WRITINGS OF H. D. THOREAU.

His power of observation seemed to indicate additional senses. He saw as with microscope, heard as with ear-trumpet; and his memory was a photographic register of all he saw and heard. - R. W. EMERSON.

Their enchantment never palls upon the sense: they charm the reader into love of the scene, if not of the writer, and fill his memory with sweet and pleasant images of the beauty and mystery of Nature. GEORGE RIPLEY, in New York Tribune.
