Item Description: Boston Ticknor and Fields 1854, 1854. First edition, first state of the text, early state of the ads, May 1854. A copy with provenance having belonged to A. Pell, Jr. of West Point, a friend and colleague of William Cullen Bryant and a founder and owner of the International Ocean Telegraph Co. which received the rights from Congress to lay the cables from America to Cuba and on to Latin America. Bryant visited and stayed in touch with Pell for some years and was involved with him in the Free Trade Club. Pell is buried at West Point and owned historic property there. Illustrated with the map of Walden Pond printed on a separate leaf and inserted at p. 307 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth lettered in gilt and ruled in blind on spine, bordered and decorated in blind on all covers. Housed in a fold-over morocco backed case. 357, [8 ads (dated May, 1854)]. A handsome copy indeed, internally quite pleasing and quite fresh with very little evidence of age or use, the binding very expertly and unobtrusively refreshed at the tips of the spine panel. HIGHLY IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF A SEMINAL WORK IN AMERICAN LITERATURE. WALDEN has taken its place as one of the most important pieces of American literature and a highlight of American thought. In attempting an experiment in simple living Thoreau became the embodiment of the American quest for the spiritual over the material; and his book, ostensibly a simple record of his experiment, has earned the reputation as a work of great philosophical import. An interesting note is penciled in at the rear of the volume: "Thoreau’s mother said to Mr. Henry James . Mr. Emerson has been so much with my son that he talks & writes quite like him." DCP[ell].

Item Description: Ticknor & Fields,, Boston:, 1854. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. 357, [7] pp., plus 8 pages publisher's advertisements dated May, 1854. Map of Walden Pond facing page 307. A couple of leaves in the back are misbound, but appear to have been done so at the time the book was originally bound. Original brown cloth stamped in blind with gilt lettering on spine, expertly rebacked; interior with minor spotting, but overall an excellent copy. First edition of an American classic, one of two thousand copies of the first printing. Originally written in a journal before they were made into a book, the entries date from 1839 and extend to within a few months of the publication. This was the second of two books published during the author's lifetime.Thoreau (1817-62), New England transcendentalist, natural philosopher and peaceful anarchist, opposed the oppressive forces of government and industrial life upon the individual. He acted variously upon his philosophy, gradually removing himself from economic production, then living apart from the community in his retreat at Walden Pond. Later he was to refuse to pay his poll tax as a protest against the Mexican war, being jailed for a single night before an aunt paid the tax. He further demonstrated his conviction in the supremacy of conscience over law by assisting in the escape of fugitive slaves. Bookseller Inventory # 10741

Item Description: John Sartain & Co., Philadelphia, 1852. Half Morocco and Marbled Paper. Book Condition: Good Plus. [from engravings] (illustrator). First Edition. 10" x 6.75". Philadelphia: John Sartain & Co., 1852. Verne translation by Anne T. Wilbur. All eight numbers from volumes X and XI of Sartain's Union Magazine [January through June 1857 comprising Vol X., with July and August of 1852 - after which Sartain's ceased publication - comprising Vol. XI]. Vol. X 516 pp., Vol XI 208 pp., bound as one volume. 10" x 6.75" , half black morocco with marbled paper boards. Personalized plate at center cover, apparently as produced, in the name of Jane A. Warner. Later of the Forbes Library, Northampton, MA., with that organization's bookplate at front pastedown and perforated stamp at title page, other Forbes indication at rear endpapers. Binding is quite scuffed, with corners and spine ends thoroughly affected; hinges starting. Sporadic light foxing throughout, lightly showing a bit at the Verne first appearance in some margins only, not affecting the Thoreau first appearances. Good plus for the volume, Very Good plus or better for the textblock as a whole and the subject entries in particular. In the dying months of Sartain's Union Magazine in 1852, it might have been of some benefit had that publisher been able to look to the future and understand the significance of what was contained in the the May, July and August numbers: The first appearance in English of Jules Verne ["A Voyage in a Balloon"], in May, and the first appearance of any portion of Henry David Thoreau's Walden [two essays, "The Iron Horse" in July and "A Poet Buying a Farm" in August]. Therein the last Sartain's hardbound volume contained seminal appearances of what would become two of the the most significant and most widely reprinted authors in history, in two vastly disparate genres. Sartain's had, with its last gasps, done with these three short and - at the time - inconspicuous pieces exactly what so many periodical publications of its type and era sought to do. This volume contains all eight months; it appears that some, perhaps most, other examples of the hardbound volume did not include the July and August numbers containing Thoreau's essays, although statistics on this point are unavailable to me. "A Voyage in a Balloon" - as "Un Voyage en Balloon" - was Verne's second tale, published originally in France a year earlier. Anne T. Wilbur translated the 7-page story for Sartain's - and even received, in the index, authorship credit, although the story itself is rightly credited. Later to become part of the Doctor Ox aggregations, it was - Taves & Michaluk, V012 - "apparently the first time Verne ever appeared in English." He would have been about twenty-four years old at the time. The two Thoreau essays - respectively three pages and one page in Sartain's dense double-column presentation - were the first taste ever of Walden, which was published in book form two years later, in 1854. Bearing as well the seemingly countless articles, stories, poems and charming engravings which were the stock-in-trade of such publications, this one, particular, dying volume of Sartain's Magazine may be, much more significantly, a peerless confluence of inchoate genius, from two who would thereafter take distinct paths to literary immortality.

