WHITMAN, WALT (1819-1892) American poet, essayist, journalist and humanist.   His Bold Signature written as: “Walt Whitman / 328 Mickle Street / Camden, New Jersey”, most likely cut from a return address portion of a mailing label.   One page, small 12mo. [ 1 x 3 1/2 inches].  No date, Camden, NJ.   Accompanied by a very scarce Partly-printed invitation for one of Whitman’s talks.  The card bears a facsimile signature at top center and states:  “Walt Whitman / At Home on Thursday Evening / April 15th, 1887 / Westminister Hotel, N.Y.”  Both items are neatly inlaid into a heavier quarto leaf.  Excellent examples for framing or display, and as stated the invitation is quite scarce, and rarely encountered.
