8275p. Thoreau, Henry David. CAPE COD. Boston.1893.

8275p. Thoreau, Henry David. CAPE COD . Boston . 1893. 336p. Riverside Edition Vol. IV. Embossed cloth binding. Anyone who truly enjoys reading of the life of a Lighthouse Keeper, or the charm of Cape Cod, should surely read Thoreau’s account of his visit with the Keeper of Cape Cod Light, and his walk from Eastham to Provincetown in 1849 and again in 1855. In this renown work Thoreau records his adventures and sights as he trekked the outer beaches and the humor of the local, self-reliant folk. This is a truly important account, and a must if you are interested in the shipwrecks, lighthouses, life-saving and life as it existed for residents of the outer Cape . Clean, tight, front endpaper missing, hinges intact but weakening. (VG-). $72.
