The Journal reflects his reading, travels, and contacts with Emerson, Fuller, and other Transcendentalists. With characteristic reticence, Thoreau mentions only a few episodes in his emotional history: an ill-fated romance, the death of his elder brother, and an unhappy sojourn on Staten Island, where he tried to write for New York periodicals." Octavo. Original burgundy cloth binding, with black, blue, and gilt titles. A fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket with some very mild edgewear. Fine / Near fine. Item #70477
