DescriptionIt contains: Vol. I: poems and essays on poetic art; Vols. II-VI: tales; Vols. VII-IX: criticism; and Vol. X: miscellanea.
In volume I, a "Critical Introduction" by Charles F. Richardson.
It includes a portrait of Poe etched by Thomas Johnson after a daguerreotype; the portraits of John Jacob Astor, Thomas Babington Macaulay, Henry W. Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne, J. Fenimore Cooper, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning, Lord Tennyson, Nathaniel P. Willis, William Cullen Bryant, Fitz-Greene Halleck, George Palmer Putnam, James Russell Lowell (after a painting by W. Page), Bayard Taylor, Thomas Carlyle, Thomas Campbell, Dr. Johnson, Samuel Coleridge, Thomas Hood, Thomas Moore, Washington Irving, Edward Everett, William Ellery Channing, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Ralph Waldo Emerson; and views of Poe's cottage in Fordham and Mrs. Clemm's house on Carmine St. It also includes seventy-two illustrations (full-page photogravures) by Frederick Simpson Coburn, plus numerous woodcut headings and colophons -some merely ornamental and repeated–. The design of the illustrated title page in two inks (black and red) belongs to Andrew Kay Womrath.
The publishing house Putnam's Sons exploited the benefits of Poe's work to the maximum with Coburn's illustrations, publishing the same material in different formats, quality of paper, states of the plates, print runs, etc. Thus, numerous editions of the complete works in ten volumes would emerge that were offered to the public as collector's items with greater or lesser luxury. The most sumptuous was the “Tamerlane” Edition, limited to 300 copies printed on Ruisdael handmade paper and plates in two states; The “Connoisseur’s Eldorado” Edition had 50 copies signed by the editor; the “Connoisseur’s Arnheim” Edition with 200; and the “Book-Lover’s Eldorado” Edition reached 1050 copies.
This issue, copy no. 203, corresponds to “The Book-Lover’s Arnheim Edition” with a circulation of 500 signed and numbered copies. All volumes bound in quarter leather hardcover binding with a waxed cloth dust jacket and an ex-libris design.
