      [Various places], 1844. Quarto. Original brown cloth. Cloth moderately soiled and stained. Light dampstaining to some of the text. About very good. Manuscript log book of the U.S.S. Delaware, kept by seaman Robert B. Storer during the ship's final voyage. The U.S.S. Delaware was launched in October 1820. She spent most of her active duty cruising in the Mediterranean, where she served in the interests of American commerce and diplomacy in that area, though she also spent several years stationed in Brazil, patrolling the coasts of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina to represent American interests during political unrest in those countries. She began her final voyage to the Mediterranean in February 1843, setting out from Rio de Janeiro. This log covers the last three months of the Delaware's active service, documenting her return voyage from the Mediterranean to Norfolk. She arrived home in March 1844, and was still at the naval yard in 1861, when she was set afire with other U.S. ships in order to keep them from falling into Confederate hands. The log begins with the ship at anchor in Mahon harbor, off Minorca in the Mediterranean. Storer keeps details of provisioning the ship and readying to sail for first twelve days of January. As is standard with ship's logs, he records speeds, winds, and weather conditions, as well as the positioning of the sails. Everyday events such as inspecting the crew or holding "divine service" on Sundays are noted, as are sightings of other ships' sails and exchanging colors with passing vessels. The Delaware sights the coast of Spain and moves into the Atlantic around the third week in January; on February 2, crew member Jacob Lawrence, a marine, dies (though Storer does not say from what), and his funeral service is held the next day, and Lawrence's body is committed to the deep. Also of note, the Delaware investigates a wreck on February 15: "At 7.45 hauled up the courses, hauled down the jib and laid the main and mizen topsails to the mast, and sent a boat to board the wreck. At 8.15 the boat returned from the wreck; discovered her to be the English Hermaphrodite Brig 'Halifax' of 'Halifax,' loaded with lumber, water logged and foremast sawed off, nothing living on board." The rest of the voyage is uneventful and relatively smooth, and the Delaware sights the Cape Henry lighthouse on March 4. The last few days are recorded as the ship is anchored at Hampton Roads, including a salute to the passing of former Secretary of the Navy Thomas Gilmer, who died on February 28.

        Rambles and Recollections of an Indian Official.

      London: J. Hatchard and Son,, 1844. 2 volumes, octavo (230 × 147 mm). Late 19th-century green morocco by Bickers sometime rebacked with the original spines laid down (hinges strengthened with green cloth), richly gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Chromolithograph portrait frontispieces, 24 plates of buildings, 6 plates or plants and ornaments. Spines and extremities of sides sunned. First edition. Sir William Henry Sleeman (1788-1856) "was a British soldier and administrator in India [who] joined the Bengal army in 1809. In 1820 he became assistant to the Governor-General's Agent in the Sagar and Narmada territories... [and] is famous for... his role in the suppression of thagi [thuggee]. He was Resident at Gwalior from 1843 to 1849 and at Lucknow from 1849-1856. He died at sea near Sri Lanka in 1856. In his book Rambles and Recollections of an Indian Official he has given a very sympathetic account of India and its people" (Mishra & Mishra, India Through Alien Eyes, Chapter 8). Sleeman's chapter on suttee has been described as "one of the longest suttee texts in Victorian literature" (Margery Sabin, Dissenters and Mavericks: Writings about India in English, 1765-2000, Oxford 2002, p. 80).

