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: Rees Welsh & Co., No. 23 South Ninth Street, Philadelphia, 1882. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition thus. First Philadelphia Edition, first issue, with advertisement for Leaves of Grass and Specimen Days and Collect tipped in at front fly leaf (as the Harvard copy). 8vo: 382pp, portrait of Whitman inserted following p. 28. Publisher's finely woven mustard-yellow cloth, spine and upper cover lettered and decorated in gilt, mottled blue vein-pattern end papers. An excellent copy, about Near Fine, dust-soiled top edge, cloth lightly rubbed in places, spine gilt dulled (but completely legible), spine tips perhaps rebuilt (though skillfully so), contents clean and unmarked, pages lightly toned. BAL 21419. Myerson A2.7.d. Grolier American 100, 67. "Leaves of Grass ultimately went through six entirely different editions, and each edition had multiple issues, often with different bindings, different paper size, different cover designs, and different configurations of contents. . . . [as Whitman] altered the arrangement and number of poems, shifted titles and typefaces, and kept Leaves of Grass a shifting series of quite different texts—each one responding to a particular biographical and cultural moment—instead of a single book. . . . Each edition of Leaves is essentially a different book, not just another version of the same book." In June, 1882, Whitman signed an agreement with the Philadelphia publisher Rees Welsh & Co. to bring out Leaves using the Osgood plates of the sixth, banned edition. (On March 1, the District Attorney of Boston had advised James R. Osgood & Co. that Leaves of Grass fell "within the provisions of the Public Statutes respecting obscene literature" and advised Osgood to "withdraw" and "suppress" the book. Osgood asked Whitman to expunge the offending passages; Whitman, of course, by and large, refused, and Osgood "decline[d] to further circulate the book.") "Whitman's name appears twice on the binding, once in a gold stamped framed facsimile autograph on the front cover, and again on the spine, where the name forms the very ground of the 'Leaves of Grass' that appear above his name in both words and visual emblems, as if the leaves are literally growing from Walt Whitman. . . . And on down the spine is Whitman's beloved hand and butterfly emblem, now with the butterfly-soul appearing on the verge of taking leave of the body-hand: Whitman, still suffering the aftereffects of a stroke, was now convinced his life was near its end. The odd yellowish-olive cast of the cover cloth suggests autumn now instead of the summer-green of the early editions, and the tall grass on the spine looks like hay ready for the harvest. . . . Whitman never again created a new edition of Leaves, though he did add two 'annexes' and repackaged the book in different ways." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1199

Item 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
