The Borzoi Poe has been edited by Arthur Hobson Quinn, outstanding Poe scholar and author of the definitive Poe biography, who supplies an illuminating introduction and helpful explanatory notes. The collation and definition of the texts was done by Edward H. O'Neill, who has contributed valuable bibliographical notes. Illuminating the spirit of the texts, E. McKnight Kauffer has made especially for these volumes 12 full-page color illustrations and 8 line drawings. Here, in definitive text and in a beautiful format designed by W.A.
