Er ging 1822 nach Italien und ließ sich in Neapel, dann 1838 in Rom nieder, wo er mit seinem Feund, dem Maler R. Müller (1802-1885) zusammenlebte.

        Two Years Before The Mast A Personal Narrative Of Life At Sea

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1840. First Edition, Second Issue. Very good+, professionally rebacked preserving the original dark brown cloth covered boards and the spine's backstrip with its gilt text. The text shows only occasional spots of foxing and the last 6 pages are moderately soiled. A 24mo measuring 6" by 3 1/2" with an early prior owner's inscription noting his date of purchase in Parkersburg, West Virginia in Nov. 8, 1896 on the verso side of the first free end page. Without a dust jacket as issued. First editions did not carry the author's name on the spine or title page. This is a variant first edition copy of this title as it lacks any date on the title page and no enumeration of the various titles in the series. This is the second issue of the first edition where there is no dot over the "i" in the word "in" on the copyright page and the broken type at the top of page 9. The gilt publisher's emblem on the spine states: "The | Family | Library | No. 106" with the book's modified title "Life | Before | The | Mast" at the base of the spine. Wright Howes in his bibliography U.S.Iana states: "This account of California in 1835 and 1836 surpassed in popularity all other books relating to that state." This is volume "No. 106" in Harper's Family Library Series. (BAL 4434; Howes D-49; Sabin 18448; Cowan p.156)

        MEMOIRS OF VIDOCQ, AS A CONVICT, SPY, AND AGENT OF THE FRENCH POLICE

      London: I. J. Chidley, 123, Aldersgate Street, n.d. [1840s].. 12mo, pp. [i-iii] iv-vi [i] ii-xii [1] 2-562, engraved title leaf and eight inserted plates with illustrations by Thomas Onwhyn, original pictorial red cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed, yellow coated endpapers. First complete one-volume edition? No holdings for this edition can be found in any of the libraries of COPAC, leaving some uncertainty about its exact bibliographic status. What is known and what seems likely are as follows: the first English translation of this work was issued in four volumes by Hunt and Clarke in 1828-1829. (Oxford also records another edition in 4 volumes in 1829 from Whittaker, Treacher and Arnet.) A one-volume edition appeared in 1859 in the Bohn Library and also from T. B. Peterson in the U.S., the latter running to 562 pages, the same page count as the present edition and, one may reasonably suspect, of the Bohn Library edition as well. That would place this Chidley edition somewhere between 1829 and 1859 (confirmed by a gift inscription dated July 1847 on the front free endpaper). Chidley brought out an earlier undated edition (circa 1840) titled THE LIFE AND EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF VIDOCQ. This edition consisted of only 206 pages and, therefore, may have been the first of a projected multi-volume edition. What seems likely is that this is the first complete one-volume edition of VIDOCQ -- an important probable influence on Poe's creation of Dupin. See Queen's Quorum, pp. 8-9. Queen, The Detective Short Story, pp. 107-08. July 1847 gift inscription on the front free endpaper. Some foxing and age-darkening to plates, several hairline cracks along outer joints, but a very good copy with clean binding and bright spine stamping. A very uncommon edition of this book.

        Report made to the Chamber of Deputies on the abolition of slavery in the French colonies by Alexis de Tocqueville, July 23, 1839. Translated from the French.

      J. Munroe and Co.,, Boston: 1840 - 8vo, original printed wrappers, cloth-folding box with leather title label, 54 pp. Wrappers chipped, a few pages uncut, front wrapper neatly re-attached; otherwise very good. Alexis de Tocqueville was a French sociologist and political theorist, his well-known travels to the United States in 1831 resulted in his well-known work on "Democracy in America" (1835). He was a well-known critic of slavery, and race prejudice, and it is not surprising he would be involved in this effort. Rather scarce American edition of Alexis de Tocqueville's report as "rapporteur" for a committee in the French Chamber of Deputies tasked to consider the abolition of slavery in the French colonies of Martinique, Guadaloupe, Bourbon and Guiana. Published in the same year as the original French edition. His proposal was for the abolition to take place over a transition period in which the State would act as arbitrator between the former masters and the new freedmen, assigning the blacks, who would be paid wages, to the colonists. As Tocqueville's biographer states, "A portion of the wages would revert to the State in partial amortization of the indemnities paid to the slaveholders at the time of the emancipation. By thus interposing the power of the State, Tocqueville hoped to prevent the bloody settling of accounts between the two races that had so struck him in the United States." His proposal did not reach the floor of the Chamber for debate, but slavery was abolished in the French colonies in 1848. His proposals did, inevitably, exert influence on the anti-slavery movement in the United States. history online website. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph Letter signed ("MR Mitford") to Mrs. [John] Hughes, of Donnington Priory, Berkshire, thanking her and Mr. Hughes for their kindness to her father

