    Description

    [Edgar Allan Poe]. First Appearance of Edgar Allan Poe In a Literary Magazine - Review of His Poem "Fairy-Land" in The Yankee; and Boston Literary Gazette. Boston: Wells and Lilly, 1829. Volume II, No. 3. Octavo. 55 pages. Printed wrappers. String bound. Covers detached but present. Front cover with loss at the upper right corner. The edges of the pages are tatty but on the whole it is in very good condition. John Neal reviews Poe's poem "Fairy-Land": "E. A. P. of Baltimore -- whose lines about 'Heaven,' though he professes to regard them as altogether superior to anything in the whole range of American poetry, save two or three trifles referred to, are, though nonsense, rather exquisite nonsense - would but do himself justice, might make a beautiful and perhaps magnificent poem. There is a good deal to justify such a hope." An extract of "Fairy-Land" follows.
