    Description

    Henry D. Thoreau. Yankee in Canada, with Anti-Slavery and Reform Papers. Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1866.

    First edition. Small octavo. 286 pages.

    Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles and decorations to spine and blindstamped wreath and borders to front and rear boards. Front board is present but is detached along the front joint. Head of spine chipped; edges worn, particularly at corners. Front free endpaper is adhered to pastedown. Two inked numbers, one crossed through, on title page. Foxing to fore-edge. Overall, a good copy of a book that would be a great candidate for repair and restoration.
