error in transcription of periodical printing of "Beat! Beat! Drums!" fixed

The transcription of "Beat! Beat! Drums!" duplicated the word "his" in line five. I've fixed this error in the WWA transcription. In addition, I've updated the bibliographic information for the Genoways volume referenced in the publication history section. Genoways' work was listed as "forthcoming," which I've changed to "2010."

typo in "Beat! Beat! Drums!" corrected

A Whitman Archive user directed our attention to a typo in our transcription of the periodical printing of "Beat! Beat! Drums!" In the first stanza, "congregation" had been mistranscribed as "congregagation." I've fixed the error.

title of Poems of Walt Whitman changed in two places in Reviews

I have changed the title of Leaves of Grass: The Poems of Walt Whitman to Poems of Walt Whitman in two places in the Reviews section: the Reviews index page and the heading of the index page for reviews of the edition (currently only a single review). These changes make our use of the title consistent throughout and match the title of the edition as it is given in the review itself.

Page "header" to Blue Book page images adjusted

I've implemented a couple of small changes to the text of the title that appears in the grey border over these pages.

Blue Book entry added to the encyclopedia

This entry, by Arthur Golden, was not one of the 80 originally transcribed, so I proofread from the recently received pre-publication file and then added it to the XML file that holds all the selected entries. This was necessary so that I could provide users with the text from the "about" link for the Blue Book on the Leaves of Grass index page.

Links to Blue Book images and encyclopedia entry added from LG index page

I've created a "page flipper" for the Blue Book and added a link to it from the Leaves of Grass index page (under the 1860 edition).
