In good condition here is a pocket-sized vintage hardback collection of Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe. Undated but looks to have been published around the 1920s by George Routledge & Sons, London. The only real condition point to note is some faint ring marks on the front board which can only really be seen by holding the book right up to the light (see final close-up photo).

Contents: Short Biograpy of Poe; The Fall of the House of Usher; Ligeia; The Gold Bug; The Black Cat; The Murders in the Rue Morgue; The Mystery of Marie Roget; The Purloined Letter; The Masque of the Red Death; Ms. Found in a Bottle; A Descent Into the Malestrom; The Pit and the Pendulum; The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. With some mild tanning and spotting to the endpapers and closed outside edges. Over time the book has developed a lean.

Olive-green cloth covered boards have ornate gilt decoration to the spine. Has some very light rubbing to the corner tips and spine ends. As mentioned above there are some faint ring marks to the front.

Your vintage copy of Tales of Mystery and Imagination will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with message to the parcel.

H 15.5 cm x W 11 cm, 354 pages, 0.28 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped and sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
