London: Short & Co., 1846. First Edition. Publisher’s self-wrappers; very minor wear; about a fine copy. The story, better known under the title “The Facts of M. Valdemar’s Case,” was first published in the American Whig Review of December, 1845, in the London Morning Post of January 5, 1846, and did not appear in an American book until its inclusion in the Works (1850). A gruesome story that was widely believed to have been true.
