Extensive Online Exhibit of Poe Collection at HRCL, University of Texas at Austin
The Harry Ransom Center of the University of Tezas at Austin holds what is probably the single largest and most significant archive of Poe material in the world. Among many highlights are Poe’s desk from the Southern Literary Messenger, the finest surviving example of Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827), the original manuscrip for “The Domain of Arnheim,” Poe’s own copy of The Raven and Other Poems and Tales (1845) with numerouus handwritten corrections, and dozens of original letters by Poe.

A portrait of Poe noted as “attributed to Rembrandt Peale” is probably not authentic. This portrait, along with quite a few others, sometimes attributed to Peale or to Thomas Sully, may be by Ferdinand Danton, who was active in the 1930s and died about 1939. The Delaware Museum of Art apparently has a file on him, and several examples of his handiwork. He may also have created a fake portrait of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart, a portrait which looks a good deal like the one of Poe.

Online Exhibit of Poe Memorabilia: Susan Jaffe Tane Collection
Cornell University is hosting an online exhibit of an amazing collection of Poe books and manuscripts. It includes first printings of all of the books printed during Poe’s lifetime, with one of only 12 known copies of the 1827 Tamerlane, along with a number of letters and manuscripts of such literary works as “Epimanies,” “Spirits of the Dead,” “To Zante” and several fragments. A printed catalog is also available from Cornell.

Reservations should be noted about two items in the exhibit:
1) A silhouette of Poe, with the initials “EAP.” This item has been questioned by Michael Deas, the recognized authority on Poe iconography.
2) A charchoal portrait supposedly of Poe and Mrs. Allan. The woman in the portrait bears no resemblance to Frances Allan, and the boy is too young to allow for the possibility of the woman being the second Mrs. Allan. More troubling, the clothing suggests a date closer to 1880 than 1820. Charcoal portraits gained great popularity in the latter half of the 19th century.

An intriguing web page that emphasizes, but is not limited to, a popular approach to Poe, including lists of films and comic books based on Poe’s works and numerous commercial offerings from videos to t-shirts. This somewhat eccentric site is maintained by Peter Forrest. It has been around for several years and is deservedly well recognized.
