Item Description: Edition Galerie Velais, 2005. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Offered here SIGNED by Paul Cava and in AS NEW condition is the softcover edition of "Children of Adam from Leaves of Grass," published in 2005 by Edition Galerie Vevais. This is a softcover volume with pictorial cover featuring double gatefolds with flaps. The book measures 11.25 x 12.25 inches and contains numerous reproductions in 176 pages. Photographer Paul Cava has chosen the Children of Adam poem cycle from Leaves of Grass to illustrate with his multimedia images. Cava combines his own and found photos which he manipulates and combines with drawing, painting, and collage to achieve a spiritual unity with Whitman's poetry. Cava assembled the book with the technical and scholarly guidance of Whitman scholars Professor Ed Folsom and Professor Walter Grünzweig; it also features essays in English and German by John Wood, Arden Kass, and Alexander Scholz. This softcover edition was limited to a printing of 700 copies, and this is a rare signed copy. From the Publisher: "The 'Children of Adam' cycle from Leaves of Grass is a hymn of hope for a young and innocent America. It is an anthem for a democratic America and a free world- as well as an unabashed polemic for a shame-free physical and procreative life. This book presents the controversial cluster of poems in a totally original and honest way- each of the 16 poems stands alone on its beautifully designed page, leaving space for a complex relationship to develop between the sexual and spiritual nuances of the artwork and poetry.".

Item Description: Limited Editions Club, New York, 1942. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Weston, Edwarad (illustrator). Limited Edition. 2 Volumes. Illustrated with photographs by Edward Weston taken specifically for this edition. One of 1500 copies signed by Weston at the end of Volume 2. #179 of 1500 copies. One of the most desirable of the LEC titles- this copy retains the original glassine for both volumes- with just a few small chips. The books are almost without wear- showing only tiny bits of rubbing at head of one spine and on a few corners. This seems to be more fragile than many of the Limited Edition Club volumes so it is especially difficult to find in this condition. Unfortunately lacking the slipcase. Signed by Illustrator(s).

BACKGROUND: Walter "Walt" Whitman (May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892) was an American poet, essayist and journalist. A humanist, he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. His work was very controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality. Leaves of Grass is a poetry collection by the American poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892). Though the first edition was published in 1855, Whitman spent most of his professional life writing and re-writing Leaves of Grass, revising it multiple times until his death. This resulted in vastly different editions over four decades—the first a small book of twelve poems and the last a compilation of over 400 poems. The poems of Leaves of Grass are loosely connected and each represents Whitman's celebration of his philosophy of life and humanity. This book is notable for its discussion of delight in sensual pleasures during a time when such candid displays were considered immoral. Where much previous poetry, especially English, relied on symbolism, allegory, and meditation on the religious and spiritual, Leaves of Grass (particularly the first edition) exalted the body and the material world. Influenced by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, itself an offshoot of Romanticism, Whitman's poetry praises nature and the individual human's role in it. However, much like Emerson, Whitman does not diminish the role of the mind or the spirit; rather, he elevates the human form and the human mind, deeming both worthy of poetic praise.
