Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Evert A. Duyckinck — January 8, 1846 (LTR-223)


Jan 8. 46

Dear Mr Duyckinck,

For “particular reasons” I am anxious to have another volume of my Tales published before the 1rst of March. Do you not think it possible to accomplish it for me? Would not Mr. Wiley give me, say $50, in full for the copyright of the collection I now send. It is a far better one than the first — containing, for instance, “Ligeia”, which is undoubtedly the best story I have written — besides “Sheherazade’’, “The Spectacles”, “Tarr and Fether,” etc.

May I beg of you to give me an early answer, by note, addressed 85 Amity St.

Truly yours
Edgar A Poe

E. A. Duyckinck Esqr
