Excerpt

The greater portion of the material presented in this volume was delivered as lectures on the Vanuxem Foundation at Princeton University in March 1931. I wish to take this opportunity of expressing my appreciation of the many courtesies of the University, with which I once had the honor of being associated.

For permission to quote from Emerson Works and Journals, I am indebted to his authorized publishers, the Houghton Mifflin Company. For the privilege of examining the hitherto unpublished manuscripts of Emerson, I owe thanks to the present representatives of his family, particularly to Edward Waldo Forbes and to Raymond Emerson.

The frontispiece portrait is reproduced from a lithograph recently made by the Forbes Lithograph Company of Boston. It was redrawn from a very small tintype of Emerson apparently taken about the middle of the eighteen-fifties. I am particularly grateful to the Forbes Lithograph Company for their kind permission to reproduce it.
