* Walt Whitman's "The Dead Emperor" poem - 1st appearance
Page 6 has a poem titled: "The Dead Emperor", signed in block type: WALT WHITMAN .
This is the very first appearance of this poem as verified by the Walt Whitman Archive. It is very significant as such. It would later appear in his noteworthy compilation, "Leaves of Grass".
Complete in 12 pages, light toning with more at the edges, a bit fragile & must be handled carefully.
