About this Item

6 pp. (full issue). Fo. Edgar Allan Poe (1809Ð1849), poet, author (especially of short stories), critic and editor, inventor of the modern mystery story genre, was editor of GrahamÕs Magazine for several years from 1841. He contributed ÒA Descent into the MaelstromÓ to Volume 18, p. 235 ff, in May 1841. Almost immediately, still in May, 1841, it appeared in this weekly newspaper (not noted by Heartman and Canny). Likely a piracy, though with attribution, this printing, complete in itself, must be the second appearance of the story. Very early newspaper reprints of the story are extremely rare. Pages separated at spine. Mild Foxing. Else, Very Good. Heartman & Canny, p. 93 (for first issue). First Edition of the newspaper. Second Appearance of the Poe story, in the same month as its first publication. Unrecorded. Bookseller Inventory # 10516
