Notes

First edition in binding variant A with Thoreau named as the author of Walden on the spine, and cloth type Z, one of several binding styles used on the first edition without precedence. Cape Cod, a collection of ten essays on the scenery and people of the region, was based on three trips that Thoreau made between 1849 and 1855. A lovely copy, Thoreau's books are rarely found in such nice condition.
