The book: This scarce and attractive Victorian edition of "The Poetical Works of Edgar Allan Poe" is a remarkable compilation of the esteemed poet's work, complemented by an original memoir. Published around 1867 by Ward, Lock, and Tyler, this volume stands out for its rich collection of illustrations by a distinguished group of artists, including F.R. Pickersgill, John Tenniel, Birket Foster, Felix Darley, Jaspar Cropsey, P. Duggan, Percival Skelton, and A.M. Madot. These illustrations add a visual depth to Poe's hauntingly beautiful poetry, bridging the gap between the poet's lyrical words and the reader's imagination.

The author: Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American writer, editor, and literary critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.


The illustrators:  The collective talent of the illustrators, including the iconic John Tenniel, renowned for his work on Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," and Birket Foster, famous for his countryside landscapes, bring a diverse and rich visual element to Poe's works. Each artist's unique style complements the others, making this edition a visually stunning homage to Poe's genius.
