Kelly, it was an okay read but ultimately disappointing. If you click on the linked title in my books read list it will take you to my review of it. John, I'm hoping the book has been checked out since the last date stamp and that card has either gone missing or the library used a different system. It's too sad to think no one has checked the book out for over 60 years. Litlove, nothing has been proven on the mushroom usage, but there is no telling what he did on his solitary nature walks :) Heh, Dorothy, if you're going to have an invocation you may as well include everybody! Iliana, my library has all electronic check out now but they have left the cards in all the books which makes for great hsitorical fun. LK, it is fun imagining what all those other readers must have thought and felt and since there are ten volumes of journals, I wonder if they kept going or stopped at the first one?

I really like the fact that the book has been around so long, handled and thumbed through by so many readers. Very poetic. Fitting for your Emerson reading, somehow.

I think you are going to be in for a treat! I'm so surprised though that the book still has the library card. Do the books in your library still have those? Our public library doesn't have those any more. Some of the older books may have the pockets but not the cards. I miss the cards.

Emerson was really covering his bases in that last quotation, wasn't he? It's too bad about the editing the family did, but those journals sound fascinating.

Oh the fairyland bit is priceless. Are we absolutely sure that Emerson didn't use recreational mushrooms from his nature walks as a teenager??
