Transcriber’s Notes: 

In the List of Illustrations I restored a missing single quote after “Lenore!”: 
  “‘Wretch,’ I cried, ’thy God hath lent thee—­by these angels he hath sent thee
  Respite—­respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!’”

The List of Illustrations uses ‘visitor’ where the poem and the actual illustration use ‘visiter’.
