        Faust im Gewande der Zeit. Ein Schattenspiel mit Licht.

      im Literarischen Museum [d.i. Ph. Reclam], Leipzig 1831 - 160 S. Schlichter Halblederband d.Zt. Etwas berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen. Erste Ausgabe (Thode 1831.6; Goedeke X,381;39; Henning, Faust-Bibliographie III,273; Reclam-Gesamtverzeichnis 1831/ 05.) – Papierbedingt gebräunt, Außenbll. in den Ecken leimschattig, zeitgenöss. Initialen „P-P“ a.d. Titel und „P“ an S.5. Eine der seltensten Schriften des politischen Abenteurers und Schriftstellers. HARRO HARRING (Ibenshof bei Husum 1798 – 1870 Jersey) „führte vielleicht von allen Schriftstellern des Jahrhunderts das unstäteste Wanderleben.“ (Goedeke). Die Faust-Satire entstand 1829 noch in Polen, wo er am Kampf der Polen gegen die russischen Besatzer teilnahm. In späteren Jahren bezeichnete er sie als „Fragment“ und benannte sie in „Mantelkragen des verlornen Faust“ um, was keine praktische Auswirkung hatte, da die vorliegende die einzige Ausgabe geblieben ist. Dass nach GOETHEs Fassung des Faust-Stoffes jeder Text, der sich auf diesen bezieht, ohne angemessene gedankliche Tiefe und literarische Ausführung verfehlt ist, fühlte HARRING wohl und drückte dies verklausuliert in einer Anmerkung zu dem Druck der „Bruchstücke aus dem ‚verlornen Faust’“ (ein umfangreicher Monolog Fausts) aus: „. – Obiger ‚Faust’ war als ein Ganzes ausgeführt, ging aber größtentheils im Manuscripte verloren und außer jenem Fragment fanden sich nur noch diese Blätter, welche wir zur Rechtfertigung des Verfassers mittheilen, der selbst gar wohl fühlt, daß er nur Bruchstücke eines Faust liefern kann.“. HARRINGs Faust behält als origineller, authentischer Beitrag zur politischen Literatur der aufgewühlten Zeit seinen Wert. Die nachträgliche Relativierung ist ein Beleg für sein stetes Leiden an der wohl erkannten Diskrepanz zwischen Anspruch und Ausführung. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Russia-America, A.D. 1830. Correspondence relative to the Corvette Kensington, which was dismasted , and nearly lost in 1830, with the Russian Minister Plenipotentiary, Baron Krudener, and several officers of the Imperial Navy on Board

      np 1831 - Sole edition. 16 pp. 16mo. "You have imparted new lustre to the commercial character of the United States" Very rare. A collection of correspondence relating to the rescue of the Russian covette Kensington by the American schooner Superior en route to the Pacific to hunt seals. Captain Conger who led the rescue and broke orders reports the incident thus:"I fell in with the Russian corvette, Kensington, dismasted, with ten feet of water in her hold, having on board, as passengers, Baron Krudener, the Russian minister, . I was induced to return by making this contract with Baron Krudener: - that you should receive any sum you demanded, to the amount of ten thousand dollars, as a compensation ."Far from holding Krudener to the bargain, Burrows - owner of the Superior - refused to accept compensation, "knowing that you will repay the same, if chance should place any of my suffering countrymen within your reach." The correspondence includes letters from Baron Krudener, Silas Enoch Burrows, Secretary of State Martin van Buren - who conveyed the details of the incident to the President, and Samuel Hicks.This pamphlet was almost certainly compiled by Burrows, as there is one passage written in the first person regarding the reply to one of his letter. Burrows produced a full length account of this incident in 1865, this preceeds it by some measure. That it is in the original gilt-edged wrappers suggests that this pamphlet was produced in a small edition for presentation only as a tribute to the amicable resolution of the incident.

        A Dictionary of the English Language. Reprinted by E. H. Barker. from a copy communicated by the author, and containing many manuscript corrections and additions: with an appendix by the editor.

