Edward Hoagland recommends the 1985 Library of America edition of Thoreau’s works, which includes all four of his books. Dover Publications published The Journal of Henry D. Thoreau in two volumes. As for biographies, Walter Harding’s The Days of Henry David Thoreau (Princeton and Dover) and Robert D. Richardson, Jr.’s Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind (California) are good.
