Poe 1886

(Continued from Poe 1884) 

LENORE   (1886)

"Illustrated" books for short stories or poems were a big thing in the 1880s.

Another one I found posted online was done for one of Poe's lesser-known poems...



The scans for this were so nice, I knew I had to set up a page for this.  Together with "THE BELLS" (which I actually bought a cheap copy of), this in turn inspired me to do more research and decide to set up MORE such pages, and even look to buy a couple more books.

A very special "THANK YOU!" to "Alexander", at the Book Graphics blog, for posting these wonderful images.
