Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Like its predecessors volume three of Emerson's Complete Sermons is a model of accuracy and textual editing. Like them also the last third ('Textual Notes') includes Emerson's revisions, cancellations, supplements and related documents--all requiring great editorial patience. We owe a large debt to the team of scholars under the captaincy of Albert J. von Frank for ushering into print, after a century and a half in limbo, this block of important manuscripts."--American Renaissance Literary Report
