A sound and solid copy of this scarce early work drawn from his travels throughout Middle East and Europe. Text block edges are red. One copy noted in Library of Congress. This established his reputation as a poet..TAYLOR, Bayard, author, born in Kennett Square, Chester County, Pennsylvania, 11 January. 1825; died in Berlin, Germany, 19 December, 1878. He was the son of Joseph and Rebecca (Way) Taylor, and was of Quaker and South German descent. His first American ancestor, Robert Taylor, was a rich Quaker, who came over with Penn in 1681, and whose eldest son inherited land that now includes "Cedar-croft, " the poet's recent estate. His grandfather married a Lutheran of pure German blood, and was excommunicated by the Quakers. The poet's mother, although a Lutheran, was attached to the Quaker doctrines, and the Quaker speech and manners prevailed in her household. Bayard was named after James A. Bayard, of Delaware, and his first book bore on its title-page, through a mistake of Griswold, its editor, the name of "James Bayard Taylor. " After reaching his majority he always signed his name Bayard Taylor. His boyhood was passed near Kennett on a farm. He learned to read at four, began to write early, and from his twelfth year wrote "poems, novels, historical essays, but chiefly poem so" At the age of fourteen he studied Latin and French, and Spanish not long afterward. In 1837 the family removed to West Chester. There, and at Unionville, the youth had five years of high-school training. His first printed poem was contributed in 1841 to the "Saturday Evening Post, " Philadelphia. In 1842 he was apprenticed to a printer of West Chester. His contributions to the "Post" led to a friendship with Rufus W. Griswold, who was then connected with that paper and was also editor of " Graham's Magazine. " Griswold advised him concerning the publication of "Ximena, and other Poems" (Philadelphia, 1844) , which was dedicated to his adviser and sold by subscription. By this time he found a trade distasteful, and, to gratify his desire for travel and study in Europe, he bought his time of his employer. The "Post" and the " United States Gazette" each agreed to pay him fifty dollars in advance for twelve foreign letters. Graham bought some of his poems, and with one hundred and forty dollars thus collected he sailed for Liverpool, 1 July, 1844. Horace Greeley gave him a conditional order for letters to the "' Tribune, " of which he afterward wrote eighteen from Germany. His experiences abroad are well' condensed in his own language: "After landing in Liverpool, I spent three weeks in a walk through Scotland and the north of England, and then travelled through Belgium and up the Rhine to Heidelberg, where I arrived in September, 1844. The winter of 1844-'5 1 spent in Frankfort-on-the-Main, and by May I was so good a German that I was often not suspected of being a foreigner. I started off again on foot, a knapsack on my back, and visited the Brocken, Leipsic, Dresden, Prague, Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich, returning to Frankfort in July. A further walk over the Alps and through northern Italy took me to Florence, where I spent four months learning Italian. Thence I wandered, still on foot, to Rome and Civita Vecchia, where I bought a ticket as deck-passenger to Marseilles, and then tramped on to Paris through the cold winter rains. I arrived there in February, 1846, and returned to America after a stay of three months in Paris and London. I had been abroad for two years, and had supported myself entirely during the whole time by my literary correspondence. The remuneration which I received was in all five hundred dollars, and only by continual economy and occasional self-denial was I able to carry out my plan. " His letters were widely read, and shortly after his return were collected in "Views Afoot, or Europe seen with Knapsack and Staff" (New York, 1846). Six editions were sold within the year. In December, 1846, Taylor bought, with a friend as partner, a printing-office in his native county, and began to publish the Phoenixville "Pioneer. " But after a year he sold his newspaper and obtained a place on the New York "Tribune " in the literary department and as man-of-all-work. In December, 1848 (publ date 1849) , he published "Rhymes of Travel, Ballads, and Poems, " which gave him repute as a poet. ; 0 .

Membre du gouvernement provisoire constitué lors des journées révolutionnaires de février 1848, Louis Blanc (1811-1882) proposa la formation d'ateliers sociaux dont l'objectif était d'assurer un emploi aux travailleurs correspondant à leur compétence.

Uncut. 19pp. Stitched, later red cloth four fold chemise, all within a red morocco-backed cloth slipcase, titled in gilt on the spine Provenance: Henry Lafayette Dodge (1810-1856, inscription dated 1850, U.S. Indian Agent in New Mexico, killed by Apache) The rare first separate printing of California's first Constitution: this is one of the most important and difficult to obtain state Constitutions, and includes the very rare three-page "Address" found in only a few copies. "The first appearance of the Constitution in book form and one of the earliest works printed in San Francisco" (Cowan). This copy contains the very rare final signature of leaves issued only with some copies, which comprise a three-page "Address to the People of California" (pages 17-19). The Eberstadts describe these last three pages as lacking from most copies, and it appears that many copies of the constitution were distributed before the "Address" had been printed. Section 18 of Article I (the "Declaration of Rights") bans slavery. "The text was a model of advanced, liberal, and democratic social and political thought" (Howell). California became a state in 1850.