      London, 1844. Folio. Publisher's brown moire cloth boards, upper cover lettered in gilt, rebacked and retipped with dark brown calf. Endpapers and tissue guards renewed, scattered minor soiling. Else very good. First edition, handcolored issue. Catlin published the first two issues of CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO... simultaneously in late November 1844. The first issue was handcolored, and the second had tinted plates. Catlin originally envisaged publishing a series of linked but separate portfolios, each with its own theme: religious rites, dances, costumes, etc. Unfortunately, the first series was the only one that was ever published, and its production proved to be so taxing (both financially and physically) that Catlin sold both the publication and distribution rights to Henry Bohn. CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO contains the results of his years of painting, living with and travelling amongst the Great Plains Indians. Catlin summarized the American Indians as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, - yet honourable, contemplative and religious being." In a famous passage from the preface of his NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO, Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian." He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. From 1832 to 1837 he spent the summer months sketching the tribes and then finished his pictures in oils during the winter. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. In addition to publishing the present work, Catlin spent from 1837 to 1852 touring the United States, England, France, and Holland with his collection of paintings, examples of Indian crafts and accompanied by representative members of the Indian tribes. A financial reverse in 1852 meant that he lost the collection, but he spent his later years making several trips to South and Central America, sketching the natives there. The plates are as follows: 1) "North American Indians." 2) "Buffalo Bull Grazing." 3) "Wild Horses, at Play." 4) "Catching the Wild Horse." 5) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 6) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 7) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 8) "Buffalo Dance." 9) "Buffalo Hunt, Surround." 10) "Buffalo Hunt, White Wolves attacking a Buffalo Bull." 11) "Buffalo Hunt, Approaching a Ravine." 12) "Buffalo Hunt, Chasing Back." 13) "Buffalo Hunt, Under the White Wolf Skin." 14) "Snow Shoe Dance." 15) "Buffalo Hunt, on Snow Shoes." 16) "Wounded Buffalo Bull." 17) "Dying Buffalo Bull, in Snow Drift." 18) "The Bear Dance." 19) "Attacking the Grizzly Bear." 20) "Antelope Shooting." 21) "Ball Players." 22) "Ball-Play Dance." 23) "Ball Play." 24) "Archery of the Mandans." 25) "Wi-Jun-Jon an Assiniboine Chief...Going to Washington...Returning to his home." A highly important record of a "truly lofty and noble race....A numerous nation of human beings...three-fourths of whose country has fallen into the possession of civilized man...twelve million of whose bodies have fattened the soil in the mean time; who have fallen victims to whiskey, the small-pox, and the bayonet" (Catlin).

      Oregon Territory, Columbia River, 1844. Old folds. A few stains. Some small closed splits along folds, longer split along bottom fold of second leaf, with no loss of text. Overall very good. A remarkable letter, offering a wealth of information on the activities of the Methodist Mission in Oregon Territory in the 1840s, and including vivid details of the attempted sacrifice of a young slave by local Indians. At the time of this letter the Methodist Mission in Oregon was a decade old, and leadership was passing from the mission's founder, Rev. Jason Lee. Henry Brewer's letter describes this tumultuous time in the mission's history, gives information on his own experiences with local Indians and relates, in riveting detail, the near sacrifice of a young slave. Henry Bridgeman Brewer (1813-86) was a Methodist missionary born in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. In October 1839 he sailed with the Methodist Episcopal Mission around Cape Horn, arriving at Fort Vancouver the following June. He served as a farmer, teacher, and translator at the Wascopum Mission at the Dalles of the Columbia River until 1847, when the mission was transferred to the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, and he returned to Massachusetts. The most striking passage in Brewer's letter describes the attempted sacrifice of a young slave by a grieving Indian father: "While we were on our visit to Wallamette a circumstance took place which shows that heathenistic practices are not all done away. It may be a good story for a Sabbath school. Sinimsh an Indian who lives not far from our house had a little boy whom he loved dearly; the father's heart was set upon him. This little boy was taken sick and died. The father had a little slave that used to wait upon his little son in his life time. The father thought for the love he had for his son he ought to sacrifice the slave at his death, accordingly the deceased child and the living slave were taken to the sepulchre of the dead. (The Indians of the Dalles bury their dead in houses made of boards on an island in the Dalles to keep them from the wolves). The slave is probably eight years old. He made no resistance. They bound him hand & foot & laid him upon the bodies of other deceased persons who had been recently placed there, with his face downward & the body of the deceased child placed upon him. Just as they were about to leave him he called to them to loose the cord that bound him but they heeded not his cries. In this awful situation he spent one long dismal night though before morning he shook the corpse off from him. He said he heard the dead singing (the Indians believe this to be really true). One of the chiefs was in at Br. Perkins & was mentioning the circumstances & said he tried to dissuade them from doing as they did. Br. P. tried to have them bring him away that night but in vain. The next day Br. Perkins ransomed him from the grave by paying three blankets & a shirt which are to be placed in the room of the slave so that the dead may not be robbed. Br. P. has named him Ransom for he was ransomed from the grave. The little slave is a bright active little fellow. The sores where he was tied have not quite healed. Br. P. has him along & will probably put him out to some good pious man at Wallamette as an apprentice." Brewer's letter also gives a great deal of information about the activities of the missionaries in Oregon, including the succession of the leadership of the mission from the founder, Jason Lee, to George Gary, and the activities of missionaries Alvin F. Waller and H.K.W. Perkins. Brewer writes: "You no doubt have been apprised that Rev. Geo. Gary has been appointed to supercede Br. Lee in the superintendency of the Oregon Mission. The board no doubt made a good selection. Br. Gary is a good Father to us all. He is now 51 years old & a man of much experience. The board authorized him to dismiss all of the secular men of the mission except myself & sell all the farms, mills &c &c of the mission except the Wascopam [sic] farm, as they know not enough about that station to determine. Br. Gary has acted accordingly. The three farms on the Willamette are sold. The Indian school is given up, the store at Willamette Falls is sold &c." Toward the end of the letter, in a passage dated Oct. 3, Brewer announces his arrival at Wallamette Falls, relates news of the health of his wife, and describes the recent murder of a feared Indian: "Kladicula the Indian who abused us last spring was shot by a Cayuse Indian a few days before I left home. The Indians all seem to rejoice for they feared him. Thus you see vengeance belongs to God. I have felt for some time as though he would be cut off for his sins." An exceptional letter from an Oregon missionary.

