Von Kempelen And His Discovery

Von Kempelen and His Discovery (1849)

Edgar Allan Poe

Another of the author’s reportorial pieces, this one about a man who discovers the fabled philosopher’s stone, allowing him to turn lead into gold. The idea is the story, and as such it won’t likely appeal to modern readers.
