First edition, edited by Sophia Thoreau and W.E. Channing.
The first three chapters appeared in Putnam's magazine 1853 under the title of "Excursion to Canada".
"Prayers" was attributed to Thoreau by mistake, only a prayer in verse included being his. The essay itself, first published in the Dial, is by Emerson and is now published in his Natural history of the intellect.
