"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"
