It is green, hardcover with golden figures, edited by "Stone & Kimbal, anno MDCCCXCCVI in Chicago.There are two illustrations : Portrait of Elizabeth Poe and The Allan Mansion at Richmond; this book counts 352. Could someone help me to know some more of this set??

Your odd (early reprint) volume comes from the 10-volumes set of "The Works of E. A. Poe" edited by Stedman and Woodberry in 1894-95. This edition is the first to have been scholarly established (especially for the additional notes at the end of each volume, for the various portraits of Poe as frontispieces, and for the "variorum" corpus of poems in the tenth - and best - one), and to escape from the common posthumous Griswold 1850-56 (+ Ingram 1874-75) texts and introducing memoir. Many reprints until 1914 (NY Scribner), the same plates having been used too by British publishers. The brightest set (with velum richly gilded hard covers, and on large paper) was published (in strongly limited number! and thus very scarce) with an additional port-folio containing four black and white illustrations by A. Beardsley. Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
