As Volume IX of a ten volume collection by Edgar Allan Poe, this work is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains a collection of his essays on philosophy. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for any fans of American literature. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
