It would be better to try to find an old edition in you could do. Have you tried searching on PG or http://www.archive.org
Harry, as far as I know, only 21 of the poems (out of about 180), which were published when the poet was still alive, can be found in public domain sites. I've checked archive.org also. The earliest instance of an edition of this complete collection was published in 1941. For this 1992 edition that I have, the "edits" that were done were basically reevaluations of punctuation and of fragments based on manuscripts and scholarly familiarity with the poet's work.
Would I be correct in thinking that MR would not be comfortable with an upload of a copy of these poems, despite the opinion of owl123 above?
