Walden Manuscript Search Tool

The search tool is a work in progress. It is periodically updated as the Digital Thoreau editorial team continues to identify correspondences between the images and Thoreau’s text. In the future, we plan to create a mechanism for readers to help us with this work.

Use the table below to find one or more images from the digitized manuscript of Walden corresponding to a paragraph or sub-paragraph (“paragraph segment”) in Walden: A Fluid-Text Edition. Or go in the other direction, searching a manuscript image by number to discover where writing on the manuscript page may be found in the fluid-text transcription of the manuscript versions.

For example, typing “Eco-2b” (no quotation marks) in the search box reveals that content from “Economy,” paragraph segment 2b in the fluid-text edition may be found on at least four manuscript pages, one each from manuscript versions A and B, and two from version C. Each search result will show you two linked thumbnails you can use to visit an image. Thumbnails labeled “F” point to full-size images, which can take a while to load in your browser, even with a high-speed internet connection. Thumbnails labeled “H” point to images on the Huntington Library website, which load more quickly and are accompanied by metadata and other information. Thumbnails “F” and “H” for Image #8 point to the same manuscript page at full-size and on the Huntington site, respectively.

The dropdown just above the table will let you display up to 100 results per search.

If you type “125” in the search box, the top result reveals that this manuscript page is from Version A — the first manuscript version of Walden — and contains content from paragraphs 19b and 21c of the chapter, “Where I Lived, and What I Lived For.”

Below are detailed instructions for using the search tool, including an explanation of the manuscript image numbering system and the abbreviations used in the table.

Detailed instructions

Manuscript vs. fluid-text edition

The main purpose of the search tool is to enable you to compare the fluid-text edition with Thoreau’s own manuscript pages. The fluid-text edition is based on Ronald Clapper’s 1967 transcription of the manuscript. (See the edition’s “Introduction.”) Clapper’s transcription isn’t a diplomatic one — that is, Clapper didn’t attempt to represent the precise markings on a given manuscript surface but rather sought to provide a high-level view of insertions, cancellations, transpositions, and other changes. (For example, the transcription gives no indication of how a particular word was deleted — with a straight line, say, or a wavy one — and it doesn’t register where one line of writing ends and a new one begins. It does, however, indicate when text has been inserted in pencil as opposed to ink.) If you’re looking at a passage in the fluid-text edition and want to inspect the relevant manuscript surface or surfaces (possibly across multiple versions), the search tool can help you find what you’re looking for. Conversely, if you’re inspecting a manuscript surface and want to consult a transcription for help deciphering Thoreau’s handwriting or understanding his revisions, the search tool can help you get to the right location in the fluid-text edition.

Comparing the manuscript to the edition’s transcription, you’ll undoubtedly come across discrepancies. Some of these might arise from errors on Clapper’s part. (You’ve only to examine a few images of HM 924 to understand how easy it would have been for Clapper to omit a detail or misread a word, especially given that he didn’t have the luxury of enlarging high-resolution scans on a large computer monitor.) We’re developing a workflow for inviting readers to report errors of this kind that they believe they’ve found.

Other discrepancies may be the result of editorial decisions by Clapper that are entirely reasonable within the context of his aims. Above, we used paragraph segment 2b from “Economy” as an example of a passage to search for in our table. If you do, one of the results that will be returned to you is Image #9 from Version A. Yet if you consult the fluid-text edition, you’ll find that Clapper describes Economy 2b as first written in Version B, and you won’t find a paragraph segment marker for 2b in the column for Version A. Why not?

