Item Description: The Limited Editions Club, NY, 1942. Weston, Edward (illustrator). First edition thus. 2 volumes. 4to., xxix, 123 pp.; 124-264 pp., 50 photographic plates. Illustrated boards with leather labels. There are barely perceptible spots of light rubbing at base of the spines and on the leather spine labels, otherwise these are fine and bright. Housed in the publisher's cloth slipcase with an edge rubbed paper label on spine. SIGNED by the photographer. In 1917, Edward (Henry) Weston was elected a member of the London Salon, then considered the highest honor in Pictorialism. Later that year, after learning of Stieglitz, Steichen and Strand's break with Pictorialism, he too repudiated Pictorialism; "That whole soft focus period in retrospect seems like a staged act; I even dressed to suit the part." Also in 1917, Weston claims to have started his famous DAYBOOKS, and a copy of LEAVES OF GRASS bearing Weston's signature has passed through this bookseller's hands. Although highly romantic, many regard Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS as a forerunner of modernism, long an influence to artists of all fields. To say that this book is responsible for Weston's transformation as an artist is to presume more than would seem reasonable without a direct statement from him; however, it can be said that Whitman's influence endured, for in 1941 Weston accepted a commission from the Limited Editions Club to illustrate a new edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, published in 1942 with 50 photos by Weston. Earlier, in 1930, Weston made this statement which rings of the influence of Whitman, "Life is a coherent whole: rocks, clouds, trees, shells, torsos, smokestacks, peppers are interrelated, interdependent parts of the whole. Rhythms from one become symbols of all." (See the article by Alan Trachtenberg "Edward Weston's America: The Leaves of Grass Project" in EW 100: CENTENNIAL ESSAYS IN HONOR OF EDWARD WESTON. Untitled 41, 1986.) Limited to 1500 copies, signed by Weston. Bookseller Inventory # 51864

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
