About the Item

Poe, Edgar Allan, The Works of Edgar Allan Poe. New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, The Knickerbocker Press, 1902. Putnam Edition, 6 volume set. Period three-quarter bound Moroccan leather with blue cloth. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Presented is the six volume set of Edgar Allan Poe’s works in the ‘Putnam’ edition. The volumes were bound and printed by G. P. Putnam’s Sons out of New York in 1902. They feature black and white illustrations throughout. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, critic, and short-story writer, famous for his cultivation of mystery and the macabre in fiction. In 1839 he became co-editor of Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazine in Philadelphia, for which he wrote some of his best-known stories of supernatural horror. His Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque appeared later in 1839 (dated 1840). In addition to his stories, Poe continued to write poetry, and his most famous poem, The Raven, brought him national fame when it appeared in 1845. Several of his works, including the poem The Bells, were published posthumously. The complete works of Poe were compiled later, beginning in 1894, when scholars attempted to organize his prose. In 1902, multiple copies were published, including this rare set, which was a successful compilation of Poe’s tales. This scarce six volume set includes famous short stories and poems such as Tell-Tale Heart and The Island of Fey. Condition: This set is presented in its original boards with period three-quarter bound Moroccan leather and blue cloth. The spine features gilt tooling and raised bands. Gilt tooling also borders the calf leather binding. The books have undergone minor repairs and binding has been tightened. The works are in very good condition for age, with minimal staining or foxing. The books are housed in a custom-made, matching blue slipcase with inlay, recess, ribbon, and a photo of the author on the boards.
