About this Item: Wiley and Putnam, New York, 1845. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. First Edition. First ever printing of "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe printed on page 143 under the pseudonym "Quarles", a reference to the English poet Francis Quarles. This pseudonym was in keeping with the American Review s practice of publishing poetry unsigned or under a pen name. Bound here is the entire issue of Volume I, No. II from February, 1845. Set in type from Poe s manuscript, The Raven was first printed in this American Review in January, 1845 (issue dated February, 1845) and struck an immediate chord with the public and was reprinted in magazines and newspapers throughout the country. Poe first brought "The Raven" to Graham's Magazine in Philadelphia who rejected it. He then sold the poem to The American Review which paid him the handsome sum of nine dollars. Navy cloth boards, pebbled leather spine wrap with gilt 1845 at heel, generally moderate wear; exterior spine partially reinforced. Pages generally very good; few w/moderate fox. Antiquarian bookplate inside cover. The American Review was vibrant, comprehensive intellectual and entertainment media, in addition to being a source of opinion and information. It was cultural expression in the largest sense. The American Review contained articles of various lengths and subject matter; true to Whig form, however, the longest articles developed philosophical, religious, and historical themes in detail, or else, provided in-depth biographical information on the leading statesmen of the day. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7 - 9" Tall. Seller Inventory # 019272
