17 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late summer of 1839, Thoreau and his older brother John made a two-week boat-and-hiking trip from Concord, Massachusetts, to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. After John's sudden death in 1842, Thoreau began to prepare a memorial account of their excursion. He wrote two drafts of this story at Walden Pond, which he continued to revise and expand until 1849, when he arranged for its publication at his own expense. The book's heterodoxy and apparent formlessness troubled its contemporary audience. Modern readers, however, have come to see it as an appropriate predecessor to Walden, with Thoreau's story of a river journey depicting the early years of his spiritual and artistic growth

The Maine woods by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 23 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

Cost recovery for water services and the polluter pays principle by William L Howarth( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper considers the general rationale for cost recovery pricing in respect of water services and examines the specific provision that is made for this, and related obligations, in Article 9 of the European Community Water Framework Directive. Despite guidance drawn from the Common Implementation Strategy, uncertainties remain, particularly with regard to the need to recover environmental and resource costs and how account should be taken of the polluter pays principle. Given the intractable character of these difficulties, it is suggested that the some of the practical outcomes and environmental benefits of implementation are speculative."--Editor
