Poe Collection Online

September 17th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Poe PortraitThe University of Texas’ Ransom Center has digitized their Edgar Allan Poe collection, including books annotated by the author. The collection was launched to accompany the bicentennial of Poe’s birth.

The digital collection incorporates images of all Poe manuscripts and letters at the Ransom Center with a selection of related archival materials, two books by Poe annotated by the author, sheet music based on his poems, and portraits from the Ransom Center collections. Poe’s manuscripts and letters are linked to transcriptions on the website of the Poe Society of Baltimore.

There’s lots of interesting stuff, including some manuscript pages that would be lovely printed out and framed or used as part of a collage.
