Rackham

"According to Rackham, the illustrations he provided for Poe's

Tales of Mystery and Imagination
, in 1935, frightened even

him, and whilst this might only be expected when a fine

illustrator meets a fine and frightening text. The best plates are

indicative of a grandeur and vision one might not so far have

perceived in Rackham. Perhaps not a book or set of illustrations

for a night's reading in bed, alone" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham,

pp. 163-164).



Latimore and Haskell, pp. 73. Riall, p. 189.
