The Leaves Of Grass (Facsimile Re-Issue -- In Dustjacket)
by Walt Whitman
New York: Collectors Reprints, Inc, 1992. Decorative Cloth. Fine/Near Fine. An all-but-pristine copy of this 1992 facsimile re-issue of the 1855 1st printing of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass". The sumptuous dark-green coloring to the covers as well as the fine gilt-tooling and lettering have been exactly reproduced. So has the wonderful decorative blindstamping. The tasteful, supplied dustjacket --a simple wraparound reproduction of the famous title page-- is bright and crisp (with just a touch of very faint soiling to the front flap) and has protected the book beautifully. Quarto, all edges gilt, this facsimile edition itself limited to 2,500 copies and "printed on acid-free paper at the Stinehour Ptress in Lunenburg, Vermont"
