Item Description: Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1854. FIRST EDITION. 1 blank leaf + TP + 3-357 + 3 blank leaves + [1]-8 = advertisements, small Octavo. First Edition (BAL 20106; Borst A2.1.a).Illustrated with title vignette of Thoreau's cabin in the woods and the plan of Walden Pond facing page 307. The final advertisements are dated "May 1854". Other copies are known to have ads dated April, June, September and October of 1854 but there is "no known bibliographical significance" (BAL, Vol. 8, p. 254) based on the fact that the book was printed in an edition of 2,000 copies on July 12, 1854 and published on August 9th of that same year (although ads dated before the publication date should count for something).For the next 36 years, Ticknor and Fields and their successors used these same plates to print the next 27 printings of the book. The only change came in the various imprints and in the dropping of the subtitle "Or, Life in the Woods" at Thoreau's request for the second printing in 1862.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.From the private library of the prominent New York banker, Henry William Poor (1844-1915) who was, according to his online biographical listing "a man of refined and scholarly tastes and prominent in the social life of the city. He is an ardent student and a great lover of books and has, by careful and gradual accumulation, collected one of the finest private libraries in the city of New York." His bookplate (here on the inside front cover), has a the family crest and Latin motto reading: Pauper non in spe (Not poor in hope). Original brown cloth with embossed covers and bright gilt lettering on the spine. Corners lightly bumped. Minor wear to exterior except for a small (¼" x 1`") dark stain on lower edge of front cover. Small bookplate on side front cover ("Henry William Poor") and a pencil date on front free endpaper ("August 13, 1854") - just four days after the books original publication date. With very occasional pencil underlining and marginalia. Two unattributed poems ("Walden Woods" and "Walden Water") pasted down to inside rear cover. Overall, a lovely copy of this American Masterpiece. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 892

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: John Sartain & Co, Philadelphia, 1852. Disbound. Book Condition: Good. First English Edition. First English Edition. A non-contiguous assemblage of material from Sartain's Union Magazine and Godey's Lady's Book from 1851 and 1852. 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.

Ten volumes in their original dust jackets; each bound in finely woven grey-green or red cloth. Each volume is very good in a crisp, complete dust jacket. With several bumped corners, dust foxing to the top edges and a touch of staining to the front boards of Translations. All jackets are very good with light soiling, and a touch of wear to the extremities here and there. All prices are at the top of the inside front flaps. The jacket for The Maine Woods has a small piece missing at the bottom edge of the spine. The group is comprised of the following titles in dust jackets: Walden, The Maine Woods, Reform Papers, Early Essays and Miscellanies, A Week on the Concord and Merrimac Rivers, Journals: Volumes I, II, and III; Translations, Cape Cod. A very attractive set of the first 10 volumes published in the Princeton series of Thoreau's Writings. Collectible set with an interesting letter from the Walden Forever Wild Committee mentioning plans to build a Visitor Center and a replica of Thoreau's cabin. Originally founded in 1978 as the Walden Pond Society, the Walden Forever Wild Committee’s membership consisted of activists and Henry David Thoreau enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation of Walden Pond and the Walden Woods area. Led by forester Mary P. Sherwood, the committee’s major initiative was its campaign against the continued use of Walden Pond Reservation as a recreational area, despite its allocation for such purpose in the 1922 deed that granted the land. The petition initiated by the committee called for the re-designation of Walden as an ecological-educational sanctuary. The previous owner worked for the Smithsonian Institution and received these books as a gift. Laid in Walden is an edited Walden Forever Wild brochure and a typed letter from Mary Sherwood, chairman of the Walden Forever Wild Committee dated May, 1981: Dear Dr. Oesher, This is to bring you up to date. We are donating a gasoline pump to the Walden Reservation at a ceremony in Concord July 11th. The old Walden pump is out of order much of the time, or out on loan to some other park, just when needed most. The repaired slope faces south all day long so must be watered once or twice a week, until the young planted trees take hold. The State of Mass. plans to open a Visitor Center soon, at Walden, for educational programs and we will help financially and with volunteers. We are working on acquiring a professional manager for Walden, as one is badly needed. We invited Concord residents to an open meeting on Walden problems April 28th; it drew many interested people, some of whom volunteered to work on our committees. Since we don’t have any dues, we hope you can send a dollar or two now and then or some postage stamps. Sincerely, Mary P. Sherwood, Chrm. (Signed in ink.) P.S. Written in ink: "Word has just come in that Roland Robbins may be scheduled by the state to build a Thoreau cabin reproduction at the new Walden Visitor Center. " First Editions, thus, in the Princeton Edition Series. Bookseller Inventory # 426
