Horace Traubel, 1858-1919
In Re Walt Whitman . Edited by his literary executors, Horace L. Traubel, Richard Maurice Bucke [and] Thomas B. Harned. Philadelphia : D. McKay, 1893.
"Edition of one thousand. This is no. 166." Aware that his executors would probably publish additional material, Whitman wrote to Dr. Bucke asking that his 1883 biography (on view elsewhere in the exhibit) be kept "just as it is." He recommended publishing additional matter separately, thus this volume.
