POE, Edgar Allan. The Poems. London: George Bell & Sons, 1901.

8vo., green cloth decorated in shades of green and gilt, with an apple tree design to upper cover and matching spine lettered in gilt; device printed to lower board; upper edge gilt, else untrimmed; with decorative printed endpapers; pp. [vi], vii-xxxv, [v], 225, [iii]; with numerous illustrations by Heath Robinson; covers slightly soiled, spine a little browned; with some sporadic spotting, particularly to title and prelims; still a very good example of an attractive work.
First reprint after the 1900 edition, with an introduction by H. Noel Williams.
A charming reprint of this collection of poems from the Endymion series, containing the poems The Raven and Annabel Lee. With beautifully dynamic and aesthetic art nouveau illustrations in black and white by W. Heath Robinson, including full-page, decorative titles and head and tail pieces.
A wonderful example of turn-of-the-century design.