        Ohio Reformers Use Rhode Island's Dorr Rebellion to Justify Their Own Behavior

      [Columbus, Ohio] 1849 - Pamphlet. The Dorr Movement in Ohio; Being an Examination into the Causes, Progress and Probable Effects of the Revolutionary Course of Locofocoism in the Organization of the General Assembly of This State, for the Session of 1848-49. [Columbus, Ohio]: Legg & Murray, Columbus, [1849]. Disbound. Inscribed in pencil on the title by H.A. Swift, the author, in presentation. Historical Background The Locofocos were a faction that split from the New York Democratic party in 1835 after local disagreements with machine politicians and Tammany Hall's support of Andrew Jackson's stance on the national bank. They opposed state banks, monopolies, exclusive privilege, and other antidemocratic measures. They also advocated suspending paper money and legal protection of labor unions. In New York, the machine politicians ultimately prevailed by co-opting their principal issues and nominating fusion candidates and reabsorbing the dissidents by 1838.The anti-bank, anti-corporation, and increased democracy movement gained steam in neighboring Ohio throughout the 1840s, with many looking to the Dorr movement in Rhode Island as a template for their own acts.In 1841 Rhode Island's Thomas W. Dorr had led the effort to change Rhode Island's political system and expand voting rights. After trying to change the system internally, he created the People's Party, held an extralegal constitutional convention, and set up a competing government. The Rhode Island General Assembly drafted a rival constitution, and in 1842, both groups voted on their respective Constitutions. Both Dorr and sitting Governor Samuel Ward King were elected governor, but King refused to accept the People's Constitution, declared martial law, and accused Dorr of treason. While he did not attempt to seize the State House or governmental institutions, a few armed clashes did occur. Dorr fled the state, but returned and was convicted in 1843 but released for health reasons two years later. Ultimately, Rhode Island greatly liberalized voting rights in the aftermath of the rebellion.NAIP 358662. The American Antiquarian Society lists another edition, with slightly different imprint, with 1848 date.

Many pages of adds. All edges gilt. Foxing. Head and tail of spine chipped. Hail New York, Emperor of American cities: "Cities, as well as empires, after a successful rise and a period of glory, are destroyed by some convulsion, or gradually sink to decay. We have therefore confined our estimates to a period within which New-York seems as free from such dangers as human foresight can conceive. If her foreign commerce should be crippled or destroyed by war, her internal trade and other resources would be means of preservation and prosperity. If the ravages of ravages of pestilence or fire should desolute her borders, new population and capital would at once cover the breach. If civil commotions should rend the great American confederacy into separate republics, she is too power to fear dissolution in the conflict, and would still be the great metropolis of the continent. And she is too near the infancy of her growth, to experience, within the period of our estimates, the decline common to all cities and nations. Whatever may be her lot in future ages, New-York is doubtless destined to become the commercial emporium of the world." pp. 125. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bound in blue-green T cloth, elaborately blind-stamped, with gilt title to spine. Corners faintly rubbed, tiny hole to head of spine and slight dampstain to lower front cover on Volume I, occasional foxing throughout, as usual.

        Sanitary Reform: its general aspect and local importance, considered in a Lecture delivered at the New Queen's Theatre, Adelaide.

      John Stephens, Adelaide 1849 - Octavo, 64 pp., very good in modern brown quarter morocco. Personal attacks on local landholders. Rare printed lecture on "sanitary reform" which includes a detailed discussion of the streets and houses of Adelaide. The writer John Stephens was a South Australian identity, and regularly packed the lecture halls to deliver speeches on any manner of subjects. Never averse to controversy, this lecture is a prime example of his style, with extensive notes on the latest news from the "mother-country", interspersed with personal attacks on local landholders and builders who continue to knock up sub-standard houses: Mr. Peacock's buildings on Hindley Street are singled out, for example, Clarke's brewery is an "abominable nuisance", as is the butcher in Currie Street with his noisome piggery, and he can barely fathom the horrors of the Port Lincoln Hotel. Stephens comments in his preface that the lecture lasted some three hours, and was listened to throughout with rapt attention; one suspects that some in his audience were concerned that they were about to be publicly shamed. As with his earlier lecture on comets, this is also very rare. It was given gratis to subscribers to Stephens' paper in an overt attempt to drum up support for his schemes.

