Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson

DSCN4409

This well-loved copy of the Collected Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson in One Volume was purchased at Village Antiques & Collectibles in Successunna, NJ. I can’t find a publishing date anywhere on the book, but it’s likely Walter J. Black Inc.’s 1925 edition. Emerson’s classic essays Nature (1836) and The American Scholar (1837) encouraged an explosion of uniquely American literature and made appreciating nature cool again.
