Edited by majorMoreAs scholarship has made its importance to American letters more manifest, editions of the 1855 version of Whitmans masterpiece have multiplied. This one, prepared in honor of the poems 150th anniversary, will be hard to beat. Edited by major Americanist Reynolds (Walt Whitmans America, etc.), it comes as close as possible, without being a facsimile, to reproducing Whitmans original text, which he famously self-published.

The familiar litho of the young rough with open collar opens the book, and Reynolds terrific and informative afterword closes it, along with contemporary reviews (some written by Whitman himself) and Emersons famous letter (I greet you at the beginning of a great career...). Those who know Whitman only through the beautiful but bloated 1892 deathbed edition of Leaves of Grass will find here a lean, searing celebration of self.
