An original manuscript of "Annabel Lee," as well as a facsimile manuscript of "Epimanes," an unpublished tale, by Edgar Allan Poe. Included in the collection is an autograph album belonging to Octavia Walton Le Vert. On May 1, 1827 Poe inscribed "When wit and wine and friends have met..." in the album.
