The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe

This is a fascinating book of poems. It has the complete poems of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) plus some of his critical essays on poetry. This copy is illustrated throughout by W Heath Robinson.

Heath Robinson’s illustrations in this book were commissioned when he was 28 years of age; when he was a young graphic artist. They show his early work before his now famous comic contraptions became a main feature of his work.

The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe was originally published in 1900. This edition was published in 1979 by Bell & Hyman, London. It is a hardback with a dust-wrapper. The spine of the dust-wrapper has faded slightly. The inside pages are clean. The book is in good condition.
