Notes:

These changes by Poe are made in a copy of volume one of his Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, presumably with other manuscript and printed material.

Running vertically along the left side of the page is the direction: “To Printer — In printing the Tales please use the order of the Table of Contents.”

The two tales for which the titles are struck out, “The Pit and the Pendulum” and “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” probably reflect the fact that both had only recently been sold to magazines.
