Book Description: Philadelphia: Ferguson Bros & Co., Printers, [1888], 1888. 3 works bound and published as one, one volume. Publisher's olive cloth, titles gilt to spine, top edge gilt. Pencil annotations throughout, and rear endpapers profusely annotated. Ends and corners rubbed, some minor marks and scratches to cloth, rear hinge cracking, front hinge discreetly repaired; good condition overall. Portrait title page and 4 portrait plates, also photographically-illustrated (later) biographical paper clipping pasted down to front free endpaper. First edition thus, limited edition signed by Whitman on the half title, number 521 of 600 copies (limitation added in manuscript by Horace Traubel to verso of "Note at Beginning" leaf), this copy with a facsimile of Whitman's famous first letter to Anne Gilchrist. This edition, Whitman's second attempt at collecting his poetical and prose works (after the 1876 Centennial Edition with Leaves of Grass and Two Rivulets), was "handled" and put together by Whitman himself in 1888-9, and is made up of three works (Leaves of Grass, Specimen Days & Collect, and November Boughs, copyright 1881, 1882 and 1888 respectively). It is also illustrated with portraits individually selected by Whitman. A single "Note at End" leaf provides Whitman's printed envoi to the reader, dated Nov 13 1888, and ending, "I have put my name with pen-and-ink with my own hand in the present volume. And from engraved or photo'd portraits taken from life, I have selected some, of different stages, which please me best, (or at any rate displease me least,) and bequeath them at a venture to you, reader, with my love." For Whitman, this edition, put together as his conclusive testament four years before his death, was a thoroughly personal project, with the signature and illustrations providing "all the guarantees of my personality" (Horace Traubel's diary 8 Jan 1889) going "straight from my hands into the hands of the reader; from my heart to your heart" (ibid. 20 Jan 1889). The facsimile letter from Walt Whitman to Anne Gilchrist (the English author of "A Woman's Estimate of Walt Whitman", 1870, one of the important first pieces of literary praise Whitman received), dated November 3 1871, the first in their famous exchange (the original draft of which is in the Library of Congress), in which he responded to her deranged offers of marriage with a profession of a literary, non-sexual love through his book ("My book is my best letter, my response, my truest explanation of all. In it I have put my body + spirit."), is thoroughly expressive of the extent to which Whitman's works communicated themselves in such a personal, and indeed at times amorous, manner to his readers. This copy bears a torn out sip at the rear with the note, in manuscript: "Private and Personal. Bound - 24/10/13. Stephen Ower, 11 Craigie Terrace, Dundee". The "C" binding on this copy, as Myerson notes, is the one found on the English issue copies which were sent to England in unbound sheets in late 1889, and then bound on order. Though clearly thus a remainder copy, in a late issue publisher's binding, bound and sent to this Mr Ower, the English issue is nonetheless appropriate by being presented in tandem with this facsimile letter to the woman who started as one of Whitman's first and most significant English literary admirers, and became one of his dearest friends. This copy also bears the illustrated bookplate of James C. Thomson, one of Whitman's 20th century biographers, incorporating a quotation from Whitman. Myerson A2.7.m. Bookseller Inventory # 87503

Book Description: Philadelphia. Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, ., 1866. Disbound. First Edition. 12mo. 39 pp. + 1 p. letter. 12mo. James Aitken Meigs (1829Ð79) was a distinguished Philadelphia physician, professor at several Philadelphia medical colleges, a physiologist and physical anthropologist. While he engaged in medical practice, especially during the Civil War, he has an extensive research bibliography, chiefly devoted to ethnological and craniological subjects. According to the above referenced paper, the pioneer in physical anthropology in America was Dr. Samuel G. Morton, whose most important work was published in 1839 as Crania Americana, a comparative study of Native American crania collected by Morton. He died in 1851 and his most direct scholarly descendent was James Aitken Meigs, who completed the cataloguing of Morton's collection, as detailed in this important paper. This tradition marks the Philadelphia beginnings of American studies of Physical Anthropology, an important branch of Human Biology, emphasized at the Wistar Institute of that city. Physical Anthropology was not an isolated field, but intersected with phrenology and other biological branches popular in Meigs's time. Here is an important autographed letter signed by Meigs and addressed to [Lorenzo Niles] Fowler (1811Ð96) & [Samuel R]. Wells (1820Ð75). Its text is as follows: Philada./ No. 423 S. Broad St./ Oct. 10th 1866 Messrs. Fowler & Wells, / Gentlemen, Along with this I mail to your address a copy of a paper upon the crania of the American Indians, which has just been published in the Proceedings of the Academy of Nat. Sciences of this city. It embodies the first attempt to classify the crania of the native races of this continent. according to their ethnic forms. I have also endeavored to show that these races do not belong to one uniform cranial type- / Please notice the paper in your Journal. / Are you done with the wood-cuts I sent you? If so, please return them by Express & oblige/ Truly Yours &c./ Jas: Aitken Meigs. At the foot of the letter in another hand and pen is the notation: Save this. W [?Wells]This letter expresses the seriousness with which Phrenology was viewed by many scholars, writers, etc. at the time. Fowler & Wells had published the second edition (expanded) of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" in 1856 as well as Whitman's own 'anonymous' review of his own work in 1855 in The American Phrenological Journal. Whitman had previously been examined phrenologically by Lorenzo Fowler and became a staff writer for "Life Illustrated", a periodical published by Fowler & Wells. (M. B. Stern, Heads and Headlnes. The Phrenological Fowlers, 1971) ( for Whitman and Fowler).The scientific paper has a number of textual corrections in the hand of Meigs. Near Fine. Alesù Hrdi ka, Contribution to the History of Physical Anthropology in the United States of America, with Special Reference to Philadelphia, Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society.

