The first and last journeys of Thoreau : lately discovered among his unpublished journals and manuscripts by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

6 editions published between 1905 and 1976 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franklin Benjamin Sanborn lived in Concord, Mass. in the mid 19th-century in the company of greatness. Among his peers were master thinkers Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. A follower of their works and teachings, Sanborn was a devoted abolitionist who sought reforms for the social issues of his time. He had quite a bit of personal experience with Thoreau, and as such, was uniquely qualified to write biographies of the great poet-naturalist. This work, which was published in 1905, contains manuscripts of Thoreau discovered after his death. Sanborn edited the writings into two volumes and called them, "The First and Last Journeys of Thoreau."
