About this Item

Octavo. 41pp. From an edition of fifty numbered copies, this is one of forty offered for sale. Printed on Japan vellum in red and black from the plates of The Bibelot, Vol. 10, June 1904. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the author, with a facsimile inscription to Horace Traubel, who wrote the Foreword. Contains the four poems that became "Memories of President Lincoln" when they were reprinted together in the 1881 edition of Leaves of Grass. "O Captain! My Captain!" was published seven months after Lincoln's assassination and was Whitman's tribute to the president he greatly admired. This collection also includes seven additional poems inspired by the American Civil War and variously reprinted from Drum-Taps and Leaves of Grass, as well as "Beat! Beat! Drums!," which was published at the beginning of the war and was a rally cry for the Union army. Fine in Japan vellum-covered stiff paper wrappers, with yapp edges at top and fore-edge. Label with information about Abraham Lincoln pasted to rear wrapper. Spine of book lightly tanned, and minor soiling on book concurrent with the cut-out on the slipcase for the finger pull. Housed in paper slipcase, which is slightly worn and soiled. (Myerson 16.1). Bookseller Inventory # 24383
