First appearance of a Walt Whitman poem...
Item # 661647
February 23, 1888
NEW YORK HERALD, Feb. 23, 1888 Near the bottom of page 4 is the printing of a poem: "The Dismantled Ship" by Walt Whitman as noted at its conclusion. This was the very first printing of this Whitman poem as verified by the Walt Whitman Archive, and is very significant as such.
Twelve pages, some margin tears, toned at the margins, should be handled carefully.
