Poe 1948, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1948, Pt. 3)

LE AVENTURES DE GORDON PYM
     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation  /  Part 3)

Collection LeRuban Rouge is an imprint of Librairie Arthème Fayard in France.

In 1948, apparently, they published the very first heavily-illustrated story book version of Edgar Allan Poe's only novel...

     "THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM OF NANTUCKET"

After much suspense, things begin to finally turn around for the better. 
Or... DO they?

"HANG ONTO YOUR SEATS!  IT'S GOING TO BE A BUMPY RIDE!"
