Item Description: 1902. WHITMAN, Walt. The Complete Writings of Walt Whitman, Issued under the Editorial Supervision of his Literary Executors, Richard Maurice Bucke, Thomas B. Harned, and Horace L. Traubel with additional bibliographical and Critical Material prepared by Oscar Lovell Triggs, Ph.D. New York and London: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1902. Ten volumes. Large octavo, contemporary full green crushed morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, gilt-tooled boards with elaborate floral motif surrounding red morocco diamond-shaped inlays, red watered silk doublures and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $39,000."Author’s Manuscript Edition," number 3 of only 32 sets with one manuscript page in bold black ink entirely in Whitman’s hand and signed by him. This set printed on Whatman paper and illustrated with 40 tissue-guarded engravings in double suite depicting Whitman in various stages of his life, including frontispieces in each volume, one of each beautifully hand-colored.The full-page manuscript, bound into Volume I of the set, is a manuscript of the final section of the passage in Specimen Days entitled "Hours for the Soul." Whitman has written the title "Furthermore" at the top of this page. The manuscript reads: "February 19, '80—Night [crossed out]—Just before 10 p.m. cold and entirely clear again, the show overhead, bearing southwest, of wonderful and crowded magnificence. The moon in her third quarter—the clusters of the Hyades and Pleiades, with the planet Mars between—in full crossing sprawl in the sky the Great Egyptian X, (Sirius, Procyon, and the main stars in the constellations of the Ship, the Dove, and of Orion)—just north of east Bootes, and in his knee Arcturus an hour high, mounting the heaven, ambitiously large and sparkling, as if he meant to challenge with Sirius the stellar supremacy. Walt Whitman." This important edition was issued under the supervision of three of Whitman's intimate friends: Richard Maurice Bucke, Thomas Harned, and perhaps most importantly, Horace Traubel, whose relationship to Whitman has been likened to that of Boswell to Johnson. With a biographical notice prepared by the literary executors. A total of 1,342 sets of the Complete Writings were produced and sold as six distinct editions; all copies have a half title stating "The Complete Writings of Walt Whitman" and each "edition" has a half title indicating both the name of that particular edition and the limitation. This set is the second such "edition" listed in Myerson, with priority assumed. Myerson B4. Bound into the first volume is a notarized statement dated May 19, 1902 authenticating the manuscript.A bit of minor expert restoration to the first three volumes. A beautiful set in about-fine condition. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 106126

Item Description: Self Published, Camden, New Jersey, 1889. 70th Birthday Edition. Whitman, Walt. LEAVES OF GRASS with Sands at Seventy & a Backward Glance o'er Travel'd Roads. Camden, New Jersey, [May 31st,] 1889. Privately Printed. First edition thus. 8vo., 382pp + 20pp. Late 20th-century limp black morocco, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A very good copy showing some use with some modest restoration to the spine crown & corners. Custom clamshell case. One of only 300 copies of Leaves of Grass printed in commemoration of Whitman's 70th birthday, boldly signed by Whitman on the title page. With six portraits of the author, including the famous original mounted frontispiece photograph with a butterfly resting on his finger. This copy is further enhanced by its association with Whitman's great friend & his literary executor, Richard Maurice Bucke, who has inscribed & signed the front fly-leaf: "J. N. Greenshields from his friend R. M. Bucke [three line quotation from "I Sing The Body Electric", these lines underscored in the text] Asylum, London, Ont. 6 Nov. '95." Greenshields was a prominent Montreal lawyer & important financier. Bucke was born in England & raised in Canada, studied medicine & served as superintendent of the London, Ontario Asylum for the insane from 1877 until his death in 1902. He wrote two enthusiastic studies of Whitman; Walt Whitman: A Contemporaneous Study, [1883] [was the first biography of Whitman ever written] & Walt Whitman: Man and Poet, [1897]. Bucke helped edit Whitman's Complete Writings, [1902] & In Re Walt Whitman, [1893]. Bucke's Cosmic Consciousness, [1901] reflects much of Whitman's mysticism. "Whitman's influence over Bucke, a prematurely modern man smothered by the starched collars & repressed sexuality of the period, was profound. Whitman's fearless, infectious enthusiasm, prodigious lust for life & distain of convention consumes Bucke & frees him from his social bondage". An important & notable Association Copy. "When the superintendent of the Canadian insane asylum, Dr. Maurice Bucke, meets poet Walt Whitman, his life and that of his wife and patients is radically changed. Like Dr. Bucke, Whitman has avant-garde ideas on the subject of mental illness. "Dreamers" is based on true events." - From a review of the 1990 NFB film Beautiful Dreamers, staring Rip Torn as Whitman & Colm Feore as Bucke. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 29228

