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

13 editions published between 1866 and 1892 in English and held by 242 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
The Maine woods by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

6 editions published in 1864 in English and held by 174 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

2 editions published between 1873 and 2011 in English and held by 2 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
