Manuscripts and Authorized Printings:

  • Text-01 — “The Colloquy of Monos and Una” — about May 1841, no original manuscript or fragments are known to exist (but this version is presumably recorded in Text-02)
  • Text-02 — “The Colloquy of Monos and Una” — August 1841 — Graham’s — (Mabbott text A)
  • Text-03 — “The Colloquy of Monos and Una” — 1842 — TGAPP (manuscript of title only) — (The tale is listed in Poe’s handwritten table of contents, but the text itself no longer survives. It was probably a modified version of the printed text from Graham’s Magazine, and is presumably recorded, with perhaps a few additional changes made in proof, in Text-04)
  • Text-04 — “The Colloquy of Monos and Una” — 1845 — TALES — (Mabbott text B)  (This is Mabbott’s copy-text)  (For Griswold’s 1850 reprinting of this text, see the entry below, under reprints.)
