Poe 1910, Pt. 1

(Continued from Poe 1906) 

THE RAVEN, ANNABEL LEE AND THE BELLS   (1910)

This time I'm taking a look at an "Illustrated" book with 3 of Poe's most famous poems.

First up:

"THE RAVEN"

John Rea Neill is probably best known for illustrating an entire series of OZ books by author Frank L. Baum.  Among his other projects was this book, whose existence I learned of only recently, and which, so far, I've only been able to find a relatively small number of images from.

Neill's art is light, flowery, intricate, and to my eyes, reminds me an awful lot of the work of modern illustrator P. Craig Russell !

Copies of this book are far beyond my budget, so I'm going to have to wait
until either a really cheap copy becomes available (as it did with the 1881
"THE BELLS"), or, for someone else to post hi-res scans of it online.

In the meantime, I'm posting what I have found...

ENJOY!
