(BURROUGHS, John). WHITMAN, Walt
The Rolling Earth
Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1912. Burroughs provides an 8-page introduction to this collection of "Outdoor Scenes and Thoughts From the Writings of Walt Whitman," as compiled by Waldo R. Browne. Says Burroughs, in part,"As a poet he did not specialize upon flowers or birds or scenery, or any of the mere prettiness of nature, but he thought of wholes, he tried himself by wholes, he emulated the insouciance, the impartiality, the mass movements of the earth." Owner name and date (1912) front flyleaf; bookplate cleanly removed from front pastedown; mild spotting and wear to covers; still a very good copy, without dust jacket. Uncommon in the original edition. [#034782] SOLD
