Book Description
 

LEAVES OF GRASS by Walt Whitman - FIRST EDITION BOOK

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject.

Follows the arrangement of 1891-1892 edition with woodcuts by Valenti Angelo.
