Here is the first illustration for the first verse of Edgar Allen Poe’s Eldorado.
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.
Dad was asking what ‘bedight’ meant… so for those of you in the same boat.
Bedight: Archaic for adorned or bedecked
Here is a detailed view of page one.
