Description:

Commemorative edition limited to 1100 hand-numbered copies, this being copy 22. With woodcuts by Boyd Hanna, printed directly from the block. Printed on mould-made paper specially produced for this book by the Hurlbut Paper Company. Folio, very handsomely bound in the publisher’s half brown morocco over patterned boards decorated in a "grass" motif, elaborately designed lettering in gilt on the spine. In the original slipcase of stiff boards covered by blue paper and with a cream paper lettering label printed in brown. [viii], 400, [3]. A fine and bright copy essentially as pristine and mint internally, the binding in excellent condition, only the slipcase shows some light wear. An especially pleasing copy. A BEAUTIFUL PRINTING OF THIS CORNERSTONE WORK IN AMERICAN LITERATURE. This very attractive edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, arguably the greatest work of poetry by an American author contains the complete poems following the arrangement of the edition of 1891-1892. Hanna’s powerful charcoal-style illustrations in burnt umber are both a pleasing and a moving addition to this great work of poetry. The Peter Pauper Press had great influence on the Fine Press Movement in America. Their works are an excellent combination of quality type, printing, artwork and materials. This production of Whitman’s great work is a truly impressively designed printing and may well be the finest achievement of the Press. This edition of LEAVES OF GRASS contains the final revisions of Whitman’s body of poems---he died shortly before the release of the first issue in 1892 ---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."