Item Description: Boston, Ticknor and Fields, 1865. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. CAPE COD 1865; Henry David Thoreau; First Edition, First Issue; Boston, Ticknor and Fields; 252 Pages, 24 of Ads Dated Dec. 1864; w4.8"xh7.4"; Very Rare!!! One of Only 2,000 Copies Printed!!! ATTRIBUTES: A Charming, sleek original beaded brown cloth cover design with stamped borders, pretty gold binding, brown end pages and a Great Travelogue from the Legendary Author!!! SUMMARY: In the plants, animals, topography, weather, and people of Cape Cod, Thoreau finds 'another world' Encounters with the ocean dominate this book, from the fatal shipwreck of the opening chapter to his later reflections on the Pilgrims' landing and reconnaissance. Along the way, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, farmers and salvagers, lighthouse-keepers and ship captains, as well as his own intense confrontations with the sea as he travels the land's outermost margins. Chronicles of exploration, settlement, and survival on the Cape lead Thoreau to reconceive the history of New England - and to recognize the parochialism of history itself. BACKGROUND: Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American author, poet, philosopher, polymath, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Resistance to Civil Government (also known as Civil Disobedience), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state. CONDITION: Condition is Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, little to boards, slight lean inward/right to the front board, some glue to inner spine, most pages are very good, light blemish to upper right margin at edge in beginning, couple tiny black dots at very edge of a few pages, blemish to upper/lower margins of ads, hinges/text block are very good for 150 years old!!!.

Item Description: Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1865. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau. First edition, early printing. The first printing was published in 1854 by the same publisher. Published by Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1865. Measures 4.5" x 7.25", 357 pages. Bound in publisher's original blue green cloth with embossed decoration and borders. Gilt titling to the spine. The book is in very good condition. Faint soiling to the boards with gently rubbed edges. Sunning to the spine with loss at the edges. The cloth at the front joint is worn and frayed. The front board is starting, with the endpaper nearly loose. Previous owner's inscription in ink on the front leaf. The contents are largely clean and bright, with some sporadic spotting. A nice copy of Thoreau's exploration of introspection. Inspired by the transcendentalism movement, Thoreau immersed himself for two years, two months and two days in the woodlands owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thoreau and the transcendentalists believed that man was inherently good, but that they were corrupted by society - especially politics and organized religion. Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Please view the many other rare titles available for purchase at our store.

The volume, missing the front board, would benefit from being disassembled and rebound in it's component parts - half title pages are mis-matched, engravings are found in odd places, etc. We have not collated this volume and cannot guarantee completeness of the other articles, engravings, etc other than to note that the Verne and Thoreau articles noted in this description are present and complete, and that the issue title pages are also present, hence the pricing at well below "market values". There are numerous other interesting items in this assemblage including an early poem with color plate, Godey engravings, etc etc. Disbound. Contains 2 literary giants in original publications before they were well known - Jules Verne, and Henry David Thoreau. The Verne piece , "A Voyage in a Balloon" was translated from the French by Anne T. Wilbur. Taves and Michaluk (V012, p 143) note that "This was apparently the first time Verne ever appeared in English . The assemblage also contains "The Iron Horse" and "A Poet Buying a Farm" both by Thoreau. These articles are notable for being early contributions to Thoreau's famous work "Walden, Or Life in the Woods" published in 1854, which detailed his personal experiences and reflections near Walden Pond in Concord Massachusetts.
