About This Item

( Geo. P. Putman. New York.) - Paris. 1848 (1928). FACSIMILE EDITION. One of 50 copies printed. 12mo. (7.5 x 5.3 inches). [1] - 143pp, plus 16pp publishers advertisements.


Black cloth with blind ruled lines and gilt lettering to the spine. Both boards with triple ruled line borders and decorative circular device to the centre, all in blind. Complete with the facsimile bookplate of noted American book collector Stephen H. Wakeman, the sixth owner, after Poe, of the original book, on the front pastedown endpaper.

A fine copy of this rare facsimile of the Author's own annotated copy of the last work published in Poe's lifetime, and one he considered his finest. This facsimile was created in 1928 while the book was owned by Florence Meyer Blumenthal, the 8th owner of the original annotated book, after Poe himself. "A beautiful and remarkably faithful facsimile of this copy was made in 1928 in Paris, in an edition of 50 copies. It is occasionally mistaken for the original" - Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore.
