The Best American Humorous Short Stories by Edgar Allan Poe, Various Authors, Mark Twain, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. & Alexander Jessup Book Summary

Given readers’ enthusiasm for Twain’s humor, Poe’s versatility, Harte’s Westerns, and Holmes’s literary genius, it’s no surprise that someone would put their works together.
