Thoreau

Interesting find from our public library book sale: a 1960 collection of Thoreau's insights on nature and mankind. Having Thoreau distilled into a more digestible form (I liked Walden but thought it dragged and meandered too much) is nice enough, but I also really like the format. Though short in length (for which a publisher might have simply just settled for paperback), it's a compact hardcover with lovely illustrations opening each section. It's not particularly valuable (I've seen online prices starting at five bucks) but still a welcomed addition to my collection.
