Notes:

This table of contents reflects the edition of 1856. In the original, “Pym” is not divided into sections. These sections are given here to permit a convenient breaking up of a very large block of text. The burning lamp, within a circle formed by a “hoop snake” was a trademark Redfield adopted about 1853. It appears above the publisher’s name on the title page of many of their books. A burning lamp has long been a symbol for bringing knowledge. The significance here of the “hoop snake,” a creature of folklore, is obscure. Usually, the snake faces counter-clockwise and the lamp points to the right. On this one volume, for some reason, the image is inverted.
