- The Complete Writings. Including a biography of Whitman by his literary executors. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1902
- paper, ink, leather
Contains an autograph draft leaf from chapter 153 (Hours of the Soul) of Specimen Days, presenting the entire East subsection, beginning, "What a subject for a poem! Indeed, where else a more pregnant, more splendid one? Where one more idealistic-real, more subtle, more sensuous-delicate?" The manuscript incorporates three lines from "The Errand Bearers", a poem that was later retitled "A Broadway Pageant" and included in the 1871 edition of Leaves of Grass. The manuscript has a number of strike-throughs and emendations, some in purple ink, and a note that the three-line quote from "The Errand Bearers" should be set in smaller type. Any portion of Leaves of Grass in Whitman's hand is desirable.
