$45.00

Leaves of Grass is an expansive collection of poetry, with themes of life, individuality, and the natural world. It is widely regarded as the best American poetry of the nineteenth century, and certainly Whitman’s greatest work. Whitman self-published various editions beginning in 1855, each with new lines and sections, making it one of the most variable texts between editions. This illustrated edition by the Heritage Press contains the standard text of the work as defined by Whitman’s executors. It also contains Rockwell Kent’s elegant illustrations, first published by the Limited Editions Club in 1937.

This volume is in fine condition. In the full teal cloth with gilt stamping, fine. Text block fine. Dyed edges. Kent’s illustrations superb. With the publisher’s original slipcase, very good with only fading, rubbing, and minor soiling.

A fine collector’s copy of Whitman’s greatest work with Rockwell Kent’s illustrations.
