Deluxe edition, limited to 250 numbered copies. 125 for distribution in Ireland, 125 for the U.S. Black cloth with gilt decorations in black slipcase. This special edition, signed by Bowe, contains an extra suite of eight plates reproduced from Clarke's original drawings for "The Ancient Mariner." The gilt decoration on the front cover is from a design by Clarke adapted from the binding of the special copies of the 1922 edition of the Fair Tales of Perrault. This special edition rarely comes on the market. Harry Clarke (1889 –1931) was an Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator. Born in Dublin, he was a leading figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement. His color illustrations for Poe's tales and other works are highly prized, but his other graphic work is less known. This comprehensive monograph presents some of his early sketches, private drawings, and commercial work -- with as well as the man behind the drawings and designs.
