Median Market Value
Included with all Lettered edition orders is a photogravure of the “Annie” Daguerreotype of Poe, which is limited to 75 hand-pulled prints. Of the edition, 10 are Artist Proofs, and 37 are available for purchase.
The date of the sitting of this daguerreotype was most likely the Summer of 1849, a few months before Poe’s death. Of the two originals, one was given to Poe’s friend Mrs. Annie L. Richmond of Lowell, Massachusetts.
The photogravure, sized at 6⅞” x 8¾” is made by noted printmaker, Jon Goodman at his studio in Florence, Massachusetts. The print has been hand-pulled on Somerset Velvet mouldmade paper and each print is embossed with the printer’s mark. The print is numbered, and where possible we will match the print to numbered designations.
