Default The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe and...

I also have this Poe book. Has anyone any information?

I am interested in determining the value of a couple old books which are in
very good shape but have limited information on publishing:

1) "The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe", as printed on the back binding,
which has a handwritten note of November 1, 1924 on the inside cover, which I
assume is simply the name and date of the first owner of this particular
book. For reasons I am unaware of there is no publication date or printing
edition. The inside page simply lists: "Midnight Edition" "The Works of Edgar
Allan Poe" "Printed on Nelson's India Paper Complete in One Volume" "New
York" "Plymouth Publishing Company 7 West 42nd Street". After an Introduction
there is an excerpt by Richard Henry Stoddard, a copy of a letter from Poe to
F.W. Thomas, Esq., and a further intro by G. Mercer Adam before the works
begin with "The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfall". Its size is
@6x4x2inches. If anyone has information on this book, please let me know.

2) "The Seven Seas" by Rudyard Kipling. The inside pages indicate a copyright
date of 1896, and another page lists "New York D. Appleton and Company 1899".
There is nothing else that indicates edition or printing. Anyone with
information or possible value, please respond.

I am also interested in finding out if there are recent updated versions of
the following book by Authore Angelis, Elisabetta and Paolo De Angelis
TitleISCHI DI SOGNO: LA COLLEZIONE VOGUE 1946-1947. The current one is
listed as a printing in 1993. It would be appreciated if anyone with
information would email it to me.

Thank you in advance for any assistance with these items.
