Edgar Allen Poe
Nil sapientiae odiosius acumine nimio.
Paris, just after dark one gusty evening in the autumn of
18-, I was enjoying the twofold luxury of meditation and a
meerschaum, in company with my friend C. Auguste Dupin, in
his little back library, or book-closet, au troisiême,
No. 33, Rue Dunôt, Faubourg St. Germain. For one hour
at least we had maintained a profound silence; while each,
to any casual observer, might have seemed intently and exclusively
occupied with the curling eddies of smoke that oppressed the
atmosphere of the chamber. For myself, however, I was mentally
discussing certain topics which had formed matter for conversation
between us at an earlier period of the evening; I mean the
affair of the Rue Morgue, and the mystery attending the murder
of Marie Rogêt. I looked upon it, therefore, as something
of a coincidence, when the door of our apartment was thrown
open and admitted our old acquaintance, Monsieur G,
the Prefect of the Parisian police.
gave him a hearty welcome; for there was nearly half as much
of the entertaining as of the contemptible about the man,
and we had not seen him for several years. We had been sitting
in the dark, and Dupin now arose for the purpose of lighting
a lamp, but sat down again, without doing so, upon G.s
saying that he had called to consult us, or rather to ask
the opinion of my friend, about some official business which
had occasioned a great deal of trouble.
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
