About this Item

First Edition. 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. 8vo, publisherís original brown cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on spine and paneled and decorated in blind on both covers. 229. A small bit of wear at the head and foot of the spine, and with evidence of a bit of old typical water staining at the top edge of the pages, not affecting the text and rather unobtrusive. A very decent copy and with some pleasing provenance attached. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL CLOTH AND A COPY WITH KNOWN PROVENANCE. A SCARCE FIRST EDITION. In respectful admiration of Thoreau and as an honour to their good friend, Ralph Waldo Emerson, leader of the Transcendentalist Movement in America, gathered these letters from the original manuscripts to form this wonderful volume replete with very personal encounters with the mind of one of the periodís most revered writers.
