* Edgar Allan Poe's mother theater ad

A curious literary item here as the top of page 3 has an advertisement for the "Boston Theatre" for the performance of: "HIGHLAND REEL", a theatrical performance, with one of the principal characters being "Mrs. Poe" as Maggy. (see image) She was the mother of Edgar Allan Poe.
News of the day and other interesting advertisements. Four pages, nice condition.
