typo corrected in 1860 LG

An Archive-user spotted a typo in our transcription of the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass. I've revised the line "It avails not, neither time or place—instance avails not" (from "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry") to read, correctly, "It avails not, neither time or place—distance avails not," as indicated by the page image.

Ed's introduction to the photographs (re)added

This essay, which had been available as far back as the brown site, went AWOL at some point in the various migrations that the gallery has made in the last couple of years. It is now available again (as a link from the Pictures and Sound index page).

Review of "Leaves of Grass Imprints" Added

I encoded a review of Leaves of Grass Imprints (1860-61) by Whitman that, as Ken noticed, was published in the special reviews issue of WWQR but that was not featured on our website. I also added a link to a previously encoded review of Poems by Walt Whitman (published in Temple Bar, Oct. 1869) that was missing on the index page for some inexplicable reason.

Pionery text revised

Lisa Renfro proofred the transciption of Pionery and found and fixed several small errors. I have posted the revised version of the file, and I've also revised the encoding and the stylesheet so that indented lines now display correctly.
