My dastardly fellow blogger and friend J.D. will be pleased to know that an 1827 volume of Edgar Allen Poe's first book sold for 662,500 dollars last week. A collection of poems that Poe compiled at age 18, it's entitled: "Tamerlane and Other Poems." At the time Poe only published 50 copies. Apparently, there are only 12 first editions left in the big wide world.
