        Past, The Present, and The Future

      1848 - CAREY, Henry. The Past, The Present, and The Future. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1848. Octavo, original blind-stamped green cloth. $1500.First English edition of this important economic treatise by "the American apostle of optimism" (Roll, 275).Although Carey began his career in political economy as a die-hard supporter of the free market, in 1844, "he renounced his belief in laissez-faire for good in his book Past, Present and Future (1848) despite the fact that during this era the idea of free trade was gathering considerable momentum worldwide" (ANB). A founder of the so-called "nationalist school," Carey's ideology came to resemble the Utopian European social reform school so popular in the Scandinavian countries and Western Europe. "In his Past, Present, and Future, Carey announced a law of production from land the exact reverse of Ricardo's. With a great wealth of illustration, he laid down the principle that, in the progress of society, men first till the easily worked and poorer solids, and descend upon the richer lands as capital and numbers increase, so that with the advance of the community the rate of return from the land rises instead of falling" (Palgrave I:226). The work was so controversial that John Stuart Mill wrote Principles of Political Economy to refute it. With publisher's catalogue. The first American edition was published the same year. Early owner inscription. Bookseller's ticket. Binder's ticket.Slight dampstaining to endpapers, a few finger smudges to text, faint spotting to rear board, and toning and a bit of wear to extremities of original cloth. An extremely good copy.

        Vanity Fair A Novel without a Hero

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1848. With Illustrations on Steel and Wood by the Author. Octavo. Original blue-green fine diaper-grain cloth professionally refurbished at joints and extremities of gilt lettered spine, covers and spine with ornamental blind stamping, yellow coated endpapers. Housed in a custom made green cloth solander box. Engraved vignette title page, frontispiece, 38 plates and wood-engraved illustrations throughout by Thackeray. Spine sunned, offsetting from plates to text, customary foxing. A particularly attractive copy in the original cloth, with the preliminary advertisement leaf for The Great Hoggarty Diamond. First edition in book form. A fine association copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Frederick Greenwood, January 1st 1849". Frederick Greenwood (1830-1909), author and newspaper editor, succeeded Thackeray as editor of the Cornhill magazine in 1862 after the latter resigned. He was also the moving force behind the Pall Mall Gazette. Greenwood had a close personal and working relationship with Thackeray as Denis Duval, Thackeray's last work, was serialised in the Cornhill under Greenwood's stewardship. He also sought to defend Thackeray's reputation after his death: "Some extracts from the Duval notebook [showing Thackeray's assiduous researches for that novel] were published as a tail-piece to the novel's incomplete serialization in the Cornhill, by Frederick Greenwood in 1864. Greenwood used the notebook as support for some acute speculations as to how Thackeray would have continued Duval, had he lived. But Greenwood was also concerned with larger issues than plot forecast. It was his intention to vindicate Thackeray as a conscientious craftsman, and to refute what he called 'a too-hasty notion which we believe to have been pretty generally accepted: namely that Mr. Thackeray took little pains in the construction of his works'. According to Greenwood, the eighteen pages of entries in the Duval notebook conclusively demonstrated 'that [Thackeray] very industriously did take pains'" (John Sutherland, "The Genesis of Thackeray's Denis Duval" in The Review of English Studies, New Series, Vol. 37, No 146). This copy also bears testament to Greenwood's long-standing regard for Thackeray, as he would have purchased it as a 18-year old publisher's reader. Of Vanity Fair's traditional points of issue this copy has "Mr Pitt" for "Sir Pitt" (on page 453, line 31), although, as it was originally published in twenty parts between January 1847 and July 1848, a number of these points would have been amended before serialization was completed and the book form issued by the publisher.

      1848. first edition. Time, Consoler of Affliction and Softener of Anger"Scarce in the 'Primary' Cloth BindingDICKENS, Charles. Dombey and Son. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. First edition, first issue with the 'eight-line errata' (following all but a very few of the points in Smith), in book form of Dickens' seventh novel, bound from the original monthly parts, with stab-holes present in the inner margins of gatherings. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 1/2 in; 222 x 138 mm). xvi, [1, errata], [1, blank], 624 pp. Engraved frontispiece, titlepage, and thirty-eight plates after Hablot K. Browne ("Phiz") including the 'dark' plate "On the Dark Road", facing p. 547.Some of the plates with light foxing, mainly marginal, otherwise a very clean and partially uncut example.Publisher's 'primary' binding of moderate olive-green fine-diaper grain cloth; the front and back covers entirely stamped in blind with a three-line border which encloses a rectangular frame that occupies the length of the covers. The frame contains an ornament of leaves and stems in each corner and a chain-like design that runs along its inner edge; each segment of the chain encloses a four-headed flower and is bordered by a nipple. The spine is lettered in gilt and stamped in blind with a thick band at its top and bottom and four rectangular panels. Original pale orange-yellow coated endpapers. With nearly all of the 'internal flaws' mentioned by Smith uncorrected. Front joint, head and tail of spine and inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, spine slightly faded. An excellent example, far better than is usually seen, of this now hard to find Dickens novel in the original cloth. "Dombey and Son originally appeared in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly parts, the last forming a double number, from October 1846 - April 1848. It was published in book form on April 12, 1848. at 21s.Dombey and Son contains the first published example of a so-called dark plate, which was created by a machine process that tinted the etched plate and heightened its black-and-white contrast. The one dark plate in Dombey and Son is "On the Dark Road," p. 547. The smooth blending of light and shadow on this illustration vividly contrasts it with the other illustrations in the novel and is a fine example of the dark plate process." (Smith).Smith I:8.

