About This Item

Chicago: Nelson-Hall, 1980. 163pgs. Very Good hardcover in Very Good jacket. Clean and unmarked but for a small faint shadow from a former sticker on front endpaper. Binding tight, light wear to bottom edge of spine. Jacket has slight darkening to paper of spine, no chips or tears. Following the text is a very readable and intriguing notes and sources section. Evidence is presented that Poe indeed fatheredf an ill-fated child with Fanny Oagood while he was married to the ailing Virginia Clemm and she to Sam Osgood, inspiring the poem Ulalume. Sections: Prologue: Region of Sighs, Region of Weir, Epilogue, Appendix A: The Oil Portrait of Poe by S.S. Osgood, Appendix B: "Lulin, or The Diamond Fay" by Frances S. Osgood, Notes, Bibliography, Index. ISBN 0882296833. #2526.. First Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo, 8.5 x 5.75 Inches.
