OF WOODLAND POOLS, SPRING-HOLES & DITCHES
by Thoreau, Henry David
Limited to an edition of 14, produced thus with an extra suite of engravings and an original engraving block by Abigail Rorer who is the proprietor of The Lone Oak Press. The Tree Frog engraving is the one included in the boxed set. The introduction is by Bradley P. Dean. There are further notes about New England vernal pools by Leo P Kennedy and Matthew R. Burne, as well as by Ms. Rorer. The exquisitely detailed engravings, primarily in black-and-white with some finely tuned touches of color, illuminate Thoreau's words. The extra suite of engravings repeat the illustrations, but are not bound. The engraving block is housed in the specially built box, inside its portfolio with velvet facing the engraving. The book is numbered and signed by the artist on the colophon. Taken together, it is an amazing production.
