Updates to Leaves of Grass editions

We have updated the editions of Leaves of Grass to standardize the presentation of the Tables of Contents and horizontal bars.  I have also added two commas that were missing in the copyright statement associated with the 1891-2 edition.

"Manly Health and Training" and Additional Editorials Published

Whitman's 1858 newspaper series "Manly Health and Training" has just been published, with an introduction and annotations by Zachary Turpin (University of Idaho). We have also published 20 new editorials likely written by Whitman for the New York Aurora. Additionally, we have written editorial notes for each piece of journalism, explaining the Archive's rationale for attributing the piece to Whitman in the absence of an explicit "Walt Whitman" byline. 

The journalism index page has been updated to reflex this new additions.

Corrected title of manuscript collection at the University at Buffalo

The Manuscript Catalogs index page incorrectly described the collection holding Whitman manuscripts at the University at Buffalo as "The Poetry Collection." The manuscripts are in fact held in the Rare & Special Books Collection. The index has been corrected to reflect this.
