Product description

Published in 1918 by Tauchnitz, Vol. 4525 in their Collection of British Authors series. Bound in cream soft suede-like cover, with decorative details.

Originally published in 1860 this collection of Emerson's essays is named as one of the best, and one of the worst!

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

In good condition with an unusual cover which has some marks. Uncut side edges printed on lower quality 'War economy' paper which has become yellowed. Annotation in ink on title page.