      Three Miles Cross [Berkshire, England] 1840 - 3pp. in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 12mo. Miss Mitford on Kindness to her Father. A hearfelt and touching letter to the mother of the author of TOM JONES SCHOOL DAYS, thanking her and Mr. Hughes for their kindness to her father. George Mitford was a profligate gambler whose habits had reduced his family to poverty. According to the DNB, the elder Mitford's many failings "never succeeded in alienating the affections of his wife and daughter." Her love for her father could hardly be better illustrated than in this touching letter to her friends, John and Margaret Hughes:"I cannot help writing to thank you & Mr. Hughes over & over again for your great goodness & kindness to my dear father. He has talked of little but Donnington and its inhabitants since his return - I have no words to tell you how strongly I feel your affection to him . At all times kindness to my father goes much more surely to my heart than kindness to myself -- but just now when I hear talk of alarm for his health it was an inexpressible comfort . " 3pp. in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 12mo

        I PROMESSI SPOSI. Storia milanese del secolo XVII scoperta e rifatta da Alessandro Manzoni. Edizione riveduta dall'autore - Storia della Colonna Infame. Inedita.

      Dalla Tipografia Guglielmini e Redaelli, 1840. Cm.25x17. Pg.864. Legatura coeva in piena tela rossa con titoli e decorazioni in oro al dorso. Bordura a filo oro ai piatti. Tagli in oro. La coperta presenta un vecchio rinforzo conservativo in tela all'attaccatura delle cerniere, sovente assai fragile in questo tipo di legatura, Fogli di guardia marmorizzati, con ex libris al contropiatto anteriore. Occasionali fioriture, fisiologiche per il tipo di carta. Antiporta e frontespizio figurati. Testo incorniciato in bordura a doppio filo. Opera adorna da oltre 450 illustrazioni xilografiche nel testo, incise da Luigi Sacchi con la collaborazione di Pollet, Bernard, Sheeres, Loiseau e Victor su bozzetti di Francesco Gonin, assieme a Louis Boulanger, Paolo e Luigi Riccardi, Federico Moia, Massimo d'Azeglio, Giuseppe Sogni e Luigi Bisi . Buon esemplare della celebre "Quarantana", terza ed ultima stesura del capolavoro manzoniano, che recepisce i mutamenti dovuti alla ben nota "risciacquatura dei panni in Arno", con cui il Manzoni lima gli eccessi linguistici della prima redazione. Fu il Manzoni stesso, anche per arginare le numerose edizioni apocrife, a decidere di dotare il romanzo di un apparato iconografico, volto a scandire ed esplicitare l'incedere degli eventi. Dopo un primo tentativo, fallito, con Francesco Hayez, la scelta dell'illustratore cadde sul giovane Francesco Gonin (Torino, 1808-1889), pittore, scenografo, disegnatore e costumista, cui fu affidato il coordinamento del lavoro di disegno, sotto lo stretto controllo dello stesso Manzoni, con l'ausilio dei francesi Pollet, Bernard, Victor e Loiseau e dell'inglese Sheeres. Predisposti i bozzetti, il lavoro incisorio fu affidato alla responsabilità di Luigi Sacchi (Milano 1805 - 1861), pittore, litografo, silografo e fotografo, che coordinò il gruppo di incisori prescelto, composto da Moia, Boulanger, Sogni, Bisi, D'Azeglio e dai fratelli Riccardi. Con l'edizione illustrata venne data alle stampe per la prima volta la "Storia della colonna infame". > Parenti, "Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento", I, 214-226, "[...] Edizione principe, che unisce all'intrinseco pregio, già altissimo, quello di essere una delle più belle, se non la più bella, edizione romantica italiana". Parenti, "Prime edizioni italiane", 331, "È la prima edizione del testo del romanzo riveduto e della Storia della Colonna Infame". Tellini, "Manzoni", 38, "Le vignette [...] sono tutte programmate da Manzoni, per quanto riguarda la scelta del tema da illustrare, il taglio, la sceneggiatura, la successione delle immagini". Salveraglio, 57. Vismara, 57. Codice libreria 128980.
