Encoding of signature (in forme work) in LG 1856 corrected

I happened to notice that the signature "2*," which appears at the bottom of p. 33 in the 1856 edition of Leaves of Grass, had been encoded differently than all of the other signatures, causing it to be omitted from the individual poem display. I have regularized the encoding.

Correction to encyclopedia entry for Leaves of Grass 1891-1892

Two different people pointed out to Ed Folsom that the article by R. W. French about the 1891-92 edition of Leaves (https://whitmanarchive.org/criticism/current/encyclopedia/entry_27.html) incorrectly gave the number of new poems in the first annex as sixty-four (rather than sixty-five). I have corrected this.
