Excerpt from Through the Year With Thoreau: Sketches of Nature From the Writings of Henry D. Thoreau, With Corresponding Photographic Illustrations
Variety has been sought, first of all, in the selection of subjects, though obviously many of Thoreau's favorite themes could not be included, - being be yond the scope of the camera, such as the music of the telegraph harp, the crowing of Chanticleer, the fragrance of sweet-fern, the chirping of crickets, the avor of Wild apples, the z-ing of locusts, etc. In the arrangement of subjects the course of the seasons has been followed, although it has not been possible always to keep an exact succession of dates.
The quotations are chie y from the Journal, the page numbers referring to the Walden Edition of 1906. It has not been deemed necessary to indicate in every case where an ellipsis occurs. The journal being largely a commonplace-book, Thoreau would occasionally interject comments quite remote from the subject in hand; and therefore, in order to secure greater simplicity and conciseness, sometimes a brief portion of the original journal entry is here omitted. In two or three instances, also, a very slight verbal alteration has been made.
