DescriptionIt includes an «Introduction» by Thomas Albright – illustrated with a portrait of Poe – twelve short stories and two poems by Poe and all eighty-one black-and-white illustrations by Wilfried Sätty, including a frontispiece. Cover and back cover decorated with the same double-page illustration included in «MS. Found in a Bottle».
«Sätty has worked much as Poe did, following his imagination as far as it took him, but then reconstructing his visions with the utmost discipline, exactness and artistic 'logic'[...]. Sätty has rediscovered the infinitive variety and nuances of humor and feeling in Poe. His selection of stories, as well as his illustrations, reflect this richness and also the open-ended nature of Poe's work, since, of course, the world to which Poe's writing opens a door is one each reader must explore for himself. ultimately himself» (Thomas Albright).
