A beautiful edition, illustrated with 24 fine photogravures, presented in a very decorative contemporary half dark red calf with two maroon title labels, gilt raised bands and gilt to spines, marbled boards and end papers; top edges gilt, others rough trimmed. Light rubbing to the spine of a couple of volumes; little foxing to page edges. An attractive set in an old leather binding. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining) Queen's Quorum (their first Cornerstone title), Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction.

Book Description: Tudor, New York, 1954. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket Condition: Dust Jacket. HARRY CLARKE (illustrator). First Tudor Edition. Illustrated by Harry Clarke. Black cloth with a gilt stamped title on the spine, and an illustrated paper label mounted to the front cover. Housed in a box with an illustrated paper label on the front. The box is VG indeed, label rubbed and with a slightly soiled lid split at one corner. The book is a fine, bright copy. The D/W is also in fine condition with just a hint of rubbing and fraying in places with a minuscule chip to the top edge of the rear panel. The Arts and Crafts movement spawned a resurgence of Irish art. Harry Clarke created illustrations for Andersen and Poe from 1913 to late 1919. Clarke's eerie, sometimes gruesome illustrations appear throughout as tipped-in colour plates, in addition to numerous smaller black-and-white decorations that recall Aubrey Beardsley. This collection includes many of the tales that earned Poe his reputation as the master of the short horror story, including The Tell-Tale Heart, the Pit and the Pendulum, The Gold-Bug, The Fall of the House of Usher, the Murders of the Rue Morgue and many more. It is hard to find the book with such a nice D/W and still in the original box. Bookseller Inventory # 355490713560

Book Description: New York: Tudor Publishing Co., 1936., 1936. 4to., pp. 412. With colour frontispiece and 31 plates, of which 7 are coloured, all fine but for a small crease to lower corner of frontispiece. Publisher's black cloth with gilt titles to spine and paper label with illustrated title pasted down to upper. In near fine unfaded dust-wrapper, merely a few signs of minor edgewear. A lovely copy. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining) Queen's Quorum (their first Cornerstone title), Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Peter Haining; Crime Fiction. Listed in 100 Books That Shaped World History [Raftery, 2002]. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [1972].
