Such poems as ‘I Sing the Body Electric’ and ‘Song of Myself’ asserted the beauty of the human body, physical health, and sexuality in 1856 the second edition of Leaves of Grass appeared. This collection contained revisions of the poems of the first edition and several new ones All his later volumes of new poems were to be incorporated into successive editions When his brother was wounded at Fredericksburg, Whitman went there in 1862 to care for him. For the rest of the Civil War he spent much time caring for both Union and Confederate soldiers. In May 1865 Drum-Taps showed Whitman’s readers a new kind of poetry, ranging from his early oratorical excitement to his later awareness of the horrors of the war. The Sequel to Drum-Taps, published in the autumn of 1865, contained his great elegy on Lincoln, ‘When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d’" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).Myerson B4.

        Art of Walter Crane

This is still the best and most comprehensive work on Crane's art, encompassing his illustrations, paintings, and decorative works.

There are also two inserted facsimile leaves from The Story of the Glittering Plain published by the Kelmscott Press.

The book begins with a chapter discussing Morris's influence on Crane's ideas of Socialism and art. A very good small folio bound in the original blue-green pictorial cloth, with the cover design and spine printed in black and gilt. The covers show wear, with slight fraying at edges, brief spotting, and the front hinge slightly cracked. The interior is quite clean and bright save for some very light aging to margins and a small brown stain on one of the color illustrations and its facing page.

First edition. This is Pareto's second major work and an analysis of various types of socialism. The purpose of this book was to set out considered criticism of liberal beliefs, and therefore of any doctrine based solely on reason. Pareto maintained that socialism took advantage of the desire which every man has of transcending his own state, of imagining new roles for himself and his family, of building castles in the air and rationalizing them, of living in a better world. In this way socialism elaborated on powerful myths and political formulae which could be used to spur the masses into action and, through this action, bring about real changes in every sector of individual and collective life.(New Palgrave III, p. 802).

        (Novel): Diane, Priestess of Haiti, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, LXIX, April 1902

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott. 1902. First. First, and apparently only edition. Front wrap detached, and chipped at the bottom corner, as are the edges of the first two pages (both of ads), last page of the novel has a short tear and small chip, as do a few of the following pages, else a sound and readable, good or better copy. This issue contains the only appearance of this complete novel by an African-American author. The novel features a separate title page, prints the author's name and title on the spine, and takes up a significant portion of the magazine (80 of the issue's 128 pages, with the remainder mostly comprising advertisements). Durham (1861-1919), born in Pennsylvania, was the assistant editor of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. In 1891 he was named U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Santo Domingo and U.S. Minister to Haiti, an office that he served until 1893. This novel was not published elsewhere to our knowledge. Individual issues of this magazine are rare -- we have never seen another example of this issue offered for sale. .
