SOLD - Leaves of Grass - Walt Whitman

1927 - George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., London
An exquisite Riviére binding of Walt Whitman’s poems, with elegantly laid out typeface. Housed in custom slipcase.

In 1855 Walt Whitman published his first collection of poetry, Leaves of Grass. The volume received great praise from leading Transcendentalist poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. This encouraged what would become a lifelong project as Whitman expanded and rewrote the volume until his death in 1892. Whitman's innovative use of free verse and the quotidian achieved his aim of reaching out to the everyday American.
