The Letters of John Keats by John Keats( Book )
27 editions published between 1895 and 2011 in English and held by 527 libraries worldwide
This book, published in 1895 for the centenary of the celebrated Romantic poet John Keats (1795-1821), was edited by Harry Buxton Forman (1842-1917). Forman was a Post Office administrator and a keen literary scholar, who had earlier produced important editions of Shelley and Keats. He has since become notorious for his involvement in making fake literary 'discoveries'. This centenary collection of 214 'racy, lively, inimitably good-tempered' letters by Keats aimed for completeness and contained several previously unpublished communications to addressees such as the Jeffrey family. It includes letters from Keats to his brother George (1797-1841), who lived in America, and to his fiancée Fanny Brawne (1800-65). Forman's edition of the Brawne letters had aroused controversy when it appeared in 1878, as being too personal for publication. However, Forman included them in the 1895 collection to help the reader 'complete the picture of the true Keats'
The books of William Morris; described with some account of his doings in literature and in the allied crafts by H. Buxton Forman( Book )

Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )
6 editions published in 1860 in English and held by 404 libraries worldwide
Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.
