Th Q +' A PARTY OF NEWSPAPER MEN, meeting in the rare in-between hours that sometimes
•^ & - come into the life- of a- newspaper man, were talking of the extraordinary success of some of
Ol Si the medium writers of fiction, when the question arose as to who in the ; last century.- was the
NJ^vxrcn^ r*^f A/I €& ffi greatest writer of them all. .The name of Edgar Allan Poe was unanimously, • selected, . not only.
I as the peer of his contemporaries., but the prince of short story wjiters of all time.
Poe was one of the few writers of the very first rankthat America has produced. His genius, in its own field, is unrival
led and unapproached. He created a school of fiction and poetry that has had many imitators, but none that even the most ful
some courtesy can compare with him in depth of feeling, in effective style, and in his weird and mystic trend of thought. He is one
of the MOST INTERESTING OF WRITERS, for he had the knack , or genius, of writing stories of such power that the aver
age reader cannot lay one of them aside, after he has once started, until he has read to the end. No collection of books owned by
an American IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A SET OF POE, for not only does his transcendent genius justify his place in any
library, but as his is one of the three or four great names that have made , American literature known in every Jand of culture, to
read his works should.be an act of duty somewhat akin to patriotism. Poe 'was the inventor of a school of fiction — startling and
weird. His tales of mystery, imagination, and humor are the greatest ever written. ,Poe*s works have met with universal popular
ity, not only with the English-speaking peoples of the world, but by foreign, and his wonderful tales have been translated into ,
many languages.
Poe was a born newspaper man, and it was at once decided to arrange for a large memorial edition of his works. A unique
set to be made to order after newspaper men's ideas, for the thousands of readers of a series of leading daily -newspapers. There
was absolutely no element of risk at this time of an extraordinary Poe revival, when great publishing houses were making special
editions as high as, $250 a set of 10 volumes. By making allotments. to. all the large cities and one large daily paper giving unusual
publicity to the offer, it was comparatively .easy to arrange for .. -

A style was decided upon that was dainty and unique, and an order was given for the making of new plates. The RICH
MOND DISPATCH gladly accepted the appointment to act as the medium of publicity for Richmond, and to make the distribu
tion, feeling that it would be giving its thousands of readers a rare bargain in the works of an American classic author that should
certainly find a place in every home library, more especially at the newspaper price.
The ten volumes will be ready on the dates given in the calendar, and will be supplied to holders IPINI C±
I of vouchers only..' i * &&s.%*{
each witli one voucher. See instructions to city and out-of-town, readers below. . /
HIS FAMOUS WORKS, now published for the first time at a popular price; will be known for all time as the RICHMOND
EDITION. Mr. William PL Rogers, an earnest student of Poe, consented to writea memoir for the first volume, and it is without
question the first really unbiased memoir of the great author. First editions of Poe's works are held at fabulous prices! - A copy
of "TAMERLANE" recently sold for $2,400. It is published in Volume 10 of this new RICHMOND EDITION for the little
price of ten and twenty cents. . -
THIS DELIGHTFUL SET OF HIS WORKS is printed from new type-set plates, made especially for this edition. The
size of type is long primer, which is easy reading and restful to the eyes. The paper is splendid, made to order for this edition. The
paper-covered edition is good for ordinary use, but the cloth-bound edition is illustrated and recommended for permanent and libra
ry use. THE RICHMOND EDITIONis ideal and a marvel of fine book-making at the. price — a price which touches the pocket
very lightly. j
