      Petersham, MA: The Lone Oak Press, 2005. Number 39 of 70 signed and numbered copies. There were also 14 deluxe copies with an extra set of prints and an original block. This beautiful production from master printmaker, Abigail Rorer, is a tribute to Henry David Thoreau and his celebration of the wonders of nature. In Ms. Rorer's description of her book, she says that "woodland pools, spring-holes, and ditches are all terms used by Thoreau to describe vernal pools; ephemeral springtime wetlands that often dry up in the summer and are vital breeding habitats for many species ranging from wood frogs, spadefoot toads, spotted salamanders....In New England these pools are an important part of the landscape that the rites of spring. The book comprises selected entries from Thoreau's Journal for the months of March, April, and May [1853] to give a sense of the awakening spring and teeming life...at this time of year. Thoreau puts so beautifully into words what one woud see, hear, and feel when out in nature at this time of the year." The enlightening introduction is written by renowned Thoreau scholar, Bradley P. Dean. Accompanying the text are twenty-eight marvelous wood-engravings, some with hand-coloring, by Ms. Rorer. They are based on the landscape and pools that Thoreau explored. The book was designed and printed by Michael Russem of Kat Ran Press on Zerkall Book in Baskerville type. Barbara Blumenthal bound the book in quarter brown morocco leather with marbled paper by Iris Nevins for the covers. Housed in a grey-green cloth clamshell box with the same marbled paper on the edges and spine. The result of the collaboration of these book artists is this stunning edition. 92 pages. PRI/010311.
