The Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson

£19.99

Product description

Ralph Waldo Emerson 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.

The book is one of "The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written", a series published by The Easton Press. It contains a critical introduction by Edward F. O'Day and the first and second series of essays by Emerson.

The volume is attractively bound in light brown leather on heavy duty boards with raised spine bands; it has a gilt stamped scrollwork design on the front, back and spine, gilded text block edges, a sewn binding, a silk reading ribbon, pink-coloured moiré fabric end sheets, and is printed on acid-neutral paper. A new bookplate is loose inside.

The book is in crisp unread condition and would make an ideal gift.
