– Illustrated by Arthur Rackham
This collection of Poe’s finest stories comprises all the terrifying and bewildering narratives that typify his work. It contains such well-known tales as: ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’, ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’, ‘The Premature Burial’, and what is perhaps his most enduring work, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’.
The stories in ‘Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination’ are accompanied by a series of dazzling illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration, Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled.
