Thoreau, Henry D[avid]. (1817-1862)

Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1854. First Edition. Original cloth. Octavo. 357, ads. pages. Near Fine. In original, unrestored brown cloth over boards. Gilt-stamped spine titling remains bright. Pale yellow endpapers with no cracks to hinges. There is a visible erasure or possible bookplate removal from front pastedown. One signature within text a bit proud.. Map. I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Indeed. Here is the first edition of "Walden," Thoreau's meditation on simple living and self-sufficiency in natural surroundings. It is certainly one of the most important works of 19th century American literature. First edition in remarkably nice condition. Housed in a very handsome early 20th century portfolio and slipcase with gilt-stamped leather spine, cloth sides with verticle gilt rules. Slipcase by James MacDonald Co, New York City.
