This sixteen-year record supplements the biographical information provided in the six volumes of Whitmans Correspondence, functioning as an account book, diary, journal, commonplace book, and notebook all in one.When Whitman began to keep them, the Daybooks were a personal record of predominantly business matters. As William White wrote in the introduction, He was not only the author but the publisher of his works: he was likewise his own business manager, ship, and promoter. Whatever records he kept, of his sales and distribution, of printing and binding figures, of poetry and prose he sent to newspapers and magazines . . . he entered on the right-hand pages. Volume III thus offers a rare look at Whitman as a businessman, tending as much to practical matters as to art.
