About This Item

1881. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1881 / 1884 / 1888 / 1892. [Together, four volumes.] Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled. First Edition, first printing, of each of Thoreau's "four seasons" edited from his journal by H.G.O. Blake. (It is curious that the four seasons were published not quite in their natural order.) According to Blanck these four printings consisted of only 1018, 1260, 1550 and 1020 copies respectively. These are unusually bright copies -- a touch of rubbing at some corners, perhaps a faint scratch or two, but otherwise Fine. It is not easy to encounter all four Seasons in this condition. Borst A8.1.a & A9.1.a & A10.1.a & A11.1.a; Blanck 20123 & 20127 & 20129 & 20130. Housed in an open-back slipcase.
