About this Item

First edition, first printing, one of 200 copies only on handmade paper, specially bound and numbered. 8 pages reproducing Thoreau s handwritten manuscript of the text. 4to, publisher s best binding of decorated linen over boards, backed in blue morocco and lettered in gilt on the spine. Housed in the original paper slipcase. xx, [16, manuscript facsimile], 30 pp. A handsome and very pleasing copy. Very well preserved and probably unused, the corners sharp and the morocco clean and in good order. Some wear and slight loss to the protective slipcase. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION AND AN IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION WITH THOREAU S ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT IN FACSIMILE FORMAT. An elusive work in its most limited format, which represents the first printing, both in facsimile and in transcription, of a previously unknown Thoreau manuscript. Early enamoured of the processes of thinking in Eastern philosophy, religion and matters of the mind, Thoreau sought, through the making of this text to depict for the Western mind that which was heretofore nearly undecipherable. His interest in matters of Eastern thought encouraged his work in the development of Transcendentalist ideas and like his writings on the return to nature and its creative store, endeared him to generations which followed for 150 years after his death and for whom his writings represent the highest in mindful ideals.
