The Illustrated Walden With Photographs from the Gleason Collection
The Illustrated Walden With Photographs from the Gleason Collection Author:J Lyndon Shanley An excellent edition of a well-known text, first published in 1854. it is distinguished by its accuracy and legibility, but also for its photographs. These were taken by Herbert Gleason in the early 1900's. They are technically superb with good lighting and matched to specific lines of text describing the same scene seventy years previously. The... more »y were only discovered a few years before the publication of this edition in the 1970's, another sixty years after they were taken. as such, they constitute a unique visual historical record of various, sometimes poetic, subjects first described by Thoreau in the 1840's.
This is a good choice from the various editions of "Walden" currently and previously available. The photographs make it a unique edition.« less
