Spirit of America Bookstore's American Transcendentalism Movement Page
"Transcendentalism was the New England movement of the 1830s and 1840s that brought together Romanticism in
literature and social reform in politics. Its partisans argued for the rights of women, the abolition of slavery, and, in some
cases, the socialization of labor and equal distribution of profits. They were America’s first avant-garde."

Collected Works of Horatio Alger in Kindle format from Halcyon Press (showing the stamp here cuz the Kindle cover is just plain UGLY!)  "The Collected Works of Horatio Alger: 57 Novels Complete in One Volume (Unexpurgated Edition)" for Kindle [2009]
Kindle Edition from Halcyon Classics [7/2009] for $1.99 {sic}
Halcyon Press usually does a good job with their 'Complete Works for Kindle'; this one includes 57 novels by Horatio Alger (which they list) but there is no information about the remaining 78 or so books – so the word 'Collection' is important. (And then Halcyon also sells Collected Works of Horatio Alger totalling 58 books in four volumes for the Nook over at Barnes & Noble!)