      Philadelphia: II); Daniel Rice & James G. Clark (Vol. III), 1844. Folio. Expertly bound to style in half black morocco and period cloth covered boards, spines gilt. Very good. First edition of "One of the most costly and important [works] ever published on the American Indians" (Field), "a landmark in American culture" (Horan), and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life, including some of the greatest American handcolored lithographs of the 19th century. This copy has a complete set of the very rare original wrappers, here uniformly bound as a fourth volume. After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the American Indian for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827 he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with American Indian tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1839, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years he was joined by James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer, and from 1833 a Cincinnati banker, who had written extensively about the West. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures among the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the North American Indians. The work is now famous for its color plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors, and squaws of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates), or worked up by King from the watercolors of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. All but four of the original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865, so their appearance in this work preserves what is probably the best likeness of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to date, and its publishing history is extremely complex. The titlepages give an indication of issue and are relatively simple: volume I, first issue was by Edward C. Biddle and is dated 1836 or more usually 1837; the second issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838; and the third issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1842. Volume II, first issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838, and the second issue is by Rice & Clark and dated 1842. Volume III, first issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1844. Copies of the work with their original wrappers are of the utmost scarcity and seldom found.

      New York & Philadelphia, 1844. Royal octavo. Half titles. Period half black morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Spines a bit rubbed. Scattered foxing, generally to the tissue guards and text. Else very good. The first octavo edition of "Audubon's Great National Work." This is the first complete edition and the first American edition. The work is one of the "most beautiful, popular, and important natural history books published in America in the nineteenth century...[also] representing the best of pre-Civil War American lithography and giving Audubon the opportunity finally to display his scholarship and genius to a large American audience for the first time" (Ron Tyler). The plates, here accompanied by the text for the first time, were reduced and variously modified from the Havell engravings in the double elephant folio. Seven new species are figured, and seventeen others, previously described in the ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY but not illustrated, were also shown for the first time. Audubon may have been prompted to publish the reduced version of his double elephant folio by the appearance in 1839 of John Kirk Townsend's rival ORNITHOLOGY OF THE UNITED STATES; or, as he writes in the introduction to the present work, he may have succumbed to public demand and his wish that a work similar to his large work should be published, but "at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library." The first edition of the octavo work is certainly the most famous and accessible of all American color plate books, and now represents the only realistic opportunity that exists for collectors to own an entire collection of Audubon images in a form that was overseen and approved by the great artist himself. The octavo BIRDS OF AMERICA was originally issued in 100 parts, each containing five plates executed by the Philadelphia lithographer, J.T. Bowen. The whole story of the production of the book, with detailed information about every aspect of the project, is told by Ron Tyler in AUDUBON'S GREAT NATIONAL WORK (Austin, 1993). The story Tyler tells of the difficulties of production and marketing are revealing of the whole world of color printing in mid-19th-century America. By combining detailed text with careful observations next to his famous images, Audubon proved that he was as good a scientific naturalist as the members of the scientific establishment who had scorned him.

Recent green half morocco, richly gilt spine in 7 compartments with falcon ornaments, frontcover with gilt lettered label. "The finest work on Falconry which has ever been produced; not only on account of the beauty of the plates, wherein the hawks are depicted life-size and of the natural colours, but also for the general accuracy of the letterpress . Exclusive of the ornamental title-page., there are 16 folio plates, 2 of which are illustrative of Heron Hawking at the Loo, in 1844, with portraits of contemporary falconers; 2 others contain figures of hoods, jesses, lure, and other accessories; and the remaining 12 give life-size coloured figures of the hawks employed by falconers, admirably drawn by Joseph Wolf and J.B. Sonderland" (Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 194). A fine copy with the first 3 text leaves skilfully reproduced. The 'Traité de fauconnerie' is the rarest and most beautiful sought after book on falconry ever published.

