Tales of mystery and imagination

Tales of mystery and imagination

No family tree updates for a little while, though I'm off to investigate again in case I missed anything before, [[http://www.clarkeology.com/13/2/ one of my great great great grandfathers is there. In the mean time, here's a smashing super rare copy of a book illustrated by Harry Clarke:

Harrap, 1919. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, one of only 170 deluxe copies on handmade paper. Numbered and signed by Harry Clarke. Full vellum binding with gilt lettering and vignette to upper cover. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Poe's magical tales are accompanied by 24 full page black and white illustrations, which are stunning. He uses large areas of black and intricate lines which have a strong effect. A near fine example of this stunning book, many pages unopened. This deluxe edition was originally published at 5 guineas. The Christmas Bookman of 1919 announced the book at the top of their seasonal list of gift books.

That's the wife's relative Harry Clarke.
