First edition in the binding variant A, described in BAL as presumably the earliest of a number of styles, and cloth type Z. This volume compiles a large number of letters written by Thoreau to correspondents such as his wife, his sister, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with nine poems. An exceptional copy, Thoreau’s books are rarely found in such beautiful condition.

Octavo. Original purple diamond-patterned cloth, titles to spine gilt, brown coated endpapers, boards blocked in blind with eight-point cornerpieces and central wreath. With a later cloth protector. A superb copy, tight and fresh.

Bibliography: BAL 20116.
