According to the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore, there are about twelve copies of Poe's first published works, "Tamerlane and Other Poems" by a Bostonian. Several copies are imperfect and some caution should be exercised regarding numerous facsimiles that have been printed through the years.

The highest price paid for a copy, that I found, was by a private collector and purchased from Sotheby's of New York for $198,000.00 on June 7, 1988. To read more about this little book, you can visit
