The Free Library of Philadelphia has a rare books department. Poe’s original, manuscript of Murders in the Rue Morgue, is located there! It was on display last year for about 6 months in a special exhibit. Normally, scholars need to make an appointment to see it!

You know I’m a little jealous, right?
I can’t even imagine what it must be like to walk through the house, much less view original manuscripts. My brain is melting at the very thought.
One day when I’m not up to my eyeballs in work and reports, I’d love to make art inspired by some of my classic favorites. Poe is definitely on the list.
