Volume 13 of 14: These volumes are a reprint of the 1906 edition of Henry David Thoreau’s journal, which covers the years 1837 through 1861 in fourteen volumes.
The journals were used by Thoreau as both a personal log and as a repository for information which he would later use in his formal publications. After Thoreau’s death the journals were bequeathed to his sister, Sophia Thoreau, then to H.G.O Blake, and then to E.H. Russell. Selections of the journals had been released to the public by Blake, but Russell sought to publish the journals in their entirety. The journals were prepared for publication by Bradford Torrey and Francis H. Allen for the Houghton Mifflin publishing company and were released in 1906 as a fourteen volume set.
It is with great pride that Sportsman’s Vintage Press presents this facsimile reprint of the 1906 edition prepared by Torrey and Allen. Please note that this book is a facsimile reprint of an earlier edition. We use high quality scans which are then enhanced and retouched to ensure readability.
