Second Crowell edition. Corners faintly rubbed, minor scuff on spine, minor wear to 1/2 inch section of page fore-edge. 1908 Hard Cover. xii, 319 pp. 8vo. Green cloth with Margaret Armstrong binding design in gilt and maroon. Copyright page states 'second edition', though this is clearly not the second edition overall (it was first published in 1865, and reprinted quite a few times during Thoreau's lifetime); rather it is the second publication of the work by Crowell, and the first to feature the Margaret Armstrong binding design. We found several examples of a 1907 Crowell edition in the trade, none of which featured the Armstrong design. Armstrong designed around 300 different bindings, mainly in the Art Nouveau style, and continues to hold a place as one of the most prominent designers in the history of publishers' trade bindings. Her work, even on the volumes which do not include her trademark 'MA' monogram, is quite recognizable, and her bindings are widely collected. Black-and-white illustrations from photographs by Clifton Johnson, with an introduction by Johnson as well. Thoreau's transcendentalist travel meditation, focused on Cape Cod Massachusetts.
