Scholarly Commentary


This is an uncorrected copy of the final proof of Signature T of the 1881 Poems . It differs from the second revise, which immediately precedes it, only in its pagination sequence, which was altered because of changes DGR made to Signature S at the time he was proofing this signature.

Textual History: Revision

Six copies of this proof signature are preserved in the library of the Delaware Art Museum. They include the corrected author's first proof, a printer's duplicate, a corrected first revise and a duplicate with some corrections, an uncorrected second revise, and this final uncorrected proof.
