    Description

    Maxon's Poe First Edition Hardback Group (Word Play, 1997). Robert Crumb's younger brother Maxon illustrated this slim volume of Edgar Allan Poe stories and poems. Robert adds an introduction, which serves to illustrate the common characteristics of the often difficult and eccentric Poe and Maxon, himself on a bizarre spiritual quest that few can understand. A tough book to come by, all of the signed editions have long since been sold out. Now is your chance to add the stories of Poe and the art of a Crumb brother to your collection! In fact, corner the market on the last few remaining copies! Twenty signed and numbered books comprise this lot, with numbers in the early 200s.
