There is an "Astor" edition of Poe's Poetical Works issued in 1882, but to know more about it, you should precise the eventual imprint (date of copyright), the name of he who signs the memoir (if signed), the number of pages, and, too, if illustrated, with how much plates. In any case, probably the common corpus of Poe's poems as set by Griswold (1850), completed, perhaps, with the Stoddard's (U. S. 1874- 5) and/or Ingram's (British 1875) additions. You may check, for example, if "To Helen" (Helen, thy beauty is to me...), "Alone", "The Valley Nis", and "Spirits of the Dead" be present. So could we certainly tell you more.... Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
