Books by John Burroughs

      Most of John Burroughs' works were originally essays published as magazine articles. These were later assembled into books. William Perkins has done the most complete job of cataloguing the articles and discussing different editions of Burroughs' books. He has put this information online at johnburroughs.org. Scans of the works as magazine articles are available at Cornell University. The books below represpresent the Riverby Edition, one of several nearly identical collections of Burroughs' writing. In addition to the Riverby edition are included books which never made it into the collected writings and books published posthumously.
