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.

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).

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.
