Fixed italics in 1860 Leaves

The first line of “Reminiscence” stanza 27 in the 1860 Leaves of Grass was incorrectly displaying without italics.  I have updated the line so the italics are displaying correctly.  Thanks to Michael Winship for alerting us to this issue.

Error corrected on periodical page for The Nineteenth Century

The Archive page for the English journal The Nineteenth Century incorrectly identified the editor of Harper's Monthly Magazine as W.H. Alden. The editor of Harper's during this time period was Henry Mills Alden. The error has been corrected.

Citation added to "Articles and Interviews" section

An essay written by Ken Price, which was removed from our "Articles and Interviews About the Archive" page in August due to a misunderstanding with a publisher, has been added back to that page, the issue having been resolved. The essay is entitled "The Walt Whitman Archive and the Prospects for Social Editing."

Updated reviews index, added new reviews

I have updated the reviews index page so that a complete list of reviews is now available and all reviews are searchable.  We have also published two new reviews: an anonymous review of the 1860-61 edition of Leaves of Grass published in the New York Herald on July 15, 1860, and an anonymous review  of the poem “A Child’s Reminiscence” published in the Sunday Times on December 25, 1859.

correction to transcription of Memoranda During the War

 I noticed that the word “in” was missing from our transcription on page 24 of Memoranda: "narrates to me the fights, the marches, the strange, quick changes of that eventful campaign, and gives glimpses of many things untold any official reports or books or journals." With thanks to Brett, the missing word has now been inserted between "untold" and "any."