The question is best answered, perhaps, by first considering why the search table treats the page from Version A as one that includes content from 2b. In the excerpted region of Image #9 below, you can see that between the last word of 2a — “speaking” — and the first word of of 2c — “Perhaps” — Thoreau has held a place, as it were, for 2b with a penciled insertion consisting of a line drawn from the left margin, an inverted caret, and the words “I require &c.” We can’t tell at what point in his sequence of revisions Thoreau did this, or whether, in doing it, he was referencing the wording of 2b that we see in Version B or (as seems more likely), a passage from his journal, which he mined extensively for Walden content. In that passage, which dates from sometime between fall 1845 and winter 1846, Thoreau initially wrote, “I expect of any lecturer that he will read me a more or less simple & sincere account of his life–of what he has done & thought.” He then wrote “require” above the word “expect” without canceling either word (Journal 2: 1842-1848, ed. Robert Sattelmeyer [Princeton University Press, 1984], p. 141. The addition of “require” is reported in the Table of Alterations at the back of the volume; see 141.15 on p. 538.)

Because the placeholder insertion in Version A contains some of what would eventually become 2b — if only two words — our search tool treats Image #9 as containing 2b content.

Clapper made a different editorial decision, possibly judging the two-word placeholder, with its uncertain timing and provenance, as insufficient evidence to assert that 2b was “first written” in A. Again, the decision would be a reasonable one, consistent with his aims. The screen capture below (click on it to enlarge it) may provide a helpful visual summary of the foregoing explanation.

Accessing and identifying manuscript pages

There are two ways to access a given page of the Walden manuscript in the Huntington Library’s digital collection: through the viewer provided on the library’s website or at the underlying image file’s URL. For each image in HM924, the search tool provides a link to both the Huntington viewer and the URL for the underlying image file.

Two views of image number 8 - Huntington viewer and full-size URL
HM 924 Image #8 as it appears in the Huntington website’s viewer (left) and at the URL for the full-size image (right).

The full-size image files are large and can take quite a while to load in a browser, especially with a lower-speed internet connection. The Huntington viewer will load images much faster. Within the viewer, you can scroll to adjust the size of the image. The last entry in the list under each image’s “Item Description” is a link to a “IIIF image” for the item. This link is another way to access the image at full size. (More below on IIIF.)

In the Huntington viewer, you can also page forward and backward through the manuscript and examine image metadata.

Important: The page number that you’ll find in the column to the right of each image in the Huntington viewer corresponds to a page number in one of the seven bound volumes of HM924. These numbers are not the same as those in the leftmost column of the search tool. In the search tool, each image has been assigned a number based on the image’s URL, whether in the viewer or at the location of the full-size image. For example, the image identified as “p. 1” of Volume A on the Huntington site has the URL https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p16003coll16/id/8 and is identical to the full-size image at https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/iiif/p16003coll16/8/full/full/0/default.jpg. Note the “8” in each URL. In the search table, this is Image #8. (Note, too, that the number beneath the image in the viewer is 9. The numbers beneath the images do not necessarily correspond with the image numbers in the search table, either.

Image #8 as seen in the Huntington manuscript viewer. It is the ninth image in this volume and the first MS page in the volume.

In summary, the image numbers in the search table correspond reliably to the image URLs in both locations (Huntington, full-size), making them the best way to identify any particular image so as to make it findable in either location.

Finally, note that the numbers reflect the order in which images were scanned. Volume 7 (Version G) was scanned before Volume 6 (Version F), so the numbers for the later volume are lower than those for the earlier one. Again, the important point is that each number is a reliable identifier for that image at whatever location you’re viewing it.

Chapter abbreviations

The search tool uses the following abbreviations to represent the 18 chapters of Walden. Although the abbreviations contain upper- and lower-case letters, table searches are case-insensitive, so you’ll get the same result by typing “eco” as you would by typing “Eco.” When searching for all paragraph segments in a given chapter, you’ll likely want to include a hyphen in your search term so that, for example, your search for paragraph segments in “Where I Lived, and What I Lived For” doesn’t turn up rows that contain the word “will.” Searching for “WIL-” or “wil-” should get you the results you’re after.

