The Illustrated Walden

Regular price $22.00 Sale

"In 1897, thirty-five years following Henry David Thoreau's death, his publisher issued a two-volume "Holiday Edition" of Walden illustrated with thirty remarkable engravings, daguerreotypes, and period photographs. In 1902, this special work was collected into a single volume. Now, to mark the bicentennial of Thoreau's birth in 1817, this timeless landmark is reproduced with all of the original illustrations and the complete text of his mystical, practical, magisterial record of a life in the woods. 

"Featuring the original cover of Walden's first Penguin English publication, here is a truly matchless reproduction of one of the greatest statements of American mysticism, Transcendentalism, and leading a life of deliberate simplicity."