Publisher's half green morocco and moiré cloth boards, titled in gilt "Catherwood's Views / in Central America / Chiapas and Yucatan" at center of upper cover, titled in gilt on spine; yellow endpapers. Very good. "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" - Von Hagen. This beautiful and rare plate book was printed in an edition of 300 copies. It is seldom found in presentable condition, and it is one of the first and primary visual records of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. Until the publication of the work of Alfred Maudslay at the turn of the century, this was the greatest record of Mayan iconography. Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveller and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, CHIAPAS, AND YUCATAN and INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN YUCATAN. These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. Catherwood's VIEWS was produced in London, although issued with both London and New York titlepages. Catherwood recruited some of the most distinguished lithographers in London to translate his originals onto stone: Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys, and George Belton Moore. The beautiful titlepage was executed by Owen Jones. Three hundred sets were produced, most of them tinted, as in the present copy (there is a colored issue on card stock, which is exceedingly rare). The views depict monuments and buildings at Copan, Palenque, Uxmal, Las Monjas, Chichen Itza, Tulum, and several scattered sights. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise, but neither lived to enjoy it long. Stephens died in 1852 of malaria contracted in Colombia, and Catherwood went down on a steamship in the North Atlantic in 1854. "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist- archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor" - Aldous Huxley. Not in Abbey.

      Alden & Landis 698/27; Cat. NHSM, p. 844; Sabin 7406; for the author: NNBW VI, cols. 184-187. First French edition of a renowned biography of the Dutch Admiral Michiel Adriaansz. de Ruyter, written by the historian Geeraert (Gerard) Brandt and edited by his sons Caspar and Johannes. The biography, esteemed for its literary qualities, drew on first-hand documents that were partly lost in a fire in 1844 and remains of great importance.Born in Vlissingen in 1607, De Ruyter took to the seas at the age of 11. By the age of 15, when he joined the Dutch Navy, he had sailed with whalers, pirates and merchants, travelling as far as Morocco and the West Indies. De Ruyter owes his greatest fame however to his role in the three Anglo-Dutch Wars. He fought the English off the coast of West Africa, the Caribbean, temporarily took St John's, New Foundland, and even considered retaking New York (which plan was frustrated by the heavy damage he sustained to his ships). The fine plates, the same as in the Dutch edition, show sea battles (Plymouth, Nyborg, Kijkduin and Sicily), views of Algiers and Chatham, De Ruyter's funeral, and his tomb in the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam. The Dutch edition was first published in 1687.With an early 18th-century armorial bookplate of the Vaernewijck family (engraved by François Heijlbrouck) on an endleaf, and a 13-line note about the book and about De Ruyter in large early 19th-century stencilled roman letters on the paste-down. In very good condition, slightly browned and stained at places. Spine chafed and slightly damaged at the foot. An important life of Michiel de Ruyter.

        Autograph letter signed

      1844. Signed. AUDUBON, John James.Autograph letter to Audubon?'s sons, signed.Pittsfield, Massachusetts, June 22, 1844.Exceptional Audubon letter to his two sons, Victor and John, in which he directs the movement of monies connected with the publication of the great Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.The octavo edition of The Birds of America was just underway when, in 1839, at the age of 54, Audubon decided to publish a large folio edition of North American animals. When his loyal friend John Bachman heard about these plans, he wrote, ?"The animals have never been carefully described, and you will find difficulties at every step. Books cannot aid you much. Long journeys will have to be undertaken. Several species remain to be added and their habits ascertained? Don?'t flatter yourself that this book is child?'s play— the birds are a mere trifle compared with this?" (Clark, 64). The scope of the geographical range was immense, comprising the British and Russian possessions in America, the whole of the United States and its territories, California , and part of Mexico. At ?"Minnie?'s Land,?" their home overlooking the Hudson River, Audubon and his sons kept a large tract of land where they kept deer, elk, and other animals which could be used as live models. ?"In addition to these resources, both Bachman and Audubon used skins from all over North America which were sent to them.?" Before the completion of the work, Audubon suffered a stroke which left him paralyzed and partially blind. Final preparations were made by Bachman, who contributed the text, and Audubon?'s two sons, particularly John, who actually did a number of the paintings. This revealing autograph letter to Victor and John, dated June 22, 1844, reads in full: ?"My Dearest friends, I reached our good friend Capt. [Samuel] Cummings, yesterday afternoon, and found all well. We contemplated going fishing early this morning, but it rained all night, and rains now; therefore we gave it up. I wrote to you all in the morning of yesterday, and advised Victor that he might draw on Barry & Bro for $1200 payable at Boston on the 25th instant. I repeat this, fearing that Victor might not having been in the city this morning, and wrote under that should that be the case, for [Georgianna] Mallory [Victor?'s second wife] to take the letter to Minnie?'s Land. This would save time at least. Why has not Johny answered Capt. C?'s letter containing money? I have seen many persons here, but cannot tell whether I will have a single subscriber or not! I go to Albany on Monday morning next and hope to be with you all on the 1st or the 2nd July. God bless you all, and Love to everybody, Yours always faithfully, John J. Audubon. [P.S.] Go to the city on the 3rd July and get a balance from the office. Take it home as soon as you can and put it on sec[retary desk].?"Fine condition, with only faint fold lines and small tear where seal was opened.

