Comments: The author's first book, published at his own expense in an edition of 1000 copies. Four years after publication, Thoreau wrote in his journal, "For a year or two past my publisher...has been writing...to ask what disposition should be made of the copies a "A Week" still on hand...so I had them all sent to me here...They are something more substantial than fame, as my back knows, which has borne them up two flights of stairs... I now have a library of nearly 900 volumes, over 700 of which I wrote myself." The one page ad announcing the forthcoming publication of "Walden" is present.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
