London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1912]. Large 4to, unpaginated. 28 mounted color plates, with titled tissue guards. 10 sepia head-pieces and portrait of Poe on the title-page. Original black cloth lettered in gilt, cloth lightly edgeworn, front hinge cracked, signature on the half title, plates fine and bright. Hughey 29: “Dulac’s pictures for The Bells were more uniform in mood and style than groupings for almost any other book of his to this time. Although water colors, they are overstreaked with gilt in some cases, crayon in others, to produce rich haunting effects. Deep shades of blue and a special deep pink-rust predominate throughout... Not to be overlooked here are the sophisticated ink drawings Dulac made for headpieces. Although many of the books he illustrated had small ink decorations throughout…he had not worked in this medium so fluently since the days of doing illustrations for The Pall Mall magazine (1906-1908)”.
