The Bells, and Other Poems.

Dulac, Edmund (illus.)

London: Hodder and Stoughton, (1912). Quarto. (184)pp. One of 750 copies numbered and signed by Dulac. Illustrated with twenty-eight tipped-in color plates, as well as several headpieces printed in black & yellow, depicting beautifully chilling scenes from Poe's Gothic poems. In his biography of Dulac, Colin White describes the artist's interpretation as "a moonlit world of tired, washed-out blues and greys" where "heads float in space, women swoon, sleep or die, men sunk in despair, contemplate the Infinite." Bound in full vellum, which has been elaborately gilt-stamped with a pattern of bells designed by Dulac. Missing ribbon ties, endpapers lightly toned, half-inch tear to edge of title page, else a near fine copy. T.e.g. Item #30626

(Hughey, 29; White, p. 54).