      London: Black, Young, and Young, 1831-32 - Two volumes, quarto (267 × 208 mm). Contemporary full calf recently rebacked to style, two-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplates of Edward Weyman Wadeson (1792-1884), a notary public in Doctors' Commons and a vice-president of the Foundling Hospital. A few scrapes to bindings, vertical crease to title page of volume II. An attractive copy. Printed in triple-columns. First UK edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "[T]he book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (PMM). The dictionary's English editor was the classical scholar Edmund Henry Barker (1788-1839), who carried on a lengthy correspondence with Webster. PMM 291.

        Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus

      Colburn & Bentley, 1831. 1st edition with frontispiece illustration, 3rd edition overall. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Half-leather binding with matching corner pieces, marbled boards and endpapers, a little eroding to corners and along spine folds, gilt spine title and decoration, all in very good condition. 202 pages + xii prelims. From the Gladstone library at Fasque, near Aberdeen, evidenced by the Fasque bookplate on the fpd (William Gladstone, when Prime Minister, often stayed at Fasque). The 1831 edition is notable for three reasons: the frontispiece is the first depiction of the monster; the book contains Mary Shelley's introduction, written at the request of the publishers to explain the origin and gestation of her story; and after her revisions to the text this is now regarded as the standard edition. Very clean pages, tissue guard over engraved title page. A very nice, stand-alone copy of Shelley's famous novel.

He was such a Francophile that he was known as "El Afrancesado." While president of Bolivia he reformed the legal system along French lines and introduced a series of codes based on the Code Napoleon.

        A Compendious History of the Cotton-Manufacture; with a disproval of the claim of Sir Richard Arkwright to the invention of its ingenious machinery.

      FIRST EDITION of the earliest history of the cotton industry. Although it is heavily biased in favour of the claims of Kaye and Highs as the true inventors of Arkwright?s cotton machinery, the book is nevertheless a key source of information on both Arkwright and other contemporary figures, on the machinery itself, and on the social changes wrought by the huge growth in the industry brought about by mechanisation.The lithographed plates, which are early examples of lithography, show the old methods of weaving, and the engraved plates are a fine series of detailed views of the new machinery.Loosely inserted is a 2-page (and conjugate blank) printed circular produced by Marriott & Rogers, dated at Liverpool, 1st January 1831, detailing imports of cotton through Liverpool, Glasgow and London between 1819 and 1830, with a detailed analysis of the figures.Large 4to, 2 leaves, pp. (3)-70, (3), and 12 plates (3 lithographed and 9 engraved). Original blue-grey boards (new matching paper spine and printed label), uncut. Boards a little soiled, some minor foxing, but a very good copy.

Santa Cruz was the President of Peru in 1827, then divided into the states of North and South-Peru, President of Bolivia from 1829 to 1839 and the Supreme Protector of the short-lived Peru-Bolivian Confederation (1836-1839), which he established. He was such a Francophile that he was known as "El Afrancesado." While president of Bolivia he reformed the legal system along French lines and introduced a series of codes based on the Code Napoleon. These codes, including the 1831 Bolivian criminal code, are among the earliest codes produced in post-colonial Latin America. The 1875 code is a reprinting of a heavily revised version of Santa Cruz's code adopted in 1862. OCLC locates 5 copies of the 1831 code, 1 in North America (at LA County Law Library), 1 copy of the 1873 code (at the National Library of Chile).

        Birmingham, the Winner of the Great St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster, 1830 68 Subscribers - 28 Started. By Filho da Puta, dam Miss Craigie by Orville.The Property of Mr. Beardsworth, To whom this Print by Permission is most respectfully dedicated by the Publishers, J.F. Herring and S. & J. Fuller

