"Both a historical recovery and a critical rethinking of the functions and practices of textbooks, Archives of Instruction: Nineteenth-Century Rhetorics, Readers, and Composition Books in the United States argues for an alternative understanding of our rhetorical traditions. Jean Ferguson Carr, Stephen L. Carr, and Lucille M. Schultz describe how the pervasive influence and sophistication of nineteenth-century literacy textbooks demonstrate the early emergence of substantive instruction in reading and writing."--BOOK JACKET
The essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson by Ralph Waldo Emerson ( Book )
9 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An amalgamation of two books published in 1841 and 1844, the 21 pieces known as "Essays: First and Second Series" describe Emerson's concepts of self-reliance, the law of compensation (a sort of yin-yang polarity in morality), and the transcendental Over-Soul, an ideal Emerson first enunciated (without naming it as such) in his infamous Divinity School Address, for which he was accused of atheism. "The world is not the product of manifold power, but of one will, of one mind; and that one mind is everywhere active," he said to Harvard's startled divinity students and teachers. "All things proceed out of the same spirit." In these essays, he expands upon this notion of the individual Self as part of a universal All, of the human soul bound by a physical body yet tethered to an omniscient spirit

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Following the success of his first series of essays, Emerson offered the public his insights into additional facets of the human condition... Best known for his essay on 'Nature', Emerson once again demonstrates a vision that is both down-to-earth and deeply numinous, giving the reader a host of new perspectives from which to view the mysteries and seeming contradictions of Existence." --Back cover