  • Eco = Economy
  • WIL = Where I Lived, and What I Lived For
  • Rea = Reading
  • Sou = Sounds / [Railroad]
  • Sol = Solitude
  • Vis = Visitors
  • BeF = The Bean Field / [Beans]
  • Vil = The Village
  • Pon = The Ponds
  • BaF = Baker Farm
  • HL = Higher Laws / [Animal Food]
  • BN = Brute Neighbors / [Fall Animals]
  • HW = House-Warming
  • FIWV = Former Inhabitants; and Winter Visitors
  • WA = Winter Animals / [Animals]
  • PW = The Pond in Winter
  • Spr = Spring
  • Con = Conclusion

Examples of paragraph segments

  • Eco-2b = Economy, paragraph 2, segment 2b
  • Rea-2a = Reading, paragraph 2, segment 2a

Other abbreviations

  • NiW = Not in Walden
  • – = Not applicable or no data available yet
  • F = Full-size image
  • H = Image on the Huntington website

Using the Notes column

The Notes column of the search tool provides information about the contents and visible physical features of the pages and leaves shown in the images. Since the search tool is a work in progress, the absence of a note indicates only that the image of a page hasn’t yet been examined and annotated.

Frequently used categories of information are shown below, together with keywords you can use to search for them.

There are occasional notes about content that ended up in other works than Walden.

The abbreviation ChapLoc indicates the presence of a chapter title, title catchwords or catchphrases, and the start of chapter content in the manuscript. Searching for a particular passage in the manuscript is often easier if you can find the beginning of the chapter in which the passage is found.

Passages that the Digital Thoreau editorial team has focused on are likely to have detailed notes. For example, one of our ongoing projects is to construct a revision narrative for Thoreau’s description, in “Spring,” of the sand foliage at the Deep Cut. The core of this description is in “Spring” paragraphs 5 through 9, identified in the table as Spr-5 through Spr-9. If you search for these paragraph segments you’ll find extensive notes on sand foliage material in drafts A, F, and G.

Abbreviations used in Notes

  • AW = A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (Princeton UP, 1980)
  • BW = Beth Witherell
  • ChapLoc = locating information, such as a chapter title, that marks the beginning of a chapter
  • Cor 2 = Correspondence 2: 1849-1856 (Princeton UP, 2018)
  • LR = Later Revision to Journal MS
  • Not in Walden = text not located in Walden
  • np = no page number by Thoreau
  • PE = Princeton Edition
  • r = recto
  • rev = revised
  • T = Thoreau
  • v = verso

Working with IIIF images

The Huntington Library’s images of HM 924 use the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF, for short), an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery. The use of IIIF not only makes it possible for the Huntington to display each image, together with associated metadata, on its own site; it also enables scholars, teachers, and students to embed the images in their own digital projects. By using the IIIF syntax when pointing to an image, it’s possible to scale the image to a desired size, display only a particular region of the image, or rotate the image (for example, to make text written vertically in a page margin easier to read.)

Under the terms of the grant from the State University of New York that funded digitization of HM 924 and HM 925, written permission is not required to embed these images in your project, but you should be sure to provide attribution to the Huntington Library when you do so.

Complete information on the syntax for calling images via the IIIF API may be found on the IIIF website.

The basic template is as follows:

{scheme}://{server}{/prefix}/{identifier}/{region}/{size}/{rotation}/{quality}.{format}

For the Walden MS images, therefore, the following URL will bring up p. 1 of Walden Version A, which is Image #8 in the search table.

https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/iiif/p16003coll16/8/full/full/0/default.jpg

In the URL, the first full indicates the {region} and the second full indicates the {size}.

Thus, callinghttps://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/iiif/p16003coll16/8/full/pct:10/0/default.jpg will bring in the full page at 10% of its size:

Page 1 of A at 10%

Displaying a page region

To display a region of the image other than full, you can specify the coordinates of the region using absolute pixel values by replacing full with x,y,w,h where x = the number of pixels from the 0 position of the horizontal axis, y = the number of pixels from the 0 position of the vertical axis, w = the width of the region in pixels and h = the height of the region in pixels. (Note that the x,y coordinates 0,0 represent the upper left corner of the image, and that the upper left corner of the image is not the same as the upper left corner of the manuscript page, since the gray margin surrounding the page is part of the image.)

