence found here or elsewhere that there ever was, in fact, a seventh book. Probably a printer's error. Pollin calls for only the six volumes. Pollin goes on to state, "These plates, all from the 1884 Quantin French volumes, may have been Harrison's main source for most of his pictures in the 1902 edition and are therefore doubly important."
