1885 WALDEN by Henry David Thoreau Massachusetts Illustrated Transcendentalism
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately…”--Henry David Thoreau
“Walden” is Henry David Thoreau's account of his two-year adventure in self-reliance amidst woodland in a cabin he built near Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts. He hoped to isolate himself from society to gain a more objective understanding of it. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period.
This 1885 edition of “Walden” is bound attractively in green cloth with Thoreau’s signature in gold inlay on the front board.
