Gold Bug published by "Platt & Peck Co - New York" - Value? : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I have a very early copy of The Gold Bug, but can't really find any reference for the publisher, also, this is circa lae 1890's, but there is no edition printed in the book. Any direction, any ideas? Thanks, LeAnn

The Gold-Bug was first published in 1843, and Poe was dead by 1850. A book printed over 40 years later could hardly be considered "a very early copy." The value is minimal, regardless of the publisher.
