On the front paste down is a very handsome, one inch square, black leather book plate of Burton Currie. The hinges and joints are tight and strong and the contents are free of any tanning or foxing. Edited by H. G. O. Blake. 439 pages including an index followed by a 14 page advertisement from Houghton Mifflin. This was the third of Thoreau's "four seasons" which followed Early Spring and Summer.
