Walt Whitman writes a poem for Dartmouth's commencement......



Item # 661285

June 26, 1872

NEW YORK HERALD, June 26, 1872  Page 3 has Walt Whitman's "As a Strong Bird on Pinions Free," a poem he wrote and delivered at the 1872 Commencement at Dartmouth College.
This printing was actually from the day prior to the Commencement, making it one of the earliest if not the earliest printings of this poem. It is widely considered its first publication and was later incorporated into an update of "Leaves of Grass." See the images for details.
Twelve pages, very nice condition.
