        Reminiscences of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey

      London - Houlston and Stoneman, 1847. London - Houlston and Stoneman, 1847 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An essay on the lives and works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey. With frontispiece. Cottle, in his Early Recollections, chiefly relating to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1837), enumerated his generosities to Coleridge and Southey, and entered into details of Coleridge's opium habit. The confusion in Cottle's Recollections is greater than any one would think possible, said Southey; the book is inaccurate in its dates, and documents quoted are garbled. It has details on others such as Robert Lovell and William Gilbert. It has youthful portraits of Coleridge, Southey, Wordsworth, and Charles Lamb. A second edition was published in 1847 under the title of Reminiscences of Coleridge and Southey. Condition: Rebacked in red cloth with original boards preserved. Externally, sound, though with some bumping to the extremities and some rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Some loss to title page. Pages are generally bright and clean, aside from some browning to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD..

        LENGTHY AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JAMES H. CARLETON TO GEORGE EVANS, CONCERNING AFFAIRS IN THE MEXICAN- AMERICAN WAR].

      Buena Vista. July 21, 1847. - [16]pp., about 3500 words. Quarto, on folded folio sheets. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling and wear. Near fine. A very long letter regarding the Mexican-American War, written by a member of General Wool's staff to a friend back home in Maine. Carleton, a career army officer, author of a book on the Battle of Buena Vista, and ardent supporter of Zachary Taylor, describes his unit's march to Mazapil following some false information about a guerilla attack: "the first time American troops had been in Zacatecas." Following that he speculates on Santa Anna's troop strength and fortifications: "We have no news from Gen. Scott. By the last advices he has not pushed on his main army beyond Puebla. We learn that Santa Anna has fortified and prepared the capital for a vigorous defense, having some 12,000 regulars and some 20,000 irregular troops, with a large number of cannon. No doubt his strength is greatly magnified. If, even, he has that number, they cannot all be properly armed, much less disciplined and skilled in the use of their weapons. Such a force on a plain should be destroyed by 8000 American regular troops.Gen. Taylor could with 8000 regulars whip 40,000 such troops as Mexico can now bring in the field. His name is worth a third more than Gen. Scott's." He writes that he recently dined with General Taylor, and describes Taylor's plans for a full offensive. He adds that "the utmost good feeling does not subsist between Gen. Scott and Gen. Taylor," who has "never been satisfied with Gen. Scott's course in stripping him of his veteran troops and leaving him with only the volunteers who had never been under fire." Additionally, Carleton describes his own efforts to write a history, published the following year, of the Battle of Buena Vista, which Taylor had commanded at in late February, 1847. He also praises Taylor's performance at the battle and its demoralizing effect on Scott: "We feel very certain that nothing but death can interpose to prevent Gen. Taylor from being President.As a man of strong practical sense, good judgment, stern integrity, and with an earnest singleness of purpose, the good of the whole country, he hardly has an equal." James Henry Carleton (1814-73) was a native of Maine, commissioned as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army in 1839. He served in the Mexican-American War and later became a general, commanding Union troops in New Mexico during the Civil War. The letter's recipient, George Evans (1797- 1867) was a former U.S. Senator from Maine, his term having just ended at the beginning of 1847. He practiced law and continued to be politically active after his failed reelection bid.

