Clean, tight, unmarked; several pages turned from bumping to upper inside corner; a few light scratches to covers; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; very minimal wear; appears unread; This special edition of Leaves of Grass was prepared in on observance of the 100th anniversary of Whitman's death in 1892 and contains the entire "Deathbed Edition." Today Whitman is revered for his accomplishment, and many of his poems are admired as among America's finest: the exquisite personal meditation of "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking"; the celebration of the human body and spirit in Song of Myself; the paeans to companionship of the Calamus poems; and the landmark elegy for Abraham Lincoln, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd." Throughout Leaves of Grass we glimpse the sublime beauty of the natural world and feel Whitman's loving embrace of the common man.
