Prefatory note by Will H. Dircks dated 1889. Thoreau’s classic account of a boat trip in 1839, partly written as a tribute to his brother John, with whom he travelled and who died in 1842. Ostensibly a travel journal Thoreau interweaves the narrative with his musings on art, history, poetry and religion. A scarce book, especially so in the rare, well preserved late 19th c. dust-jacket.
