Philadelphia: David McKay. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1891. Hardcover. Green paper-covered boards with titles in gilt on upper board and spine, top edges gilt, others deckle, publisher's original printed dust wrapper; engraved portrait. Corners bumped and rubbed, a little fading at the lower board edge, faint tide mark at the spine bottom, internally with a few marginal pencil marks, else fine, bright and sharp; the jacket with a corresponding tide mark at the spine bottom, a couple of tiny chips out at the spine head, rubbing to the spine, and a minor stain on the rear panel, but overall lovely and bright; Undated, last copyright listed as 1891 (the "Deathbed Edition") , but personally confirmed by Myerson to be an undated printing issued in 1896 with an unrecorded original publisher's dust jacket, perhaps the earliest known dust jacket for LEAVES OF GRASS. (Myerson's earliest notation of a known dust-jacket for this title is the 1900 edition - see Myerson C8-1B and also Tanselle 96.83.) A lovely copy of the definitive edition in an unrecorded jacket .

A complete edition of Leaves of Grass, and the second volume of the Aventine Classics series. Walter Whitman (May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892) was an American poet, essayist, journalist, and humanist.

Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. His work was very controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality.