        General Epistle from the Council of the Twelve Apostles, to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Abroad, Dispersed Throughout the Earth.

      [Printed by the Daily Missouri Republican] [1848], [Saint Louis] - 8pp. Octavo [22 cm] No covers with eleven stab holes at the left margin from being previously bound with other material. The first leaf has been printed off center with a few words of text cut at the foot of the first page near the right margin. Otherwise a clean copy of this rare work. Housed in a custom linen clamshell. This epistle marks the beginning of Mormonism in Utah. The epistle recounts the troubles in Nauvoo, and the subsequent evacuation. It also announces the establishment of the LDS headquarters in the Great Salt Lake Valley. The epistle also urges Saints converging upon the Great Basin to bring whatever they may to help the settlement flourish. According to Crawley: "General Epistle from the Council of the Twelve Apostles marks the beginning of Mormonism's Utah period. Issued fifty-three days after Brigham Young and most of the Twelve returned to Winter Quarters following their trek to the Great Salt Lake Valley, it opens with an account of the evacuation of Nauvoo, the settling of the Iowa camps, the call of the Mormon Battalion, and the overland journey of the pioneer company. It announces the establishment of a new home for the Latter-day Saints, describes the Salt Lake Valley, and calls upon the Saints to gather 'on the east side of the Missouri River, and, if possible, be ready to start from hence by the first of May next, or as soon as grass is sufficiently grown, and go to the Great Salt Lake City.' It counsels those unable to move to the Valley the following summer to settle for a time near Council Bluffs, urges the European Saints to immigrate speedily, by way of New Orleans to the Bluffs, and ask all those coming west to bring whatever seeds, plants, livestock, tools, machinery, books, maps, charts and scientific instruments they can to the Valley."

        TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      Washington: C.W. Fenton, 1848. Broadside, 19 x 12 inches. Printed in three columns of dense text. Light foxing, primarily to top edge. Very good. Description of the design of the Washington National Monument, with an announcement from the Washington National Monument Society that construction has commenced with the laying of the cornerstone on July 4, 1848. Though the importance of memorializing George Washington had been recognized shortly after his death (Samuel Blodgett's broadside of 1801 aimed to accomplish the very same), it was during the 100th-year anniversary of his birth that gave renewed impetus to the attempts of the American people to celebrate his life and accomplishments. Inspired by his loyalty, patriotism, and selfless leadership during and after the Revolutionary War, concerned citizens gathered in 1833 and formed the Washington National Monument Society, the sole purpose of which was to erect a fitting monument in Washington's name. By 1836, Richard Mills had been chosen as the architect; but under heavy criticism of the design as well as the estimated cost, the project halted until 1848, when President Zachary Taylor laid the first cornerstone and construction finally began. By 1854 donations ceased and the project was once again stalled, and it was not until 1884 that Washington saw its monument complete. The present broadside describes the proposed monument in great detail, giving exact specifications for all its measurements and edifices: "This Design embraces the idea of a grand circular colonnaded building 250 feet in diameter, and 100 feet high, from which springs an obelisk shaft 70 feet at the base and 500 feet high, making a total elevation of 600 feet....In the centre of the Monument is placed the tomb of Washington, to receive his remains, should they be removed thither, the descent to which is by a broad flight of steps lighted by the same light which illumines his statue." Washington remained buried at Mount Vernon even after the Monument was finished. A handsome document describing the grand memorial to our Founding Father.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS HART BENTON, DISCUSSING THE FRENCH REVOLUTION OF 1848]

      Washington, 1848. [2]pp. plus integral blank. Folio. Old fold lines. Lightly soiled. About very good. In a tan cloth folder, gilt leather label. Senator Thomas Hart Benton writes to "Messrs. Stubbs, Ennis, Sheaham, &c., a committee, &c.," discussing the French Revolution of 1848, in which he mentions the Marquis de Lafayette's desire for democracy for the French people. The Revolution of 1848 saw an end to the French monarchy and the beginnings of the Second Republic. The Republic, however, lacked strong organization and leadership, and in 1851, President Louis Napoleon disbanded the elected assembly and declared himself Napoleon III. The second French empire would last until 1871, when the Third Republic was established, which lasted until World War II. In 1848, however, feelings were high and positive, as shown in this letter by Benton. He writes: "Above fifty years ago Lafayette said to the Constituent Assembly of France: 'For a people to be free, it is sufficient that they will it.' These brief, but profound words, have just had their impressive realization on the very spot on which that disciple of Washington spoke them. The French Revolution of 1848 is one of Will. The People willed it! and it came! and the first act of the Provisional Government, for the future government of France, is one of deference to the national Will. A national election is ordered, and the whole question of their future government is referred to the votes of the French people. If, in that election, the expression of the national Will shall correspond with its present manifestation, then the fate of France is fixed by those who have a right to fix it, and wo[e] to the sacrilegious hand that touches this work." Thomas Hart Benton (1782-1858) was a Missouri Senator and statesman who served in the U.S. Senate for thirty years, during the crucial years leading up to the Civil War (1821-51). Prior to his service in the Senate he fought in the War of 1812 and fought several duels, including one sword and pistol brawl with Andrew Jackson, though he later became a Jackson supporter and a staunch Democrat. He broke with his party, however, over slavery and secession, staunchly arguing for preservation of the Union.

He defined the status of samurai during the peaceful times of the Tokugawa period and expressed his views on the "Way of Samurai". "Complete Writings of Teachings on Military Affairs", written in 1656, was a collection of his teachings on military affairs. It also includes several illustrations of battle formations.
