"At various times writers have attributed the authorship of this amusing satire to Poe. After careful investigation they [i.e. Heartman and Rede] state emphatically and go positively on record that Edgar Allan Poe had nothing to do with this [item]" -- cf. Heartman, C.F. & Rede, K., A census of first editions and source materials by Edgar Allan Poe. v.1.
"By Albert A. Wilmer." Halkett and Laing. Dict. of anon. and pseudon. Eng. lit. New and enl. ed., 1932 ; also Cushing, Initials and pseudonyms. 2d ser., 1888. Probably a misprint for "Lambert A. Wilmer", whose authorship "Quarles" attempts to disprove in the Introductory argument. Cushing thinks that Quarles "is not probably Mr. Poe, but assumes his pseudonym to confuse matters".
