Notes:

All material in this edition is protected by copyright, exclusively held by the estate of the author. Permission has been obtained by the Poe Society of Baltimore from Pollin’s estate to provide this electronic edition for academic and research purposes only. (Permission to include the essay by Joseph V. Ridgely, reprinted from the original edition, was obtained from him personally.) The Poe Society of Baltimore asks all users of this material to respect these copyrights, and not to exceed what would typically be considered as fair use (generally interpreted as selective quotations and/or paraphrasing of only a small percentage of the total material, and with the appropriate attribution and citation).

Although Poe’s writings are essentially in the public domain, the texts presented here embody often painstaking editorial work by Burton R. Pollin, and that editorial work is protected by copyright. The introductory material, descriptions, annotations, and the apparatus of texts and variants are Pollin’s original work, and are even more clearly subject to copyright.

The text for this electronic version of the book was taken from an original printed form, revised for XHTML/CSS and to follow our own formatting preferences. Pagination of the original edition has been included.

The table of contents is a reasonable representation of the table of contents from the original printing, although the individual entries for “Data and Background” and “Miscellaneous Introductory Material” are collected together as two groups in the original, but are broken out for the current presentation. Individual chapter entries have been added for Pym and “Rodman.” Also, in the original, the Issue number is given as a separate column. In most other respects, it has followed the form of the original, including the positioning of page numbers for the main sections at the far right and for individual items the page number more closely follows the title. The publisher’s logo does not appear on the title page of the original, but has been added for the sake of uniformity with other volumes in the series.
