- Full Description
This lavish compilation features the best of Poe's verse, including "The Raven," "Annabel Lee," "To Helen," "The Conqueror Worm," and other favorites. The poems are enhanced by 28 color plates and numerous black-and-white images by Edmund Dulac, one of the foremost artists from the Golden Age of Illustration. A Calla Edition, originally published by Hodder and Stoughton, New York and London, 1912. One of Dulac's finest works, with superb fantasy themes perfect for the Poe tales.
"The Bells contains dramatic, powerful, and inspired color plates that, more than any other Dulac-illustrated book, would appeal to anyone interested in fantasy and outré artwork. I know, because this was the very first book illustrated by Edmund Dulac that I was to buy in the deluxe, limited edition, a great many years ago. I still treasure my copy. Dulac perfectly captures the dark depravity of Poe's tales, and this remains my favorite of all of his many wonderful illustrated editions." -Bud.
Wonderful deeply embossed binding that emulates the original edition, right down to the blind-stamping and the cover gilt titles. Also includes the wonderful gold endpapers that were a highlight of the original edition, a repeating bells pattern by Dulac.
