From the copyright page:
The text for this edition is based on the ninth, or "Deathbed" Edition of 1892, the last presided over by Whitman bearing his injunction to preserve it intact as the final form of "Leaves of Grass."

Condition notes: This is a vintage item so as such expect some light wear and signs of age and previous use. Overall this is in nearly excellent condition though with only minor wear (mostly just a few spots on the hardcover)
A beautiful collectors edition!
