Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson. With preface - DOVES PRESS. EMERSON, Ralph Waldo. - 1906. 
Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1906. One of 300 copies on paper, there were a further 25 on vellum. Printed in red and black. Pp. 312. Small 4to., original limp vellum, spine lettered in gilt. An extremely good, fresh copy with only a slight crease on the spine from opening. With the green leather and gilt booklabel of Alex. M. Hudnut which has slight offset on the free endpaper. Cobden-Sanderson had met Emerson when he visited London in the 1860s and clearly he had made quite an impression. He saw him as 'a pinnacle of a man' and, as Tidcombe asserts, 'Cobden-Sanderson was attracted ot Emerson's idealism, and to the hint of mysticism that coloured his view of nature'. The essays printed here are 'History', 'Self-Reliance', 'Compensation', 'Spiritual Laws', 'Love', 'Friendship', 'Prudence', 'Heroism', 'The Over-Soul', 'Circles', 'Intellect' and 'Art'.
