Thoreau, the poet naturalist; with memorial verses by William Ellery Channing ( Book )
42 editions published between 1873 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 1873 work was the first biography of Henry David Thoreau. Written from the perspective of a close friend, it contains much intimate knowledge which has since been cited by other biographers. Channing's work is as much a eulogy as a life-story, tracing Thoreau's early days and chronicling his many interests: reading, writing, nature, philosophy, and even sports

The Maine woods by Henry David Thoreau ( Book )
5 editions published in 1864 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Maine Woods is a characteristically Thoreauvian book: a personal account of exploration, of exterior and interior discovery in a natural setting, conveyed in taut, workmanlike prose. Thoreau's evocative renderings of the life of the primitive forest--its mountains, waterways, fauna, flora, and inhabitants--are valuable in themselves. But his impassioned protest against despoilment in the name of commerce and sport, which even by the 1850s threatened to deprive Americans of the "tonic of wildness," makes The Maine Woods an especially vital book for our time. This edition presents Thoreau's fullest account of the wilderness as he intended it