Thus, to display the bracketed and canceled passage on this page at 30% of its full size, we would want to call https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/iiif/p16003coll16/8/1150,6200,7000,2000/pct:30/0/default.jpg:

Page region

Determining the right coordinates for a region takes some finagling. If you download the image and open it in an image-viewing application such as Apple’s Preview, you should be able to get approximate coordinates. You can then pop the URL-with-coordinates into your browser’s location bar and, by repeatedly adjusting them and refreshing the browser, ascertain that you’re capturing the desired region.

Rotating images

To rotate an image region, replace the 0 with the desired rotation (e.g., 90 for 90 degrees).

For example, the URL https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/iiif/p16003coll16/434/800,737,1450,5870/pct:30/90/default.jpg will bring up the region with coordinates 800,737,1450,5870 on p. 1 of the B-C Version (Image #434 in the search table) rotated 90 degrees at 30%, making it easier to read what Thoreau has written vertically in the left margin:

11ANiWNot in Walden: related to a February 1, 1852, Journal entry that in turn is associated with T's essay "Life without Principle," delivered as lectures titled "What Shall It Profit?" and "Life Misspent," from Dec 6, 1854, through Sept 9, 1860. Brad Dean writes that the inception of LwP was an index of J passages headed "Art of Life" that T compiled in late October 1854 ("Reconstruction of T's Early 'LwP' Lectures," [SAR 1987, p. 288]). The Feb 1, 1852, J passages are revised in ink and pencil and have a vertical use mark drawn through them vertically in pencil. Evidence that this paragraph was added to this leaf after A was composed in 1846-47: 1) "how many in the last month have started for California" refers to the gold rush, which began in earnest in 1849. 2) relationship of contents to 1852 J entry, noted above. 3) first level of handwriting on recto is carefully spaced and runs on as part of a larger work, prob lecture, because written on one side of leaf; paragraph on verso stands alone, hand is looser, suitable for a note to self but not for reading from the lecture stage. T could have chosen this leaf (or this leaf with others) as he was compiling material for LwP because contents of recto also fit "Art of Life" theme. Perhaps in 1854 T added it to that material; if so, somewhere along the line of transmission someone (Sanborn? the dealer George Hellman?) sorted it in with the leaves of A. BW 5.27.20

Insertion: Interesting marking going on in the lower part of the page, where T recounts the fable of Momus. He revises his initial writing with interlineations and a passage written vertically in the left margin, then adds a large brace to the left of the passage. The point of the brace--two points, in fact-- appears on the preceding page, hm924v1n49. coming in from the right and positioning the passage below "is no house, and no house-keeper--" T's note "V Back" at the end of the passage reinforces the movement of the passage indicated by the brace. Then T cancels the entire pasage with large looping lines. (I judge that the three vertical marks in pencil that run the length of the page are later.) A version of the Momus material that incorporates revisions in this one begins on hm924v1n52 and concludes on hm924v1n53.

Material written vertically in left margin may be part of a draft of "Ktaadn," an essay about Thoreau’s first trip to the Maine woods that was published in five parts in John Sartain’s Union Magazine of Literature and Art, beginning with the July 1848 issue. Thoreau took this trip from August 31 to September 10, 1846, and he composed a draft of a lecture about it in his Journal starting in mid-September 1846. He delivered the lecture at the Concord Lyceum on January 3, 1848. Thoreau reused the leaf to draft Eco-100a, b, c. Physically, this leaf could be part of the Berg Journal (April 17- 1846-December 1846), which is missing 18 leaves (J2, p. 473) or more likely MS Volume [I] (Winter 1846-1846–Spring 1848), probably missing 130 leaves (J2, p. 474) or MS Volume II (Summer-Fall 1848–April 1850), which is missing 31 leaves at the beginning (J3, p. 502).

The material on these leaves was probably written in spring 1848 (see PE J2, p. 462-465). The sand foliage material begins on https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p16003coll16/id/1299 and continues on https://cdm16003.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p16003coll16/id/1008.
