DUMAS, Alexandre
Paris: Baudry, 1844. Paris: Baudry,, 1844. 8 volumes, octavo. Original yellow wrappers, titles to spines and covers in black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Housed in red quarter morocco solander boxes by the Chelsea Bindery. A little skilful conservation to spines, trivial loss to some ends, front joint of vol. II neatly reattached, faint marginal foxing to contents. A very nice copy of this scarce publication, in bright wrappers. First separate edition, extremely rare in the original wrappers. The author's best-known work and one of his two masterpieces, Les Trois Mousquetaires was originally published earlier the same year as a serial novel in the Parisian newspaper Le Siècle, from 14 March to 1 July 1844. The Three Musketeers "has become the archetypal adventure story, as well as the best known and the most widely read (and adapted) of all French novels. In the historical context of its production it was also the prototype of the roman-feuilleton (serial novel), which enjoyed phenomenal success in the 1840s... It provided a natural outlet for Alexandre Dumas's talents and energies as he combined elements of the historical romance of Sir Walter Scott with the formulas and themes of the romantic feuilleton... This 'Homeric clash of Titans', as David Coward described it, immediately became a best-seller, and was quickly translated into several languages, with no less than six pirated Belgian editions on the market in the year of publication. As Anthony Burgess noted, Dumas was truly 'one of the great myth-makers of his and any age'" (Murray, p. 118).

After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes.

[Tennessee]: [Clay, Henry]: Norville, C.C., ed.
Nashville, 1844. 320pp. Modern quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Initial leaf chipped at fore-edge. Several headlines trimmed close, affecting pagination. Tanning, light foxing and dampstaining. Very good. Norvell and Zollicoffer edited the NASHVILLE WHIG, which published this election supplement first biweekly then weekly during the presidential campaign of 1844. The paper urged the election of Whig candidate Henry Clay and the defeat of Democrat (and fellow Tennesean) James K. Polk. It supported the re-establishment of a National Bank, protectionist tariffs, and federal aid for internal improvements, and it denounced supporters of free trade such as John Calhoun and opponents of the bank like Polk. An excellent and scarce source for abundant commentary on local and national politics in 1844. Allen locates one complete run, at the Knoxville Public Library; only several incomplete runs located in OCLC, and not in Lomazow, Mott, or noted by the Library of Congress' Chronicling America. ALLEN 2126.

Samuel Rogers
Edward Moxon 1844 - From Wiki "In 1814 Rogers made a tour on the Continent with his sister Sarah. He travelled through Switzerland to Italy, keeping a full diary of events and impressions, and had made his way to Naples when the news of Napoleon's escape from Elba obliged him to hurry home. Seven years later he returned to Italy, paying a visit to Byron and Shelley at Pisa. Out of the earlier of these tours arose his last and longest work, Italy. The first part was published anonymously in 1822; the second, with his name attached, in 1828. It was at first a failure, but Rogers was determined to make it a success. He enlarged and revised the poem, and commissioned illustrations from J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Stothard and Samuel Prout. These were engraved on steel in the sumptuous edition of 1830. The book then proved a great success, and Rogers followed it up with an equally sumptuous edition of his Poems (1834). In 1850, on Wordsworth's death, Rogers was asked to succeed him as poet laureate, but declined the honour on account of his age." This book is in Very Good condition, the pages are clean, unmarked and tight to the spine. The covers are Black tooled and stylized.They are protected in rice paper covers. Printed by Whittingham. 341 pages with four pages of ads about Moxon books [a little foxing]. pp287 thru 333 are "Additional Notes" on his poems, followed by an Index.Illustrated throughout with woodcuts by various artists, many knighted and all from the Royal Academy of Arts.

Guillaume, James
Frz. - Aus dem Müller-Lehning-Nachlass. - Guillaume (1844-1916) zählt zu den profiliertesten Akteuren der in der Juraföderation versammelten antiautoritären Fraktion innerhalb der Internationalen Arbeiter-Assoziation (IAA). Nach dem Gründungsaufruf der IAA 1864 wurden im Schweizer Jura und der Westschweiz IAA-Sektionen gebildet. Guillaume gründete zusammen mit dem republikanisch gesinnten Constant Meuron 1866 in Le Locle eine dieser Sektionen und war fortan einer der Protagonisten des antiautoritären Flügels innerhalb der IAA, der nach dem Ausschluss auf dem Haager Kongress (1872) in St. Imier die antiautoritäre Internationale bildete. In den Jahren 1868 bis 1870 war Guillaume Herausgeber von ?Le Progrès?, der ersten anarchistischen Zeitung der Schweiz. Aufgrund des politischen Drucks ging Guillaume 1878 (andere Quellen besagen 1877) ins Pariser Exil und betätigte sich vor allem publizistisch mit pädagogischen und geografischen Fragen. Erst 1905 nahm er seine politische Tätigkeit wieder auf, als er in der aufkommenden anarcho-syndikalistischen Bewegung eine Fortführung libertärer Tendenzen registrierte. In diese Phase auch Guillaumes Werk ?L?Internationale. Documents et Souvenirs (1864-1878)?, das als die wichtigste Quelle der Geschichtsschreibung der IAA aus einem anarchistischen Blickwinkel heraus gilt. Teilbände mit OU und Frontispize von Constant Meuron, Michael Bakunin, Carlo Cafiero, Adhémar Schwitzguébel. Vollständig mit allen Illustrationen in Bd. 3 u. 4, die meist fehlen. - Einbände etwas berieben, Titelseite von drittem Teilband mit Einriss, Umschlag vom vierten T … [Click Below for Full Description]

MURRAY, Charles Augustus
(). MURRAY, Charles Augustus. The Prairie-Bird. 3 volumes. Contemporary full brown calf, t.e.g. London: Richard Bentley, 1844. First edition. Wolff 5022. Sadleir 1818. Wagner-Camp 112. Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "H.A. Murray from his affec...ate Brother The Author Jan.y 10-1849. Cairo." A subsequent inscription beneath, signed by one George Hathorn, whose bookplate appears on the front end-paper of volume one, records the further provenance of this copy: "On the death of the Admiral, Charles Murray sent this copy to Mrs. Hathorn as a momento of her friend." The set was presumably bound for the author prior to its original presentation, since an identical binder's blank appears at the front and back of each volume, and the inscriptions have been written on the first of these. Hinges restored and still a bit weak; somewhat rubbed with light chipping to extremities of spines. Murray's romance is based upon his experiences among the Pawnees with whom he lived in 1835. According to the Preface, one of his "chief aims has been to afford [the reader] correct information respecting the habits, condition, and character of the North American Indians and those bordering on their territory."
