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." Trace shelf wear; a very near fine copy in a good dust jacket: chipped at both spine ends and rear corners, and fragile at the folds. Uncommon in the original edition; scarce in any jacket.
