Description

Poems by Edgar A. Poe

“Once upon a midnight dreary” begins The Raven, setting the mood for one of the most recognizable poems written in English. Edgar Allan Poe’s spooky raven enters the narrator’s house, perches on a bust above his chamber door, and repeats only one word, “nevermore.” The narrator soon learns the raven has come to stay and that he’ll never be free of longing for his lost love, Lenore.

The Raven, one of numerous Poe poems to appear in this copy, was written by a man who’d lost many loved ones, and was soon expecting to lose one more. When Poe was writing The Raven, his wife, Virginia, was deathly ill, suffering from tuberculosis. It was a weird marriage—Virginia was Poe’s first cousin and only 13 years old when they married—but there’s no doubt that Poe loved her deeply. Having lost his mother, brother, and foster mother to tuberculosis, he knew the toll the disease would take.

Wrapped in suede, this unique book is printed on Kelmscott paper, numbers 54 pages. As shown in pictures that accompany this listing, the frontispiece portrait of Edgar Allan Poe is on vellum. The introduction is written by Michael Monahan, Samuel Warner designed the title page and interesting typography was done by Andrew Andrews.

The binding on this book remains strong; however the suede against paper binding shows wear. Published in 1901 by Elbert Hubbard by the Roycrofters at the Shop in East Aurora, NY.

This book measures 9 x 5 3/4"
