    This is an Awesome Collection

    This is an awesome collection to have in one's own library.

    Everyone should own Whitman works, along with Ohio Blue Tips by Jeanne E. Clark, The Photos In The Closet by Daniel E. Lopez, and works by Alison Townsend.

    America's Poet

    In our tubulent times, it is great to reflect on Whitman's poetry written during the Civil War. Truly an insight for his and this generation.

    GOOD but not great

    From the picture I thought the book was leather bound but its just the slip cover that looks like that. Only after receiving the book did I realize that its an anniversary edition of precisely what was published in the first edition, meaning the complete works of Walt Whitman are not in this book. I would recommend this for those who want to know more about the man and his work because of the original reviews and letters included. This is not for someone who wants all of Walt's work.

    Pleased, but...

    The contents are what you'd expect; however, the images I saw online led me to think the book had an embossed cover like the original edition. Instead, it is just a dust jacket with a facsimile of the original cover.

    Not what I expected at all from the online image. Feel conned and will return promptly. Love the content, but a cheap paperback with the 1855 edition can give me that.
