Poe's Prose Tales

I have a book entitled Poe's Prose Tales that is undated and I was hoping someone could give me an idea as to when it may have been published. It is a small volume with a cover that has a floral background and a vertical gold-embossed band. It begins with an introduction by James Russell Lowell and contains a few of his short stories: "The Fall of the House of Usher," "Ligeia," "The Gold Bug," "The Black Cat," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Mystery of Marie Roget," "The Purloined Letter," "The Masque of the Red Death," "MS Found in a Bottle," "A Descent into the Maelstrom," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar." Any insights into the age of this book would be much appreciated.

Hi, I also have Poe's Prose Tales. The book was published in 1920 and copyrighted in 1901. I don't know why your version doesn't have dates, but that's what it is.