        Deutsch-franzosische Jahrbücher. 1ste und 2the Lieferung (all that was published). [Including: Karl Marx: Jur Judenfrage & Fr. Engels: Die Lage Englands].

      Paris, 1844. 8vo. Recently bound in perfect pastiche, in an excellent half leather binidng with elegant gilding and gilt leather title-label to spine. An old signature to title-page. A bit of dampstaining throughout. Some leaves with ligt marginal pencil-markings. (2), 237, (3) pp. [Jur Judenfrage: pp. 182-214; Die Lage Englands: pp. 152-181].. The very rare first edition of the double-issue (all that was published) of Ruge and Marx' seminal journal "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher", which constitutes the actual beginning of Marxism. It is here that Marx' materialist conception of history is presented for the first time and here that we find for the first time the basis for Marx' critique of Capitalism. It is in the present journal, published jointly by Arnold Ruge and Karl Marx, that Marx' "On the Jewish Question" appears for the first time, constituting that which later became the basis of his critiques of capitalism, as well as Engels' "The Condition of England", which constitutes the forerunner of "The Condition of the Working-Class in England". The journal was created as a reaction to the censorship of the "Rheinische Zeitung", but only one issue - the present double number - appeared, in February 1844, four years before "The Communist Manifesto". The publication of "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher" was discontinued partly because of Marx' differences in principle with the bourgeois radical Ruge and because of the great difficulties in smuggling the periodical into Germany.Marx' seminal essay "Zur Judenfrage" ("On the Jewish Question") constitutes his fundamentally important analysis of liberal rights. It is formulated as a critique of Bruno Bauer's position on the attempt of Jews to receive political emancipation in Prussia, which, Bauer argued could only be achieved if they relinquished their particular religious consciousness. Bauer's argument is that political emancipation requires a secular state and that in a secular state there can be no room for religion. Thus, true political emancipation presupposes the abolition of religion. In Marx' analysis, a secular state is not opposed to religion, it rather presupposes it. Arguing that the removal of religious or property qualifications for citizens does not mean the abolition of religion or property itself, Marx moves on to Bauer's analysis of political emancipation and concludes that, while individuals in a secular state can be spiritually and politically free, economic inequality still creates material constraints upon freedom. That theory, developed here for the first time, is what later comes to form the basis of his critiques of capitalism.It is in Paris in 1844, after his political flight from Germany, that Marx meets Engels, striking up the friendship that was to become one of the most important in the history of political and economic thought. The present publication is the first in which Marx and Engels are published together.Engels' great contribution to "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher" consists in his "Die Lage Englands" ("The Condition of England"), a review of Thomas Carlyle's "Past and Present", according to Engels the only work in England to show "traces of a human point of view". The review presents Engel's view that the evils from which England suffered were social, not political and that democracy would only be a "transitional stage - either, as Carlyle thought, on the way to true aristocracy, or, as Engels himself thought, to "real human freedom". Engels also agreed with Carlyle about the religious roots of the social crisis - "We too are concerned with combating the lack of principle, the inner emptiness, the spiritual deadness, the untruthfulness of the age ... We want to put an end to atheism, as Carlyle portrays it, by giving back to man the substance he has lost through religion", he writes, and further agrees with Carlyle about "the revelation of history". This position represented the first step towards the joint position of Marx and Engels and what was later to develop into what we now understand by Marxism. Engels' seminal review was followed a year and a half later by his famous main work "The Condition of the Working-Class in England", where he further developed his position
