A landmark of literary Americana, published and edited by Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, featuring Henry David Thoreau’s “Resistance to Civil Government” as well as other original works of Emerson, Hawthorne, and other important transcendentalist essays. Quite rare and valuable (only 50 original subscriptions), it was issued originally in wrappers, intended as a periodical, but lasted only one issue.
