* Edgar Allan Poe's mother & father theater ads
On page 3 under "Boston Theatre" is a listing for a play called "ADRIAN & ORRILA, or, A mother's vengeance", with Mr. Poe as "Adrian" & with Mrs. Poe as "Orrila" (see) This was the mother & father of Edgar Allan Poe, the famous author and poet. Rare to find such ads in period newspapers.
News of the day with other interesting ads. Complete with 4 pages, a little staining, generally very nice.
