The various versions of the work on American Transcendentalism are all collated, scanned, and nearly edited and marked up for the web. The two pamphlet versions will be available later this week, but the three articles are online now:
- “Mr. Emerson and Transcendentalism.” American Whig Review (March 1845).
- “The Bhagvat Gheeta and the Doctrine of Immortality.” American Whig Review (September 1845).
- “Human Pantheism.” Spirit of the Age, I, 349.
The first two essay were condensed into the 1849 pamphlet Transcendentalism, which was further condensed into “Human Pantheism,” and then revised into the 1871 Transcendentalism, which was reprinted in 1872 in The Blazing Star (probably from the same plates) with one additional, final paragraph added.
A full bibliographic essay and content analysis is in preparation.
