Review: This is NOT a review about Leaves of Grass but a warning about the editions available . Three buffoons have already given me negative votes for writing this piece. What planet are they living on? Please read it carefully and then see it for what it is - me trying to be helpful!There is much confusion over editions of Leaves of Grass! I really recommend that you DO NOT BUY until you have checked with the seller it is the actual edition you want. The facsimile editions are rare and quite expensive. The 1855 edition is totally different from the Deathbed edition which conatains 350 more poems although some have been toned down from the first edition.Despite carefully checking in advance - I was sent a modern reprint NOT the wonderful Library of American Poets edition actually advertised! Amazon sorted it out for me but I could not purchase the edition on Amazon I wanted and ended up using a specialist antiquarian book site who really knew what they were doing! Despite it's generally excellent service, Amazon do not always seem to be able to differentiate between editions of books or DVDs, and everything, including reviews, end up being lumped together - often with disastrous results such as I have experienced - for its customers. So many people have complained about this so I cannot see why Amazon do not correct the problem. If you want the true product listed above - The Library of American Poets facsimile - and there now seems to be one real edition available at £90 - rest assured it's a wonderfully produced copy and in its size, weight, type press setting etc, provides you with a book as near to the original as you could ever hope for - or afford!! It's like holding the actual publication Whitman produced - for he typeset, printed and bound the original copies himself! This facsimile is a wonderful, and much prized, artifact.
