Dean & Co. 1844] Poe was employed over the years by several magazines in some editorial capacity. As an editor, and sometimes merely as a regular contributor. Poe wrote a great deal of material in the form of literary reviews such as Review of Rufus W. Griswold's The Poets and Poetry of America, Review of [William Gilmore Simms's] Beauchampe, or the Kentucky Tragedy. Review of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales and Review of C[harles]. F[enno] Hoffman's The Vigil of Faith, and Other Poems, all found on pages 298-300 and attributed to [Edgar A. Poe], Table of Contents (genre)and notices, miscellaneous essays, editorial filler and even plate articles. Poe's stories found in these magazines would be considered first appearances of his works. Contained here within are the following titles by Poe: An Appendix of Autographs; A Few Works About Brainard; Life in Death; The Mask of Red Death and To One Departed. Bound in 3/4 black morocco over patterned cloth, raised bands ruled in gilt, lettering gilt, wear to corners and edges, light scattered foxing or staining. This issue of Graham's was Poe's last as editor. All magazines were serialized and first issued in wraps. Owners would have them bound later. To find any of Poe's works in wraps are quite rare. A very nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 021102