      London & Doncaster: J.F. Herring and S. & J. Fuller, 1831. Colour-printed aquatint by R.G. Reeve, finished by hand and heightened with gum arabic. An excellent impression in fine condition. Image size: 11 3/4 x 16 5/16 inches. A fine print from the 'Winners of the Great St. Leger Series': a 'benchmark' sporting print in terms of the "quality of painting, engraving and printing" (Lane) John Frederick Herring, senior "was born in Surrey in 1795... [He] spent the first eighteen years of his life in the city of London, where his father, an American whose parents were Dutch, was a fringe-maker in Newgate Street. As a child he showed an aptitude for handling both whip and pencil. Having married against his father's wishes, he went, without settled plans, to Doncaster, where he arrived during the races in September 1814, and saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse William win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. At first he did not succeed as an animal-painter, but executed some satisfactory work in coach-painting, which led him to aspire to drive a coach. For two years he drove the Nelson coach from Wakefield to Lincoln. He was afterwards transferred to the Doncaster and Halifax coach. While he was engaged on that road, his artistic powers, which he continually exercised, were discovered and appreciated, and he received many commissions to paint horses for gentlemen in the neighbourhood. In spite of increasing success as a painter of horses, he refused to hurriedly abandon his calling as coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired from the road and settled at Doncaster, he immediately obtained very numerous commissions. It was as the portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his especial fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush." (DNB). "In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of pictures of the winners of the St. Leger starting in 1815... W. Sheardown and Sons of Doncaster published these brilliantly engraved prints (by Thomas Sutherland) in 1825... Messrs Fuller of London... continued the series until the mid-1840s. Fullers also published a similar series of Derby winners after Herring's paintings between 1827 and 1841... These prints provide a 'benchmark' in their quality of painting, engraving and printing which subsequent publishers attempted to emulate, but rarely with such success" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.120) Lane, British Racing Prints p.121; Mellon, British Sporting and Animal Prints 96; Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints , p.145; Muir, A Descriptive Catalogue of the Engraved Works of J. F. Herring, Senior (1795 to 1865), p. 84.

He is twenty-eight years of age, about five feet six inches high, very black, rather bow-legged, and has a prominent chin; a homely fellow, without much address, and very fond of liquor.

Dear Sir: if my expectations, when last I wrote you from California, had been realized, I should have been before this on my homeward bound passage; but Providence has otherwise decreed. For five months we saw not the spout of a sperm whale, and it was not until within ten days past that we have heard the joyful sound from the mast-head of "There she blows!" Our boats put off, and we succeeded in making prizes of two small whales; (THIS PARAGRAPH CONTINUES, AND THERE ARE 11 OR 12 INCLUDED WITH THE ARTICLE). THERE IS AN ARCTICLE ON PAGE 3 DESCRIBING THE UPRISING OF NAT TURNER (name not mentioned specifically). The article also lists the white persons ascertained to be killed. HERE ARE SOME OF THE START OF THE ARTICLE: Respecting the late tragic occurrence in Virginia, the North Herald of Monday says: "We consider the affair at an end. The authors of the mischief are no doubt ere this either secured in prison or exterminated by their pursuers, and if any have escaped, they will be too anxious to bury themselves in the recesses of the Dismal Swamp, to give a moment's well-founded uneasiness to the inhabitants of the surrounding country. It is believed that their gang consisted principally of runaways who have been for years collecting in the Swamp, and who are supposed to have amounted to a formidable number. This, however, cannot be ascertained till an examination of the prisoners takes place, when the nature and object of their extraordinary movement will, no doubt, be fully developed...

        Plan of the City of New York

      London: Jefferys & Faden, 1831. Copper-engraved map by Thomas Kitchin after Bernard Ratzer, in very good condition, apart from some expert repairs to old folds and the lower margin. A fine copy of an apparently unrecorded second state of this important plan of New York, including the Jefferys & Faden imprint: 'Made just prior to the Revolution, the Ratzen plan was the most accurate and useful survey of New York then circulating' (Deák) 'Ratzer was an experienced surveyor and a fine draughtsman' (Cumming) whose highly accomplished plan was based on John Montresor's hurried survey of 1765. Cumming goes on to note that Ratzer's plan was 'much more carefully surveyed and drafted than Montresor's map; the wharves along the Sound are detailed, the streets given names, and new buildings and streets on either side of the Bowery entered.' It was engraved by Thomas Kitchin who mistakenly recorded the cartographer's name as 'Ratzen'. According to Deák, the plan 'details a portion of the city extending from the Battery to a point south of today's Grand Street, including the road to Greenwich (along the Hudson), Broadway, and the Bowery Lane (the high road to Boston). Across the river, a small part of Long Island is depicted, with the important Brookland Ferry clearly indicated. Thirty-one numbered references to the major landmarks are given below the dedicatory cartouche. These include Fort George, various churches, religious meetinghouses, the Exchange, and marketplaces. The nineteenth reference is to "The College" (i.e., King's College), today's Columbia University, originally located on spacious grounds overlooking the Hudson, south of Murray Street'. Curiously, the index illustrates a degree of religious tolerance that would have been found in very few cities around the world and evinces the great diversity that has characterized the city throughout its history. There is a diverse collection of Protestant sects including Calvinist, Episcopalian, Lutheran, and Huguenot churches, in addition to a synagogue. However, Roman Catholicism and non-Christian African religions were not permitted to be practiced openly. The great estates located to the north of the city proper are shown as belonging to several famous families including the Rutgers, the Bayards, and the De Lanceys. The rarity of the Plan is highlighted by the fact that it was unknown to Cumming (writing in 1979) and does not appear to have been recorded since. Cumming lists a copy of Ratzer's Map with 'Ruse & Turners' watermarks, but was uncertain if the watermark date was 1831 or 1851. The watermark date on the present example of the Plan is 'Ruse & Turners / 1831'. Since both the Cumming copy of the Map and the present Plan appear to have been printed on the same batch of paper, it is highly probable that they were printed at the same time. What is certain is that the present work is finely printed on top quality paper and that the image shows no apparent differences or wear when compared with the earlier issue. Cumming 'The Montresor-Ratzer-Sauthier Sequence of Maps of New York City, 1766-76', no.5b & cf.9b, in Imago Mundi 31 , pp.55-65; cf. Deák, American Views, 120; cf. Eno Collection , 29; cf.

