About This Item

Ticknor and Fields, NY/ Boston, 1862. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 1st edition sheets; 2nd title page. Some chipping at top and bottom of spine. Minor tear at top of hinge. Boards Fine; hinge Fine; pages Fine - Fine unread copy. Thoreau took back unsold copies of "A Week" from the publisher who couldn't sell them. Some copies were bound but most consisted of unbound 1st edition sheets. About which he famously said he "carried up two flights of stairs to storage." It can be assumed with some certainty that Thoreau carried the pages bound here in this particular book. There is a protective mylar cover. A fine, collectible copy of an important book. 1ST EDITION.