Item Description: Foolsgold Studio, Vashon, WA, 2016. Artist's book, one of 10 copies, from a total edition of 12 for sale, 10 regular, 2 deluxe (Sold Out), pages on polyester film and various metals and binders board, each copy signed by the artist, Donald Glaister, on the colophon. Page size 14 x 12 inches; 32pp. Bound by the artist: textured and painted paper over boards, hand-sewn with each page on tabs to allow complete opening of each page spread, black morocco spine, with sanded aluminum insets on front and back panels; title indicated by three parallel cut-outs in the aluminum inset on front panel suggesting a counting system, housed in custom-made black cloth clamshell box. The text is letterpress printed in Filosofia in various point sizes, on aluminum and polyester sheets done from photopolymer plates by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press. The drawn images are silkscreen printed on aluminum and individually painted by the artist, Donald Glaister, who designed and produced the edition, assisted by Gabby Cooksey. The texts are Zahra Partovi's thoughtful, elegant translation of VERSES (1986) by Jalaluddin Mohammad Rumi, a 12th century Persian mystic poet, published by Vincent FitzGerald and Company and the verse of Walt Whitman from the 1855 edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, starting, "I celebrate myself." The colophon / artist's statement tells us that this book is dedicated to the memory of Don Moore, Senior Engineer on the Voyager Spacecraft Project, the late brother of Donald Glaister's wife, artist Suzanne Moore. Aside from the family ties, the two Don's were close friends.The artist, Donald Glaister, writes, " 3 IN SEARCH OF THE UNIVERSE is a celebration of the search for what is beyond: beyond what we see, what we think we see, and what we know we don't see. Rumi, Whitman, and the Voyager project all were instruments of this 'grand quest.' The writers wondered at the immensity and the universality of being. The scientist gave Voyager the physical form to that wonder. It fuels our wonder still."The book begins with couplets from Rumi, letterpress printed on textured aluminum with painted accents. The effect is ethereal and timeless, as are the couplets themselves. After the Rumi pages begins a sequence of amorphous, darkly painted, textured pages with angular cut-outs that reveal hard-edged industrial forms of plastics and metals beneath. From the fold of each of these page spreads emerges a translucent page of poetry, excerpted from Walt Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS. These seemingly incongruous elements make perfect sense given the theme of the book in general and the theme of Whitman's poetry in particular.Interspersed are the cut-out / Whitman page spreads and images reminiscent of engineering drawings painted on brushed aluminum. The aluminum paintings increase in complexity as one moves through the book. These paintings reflect the indefinite process of human creativity: the hard work as well as the flashes of inspiration that allow parts of an idea to appear fully formed in the searcher's mind. They are the visual ecstasy of "the quest." The aluminum paintings are visually oriented to the Voyager part of the trilogy but are equally applicable to the Rumi and Whitman facets as well. Man has, from the very beginning, dared to search not only his immediate environs but the immensity of all he can imagine. It is in that exploration that human beings discover themselves, as is so poignantly detailed by Rumi and Whitman. Donald Glaister's art brings us, breathtaking page by breathtaking page, to the edges of what we know of the universe, with flashes of illumination amidst the darkness, and then brings us back to the light in each of us. As well as a beautiful book, perfectly crafted, this is a profoundly moving book. To open the pages is to embark on the journey, experience the exhilaration of discovery, wonder, and joy!.

