* Dialogue between "the beloved" Walt Whitman and "the brilliant" Robert Ingersoll
Page 10 has the account of a wonderful discussion between Walt Whitman and Robert Ingersoll. See images for details. Additional news of the day with period advertising is found throughout.
Complete in 38 pages, and in overall good condition, but this issue is from the pulpish period in newspaper printing and is very fragile with a bit of flaking and chipping around the edges. It must be handled with extreme care - and an archival folder is recommended.
