Poe's Tales

1922 edition of 15

In the 1920's Elbert Hubbard II started reprinting editions of a few earlier issued Roycroft books. We know a few of these were made in very limited editions and were bound in 3/4 Levant such as Liberty of Man Woman and Child in 1924. The limited edition above is printed on Japan Vellum, unbound and listed as #1 of 15. The book  measures 7 1/2" x  4 3/4" and has 136 pages. So this poses the question, did any of these ever get bound and sold? So we have another nice item for the avid Roycroft collector to begin searching for!
