Long Description

“A gorgeous edition” (Boston Globe) of Thoreau’s classic work, enhanced with an illuminating essay and beautiful watercolors.

Originally delivered as a lecture shortly before the writer’s own death, Henry David Thoreau’s classic “Autumnal Tints” is an ode to autumn not as the season of death and decay, but of ripeness, fullness, and maturity. It is perhaps the best piece ever written on the subject of the fall color of the changing leaves. Thoreau hoped one day to turn it into an illustrated book called “October, or Autumnal Tints.”

Thoreau’s astute meditations are framed by a biographical essay by acclaimed scholar Robert D. Richardson that delves into the events and relationships influencing Thoreau’s philosophy. Sensuous watercolors by Lincoln Perry bring to life the fall colors described so ecstatically by Thoreau, allowing longtime Thoreau fans and leaf-peepers alike to feel as though they are walking among the falling leaves alongside one of our best observers of the natural world.
