5 Emerson, R.W. Ralph Waldo. Poems.

Boston: James Munroe, 1847. First edition (Myerson, A18.2.a, second issue; the first issue held a four leaf publisher's catalogue in the front. The first three printings were indistinguishable). Bound with: Lowell, James Russell. "The Vision of Sir Launfal". Cambridge: George Nichols, 1848. First edition (BAL 13069).

Duncan (see Rusk and Tilton, volumes IV through X) in the front of each title, dated May, 1849 in the Emerson and Dec. 27, 1848 in the Lowell. Rebecca Duncan (1826-1908) was a school teacher for fifty years; she participated in several reform movements - her anti-slavery activities brought her in contact with Emerson, Whittier, and Theodore Parker. Her sister married Elbridge Gerry Dudley, also reform minded, who was an assistant to Theodore Parker in the last several years of his life. Dudley worked with Emerson on setting up lecture engagements for "The Parker Fraternity" at the Boston Music Hall. Miss Duncan briefly wrote a column in the 1890's called "Theodore Parker's Bettina" in the Boston Evening Transcript. She was intimate with Laura Bridgman, blind and deaf, who became world famous for the education she received in the 1840's under Samuel Gridley Howe at the Perkins Institution for the Blind, forty years before Helen Keller. With at least six penciled annotations by Miss Duncan, and ticks and underlinings throughout. Deft repairs to the leather, endpapers soiled. A pretty, Very Good copy.
