". . . My entire success, such as it is, is composed wholly of particular failures. . . ."
       A limited edition printed by the Riverside Press containing Ralph Waldo Emerson's reflections on success both at the personal and a national level. Like many of Emerson's essays, "Success" was originally a lecture, in this case, given by the philosopher in 1858; it didn't appear as in print until 1870. The introduction is provided by American editor and writer Ferris Greenslet.
        This is no. 146 of the 540 numbered copies printed by the Riverside Press. The prospectus and order form are laid in.
        Provenance: On the front free endpaper, the pressure stamp of Robert M. Parmlee from Bennington, VT. Most recently from the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Publisher's dark teal boards and white shelfback, gilt lettering to spine and front board, fore-edge deckled; spine darkened, tiny hole to front joint, boards lightly faded with a few tiny scuffs. Small stain to fore-edge. A satisfying volume in content and condition.  (38389)   Please RESHELVE This.
