Collections of Poe's Editorial Miscellanea
Poe's editorial material has received much less attention than his poetry
and fiction. No comprehensive collection has been printed, although the
continuing series edited by Dr. Burton Pollin hopes to correct this oversight.
Many collections erroneously include material that is not by Poe.
