the raven and other poems : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I have a question regarding "The Raven and Other Poems" I have book with a soft brown suede leather cover with gold embossing, and has the publisher as "Henry Altemus Company"

Would you happen to know the date of this version? and maybe its value?

Thank you in advance.

"Henry Altemus", of Philadelphia, issued Poe's "Poems" in various presentations as soon as 1895, with the classical 1850-Griswold 41- poems corpus, plus three other ones (omitted by Griswold, but added since 1876), viz. "Alone", "Spirits of the Dead", and "To Helen" ('Helen, thy beauty...'); some reprints more or less "luxuous", with plates. The same editor issued too, at the same period, a selection from Poe's short prose-fictions, labelled "Weird Tales", in "cheap de luxe" form. Not rare. The prices must not excede ca thirty dollars (for the best of them all). Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
