The catalogue lists 118 notable exhibits, based largely on the renowned collection of Charles E. Feinberg. 'This exhibition is in a sense the visit that Walt Whitman had always wanted to make.

Noteworthy acquaintances through correspondence were Tennyson, Swinburne, Ruskin, Dowden, Symonds and others'. Foreword
