About this Item

no date, presumed circa 1802. Pamphlet, apparently disbound from a larger work. Lacking any original wraps that may have been issued. 24 pp. Last page bears an 'Ode for the Anniversary of American Independence, July 4th, 1802,' by a citizen of Boston. A speech reflecting on the origin of the United States of America, asserting that the original colonists were in a sense 'free men' due to their industriousness, moral character, and hopes to establish a new life from that of the one in England. Emerson reflects on the growing sentiment for independence, as well as the Revolutionary War and establishment of the U.S. government, including the philosophy and principles behind its establishment. William Emerson was a Unitarian minister in the Boston area, as well as the father of Ralph Waldo Emerson. GOOD+ condition. Remains of binding present along the spine. Previous owner's signature along the lower title page (front page). Minor scattered foxing. Some browning along the extremities. See Sabin 22465 for a record of this title (among others by Emerson).
