Edgar Allan Poe Digital Collection

Originally created for the 2009 Poe bicentennial exhibition by the Harry Ransom Center (HRC) of the University of Texas, Austin, this Poe collection includes the private collections of William H. Koester and of J. H. Whitty, famed Poe scholar and collector. The site offers all of the images of the HRC's Poe collection, some with transcriptions provided by the Poe Society. Also included are archival materials, including two volumes written and annotated by Poe. The collection includes first editions of all of Poe's books except one, and letters from historic literary figures (e.g., Longfellow, Lowell, Baudelaire, Whitman, Swinburne, Kipling, and Greeley).
