* Walt Whitman's "Old Salt Kossabone" - 1st appearance
Near the bottom of page 6 is the printing of a poem: "Old Salt Kossabone" 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.
