Poe 1968, Pt. 34

(Continued from Poe 1968, Pt. 33)

3 HISTOIRES EXTRAORDINAIRES
"LA CHUTE DE LA MAISON USHER"
     (w/ English Translation)

Editions Serg is a publisher in France.  In 1973, they put out a book that had been crerated in 1968, but, apparently, had somehow been sitting around for 5 years.  I decided to "file" it under its creation date, not its publication date.

This is my very 1st book from Switzerland, and although the book itself was created & published in France, I keep referring to it as "the Swiss book".

This amazing book contains heavily-illustrated versions of 3 stories...

"LA SCARABEE D'OR"
"LA CHUTE DE LA MAISON USHER"
"METZENGERSTEIN"

2nd up...

"THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER"

This was the 8th version of this, following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #4 (Dec'44),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #40 (Aug'47),
Register & Tribune's THE SPIRIT (Aug'48),
EC's THE VAULT OF HORROR #13 (Jun-Jul'50),
Prize's BLACK MAGIC #28 (Jan-Feb'54),
EC's TERROR ILLUSTRATED #1 (Nov'Dec'55),  and
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #5 (1967)
     ...the last about a year earlier.

I'm splitting this up into 2 parts, just as I did with the Harley M. Griffiths version.  Due to the nature of this being an "illustrated story", I was able to use the original 1839 Poe text for about 95% of the story.  ENJOY!

Poe 1968, Pt. 33

(Continued from Poe 1968, Pt. 32)

3 HISTOIRES EXTRAORDINAIRES
"LA SCARABEE D'OR"
     (w/ English Translation  /  Conclusion)

Editions Serg is a publisher in France.  In 1973, they put out a book that had been crerated in 1968, but, apparently, had somehow been sitting around for 5 years.  I decided to "file" it under its creation date, not its publication date.

This is my very 1st book from Switzerland, and although the book itself was created & published in France, I keep referring to it as "the Swiss book".

This amazing book contains heavily-illustrated versions of 3 stories...

"LA SCARABEE D'OR"
"LA CHUTE DE LA MAISON USHER"
"METZENGERSTEIN"

1st up...

"THE GOLD BUG"

     This is the 7th version of the story, following...
David C. Cook's SUNDAY PIX #1-14 (May 1-July 31, 1949),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jun'51),
Boy Scouts Of America's BOYS' LIFE (Jul'54),
Empresa Nacional's CAVALEIRO ANDANTE #453 (Sep'60),
Sea/Novaro's TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASICOS #51 (Nov'61),  and
Thorpe & Porter's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jul'62)
     ...the last one some 6 years earlier.

I'm splitting this up into 3 parts, just as I did with the Mick Anglo version.
