Completion of editorial work and preparation for publication of Henry David Thoreau's Correspondence, comprising 3 volumes of letters from 1834 through 1861. (36 months)

The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau provides, for the first time, complete and accurate texts of Thoreau's Journal, correspondence, and writings for publication. This application requests support to complete and publish Correspondence 1: 1834-1848 (2012); bring Correspondence 2: 1849-1856 to within two months of publication (2014); and complete and submit to Princeton University Press the text and apparatus of Correspondence 3: 1856-1861 (2017). Letters are fully annotated and editorial work is documented in lists of alterations, emendations, and variants. Textual, historical, and general introductions contextualize the letters in each volume; indexes provide full access to texts and annotations. About half of the 648 letters included in Correspondence 1-3 either have not been published before, have not been collected before, or are newly based on manuscript sources, compared with the most recent edition, Walter Harding and Carl Bode's Correspondence of Henry David Thoreau (1958).
