* Walt Whitman's "Mannahatta" poem - 1st appearance
Near the bottom of page 6 is the printing of a short poem: "Mannahatta" 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.
Ten pages, partially loose at the spine, toned at the margins, should be handled carefully.
