The set collects all of Poe’s works together with a biographic memoir and six volumes of literary criticism. Editors Edmund Clarence Stedman and George Edward Woodberry were both well-known poets, literary critics, and scholars. Woodberry was also a noted authority on Edgar Allan Poe, and his 1884 biography of the author became the standard text. A very attractive set.
