This volume has three parts.  One part is Henry Thoreau's classical essay, or excursion, "Autumnal Tints," written as he lay dying.  The second part is a suite of watercolors by the contemporary artist Lincoln Perry, on one of Thoreau's great themes, the glorious color of autumn seen through an insistence that "surely joy is the condition of life."  The third part is a biographical and critical sketch of Thoreau's engagement with autumn and his coming to see it as a time, not of death and decay, but of ripeness, harvest, and new life springing from old.
Hard Cover, 127 pp, 5 x 7 inch format.  First Edition, published September, 2012.
A truly extraordinary book for yourself or as a gift for a friend or loved one.
