Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1977. FIRST EDITION. Fine cloth volume in fine dust jacket. 210 pages with index. "On September 19, 1836, Ralph Waldo Emerson and some of his friends gathered at the home of George Ripley for an evening of serious conversation. In addition to Emerson and Ripley, this first meeting of the Transcendentalist Club included Amos Bronson Alcott, James Freeman Clarke, Frederic Henry Hedge, and Convers Francis. It was an auspicious hour for America's intellectual future. In the course of the next century and a half, the movement these men began would be studied as economics, aesthetics, philosophy, literature, even ecology. But surprisingly few scholars would confront their thought in the terms the Transcendentalists had formulated it - as a religion. This book is meant to do just that." -- from the jacket.
