FRONTISPIECE

THE WHITMAN DAGUERREOTYPE OF EDGAR ALLAN POE

Reproduced by the courtesy of Special Collections, Brown University Library. According to officials there the daguerreotype was taken November 14, 1848, by Hartshorn, No. 25 Market Street, Providence. It was presented to Mrs. Sarah Helen Whitman by Poe on that date. The enlargement of the 3 1/4” x 2 3/4” original retains the daguerreotype characteristic of being a mirror image of its subject.
