Whitman, Walt: Earliest Unpublished Notebook, v.2, 23 April 2008

This is the earliest of the many small notebooks that Walt Whitman kept. He began writing in it as he conceived of the poems that would become the first edition of Leaves of Grass in 1855. It is one of four notebooks that have survived and been scanned by the Library of Congress. Each is about 120 pages filled with various pencil notations of people he met, debts he owed, but also some ideas and poems.

This 10 Mb ebook contains only the scanned images of the 90 or so intact pages from the notebook which were not blank.

The original notebook pages were just about the same size as the images as they are displayed on a Reader.

EDIT:
Version 2 contains images with the brightness and contrast optimized for the Reader. Now, the images are about as readable on my Reader as on my PC monitor.

I have found a site with transcriptions of most of the pages of this notebook displayed alongside each page image:

Uploaded version 2. I have optimized the brightness and contrast of the images for the Reader. Now, the notebook pages are about as readable on my Reader as on my PC monitor.
