Notes:

A set of the three volumes of The New Mirror has special interest. It was given by Poe to Sarah H. Whitman (probabably around october 1848), with two items, noted above,  marked "P." These volumes, along with Poe's copy of the Broadway Journal, were given by Mrs. Whitman to John H. Ingram. They were sold as item 600 as part of the library of Thomas Jefferson McKee, on November 22-23, 1900. They are currently in the collections of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California.
