POE, Edgar Allan. The Poetical Works of Edgar Allen Poe. London: Sampson Low, 1858.

8vo. Green morocco, ruled in blind to upper cover with floral gilt designs to corners and spine panels, title gilt to spine, all edges gilt; pp.xxxii, 248; a little wear to the upper front hinge and some foxing to endpapers, gift inscription to first blank page dated 1864.
A rather luxurious edition of Poe's more macabre poems, published in London some 9 years after his death in 1949. Contains a great many steel engravings at intervals, the best of which accompany The Raven, depicting the unfortunate narrator in varying (and perhaps unintentionally comical) states of mild anxiety. Also contains a short biography of Poe, some fragments of his dramatic works and an essay on the Poetic Principle.
