Octavo. Original cream cloth for presentation, gilt titles to spine, gilt fern motif to front cover, brown endpapers, top edge gilt. Custom blue cloth slipcase and chemise. Bookplates of Arthur Swann (front) and George Brinkmann Ehlhardt (rear); also sometime in the library of William E. Stockhausen (1898–1974), New York collector, though without mark. Spine browned as usual, spine ends a little rubbed, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the author on May Day, "C. C. Shackford from R. W. Emerson. 1 May 1867." This is one of approximately 100 copies in the cream cloth binding for presentation. An excellent association: Charles Chauncy Shackford (1815–1891), Emerson's fellow Harvard graduate in the class of 1835, taught at the Concord Academy and was one of the early professors of English literature at Cornell; he appears a number of times in Emerson's Journal and correspondence. May-Day and Other Pieces is Emerson's second book of poetry, after the 1847 Poems, and his last significant work before his health declined in the 1870s. BAL 5374. N° de ref. de la librería 109694
