Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination; and Poems [First and Second Series bound as one]

London: Clarke, Beeton & Co., [1853]. First edition thus. First series originally published by Henry Vizetelly in 1852, this is the exceptionally rare first edition by Clarke & Beeton, with both volumes issued together (noted by BAL, but never seen). With both printed and engraved title pages to parts one and two, neither dated, and forty-two engravings throughout the work. Publisher's original cloth, in Very Good condition with a small tear at the crown and slight separation at the hinges, but holding firm and unrepaired. The first collected edition of the two series issued in a single volume and the first illustrated edition. BAL never saw a copy, and we could find no institution holding a copy of this edition. BAL 16205, 16207. Very Good (Item #683)
