MA 1302.1 is an 1841 transcription of Thoreau's original journal. Thoreau originally began his journal in two large volumes, of 546 and 396 pages respectively. These first two original volumes were transcribed into four smaller journals by Thoreau after 31 January 1841 (possibly in October-November 1841). Neither of the two original volumes is extant, although a few scattered leaves from the first and Thoreau's partial indexes to both volumes survive. MA 1302.1 and MA 1302.2 (p. 1-73) are Thoreau's 1841 transcription of the first volume of the original journal.--Cf. Broderick.
Part of a collection of 39 journals written by Thoreau between 1837 and 1861. Journals are described in 39 individual records.
