About This Item

Ticknor and Fields, NY/ Boston, 1863. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good. "Because 'Excursions' is a chronological presentation of Thoreau's work, including early pieces as well as essays from his later life, it gives us a fascinating look at the development of one of America's greatest writers and thinkers... Thoreau had a tremendous influence on American literature and in the development of the study of natural history. He is considered one of America's foremost writers, both in terms of his writing style and because of the forward-looking views that his essays embody... This edition includes a biographical 'sketch' of Thoreau by Ralph Waldo Emerson." [Pub. Info] New England and natural history. Original dark green binding. Gold lettering on the spine. Minor wear to the extremities and to the top of the spine. Binding is tight, boards very good, pages very good. Collectable. 1ST EDITION.
