The Ten Great Mysteries are :

Ten Great Mysteries : The Murders in the Rue Morgue - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : The Purloined Letter - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : The Tell-Tale Heart - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : The Pit and the Pendulum - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : A Descent Into the Maelstrom - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : A Tale of the Ragged Mountains - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : The Black Cat - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : Thou Art the Man - Edgar Allan Poe
Ten Great Mysteries : Metzengerstein - Edgar Allan Poe


In other words, a fine collection, leading off with an all time classic. However, they are burdened with some generally bad to terrible story introductions by Groff Conklin, although the first one is ok.
