(WHITE, E.B.) THOREAU, Henry David
Boston/NY, Houghton Mifflin, 1899, 1904. The two-volume edition with illustrations by Amelia M. Watson. Unmarked, but from the library of E.B. White. These are later printings, with 1904 and 1899 dates on the title pages, respectively, in Roman numerals. Contemporary half leather binding, over marbled boards, top edge gilt. Rubbing to joints; near fine. An attractive copy of this edition, with distinguished provenance: E. B. White was a great fan of Thoreau, and even wrote an introduction to a 1964 edition of Walden, an essay entitled "Walden -- A Young Man in Search of Himself." Letter of provenance available.