        Pendennis

      1849 - A lovely library set of Thackeray in a great binding. William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863),English novelist best known for writing satirical novels such as Vanity Fair. During the Victorian era he was second only to Dickens in popularity. The History of Henry Esmond tells the story of the eponymous hero, his participation in the unsuccessful campaign of the Old Pretender, and his eventual marriage to his cousin and foster-mother, Rachel, Lady Castlewood. They emigrate to Virginia and Thackeray's novel, The Virginians continues the story of the family but from the point of view of Henry's grandsons, George and Henry. The History of Pendennis concerns the romantic entanglements of Arthur Pendennis or Pen, his foster sister Laura and various other acquaintances. Pen is also the narrator of two later novels, The Newcomes and The Adventures of Philip. Please note that this collection of Thackeray's work contains the following: Henry Esmond (two volumes, complete), The Adventures of Philip (two volumes, complete), The Four Geroges (one volume, complete), The Humourists (one volume, complete), Pendennis (volumes one and three only), The Newcomes (volume four only), The Virginians (volumes three and four only). These volumes were previously owned by Robert Lindsay, and contain his bookplate. Ronald Lindsay served as British Ambassador to the United States of America 1929-39. Condition: The bindings aretight and firm with the boards and all internal pages securely attached. There is some mild wear to the extremities including some rubbing,and some marks to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright withthe oddbrown spotorhandling mark. There is a bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume (asdescribed above). The overallcondition of these volumesis very good indeed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NEUER PRAKTISCHER WEGWEISER FUR AUSWANDERER NACH NORD-AMERIKA IN DREI ABTHEILUNGEN.

      Mainz. . 1849 - Three volumes bound in one. [8],120pp. plus five plates (including frontispiece); [4],153,[1]pp. plus frontispiece and colored folding map; [4],106pp. plus folding map. Original brown cloth, stamped in blind and gilt, expertly rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Scattered foxing. Paper restoration in upper margin of pp.1-2 in the first part, not affecting text. Overall, a very good copy. In a half morocco box. The second issue of Schmolder's work, the first having been published the previous year without the maps and one of the plates. Collations are otherwise identical, and it is possible that the same sheets were used. The author went overland from Missouri to California in 1843, and evidently worked with John Sutter on a scheme for colonization. This occupies the first part of the work, while the second is devoted to the Middle West, particularly Missouri and Texas, and the third to Iowa. Schmolder's advice to immigrants includes information regarding New Orleans as an entrance point. The map entitled "Die vereinigten Staaten von Nord- Amerika & Mexico." is entirely handcolored, with the states and territories differentiated. The large "Topographische Karte von Iowa" shows the region along the west bank of the Mississippi River. Streeter's copy contained a map of the West in the first part, but it is almost never found with the book. A very rare work, of great importance to Continental immigration. WHEAT GOLD RUSH 178.

With the author&#146;s 40 illustrations in steel or wood engraving. 8vo, in a Bayntun-Riviere binding of full crushed black morocco, with beautiful intricate blind stamped decorations on the covers surrounded by a gilt border, and with gilt lettering and botanical tooled designs along a paneled spine between gilt-stippled raised bands, gilt inner dentelles and botanic borders on turn-ins and board edges gilt tooled, a.e.g., and with the original cloth covers and spine bound in at end. xvi, 624 + [1] illus. at end. A very fine copy in an extremely attractive fresh and attractive binding. An especially attractive copy of this important work of 19th century literature. Thackeray used the novel&#146;s Napoleonic era and its setting within a worldly society to mirror the society of his own with great success. Though prior being well published as both a writer and illustrator, largely in Punch, this was Thackeray&#146;s first novel of significance. It cemented his position within the canon of 19th century writers and still remains his most famous and popular. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

      San Francisco: Printed at the Office of the Alta California, . 1849 - 19pp. Gathered signatures, with only a remnant of the stitching remaining. A few small holes in the titlepage, touching eight letters of text (mostly on the Proclamation printed on the verso). Text stained and soiled. Chip in lower margin of pp.5-8, touching two letters of text. Withal, a good copy, untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth box. The rare first separate printing of California's first constitution. "The first appearance of the Constitution in book form and one of the earliest works printed in San Francisco" - Cowan. This copy contains the very rare final signature of leaves issued only with some copies, which comprise a three- page "Address to the People of California" (pages 17-19). The Eberstadts describe these last three pages as lacking from most copies, and it appears that many copies of the constitution were distributed before the "Address" had been printed. The text of the constitution is complete. Section 18 of Article I (the "Declaration of Rights") bans slavery. "The text was a model of advanced, liberal, and democratic social and political thought" - Howell. California became a state in 1850. One of the most important and difficult to obtain state constitutions, with the very rare three-page "Address" found in only a few copies. COWAN, p.140. SABIN 9998. WAGNER CALIFORNIA IMPRINTS 37.
