Rare Leaves of Grass Edition

I was taking photos of rare books for a University Archives digital collection last week and this edition of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass caught my eye. John Edens, the university archivist told me it is a very rare edition that is part of Thomas B. Lockwood’s book collection. The typography on the cover is just awesome.
