Original calf-backed orange cloth, spine gilt, red and green morocco spine labels, silk book-ribbon, A.e.g., housed in custom blue morocco-backed clamshell case. Camden, NJ: Author's Edition, 1876. First edition, sometimes known as the "Centennial Edition." BAL 21411. One of 100 copies. Frontis. original portrait photograph of Whitman signed by Whitman: "Walt Whitman born May 31, 1819." A printed caption reads: "Photo'd from life, Sept., '72, Brooklyn, N.Y. by G.F.E. Pearsall, Fulton St." Additionally inscribed by Whitman on the front free endpaper to a Dublin friend: "Alfred Webb, from his friend, the author." Webb's bookplate is on the front pastedown, while on the front blank leaf is the bookplate of Stella Marion Barclay Webb, printed by the Cuala Press. Above this latter bookplate is an ink inscription, presumably in Stella Webb's hand, tracing the book's ownership from its original recipient: "This book probably passed to Alfred Webb's sister, Deborah Webb, and from her to Constance Haughton, companion to Deborah Webb in her last years. It was given on Constance Haughton's death to" [bookplate]. Contains the first printing of "Two Rivulets" (poems), most of "Centennial Songs" (poems), and "Memoranda during the War" (nonfiction prose memoirs of the Civil War). The volume also contains "Democratic Vistas" (prose), "As a Strong Bird on Pinions Free" (poems), and "Passage to India" (poem). As in most copies of this edition, the first line of the second paragraph on p. 60 in Democratic Vistas is changed in Whitman's holograph to read: "Long long ere the Second Centennial." A superb copy of a Whitman rarity with an interesting provenance. Very small dark stain at fore-edge of front cover, else a near fine copy of a book rarely seen in such excellent condition.
