About this Item

This is a compact one volume edition of "Leaves of Grass" published during World War II. It is 5 & 3/4" wide, 7 & 1/4" tall and 1 & 3/4" deep, 728 pages in an unlaminated, matte-finish dustjacket (priced "$3.00"). It claims to be (in 1943) "the only complete, authorized edition, protected by copyright. In text and arrangement of the poems in "Leaves of Grass" with the two annexes, it follows the Putnam edition of 1902, issued under the editorial supervision of Whitman's literary executors." It includes poems discarded from that edition, and Whitman's prefaces to his volumes of poetry, those of 1855, 1872, 1876, and 1888 have been brought together, in their original text, at the back of the book. "In certain details of capitalization, punctuation, etc., Whitman's own last edition, that of 1891-2, has been followed rather than that of 1902." The book is in very good (or better) condition, still tightly bound and sharp-cornered, with some fading to the edges of the light green cloth and some mild foxing and offsetting to the endpages and pastedowns. The interior is mostly clean, with only a very few random foxing spots. There is a previous owner's bookplate attached to the front end page. The jacket has very light wear to the edges, corners and spine ends, a darkened spine, and a few small faint spots. Very clean and uncreased. A rather scarce edition, much more so in an intact dustjacket in decent condition. Bookseller Inventory # P74
