Antique books Poe 1904 The Works of Edgar Allan Poe 10 miniature volumes all original gilded pages


When I think of Poe, images come to in mind of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead.. He has such a reputation for tales of terror that were easy to read. His dark and haunting lyric poetry will send chills down your spine. 

This set has a rare introduction “The Art and Genius of Edgar Allan Poe” by Edwin Markham. This is a full Antiquarian set of Poe's Works, from the turn of last century.New York & London: Funk & Wagnalls, [Copyrighted 1904.]. THE COMMEMORATIVE EDITION. Bound in blue faux leather bindings.

The books measure 6" tall x 4" wide and are such a wonderful set that I have had a hard time letting them go to sale. But it is time to find a new home where they can be as appreciated as they have been in my home from my personal collection.
