May 14, 1807

BOSTON GAZETTE, May 14, 1807 

* Edgar Allan Poe's father theater ad

A curious literary item here as the top of page 3 has an advertisement for the "Boston Theatre" with the performance of: "CURFEW: or, The Danish Bandit", a theatrical performance, with one of the principal characters being "Mr. Poe" as "Bertrand". He was the father of Edgar Allan Poe.
Four pages, very nice condition.
