About this Item: David McKay, No. 23 South Ninth Street, Philadelphia, 1884. Hardcover. Condition: Fine-. Early Reprint. Reprint of the Rees Welsh edition of 1882 (which, in turn, reprinted the sixth, banned edition published in Boston), with integral title page; in effect, the second Philadelphia edition. 8vo: 382pp, single leaf with Samuel Hollyer 's steel-engraved portrait of Whitman and tissue guard inserted following p. 28. Publisher's finely woven mustard-yellow S cloth (BAL binding A), spine and upper cover lettered and decorated in gilt, mottled blue vein-pattern end papers. A superb example, about Fine, binding square and tight, gilt undiminished, contents clean, fresh, and bright. BAL 21630. Myerson. Grolier American 100, 67. In June, 1882, Whitman signed an agreement with the Philadelphia publisher Rees Welsh & Co. to bring out Leaves of Grass using the Osgood plates of the sixth, banned edition. (On March 1, the District Attorney of Boston advised James R. Osgood & Co. that Leaves of Grass fell "within the provisions of the Public Statutes respecting obscene literature" and advised Osgood to "withdraw" and "suppress" the book. Osgood asked Whitman to expunge the offending passages; Whitman, by and large, refused, and Osgood "decline[d] to further circulate the book.") That same year, in October, after Rees Welsh had issued the first Philadelphia edition, David McKay, a young Scottish immigrant, took over the business from Rees Welsh and became Whitman's friend, strong supporter, and publisher. Two years later, McKay reprinted the Rees Welsh edition of 1882 with new title page and binding to match the banned Osgood edition. "Whitman's name appears twice on the binding, once in a gold stamped framed facsimile autograph on the front cover, and again on the spine, where the name forms the very ground of the 'Leaves of Grass' that appear above his name in both words and visual emblems, as if the leaves are literally growing from Walt Whitman. . . . And on down the spine is Whitman's beloved hand and butterfly emblem, now with the butterfly-soul appearing on the verge of taking leave of the body-hand: Whitman, still suffering the aftereffects of a stroke, was now convinced his life was near its end. The odd yellowish-olive cast of the cover cloth suggests autumn now instead of the summer-green of the early editions, and the tall grass on the spine looks like hay ready for the harvest. . . . Whitman never again created a new edition of Leaves, though he did add two 'annexes' and repackaged the book in different ways." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) N.B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Seller Inventory # BB1422

About this Item: The Limited Editions Club, 1936., 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 49 Half-Tone Photographs by Edward Weston. Limited Edition Club, #586 of 1500. Signed by Edward Weston. Very Good Condition. This is a signed limited edition of "Leaves of Grass" published by the Limited Editions Club in 1936 with a limitation of 1500 copies with this being number 586. From "Edward Weston - The Final Journey", "When Limited Editions Club commissioned Edward Weston to create photographs specifically for this handsome two-volume edition, he and Charis Wilson embarked on a seven-month tour across America - at a time when America was about to enter WWII. Charis would later recall many times when they read Whitman aloud to one another, and especially remembered Weston¿s sheer pleasure in producing this volume¿s majestic photographs." Measuring approximately 12.25" x 9.25", the books are bound in pictorial coated boards reproducing a Weston photograph with gilt tiled leather labels to the spines and housed in the original publisher¿s slipcase. The books are in Very Good condition with moderate rubbing to the heels of the spine, minor rubs to the corner tips, and some rubbing to the leather spine labels. The paper slipcase is in Very Good condition with the label presenting edgewear at the top quarter and various shelfwear. The internals of the book are very clean with no markings or signs of previous ownership. Overall, this is a highly collectible copy of a notoriously fragile edition. The books have been signed by Edward Weston on the limitation page stating that this is number 586 of 1500. Signed by Illustrator(s). Seller Inventory # 000565

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 51864
