What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Leather Binding, Limited Edition, Publishers' Original Binding

Limited edition, published exclusively for subscribers to The Franklin Library collection. 

Bound in full-morocco with gilt illustration on boards and spine. 

Illustrated with numerous in-text illustrations taken fro the work of Ronald Keller. 

This is a wonderful copy of Henry David Thoreau's nature memoir, which was first published in 1854 as 'Walden; or, Life in the Woods'. This work details Thoreau's time living in a cabin near Walden Pond, on woodland owned by his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

This text combines various themes and genres, including 'spiritual discovery', self-reliance, satire, and a general appreciation for nature. In many ways, this work reflected the core beliefs of the Transcendentalism philosophical movement, which believed in the inherent goodness of both people and nature.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American naturalist, poet, and philosopher, who was also one of the leading figures of the Transcendentalist movement. His best known work is 'Walden', as well as his essay titled 'Civil Disobedience'. 

Includes a booklet containing 'Notes from the Editors', loosely inserted into the text. 

Collated, complete.
