BAL 21448; Myerson A15.1.b.2. Note that Myerson has apparently confused the distinction between the first and second issues by adding a note under the first issue explaining that the title page was corrected and replaced after only a very few copies--which would be the second issue, not the first, since there is no other difference With plates of Whitman and his mother.