        Topographical Map of the Districts of Quebec, Three Rivers, St Francis and Gaspé, Lower Canada, exhibiting the new civil division of the districts into counties pursuant to a recent act of the Provincial Legislature

      London: James Wyld, 1831. Large engraved map (50 x 90 inches, if joined), on six sheets, hand-coloured in outline. In good condition. A spectacular large scale map of Quebec and other districts in Lower Canada by one of the most important figures in the history of Canadian cartography. This very rare and beautifully-executed map is Joseph Bouchette's cartographic masterpiece, and is here in its most desirable form. It was available on six sheets (as here), four sheets backed on to linen, or dissected into small sections backed onto cloth and folding into protective covers. It includes a smaller scale inset map of the district of Gaspé, together with 5 inset views of coastal scenery. In addition many of the new counties also include the grid divisions which were used to mark out the plots which had been surveyed and were available for settlement. Joseph Bouchette was "particularly important for the history and development of Canada. In addition to completely reorganizing surveying and cartographic services in Lower Canada. He published works that demonstrate his artistic and scientific talents" ( Dictionary of Canadian Biography ). Bouchette served as Surveyor-General of Lower Canada from 1804 to 1841 (the office was abolished at his death), he travelled extensively over a period of fifteen years, and went on to produce the most accurate and important topographical works of his time on British North America. The genesis of the present work was the need to resolve ownership disputes in the area and also to establish which areas had been surveyed. "With this in mind ... [Bouchette] asked all the seigneurs for copies of their title deeds, to enable him to direct the work of his survey parties. Furthermore, his office was swamped with requests from men who, having served in the war, had received crown land grants and wanted them surveyed. Matters were in such a state of confusion that in 1820 the governor, Lord Dalhousie, asked Bouchette to investigate the situation in the area between Lake Champlain and the American frontier and the St Lawrence River. It was necessary to identify which of the occupied lands had been surveyed and which had not ... Subsequently he directed the work on a vast number of files related to the surveying of crown lands in Lower Canada. Because there was still so much confusion regarding grants to military men, in 1824 Lord Dalhousie asked Bouchette to make a tour of the various townships in which they were located" ( op. cit. ). From 1826 to 1829 Bouchette continued to collect data, before leaving for London in September 1829 and beginning his attempt to publish the information he had gathered. Despite his official position and the help of various influential friends and potential patrons, it took him almost three years before anything was published. The present map, a very visible vindication of all Bouchette's efforts, appeared in May 1831.

