By the Same Author.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: His Life, Writings, and Philosophy.

With Fine Portrait on Steel. $2.00. “The religiousness of Emerson and his ethical grandeur shine forth in this volume upon almost every page.”. Christian Register.

“A mere thread of personal biography runs through the chapters, and along this is strung the history of Emerson's writings and addresses.” – New York Tribune.

“In all respects an admirable book. The first fourteen chapters tell about the ancestry, the circumstances, the practical labors of the man; while the last twelve furnish a masterly exposition of his intellectual and spiritual achieve. ments. We cannot conclude without a word of admiration for the engraved portrait. All those who have never had the good fortune to behold in the life the unusual blending of sweetness and force which Mr. Emerson's face presents will find here a most correct delineation." - The Critic.

and Philosophy. With Fine Portrait of George Eliot. $2.00.

“Mr. Cooke brings to his work the most inexhaustible and painstaking patience, the most thorough devotion to the labor he has undertaken, and the deepest mental sympathy with George Eliot's processes, as he understands them." - Boston Courier. Sent postpaid, on receipt of price, by the publishers, TICKNOR & CO., BOSTON.
