It also represents the culmination of Professor Dameron’s tenure as chief compiler of the “Current Poe Bibliography,” a post that will be assumed by Professor Richard Kopley with its next installment in June 1986. Relevant offprints may be sent to Professor Kopley at The Pennsylvania State University, Dubois Campus, College Place, DuBois, PA 15801.
