Edgar Allen Poe and Harry Clarke

My Edgar Allen Poe book arrived today. I ordered it to get some close-up views of Harry Clarke's wonderful black and white illustrations. (I'm not normally into Poe or macabre illustrations, although I think Edward Gorey is a genius) The book did not disappoint. I am thrilled with the illustrations. It's called Edgar Allen Poe Tales of Mystery and Imagination. There are a few versions, so if you're interested, make sure you get the one with the 24 plates.

I bought a version of this same text which has color prints as well and is one of an edition of 2,300 by Scribners. Do you know anything about this edition?

I don't know anything about it, but I love the one I got in black and white. Let me know what you think about the one you get in color. I'd love to hear about it.
