Edited by H.G.O. Blake. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1888. 14 pp undated ads. Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled.
First Edition, which consisted of 1550 copies published actually in late 1887. This was the third of Thoreau's "four seasons," following EARLY SPRING (1881) and SUMMER (1884); curiously, Blake published WINTER before AUTUMN (1892), breaking the seasons' natural progression.~This is a just-about-fine copy (just a mere hint of wear at the tips); the dark green cloth remains clean, and the binding gilt remains bright. Borst A10.1.a; Blanck 20129. Item #13885
