Arago: 3-cent Emerson

3-cent Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) appears on the 3-cent Famous American Authors stamp issued February 5, 1940. Emerson was a leading light among the transcendentalists, a primarily New England-centered group which strove to combine religion, philosophy, and nature in a uniquely American body of literature. Among Emerson's many essays were "Nature" and "Self-Reliance."
