This copy inscribed on the half title page: "For Waring Jones -- / about a man of my own stamp. / Sincerely, / August Derleth." "Thoreau's vision is one which ought to make an irresistible appeal to the young. No mentally alive young man or woman can read WALDEN and come away from it willing to accept readily the common conventions of the world or the shabby goals set for the mass of men by their materialistic society." - August Derleth. Wilson 618. A fine, fresh, unread copy in fine dust jacket priced $3.50 on the front flap with a small surface rub to the spine panel. A lovely copy. (#164341).
