It contains sixteen color plates with paintings by Alberto Martini (not related to Poe) and 104 black and white drawings referring to Poe’s work, including a self-portrait and two frontispieces: one allegorical with a portrait of Poe and another on “Eleonora,“ “Ligeia“ and “Morella”. The illustration relating to “The Fairy Island” is duplicated on the cover.
