Overview

American poet, fiction writer, and literary critic EDGAR ALLAN POE (1809-1849) pioneered the short story, popularized romantic Gothic fiction in the United States in the 19th century, and almost single-handedly invented the genre of detective fiction. Appreciating Poe's work is essential to any understanding of American literature.

Here, in 10 volumes, is the complete oeuvre of this American original. Available again in Cosimo's beautiful replica of the 1902 edition, finely illustrated by Canadian artist FREDERICK SIMPSON COBURN (1871-1960), and edited and with a critical introduction by American literary historian and journalist CHARLES F. RICHARDSON (1851-1913), this is a collection readers will treasure.

Volume X: Miscellany features:

• "Maelzel's Chess-Player"
• "Philosophy of Furniture"
• "Cryptography"
• "Anastatic Printing"
• "Eureka-An Essay on the Material and Spiritual Universe"
• and more.

This volume also includes the title index for the entire 10-volume series.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.
