Masters of the Weird Tale

Edgar Allan Poe


Perhaps the finest, certainly one of the earliest, writers of classic weird tales, Edgar Allan Poe is sometimes overshadowed by 20th century practitioners. Nevertheless, his handling of psychological depth is unmatched in the field.
       This major collection features all of Poe’s horror, detective, and science fiction, and includes the complete Poe illustrations of Harry Clarke, Fritz Eichenberg, Gustave Doré, Virgil Finlay, Gahan Wilson, and Arthur Rackham, among others, including some new and fine color paintings by Swiss-artist Gwabryel. Bound in three-piece cloth with ribbon marker, translucent overlays, and enclosed in a cloth slipcase.
