Item # 681006
March 12, 1888
NEW YORK HERALD, March 12, 1888 Page 4 has a poem titled: "The First Dandelion", signed in block type: WALT WHITMAN .
This is the very first appearance of this poem as verified by the Walt Whitman Archive, significant as such. It would later appear in his noteworthy compilation, "Leaves of Grass".
Complete in 10 pages, light toning with more at the edges, mostly loose at the spine, a bit fragile & must be handled carefully.
