Thoreau's Journal: 3-Apr-1853

The last two Tribunes I have not looked at. I have no time to read newspapers. If you chance to live and move and have your being in that thin stratum in which the events which make the news transpire,—thinner than the paper on which it is printed,—then these things will fill the world for you; but if you soar above or dive below that plane, you cannot remember nor be reminded of them.

Are you aware of any publisher that is currently printing Thoreau's journal other than Dover?

Dover is asking $95 per volume (2 total volumes) for what would seem to me is about a $40 book.
