About this Item

FIRST PRINTING, the important SECOND ISSUE, bound with the separately-printed "Sequel to Drum Taps" [Washington: 1865-6]. The sequel was prompted by the assassination of Lincoln and contains some of the author's most famous poems, including "O Captain! My Captain!" and "When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom'd." Publisher's original purple cloth with the title gilt-stamped on the front cover and blind-stamped on the rear. White endpapers. All edges trimmed. There is some wear to the spine tips, a fingerprint-sized spot of discoloration to the front board [along with a few smaller spots], and a small spot or two of bubbling to the cloth on the rear board. A Very Good copy of a scarce and important book. Only 1000 copies of the sequel were printed, and many of these were bound with the 1867 Edition of Leaves of Grass. Myerson 3.1.a2. BAL 21398.