Item Description: 1885. WHITMAN, Walt. Autograph postcard signed. Camden, 1885. Autograph postcard measures 3 by 5 inches. $8000.Original autograph postcard confirming the purchase of Leaves of Grass, written and signed by Walt Whitman. Finely window-framed with a portrait of Whitman.The postcard, written entirely in Whitman’s hand, is addressed to "John K. Randall, Mercantile Library, Baltimore Md." and reads: "328 Mickle Street, Camden New Jersey. Aug. Sept. 6. I send the two Vols, Centennial Ed’n, as requested, Price #10-Please remit by post office order-Will send a parcel of minor stuff in a few days. Walt Whitman." The postcard refers to the Centennial Edition of Leaves of Grass, which was the first edition in which Whitman placed his political poems in a first volume and his spiritual poems and prose in a second volume. Although he was "one of the greatest American poets and the central one in terms of influence on 20th-century American poetry," Whitman did not attain true worldwide recognition until this edition, when his European editor William Michael Rossetti encouraged a number of famous literary personalities including John Ruskin, Edmund Gosse, George Saintsbury, Alfred Tennyson, and Edward Dowden to become subscribers (ANB). The British support was enough to prompt purchasing of Whitman’s works by American intellectuals and institutions such as the mercantile Library, to which this postcard is addressed. Postcard engraved with vignette illustration reading "Post Card" and one-cent stamp. Postal stamps dated "Sept 1885" and very faint purple stamp of the Mercantile Library.A splendid autograph postcard in fine condition, boldly written and signed. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 51823

Item Description: Gide, n.p. n.d. [July 9th, c 1914 -1918], 1918. Framed & Glazed. Original Autographed Letters. 1947 Nobel Prize in literature. Gide's career ranged from its beginnings in the symbolist movement, to the advent of anticolonialism between the two World Wars. Als, Cuverville, n.d. [July 9th, c 1914 -1918]. With an original 7"x 9" signed photo portrait by Reiss, Berlin. A particularly important Document & Original Photo Display, double glazed [recto/verso] & framed to an overall size of 21" x 24" [8" 1/2 x 6" 1/4] [8" 1/2 x 6" 1/4] [1" 3/4 x 13"] in a handsome mottled brown antique finish & decorated wood frame, triple matted, gilt filets in three windows. A fabulous letter about Kipling, Whitman, the NRF & the delicacies of translating "Leaves of Grass"; the unnamed recipient, possibly, Léon Bazalgette, [1873-1929] soon to become the noted French biographer & translator of both Whitman & Thoreau & who did title & publish Leaves of Grass, as: "Feuilles d'herbes"; this als, the possible genesis of the title's translation. The first issue of the Nouvelle Revue Française, [NRF], appeared in February 1909 but ceased publication in 1914. In 1919, under the leadership of Gide's good friend, Jacques Rivière, [1886-1925], [champion of: Proust & Joyce], the NRF began again, & featured the works of major Anglo & American writers including Conrad who Gide translated [Typhoon] & Whitman in whom Gide recognized extraordinary genius. Kipling's poem "France" was originally published in 1913. Eng. Trans: "Dear Friend, / Yesterday, in Paris, where I was spending two days, I gave your address to Jacques Rivière; you will probably receive a letter from him about Kipling's poem on France of which the French newspapers recently published a translation. / You will have certainly found, as I did, this ode of great beauty. The NRF intends to quote it in its next issue and we had thought that perhaps it would need to be retranslated and therefore, quite naturally, we thought of you. If you think there are authorizations to ask for, rights, etc. we would only have to give an abridged version. You would then only choose the best parts since I think one always has the right to give a quote. Rivière would get you the text in case you don't have it. / And this of course, if it doesn't bother you! But I don't think so; it is too beautiful and we cannot let it pass unnoticed. / When I came back I found your letter. You know better than I if "Leaves of grass" is the equivalent of "Brins d'herbe" which I would prefer in this case. The question is the following: does one usually say "Leaves of grass" as we would usually say "Brins d'herbe", or is there a research, a new association of words, which, in this case, "feuilles d'herbes" would express better. / Yours truly, André Gide".

