General note

Note to readers: Generally, only original autograph manuscripts by authors other than Ralph Waldo Emerson are included in this section. But some early or contemporary transcripts (e.g. Ossoli, of Allston's sonnets and transcripts by members of the Emerson family) have also been included. Some modern transcripts which normally would go into section VI (e.g. Bourchier's poem) have been included in this section because they had originally been singled out and cataloged under their authors' names rather than those of the transcribers. For modern transcripts (e.g. Tolman's of Mary Moody Emerson's Almanac ), see part B of this section, p. 125.
