Collector's Library, 2004 - 360 pages
Henry David Thoreau, along with Poe, Emerson, Whitman, and Hawthorne, is considered one of the leading figures in early American literature. And Walden is without a doubt his most enduring work. A philosophical meditation on man, society, and nature that has influenced generations of readers, it was inspired by Thoreau's attempt to live in solitude on Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau's wooden shack, built by himself and a few friends, has won a place for itself in the collective American psyche. The world's greatest works of literature are now available in these beautiful keepsake volumes. Bound in real cloth, and featuring gilt edges and ribbon markers, these beautifully produced books are a wonderful way to build a handsome library of classic literature. These are the essential novels that belong in every home. They'll transport readers to imaginary worlds and provide excitement, entertainment, and enlightenment for years to come. All of these novels feature attractive illustrations and have an unequalled period feel that will grace the library, the bedside table or bureau.
