Edgar Allan Poe: Memoirs and Tales
Volume one of four, including The Fall of the House of Usher and The Goldbug
Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine and gilt decoration to upper board. 19.5 × 12.5cm, 513pp.
The first volume of a four volume set, this one containing a memoir of Poe and a good selection of tales, including The Goldbug, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Fall of the House of Usher.
A good reading copy. The boards and cloth are rubbed and bumped. The inner binding is a little pulled in places and the frontispiece portrait is becoming detached. This has also ghosted onto the title page.
