Philadelphia: Louis A. Godey, Publishers' Hall, 1849. Hardcover. Includes the first printing of “Mellonta Tauta" on pages 133-138 of Volume 38. On pages 417 - 419 of Volume 39 there is a letter and poem ("The Lady Hubbard") attributed to Poe; however, these were written as a hoax and neither is actually by Poe. Includes all 12 issues from 1849. Both volumes are bound together. Lacks both boards and spine; however, textblock remains bound. With 40+ plates, some fashion. Occasional spots of foxing and spots of soiling, but clean overall. Chipping and short tears to edges of multiple pages. Volume 38 is 440 pages; Volume 39 is 466 pages (missing 4 pages and rear endpaper). PER/010818. Very Good.
