Brown cloth over boards with titles in gilt on spine. Edge, corner and surface wear with boards showing at a couple of corners. Old but light stain of some sort slightly darkens upper half of front (see scan). Small areas of damage on spine edges. Former owners' names in pencil on first two free endpapers. Also, Emerson's name is written in pencil under his printed name on the title page. This is not Emerson's autograph but something done by one of the former owners. There seems to be have been a third free endpaper which has been removed. The book is square and the binding is secure with no tears or parting. Some of the first few signatures are pulled forward slightly which seems to have been a common printing problem with this issue. ; Emerson's Writings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 288 pages; I am unsure of the printing; none is indicated, but the date is the year after the first. Some printings are listed in later copies.
