The Illustrations to Tales of Mystery and Imagination, by Edgar Allen Poe, by Harry Clarke, 1919.  Click for full size. The second image is the Finis. This is the end of the black and white illustrations. There are eight colour plates, however I don’t know which stories they belong to, so anyone’s guess.

    Great images and art. Cheers!

    Possibly interesting optical illusion here -- when I first saw this I only saw the top ,what .. third.. quarter maybe of the first image and thought briefly that I was looking at a map with continents and seas and (Schiaperellian?*) canal(i?) featuring before, er, twigging that the dark silhouettes were actually tree branches not symbolic seas. Anyone else get that?
