Scholars and admirers of Edgar Allan Poe may like to know that a classic volume of portaits and daguerreotypes of the author of ‘The Raven’ is now available on-line (free of charge), thanks to the good offices of the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore, at:

One response to this post.

  1. I have a copy of this book, and it’s great–I’m delighted to see it online. (The section dealing with all the many fake Poe portraits that have appeared over the years is particularly fascinating.)