        [EXTENSIVE ARCHIVE OF BURTON FAMILY CORRESPONDENCE, INCLUDING LETTERS FROM DENVER CONCERNING POSSIBLE REBEL INVASION AND POST-WAR LETTERS FROM MONTANA]

      Colorado, Montana, and other locations. Mid- 1800s to early 1900s.. Approximately 750 items, including correspondence between Chester W. Burton and family and friends throughout the country, financial documents concerning money transactions and deeds, pamphlets, account books, diaries, family photographs, and newspaper clippings. Overall good to very good condition. A massive archive of family correspondence with important western American content. Chester Warren Burton (1831- 1916) was born in Portland, New York, to War of 1812 Veteran, Hiram Burton and his wife Harriet. Burton's grandfather and uncles also fought in the War of 1812, with one uncle, Salmon Burton, losing his life as a result of wounds received at the Battle of Little York, Canada, 1813. Burton married fellow Portland resident, M. Freedom Harris (1838-1916) in 1861, and together they had three children. Freedom was heavily involved in the Universalist Social Society, which provided aid to local soldiers. Although Burton was drafted during the Civil War on Aug. 18, 1863, he provided a substitute named James Kelly who deserted after one month of service. An 1881 Portland/Chautauqua atlas includes a brief biography of Burton, identified as a "fruit grower" who also worked as a civil engineer for six years and served as an assessor. He was also described as a "Universalist and a republican." The present archive includes approximately seventy-five pre- Civil War letters, documents, land indentures, and more, which focus primarily on Burton's grandfather, Simon, and his father, Hiram, as well as Freedom's father, Joseph Elliot Harris. Some of the correspondence pertains to the family's pursuit of bounty claims owed Simon in Indiana. Hiram Burton's handwritten application for a pension in which he outlines his service as a War of 1812 Veteran, which he submitted in 1871, also accompanies the archive. Another noteworthy, pre-war item is a penciled note calling for a public demonstration against the introduction of slavery into the territories, dated March 1861. The collection contains close to 100 letters, documents, and other ephemera dating from the 1860s, including Civil War-era correspondence, such as a small batch of letters written to Burton from soldiers from Co. D of the 9th New York Cavalry, namely James Ogden who enlisted as a corporal and was promoted to bugler (which he noted in a December 1861 letter); and Charles Crosby, who enlisted as a corporal and was later promoted to sergeant. Burton also corresponded with Joe E. Cook of Western Pennsylvania, who wrote in a Jan. 20, 1861 letter: "Surely I 'Hurrah for Anderson,' and groan for our treason-fostering President. It is folly to predict on the events that are transpiring, and which are in immediate connection and dependence with so vacillating and treacherous old Benedict Batch. But, let the events take whatever turn they may, at the beginning; ever so horrid and bloody, the result will be glorious. I cannot believe but that we are about to witness the worst stage on which this nation has ever acted, and do tremble when I think of the guillotine of vengeance that the southern people are raising higher and higher above their own heads, trampling with haughty tread and iron heel over the mute-floored powdermills that for years have been accumulating with black fulminating dust of hate." Another letter written early in the war to "Friend Chet" from Cook includes strong content about joining the war effort, the Constitution, and the issue of slavery. In the Oct. 14, 1861 letter Cook states, in part: "With Gerrit Smith I abhor war, but with him I am 'sick of the shams of this war' and am quite unable to decide what will be the eventuation of the Administration in regard to Slavery. If it shall decide to emancipate unreservedly then the war will be protracted and very bloody, but if they shall continue as the watch- word, 'Vive la Constitution,' then the war will be short...." He goes on to mention John Brown Jr. taking a number of men from Erie County, where he resided, as well as Crawford County, Pennsylvania. A small group of war- date documents pertain to Burton being drafted, including a partially- printed draft notice from the provost marshal's office, with a railroad pass to the muster location in Dunkirk, New York, and two small printed notices, one a circular on types of exemptions, the other outlining the procedure for supplying a substitute or paying $300 to Internal Revenue. The circular emphasized that the drafted individual must appear in person with receipt or send substitute, or be charged with desertion. Burton's draft deferment is also included. Some of the most interesting Civil War- period letters in this archive were written from Denver, Colorado, by Burton?'s sister, Maria, and her husband, J. Billings. They concern the sizable population of southerners in the Colorado gold fields and in Denver itself, and the agitation among them to claim the territory for the Confederacy. In a letter dated Sept. 5, 1861, believed to be from Maria, panic in Denver over a possible rebel invasion/insurrection is discussed: "We are having exciting times here & have had for the last 4 weeks. There are a great many secessionist here & they talk pretty tough, but as yet have done nothing but talk. There is a regiment raising here for home protection & it does not suit the southern Chivalry here. They make all sorts threats & there are all sorts of rumors fresh ones every day. First comes about the Texas Rangers then the Indians then the secessionists from the mountains & I suppose the next thing will be something else. The first United States court met last Monday & the Grand Jury has been doing something I should think by the way the Rebels are leaving town this afternoon & I hope that it will have the effect to keep them away. One of them is our nearest neighbor & the big gun among them. I think the grand jury must have a traitor among them. I hope that he may get his just desserts....There is a great deal of anxiety to hear from the states here to know what is going on there. Times are very dull here and have been all summer. Money is out of the question...it is dicker, barter & trade. There are a great many men in the mountains that are taking out money very fast & then again there are a great many that are making nothing. I have some property here that is very valuable if there was money here to pay for it." In a follow-up letter, dated Oct. 20, 1861, Maria mentions the increased level of security in Denver: "Home Guard has 150 men stationed throughout town every night. Men serve duty every four days." Burton's brother-in-law, Billings, provides an interesting description of early Denver, and he mentions the following incident in a letter of Dec. 14, 1863, while speaking of the local sheriff: "I have not been able to see him yet as he went South about the time you left. He will be back tomorrow, then I suppose he will take Van Horn up to Central and hang him." Billings was likely referring to William S. Van Horn, who was convicted of murdering a gentleman by the name of Josiah Copeland with the help of his mistress, although she was not charged with the crime. Van Horn was taken to Denver and held in the Arapahoe County Jail in an attempt to avoid a lynching, and on Dec. 18, 1863, he was hanged in front of a crowd of thousands in Central City. This was the first legal execution carried out under territorial authority. Two letters written to Burton from an unidentified homesteader in Montana, between February and the "First day of Spring" 1867, feature rich content about the Gold Rush and surviving the winter out west. In the Feb. 27 letter, he offers a detailed description of the machine used in hard-rock gold mining to pulverize the quartz to remove the gold, which is then "amalgamated" with mercury to extract the gold. In the second letter he describes in great detail stampeding during the harsh Montana winters. He states: "You must not call the Stampeder foolish. He came here to make a big thing, has worked all summer for wages which though good will never approach riches...a stampede occurs. The weather is mild; he has enough money to buy an outfit, and with those prospects before him...home by another winter. Is he to blame for not seeing the terrors of a winter's stampede in the rocky mountains! I studied my plans carefully, and know that they will operate, among which I was to let out the stampeding, but my notion is to move and the fact that I was unable to purchase an outfit has left me still thirsting for gold...." The archive also includes hundreds of post-war documents, manuscripts and related ephemera, such as letters from children and grandchildren to Burton and his wife in Chautauqua, and while wintering in Florida; many church pamphlets; and Women's Christian Temperance Union pamphlets. A vast and research-rich archive for Civil War and Western American scholars and collectors.

