Review by Library Journal (2004-05-15)

This 150th-anniversary edition features both color and monochrome illustrations. The book is priced at half a penny less than what Thoreau spent constructing his cabin, and a portion of the proceeds from sales are being donated to the Walden Woods Project, which strives to protect the land and waters the author loved. The Thoreau Institute and Houghton Mifflin will be holding celebratory events and displays, so be ready with a few copies of this beautiful edition. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/04.]

Review by Library Journal (2004-04-15)

Just 150 years ago, Houghton's predecessor, Ticknor & Fields, published a book called Walden by an unknown writer that has since made history. Here is an anniversary edition, which costs just half a cent less than the price Thoreau paid to build his cabin.

Review by Library Journal (1997-03-15)

This edition of Thoreau's classic contains an introduction and annotations by Bill McKibben, who asserts that "at the close of the 20th century, it is most crucial to read Walden as a practical environmentalist's volume, and to search for his heirs among those trying to change our relation to the planet". Even if you don't buy his argument, you still get a dandy little hardcover for $15.

Book description

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.
