About this Item

24 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.1in.This early work by Edgar Allan Poe was originally published in 1849. Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1809, Poe became an orphan at a very early age. After being taken in by a couple in Richmond, he spent a brief spell in the United Kingdom before returning to enrol at the University of Virginia. Poe struggled for many years to make a living as a writer and frequently had to move city to stay in employment as a critic. Even for his greatest success, The Raven, he only received 9 and, although becoming a household name, his financial position remained far from stable. Poe died in 1849, aged just 40, yet his legacy is a formidable one: He is seen today as one of the greatest practitioners of Gothic and detective fiction that ever lived, and popular culture is replete with references to him. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About this title

Synopsis:

The narrator-a Mesmer-entrances a sickly patient who claims to be privy to a wealth of divine and esoteric knowledge, wanting to document his knowledge before he dies. The Mesmer proposes a series of questions relating to the workings of the universe, matter, and God. The client realises that he was destined to die during the interview, and seems to do so shortly after its conclusion. A chilling and though-provoking tale, “Mesmeric Revelation” will not disappoint fans of Poe's work, and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing "Mesmeric Revelation” now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
