Missing page images added to the 1871 LG

 Archive user Paul Derkinderen drew our attention to the fact that our transcription of the 1871 Leaves of Grass lacked an image of p. 77 and, instead, showed p. 76 twice. After investigating further, I discovered that the problem was in the original scans themselves and that we also lacked scans of the covers and spine. Staff from UVa Special Collections located the volume that they had scanned for us about 20 years ago and scanned the missing pages/parts. I have processed the images and updated the encoding to incorporate references to those new images.