Page size: 7.5 x 11 inches; title-page plus 50pp. plus colophon. Bound: loose in original blue Saint-Armand paper wrappers housed in blue cloth over boards custom-made cloth clamshell box with collaged labels on front and spine taken from the titlepage and colophon of book. Each verso is hand-numbered by the artist on the blue Saint-Armand paper, with the text (from the Modern Library edition) typed by the artist in 14pt. Times New Roman copied onto yellow paper and collaged to the top border Richard de Bas cream wove sheets (5.5 x 7.5 inches) that are themselves collaged to the blue Saint-Armand. Below the text is an original abstract painting in various colored India inks onto which another collage of painted black paper, with wave-shaped top, forms the bottom edge. The verso of each page is on black mould-made Italian Revere paper, with the text printed in yellow on black smooth paper in "drop-out mirror-writing" collaged to the top of the black Revere paper page, the drawing below in white Koh-I-Noor White ink, with ink painted "wave" of black paper collaged to bottom of black sheet. From the "Sea-Drift" section of Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS, "As I Ebb'd with the Ocean of Life" this well-known American poem was first published in "The Atlantic Monthly" in April, 1860 as "Bardic Symbols" and included in the 1860 edition of LEAVES OF GRASS. Critics have referred to this verse as a statement of Whitman's intellectual despair in which he questions the effectiveness of his writing. He writes of nature and decay by describing what the ocean brings in and out with the tides. With the energetic and colorful abstract images by Barry McCallion, one does not see dying and death - rather, the reader / viewer is caught in the constant push and pull of nature, re-birth and death, all with the images of the waning and waxing tides. The reader / viewer contemplates the mirror writing in white ink on the versos and has the sense of coming and going as it contrasts with the bright images on the rectos. The conclusion that they are each half of a whole is manifest. A wonderful visual interpretation of this great text. Bookseller Inventory # 10875

Item Description: East Hampton, NY, 2015. Unique artist's book, all on Richard de Bas paper, signed and dated by the artist on the colophon page. Page size: 10 x 6-7/8 inches; 56pp; including titlepage and colophon. Bound: loose in tan wrappers laid into tan paper over boards book block with gold paper spine, boards lined with hand-made black and white decorated papers; housed in custom-made tan cloth over boards clamshell box by Joelle Leavitt Webber of Mermaid Bindery with photocopied negative image of Whitman and title "As I Ebb'd" on the spine. The artist, Barry McCallion, writes in his colophon that he has combined lines from Whitman's poem with portrait photographs of the author, taken throughout his life, adding "Photograph by photograph, year upon year, the poet is captured, ebbing as we all ebb." Some of the Whitman images are behind a woven paper tapestry, eyes with focused gaze through the woven paper (behind bars or just hidden?). Other images make up the tapestry. The artist has manipulated the black and white images and silhouettes, interspersing them with the text appearing on brightly colored papers - yellow, red, aqua. The result is a book of diverse page spreads, each intriguingly beautiful, and reflective of Whitman's lines, "Paumanok there and then as I thought the old thought of likenesses?".

