[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), "The London Lancet" (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), February 13, 1845, p. 2, col. 4.]


THE LONDON LANCET. -- Those enterprising publishers, Mess. Burgess, Stringer and Townsend, have sent us the second number of their re-publication of the "London Lancet," which they furnish at the exceedingly low price of five dollars per annum. When we consider that each number includes a hundred closely printed large octavo pages, in double columns, we feel warranted, indeed, in speaking of it as something remarkable in the way of cheapness -- even in these days of cheapness of excess. The "London Lancet" as a medical journal of the highest value, needs not a word from us, or from any one, in the way of recommendation.


[This item was very lightly attributed to Poe by W. D. Hull as, "This notice is too undistinctive to furnish grounds for an opinion; it may be Poe's."]
