Notes:

All material in this edition is protected by copyright, exclusively held by the estate of the authors. Permission has been obtained by the Poe Society of Baltimore from the estate of Thomas Ollive Mabbott to provide this electronic edition for academic and research purposes only. The Poe Society of Baltimore asks all users of this material to respect these copyrights, and not to exceed what would typically be considered as fair use (generally interpreted as selective quotations and/or paraphrasing of only a small percentage of the total material, and with the appropriate attribution and citation).

In the collection of his papers, at the University of Iowa, Mabott prepared a new introduction for this same material, intended for his own edition of Poe’s complete writings. He did not live to finish the volumes of Poe’s criticism and miscellanous matter, and the volume for the Columbia Spy and the Philadelphia Public Ledger was never published. The introduction exists in the form of two drafts, included here with special permission from the University of Iowa, which holds the Mabbott collection of his research notes and materials.
