First appearance of a Walt Whitman poem...



Item # 671988

March 08, 1888

NEW YORK HERALD, March 1, 1888 

* Walt Whitman's "My Canary Bird" poem - 1st appearance

The top half of page 6 has the printing of a short poem: "My Canary Bird" 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, partially loose at the spine, toned at the margins with some chipping & margin tears, should be handled carefully.
