The Thoreau Edition Archives in the Thoreau Society Collections

ThoreauEdition logo

The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau, also known as the Princeton Edition and as the Thoreau Edition, was founded in 1966 as an attempt to recover the lost words of one of America's most influential writers and to answer the pressing need for a complete, definitive, annotated, and readily available edition of his writings, including his Journal and correspondence. The project is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, an independent federal agency. From time to time, archival material for completed volumes will be placed in the Thoreau Edition Archives in the Thoreau Society Collections at the Thoreau Institute.
