The Grolier Club’s exhibition “Evermore: The Persistence of Poe” is devoted to one of the most influential authors of the nineteenth century, Edgar Allan Poe. On view from September 17 through November 22, “Evermore” showcases a wide array of materials drawn from Grolier member Susan Jaffe Tane’s personal collection, widely recognized as the finest Poe collection in private hands.
Co-curated by Ms. Tane and bibliographer and scholar Gabriel Mckee, “Evermore: The Persistence of Poe” presents an in-depth look at Poe’s life, his world, and his influence into the present day, with original manuscripts and letters by Poe, daguerreotypes, artifacts, first edition books, and unique material related to Poe’s family and friends. Also on display are a number of items that show Poe’s influence on American and world culture after his death, including artwork, comic books, movie posters, sound recordings, and toys.
