The Whitman Book Dilemma Part 2

This post contains the lists that I made of many Whitman books.  I grouped these books under a few headings as I worked towards making sense of the types of books published by Whitman.  The books listed here are primarily from the 2300 set, but some books are from years later.  These are not complete lists.  I avoided italics so that the titles are easier to read.