        The Cheap Edition of the Works of Charles Dickens

      , 1847. 1847. (10 of the 18 volumes published.) London: Chapman & Hall, 1847-1866. Original blind-stamped green cloth with spines elaborately gilt. Over the course of twenty years beginning in 1847 and ending in 1867, Chapman & Hall published the "Cheap Edition" of Dickens's works -- the first collected edition of Dickens's works -- beginning with those already published, and then adding others not long after Dickens wrote them. The "Cheap Edition" was intended for the less-well-to-do public, people who had not been able to afford the larger-size, fully-illustrated first editions. Importantly, Dickens made some revisions in his novels as he and C&H prepared each "Cheap" title, and in most cases he wrote a Preface expressly for this edition (there is also a frontispiece plate for each volume). The "Cheap" titles first came out in weekly and monthly parts (now virtually unobtainable in significant numbers); then they were issued in this green cloth with gilt-decorated spines (the hue and grain of the green cloth, as well as the blind-stamping pattern, changed slightly over the twenty-year span).~This group of ten titles (out of a total of 18) consists of the following:~THE POSTHUMOUS PAPERS OF THE PICKWICK CLUB, 1847 (the 1st title of the series). The plate is by C.R. Leslie; 6-page Preface by CD. Very good (spine ends show some wear, front endpaper cracked).~NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, 1848 (the 2nd title). Plate by T. Webster; 4-page Preface by CD. Near-fine (rear endpaper cracking).~OLIVER TWIST, 1850 (the 6th title). The plate is by George Cruikshank; 4-page Preface by CD. Rear endpaper cracking, otherwise about fine.~AMERICAN NOTES, 1850 (the 7th title). Plate by C. Stanfield; 2-page Preface by CD. Just about fine.~SKETCHES BY BOZ, 1850 (the 8th title). Plate by George Cruikshank; 1-page Preface by CD. Near-fine.~CHRISTMAS BOOKS, 1852 (the 9th title). Plate by John Leech (a larger version of his "Mr. Fezziwig's Ball"); 1-page Preface by CD. This "Cheap Edition" volume is considerably more valuable than the others, because it also comprises the First Collected Edition of Dickens's five Christmas books. Fine.~DOMBEY AND SON, 1858. Plate by H.K. Browne ("Phiz"); 2-page Preface by CD. Fine.~GREAT EXPECTATIONS, 1864. Plate by Marcus Stone (the first edition had been un-illustrated); no Preface. Near-fine (very minor wear at some edges).~A TALE OF TWO CITIES, 1864. Plate by Marcus Stone; 1-page Preface by CD. Just about fine.~HARD TIMES and PICTURES FROM ITALY, 1866. Plate by A.B. Houghton (the first edition of Hard Times had been un-illustrated); no Preface. Fine save for a cracked rear endpaper.~In all, a handsome gathering of more than half of the most-important collected edition of Charles Dickens's writings.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

VIII, 744; verzeichnet 5 Werke Vigitellos). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Journal of travels over the Rocky Mountains, to the mouth of the Columbia River; made during the years 1845 and 1846: containing minute descriptions of the valleys of the Willamette, Umpqua, and Clamet; a general description of Oregon Territory; its inhabitants, climate, soil, productions, etc., etc.; a list of necessary outfits for emigrants; and a table of distances from camp to camp on the route.

      J. A. and U. P. James, Cincinnati 1847 - First edition, third issue, with date changed in ink by Palmer himself from 1847 to 1848, without the errata slip tipped in at page 189, and with the later readings on p. 31 and 121, per Howes; 8vo, pp. viii, [9]-189; contemporary full sheep, black morocco label on spine; top 1" of spine chipped away, bottom of spine chipped; a good, sound copy. "Most reliable of the early guides to Oregon; in addition, the best narrative by a participant in the overland migration of 1845, which more than doubled the population of Oregon" (Howes). "Palmer makes no pretense of literary finish. He gives us a simple narrative of each day's happenings during his own first journey in 1845, taking especial care to indicate the route, each night's camping places, and all possible cut-offs, springs, grassy oases, and whatever else might conduce to the well-being of the emigrant and his beasts. The great care taken by the author, with this very practical end in view, results in his volume being the most complete description of the Oregon Trail that we now possess" (Ruben Thwaites in the 1906 Arthur Clark edition, pp. 15-16).

      Paris, Bureau des Populaire 1847.. 31 S. Bedruckter Orig.-Umschlag. 14,5 x 10 cm.. Fromm II, 4340. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe, übersetzt nach der fünften französischen Ausgabe. - Cabet (1788-1856), Mitglied der radikalen republikanischen Organisation der Carbonari, seit 1831 Deputierter und seit 1834 Herausgeber des Journals "Le Populaire", wurde während seines Exils in England 1834-39 mit den Grundsätzen Robert Owens bekannt. Sein 1842 veröffentlichtes Werk "Voyage en Icarie" zeichnet eine Gesellschaft als kommunistisches Idealbild. - Durch die zunehmende politische Isolation unter den sich in Paris bildenden kommunistischen Gruppen, Cabet war durch seine Egozentrik und seiner Streitsucht verrufen, beschloss er seine Utopien in den USA Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen. 1848 gründete er mit 500 Kolonisten in Nauvoo am Mississippi die nach seinen kommunistischen Idealen lebende Gemeinschaft "Ikarien", die allerdings bald durch seine stalinistischen Herrschaftsideen und Veruntreuung von Spendengeldern zerfiel. - Vorliegende Schrift skizziert in Stichworten die angestrebte ideale Gesellschaft, zum Schluss das "Lied der Ikarier, d. h. der unter des Verfassers Leitung nach Amerika auswandernden französischen Communisten" und einen Aufruf zur gemeinsamen Auswanderung, mit der dann alle Ikarier endlich froh werden. - Vorderer Umschlag in den Ecken etwas knickfaltig, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar!
