"Began as a lecture entitled "The Wild, " which Thoreau gave at the Concord Lyceum on April 1851. The lecture was a success, and he delivered it on several subsequent occasions. Finally, it was published as an essay in the Atlantic Monthly not long after Thoreau's death in 1862"--Review
Civil disobedience by Henry David Thoreau( )

89 editions published between 1849 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disgusted by slavery and the Mexican War, Thoreau gave lectures on, 'The Rights and Duties of the Individual in relation to Government', which became the basis for this 1849 essay originally titled, 'Resistance to Civil Government'. Cited by both Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. as influential in their drive to create positive change through nonviolent means, Thoreau's essay is just as applicable today as people search for their own role in making society better." -- Introduction, page [3]
The Maine woods by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

204 editions published between 1864 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 3,883 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
A week on the Concord and Merrimack rivers ; Walden, or, Life in the woods ; The Maine woods ; Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

34 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry David Thoreau wrote four full-length works, collected here in a single volume. Interweaving natural observation, personal experience, and historical lore, they reveal his brilliance not only as a writer, but as a naturalist, scholar, historian, poet, and philosopher. "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" is based on a boat trip taken with his brother from Concord, Massachusetts to Concord, New Hampshire. "Walden" is at once a personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, manual of self-reliance, and masterpiece of style. "The Maine Woods" and "Cape Cod" portray landscapes changing irreversibly even as he wrote. The first combines close observation of the unexplored Maine wilderness with a far-sighted plea for conservation; the second is a brilliant and unsentimental account of survival on a barren peninsula in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay." --

Collected poems of Henry Thoreau by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

82 editions published between 1843 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ralph Waldo Emerson once described Henry Thoreau's poetry as "the purest strain, and the loftiest, I think, that has yet pealed from this unpoetic American forest." Not always thus esteemed, Thoreau's verses were by no means ignored. Bronson Alcott applauded them; James Russell Lowell asserted their rawness; Nathaniel Hawthorne grudgingly approved them. As author of Walden and Civil Disobedience, Thoreau the writer of prose is world-renowned, but Thoreau the poet has been all but forgotten. This collection has all of Thoreau's original verse--the glowing lines and the quiet, the prosaic and the Transcendental. And all have at the very least the large, astringent force of young genius

Thoreau presents information about the "'unnoticed wild berry whose beauty annually lends a new charm to some wild walk, '" along with what "may be considered Thoreau's last will and testament, in which he protests our desecration of the landscape, reflects on the importance of preserving wild space 'for instruction and recreation, ' and envisions a new American scripture."--Jacket
Civil disobedience : resistance to civil government by Henry David Thoreau( )

9 editions published between 1849 and 2012 in English and held by 1,689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thoreau wrote Civil Disobedience in 1849. It argues the superiority of the individual conscience over acquiescence to government. Thoreau was inspired to write in response to slavery and the Mexican-American war. He believed that people could not be made agents of injustice if they were governed by their own consciences
Civil disobedience, and other essays by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

96 editions published between 1887 and 2017 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosopher, naturalist, poet and rugged individualist, Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) has inspired generations of readers to think for themselves, to follow the dictates of their own conscience and to make an art of their lives. This representative sampling of his thought includes five of his most frequently cited and read essays: "Civil Disobedience," his most powerful and influential political essay, exalts the law of conscience over civil law. "Life without Principle" distills the essence of Thoreau's philosophy of self-reliance and individualism. "Slavery in Massachusetts" is a searing attack on government condonation of slavery. "A Plea for Captain John Brown" is an eloquent defense of the radical abolitionist, while "Walking" celebrates the joys of that activity and pleads for conservation of the earth's wild places. The latter essay is recognized as one of the pioneer documents in the conservation and national park movement in America

A Yankee in Canada, with Anti-slavery and reform papers by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

102 editions published between 1865 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around 1,500 copies of this first edition of Thoreau?s work exist today. While "A Yankee in Canada" is an interesting and valuable account of Thoreau?s trip to the north, the true value of this book lies in the second half among the "Anti-Slavery and Reform Papers." It is the first time that Thoreau?s essay "Civil Disobedience" was published in book form. Thoreau was a lifelong abolitionist who refused any government that supported the institution of slavery. He held that the best government is the one that governs the least. A government of the majority does not make it right because a majority does not guarantee morality. "Civil Disobedience" has inspired countless people through history, including some of the world?s greatest moral leaders like Mahatma Ghandi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President John F. Kennedy