Book Description: J. & H.G. Langley, New York, 1841. Softcover. Original printed wrappers (New Series: Vol. 9, No. 41). Light chipping to the spine and edges of the wraps, else near fine. First appearance of Walt Whitman's short story: "Wild Frank's Return," which some critics believe sheds light on Whitman's relationship with his dour and possibly overbearing father (Walter Whitman, Sr. died a week after the publication of *Leaves of Grass* in 1855). The story was not printed in book form until it was collected in *Specimen Days* forty years later. The *Democratic Review* was an important political and literary journal described by Whitman in 1858 as a "monthly magazine of a profounder quality of talent than any since." Illustrated with a fine frontispiece portrait plate of Martin Van Buren, with an accompanying tipped-in publisher's notice to subscribers apologizing for the "unavoidable delay which has attended the publication of the present number, it having been caused solely by the breach of contract on the part of the engraver." A handsome copy. *Myerson* E30. Bookseller Inventory # 370698

Book Description: Mason Brothers, New York, 1855. First Edition. 12mo; 400pp; green cloth blind and gilt-stamped cloth, buff endpapers, spine elaborately gilt-stamped with leaves and author and title in script on diagonal, "Fanny Fern" in gilt on front panel within blind cartouche of grapes and leaves. There is a tiny bit of rubbing at tips and spine ends, endpapers somewhat foxed, else this is a lovely copy, the gilt stamping fresh and the text tight and clean. This is the nicest copy we've seen of a book that almost always has condition problems. Sara Payson Willis (1811-1872), America's first woman newspaper columnist and originator of the saying, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" was the daughter of Nathaniel Willis, editor and found of two Boston newspapers, and a sister of N.P. Willis, New York poet and journalist. But, her meteoric rise to fame was accomplished without the help of -- in fact without the knowledge of -- her family. Her autobiographic novel, RUTH HALL, is a rags to riches story with a difference: the heroine realizes the American dream of success on her own, without the help of or by marrying a man, just as the author, "Fanny Fern" had. And, for this she was roundly criticized as unfeminine. A graduate of Catharine Beecher's Female Seminary, she earned herself the reputation of a cut-up and wit. Left a widow with two young children to support at the age of 35, she entered a disastrous marriage of convenience to Samuel Farrington, whom she left two years later. This scandalized her family who refused to support her or her children. She began writing for the "Boston Olive Branch" and "True Flag," followed by work as a regular columnist for the "New York Musical World and Times." Her witty, satirical pieces were immensely popular and her essays were gathered and published in FERN LEAVES FROM FANNY'S PORTFOLIO (1853), which was a bestseller. After the publication of RUTH HALL, she was offered the sum of a column to write for the "New York Ledger," making her the highest paid newspaper writer of her day. Later marrying James Parton, she continued her weekly column for the Ledger for the rest of her life. An advocate of economic independence for women -- a cause very close to her personally -- while questioning male authority and conventional marriage patterns, puts her in the front line of American women "pioneers" of the 19th century. She was the first woman to publicly express her appreciation of Walt Whitman's genius in her review of LEAVES OF GRASS in the "Ledger "(1856). Although Fern wrote another novel, it is RUTH HALL that is considered her most important work. Praised by Nathaniel Hawthorne (he of the "mob of scribbling women" quote) for precisely the reasons others criticized the novel, he wrote that she tore off the strait-jacket of convention and came before the public "stark naked" which was the only way for a woman to write anything worthwhile. An important American 19th century novel. NAW III, pp. 24-5. WOMEN'S WRITING, pp. 316-317. Wright II, 1849. Warren, Joyce W. "Legacy." Fall, 1985. EMERGING VOICES, p. 51. See an Image.

Book Description: Philadelphia David McKay 1900, 1900. Early edition. With an engraved frontispiece of Walt Whitman as from the first edition. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine, lettered in gilt on the upper cover. 567 pp. A handsome copy, well preserved, clean, tight and sound. Light mellowing to the gilt of the spine panel. A CORNERSTONE WORK IN AMERICAN LITERATURE. An early edition issued by the publisher which allows the reader to sift through the many revisions Whitman made upon the poems. The lines are numbered and the footnotes include earlier renderings of the lines. Changed headings are noted. This edition of LEAVES OF GRASS contains the final revisions of Whitman’s body of poems---he died shortly before it was issued---and has been the format for most standard editions since. Whitman’s LEAVES OF GRASS portrayed America at the crossroads between an old world, soon to be caste off, and the new world of our future present. "Always the champion of the common man, Whitman is both the poet and the prophet of democracy. The whole of LEAVES OF GRASS is imbued with the spirit of brotherhood and a pride in the democracy of the young American nation. In a sense, it is America’s second Declaration of Independence: that of 1776 was political, this of 1855 intellectual. .The poems are saturated ‘with a vehemence of pride and audacity of freedom necessary to loosen the mind of still-to-be-formed America from the folds, the superstitions, and all the long, tenacious, and stifling anti-democratic authorities of Asiatic and European past’. To the young nation, only just becoming aware of an individual literary identity distinct from its European origins, Whitman’s message and his outspoken confidence came at a decisive moment. "LEAVES OF GRASS was Whitman’s favorite child. From the time of its original publication.until the year of his death, he continued revising and enlarging it. If (his) reputation has fluctuated over the years and his position among, if indeed not at the head of, the list of great American poets was not assured until some time after his death, there was never any doubt of the matter in his own mind. ‘I know I am deathless’, he wrote. ‘Whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.’ Time has vindicated his conviction."