Item Description: 1877. WHITMAN, Walt. Autograph postcard, initialed by Whitman. Camden, October 2, 1877. Original postcard measures 5 by 3 inches); handsomely window framed with portrait, entire piece measures 18 by 12-1/2 inches. $4500.Original autograph postcard to fellow poet Edward Carpenter: "Camden, New Jersey, US America. Oct 2 [1877]— I merely write to say at once that your letter & the postal or[der] have both been safely rec’d.— The books (to the address given) will be sent immediately.— I am well for me— H[erbert] G[ilchrist] is at John B[urroughs]’s on the Hudson— Mrs. G[ilchrist] is ill in bed— Harry [Stafford] is well— Will write more fully soon. Thanks & love, WW." Framed together with a portrait of Whitman.On October 2, 1877, Whitman wrote this postcard to his friend British poet Edward Carpenter, whose best-known poem "Towards Democracy" clearly shows Whitman's influence, informing him of a shipment of books, probably copies of the second printing of Two Rivulets. Two Rivulets had first appeared a year earlier, "partly as my contribution to our National Centennial," and was reissued in September of 1876. Whitman's reference to Herbert Gilchrist's visit with John Burroughs took place at "Slabsides," Burroughs' "hermit's retreat" on the banks of the Hudson. Herbert's mother, Anne Gilchrist was one of Whitman's greatest admirers. Her appreciative article on Leaves of Grass was praised by William Rossetti as "the fullest, farthest, and most eloquent," and Whitman thought there was "no eulogium so magnificent." In December of 1877 she wrote a friend that she was still recovering from "a somewhat severe operation (under ether) to cure an injury received at the birth of one of my children" (Kaplan, 366). Harry Stafford was Whitman's "young man," whom he had met "at the Camden print shop, where Whitman saw Two Rivulets through the press" (Kaplan,359). Postcard lightly embrowned, expert repair to vertical tear. Very desirable Whitman item with revealing content. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 77309

Item Description: East Hampton, NY, 2015. Unique artist's book, all on Richard de Bas cream wove paper, signed by the artist on the last page of the book, Barry McCallion / February 2015." Page size: 6-7/8 x 4-5/8 inches; [i-v] 24pp. + colophon. Bound: loose as issue, laid into salmon pink wrappers with handmade blue and pink paper over boards portfolio, laid into custom-made blue cloth over boards clamshell box with title printed in white on blue label, color reproduction of one of the full-page paintings in India and metallic inks and acrylics of the "Forests at the bottom of the sea ." The text of Whitman's splendid poem is hand-lettered by the artist in multi-colored inks in irregular letters, filling each verso, the rectos happily accommodating the polychrome images of Whitman's imagined "other" world with its own life forms and resulting manners and mores. We are brought full circle by the poet's close, "The change onward from ours to that of beings who walk other spheres" and by the artist's images of other celestial objects viewed from a corner of earth. Whitman's romantic free-verse musings on diversity in nature and what peace and beauty is found therein is wonderfully served by the art of Barry McCallion. Bookseller Inventory # 10956

Item Description: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1990. Aaron Siskind (illustrator). Folio (435 x 370 mm; 17 x 14 ½ in.). 6 photogravures by Aaron Siskind, printed by Paul Taylor. Original quarter black Nigerian goatskin over evergreen silk-covered board, gilt-lettered on spine; publisher's cloth slipcase. Laid-in is the Whitman/Siskind issue of the Limited Editions Club Letter, series 50, vol. 4, number 560, Sept. 1990. Siskind was long associated with the Abstract Expressionist group, and one of only a few photographers within that circle. He is also a major figure from the Black Mountain School: he met Harry Callahan while both taught there in 1950, and the two later joined the faculty of the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago (founded by László Moholy-Nagy as the New Bauhaus). In 1971 he followed Callahan (who had left in 1961) to teach for the rest of his life at the Rhode Island School of Design. "Through his use of form, emotional timbre, and iconography, Siskind's work reflects one man's struggle to understand his life in relation to the world. His imagery, on one level, is autobiographical, encompassing all the many political, social, sexual, aesthetic, and introspective observations of a long and complex life" (Carl Chiarenza). This is his last body of work, the images near his home in Providence, Rhode Island "of tar poured into the cracks of light-colored concrete roads, forming swirls and curves and parallel lines, cheerful or brooding markings on a gritty surface that is rendered almost microscopically and enlarged into a striking textural background for each of the six photographs.". Some offsetting and a few scuffs/stains to slipcase; otherwise fine and fresh Limited edition, number 435 of 550 copies signed by Siskind, printed by Clary Nelson at Renaissance Press.
