WILD APPLES: HISTORY OF THE APPLE TREE
by Thoreau, Henry David
Limited to 950 copies (Bradbury, St. Onge, 14). Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), of course, is known above all for his essays on life and nature, which are inherently bound together, each being the reflection of the other. Written in 1858, his essay Wild Apples explores the theme of the personal harvest of ideas and experiences in nature. Blind tooling on both covers. Designed by Bruce Rogers and printed letterpress by the Marchbanks Press.