(I). Mon cher collègue, C'était aujourd'hui le jour de? le plaisir de dîner avec vous. La grippe et la fièvre en décident autrement. Excusez moi et plaignez moi. Mille regrets et amitiés. Lamartine. (II). Mon cher collègue, J'ai reçu et vu avec le plus vif intérêt votre jeune protégée. Mde de Lamartine veut s'en occuper aussi et la verra Lundi. Je ne doute guère que ses idées ne soient très sincères mais je pense qu'il y a bien plus de danger d'un? pour la mémoire de sa mère et de dépenses que d'avantages à poursuivre une si impossible recherche. Je la conseillerai dans ce sens et je crois que vous devriez faire ainsi pour son bonheur et son honneur. Adieu et mille remerciements? d'autant d'amitié. Lamartine. Je pars pour Mâcon et ne vous? je vous recommande cette charmante et malheureuse (?). Gustave Chaix d'Est-Ange défendit les intérêts de Lamartine quand l'éditeur Béthune qui avait acquis les droits de l'Histoire des Girondins en 1844, se montra incapable de faire face à ses engagements et rompit le contrat l'année suivante. La cause fut tranchée en Juillet à l'avantage de l'auteur, qui en profita pour revendre immédiatement les Girondins à Furne et Coquebert. Gustave Louis Chaix d'Est-Ange était le père de Gustave Gaspard Chaix d'Est-Ange (1832-1887) qui plaida en 1857 lors du célèbre procès contre Baudelaire au sujet des Fleurs du mal.
