The early issues reprinted serialized material pirated from English authors such as Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, and the Brontë sisters. The magazine soon was publishing the work of American artists and writers in a variety of fields, articles alphabetically arranged by title (e.g. Aeronatuics, Early; Alchemist, the New; Arab, A Street; and Aurora Borealis or Polar Light, with 19 illlustrations in Volume 39, 1869).

        Essays, from Abroad, Translations and Fragments.

      London: Edward Moxon, 1850. First edition of this collection of essays by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Edited by Mrs. Shelley. Octavo, bound in contemporary three-quarters morocco over marbled boards, gilt titles to the spine, gilt top edge, marbled endpapers. Complete with half titles. In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear. Percy Bysshe Shelley was one of the major English Romantic poets, and is regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language, and one of the most influential. A radical in his poetry as well as in his political and social views, Shelley did not see fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley was a key member of a close circle of visionary poets and writers that included Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, Thomas Love Peacock, and his own second wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.

        IN MEMORIAM

      London: Edward Moxon, 1850. Called by Hayward and most others the FIRST EDITION (though called the Second Edition by Tinker, as it followed a privately circulated issue), this an early state (see below). This is a beautifully bound copy of the famous elegiac poem written as a tribute to Tennyson's college friend, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-33), son of the famous historian Henry Hallam (1777-1859). Tennyson's first verses had been published before he was 20, but after Hallam's death, he published nothing for nine years, although all the while he was working on this poem, the product of protracted meditation. Written in rhyming quatrains, the poem moves from grief and doubt to certainty that the universe is purposeful. It was a sensational best-seller, striking a deep note of resonance with Victorian readers and the queen herself, who told the poet that "Next to the Bible, 'In Memoriam' is my comfort." Thomson says that the work "has been discussed from every point of view--proof of the profound influence it exercised over English thought for half a century." The work had major repercussions in Tennyson's professional and personal lives. It inspired Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, to petition that its author be named Poet Laureate of the realm, to succeed the recently deceased Wordsworth. And it left Tennyson financially secure enough to enter the married life, a step that had been delayed for 10 years for pecuniary reasons. Our copy is an early state with two errors later corrected: p. 2, line 13 reads "And gazing on the sullen tree" rather than "And gazing on thee, sullen tree"; p. 198, line 3 has "baseness" in place of "bareness." The superbly executed binding is unsigned, but the high-quality materials and workmanship would indicate a leading bindery. Given the work's American provenance, it was perhaps done by someone like Matthews, the Club Bindery, or an artisan who trained in one of those workshops. Former owner Frank Babbott (1854-1933) was an American businessman, collector, and patron of the arts. He edited the poetry anthology, "Classic English Odes from Spenser to Tennyson." It is baffling that this binding is not signed: it is probably the most beautiful, elaborately decorated, and skillfully executed unsigned binding we have ever owned.. 174 x 108 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/4"). vii, [i], 210 pp. Called by Hayward and most others the FIRST EDITION (though called the Second Edition by Tinker, as it followed a privately circulated issue), this an early state (see below). EXTREMELY FINE CONTEMPORARY DARK BROWN MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT IN THE FANFARE STYLE, covers with inlaid tan morocco strapwork frame creating oval and geometric compartments tooled with sprays of laurel leaves, large central oval with title and initials of Tennyson and Hallam, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with inlaid central oval enclosed by gilt laurel leaves and small tools, gilt titling, SCARLET MOROCCO DOUBLURES AND ENDLEAVES, doublures with gilt laurel wreath at center, that at front inscribed "In Memoriam / A. H. H. / obit MDCCCXXXIII," leafy sprays at corners, top edge gilt. In a suede-lined brown marbled paper slipcase. Front flyleaf with engraved bookplate of Frank L. Babbott. Thomson 18; Hayward 246; Tinker 2066; Grolier English 89; Ashley Library VII, 117-18; Lowndes IV, 2604. Spine evenly sunned to light brown, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the text clean, fresh, and bright with very ample margins, the binding unworn and shining with gold.

        The Personal History of David Copperfield

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1850. First edition of "the most perfect of all the Dickens novels" (Virginia Woolf). Octavo, bound by Bayntun Bindery in three quarters morocco over cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With frontispiece, engraved title-page and 38 plates inserted throughout. Plates by H.K. Browne. In very good condition. With many lovers of the author's works David Copperfield ranks as the finest of his writings. With a book which gave to the world such characters as Betsy Trotwood, Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick.... it would be strange if it had been otherwise" (Eckel, 77). "Dickens and Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "most popular success" (Hodnett, 111-12). "Charles Dickens and Hablot Knight Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "most popular success" (Hodnett, 111-12).

        A Letter to the Queen on a Late Court Martial, With Long Inscription

Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood & Sons/William Benning & Co., 1850. xiii, 262 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Original limp cloth, recently rebacked, blind frames to covers, gilt title to front cover, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to corners. Light toning to text, inscriptions from Warren to front free endpaper, head of title page, entire verso of title page and head of following leaf. $1,750. * Only edition. Warren, an attorney and legal reformer, is best known as the author of Ten Thousand A-Year (1841), a satirical novel about English law. A Letter to the Queen is an ardent defense of Capt. George Douglas, who was accused on lying to a fellow office. Warren withdrew it from the market shortly after its publication. Warren inscribed our copy to his son, Samuel Lilckendy Warren on September 13, 1858. His detailed inscription expresses his embarrassment from this case. At the top of the title Warren has written: "Withdrawn from circulation-the reasons are explained on the back of this page. N.B. Every line of the proofs was carefully corrected by Lord Brougham.... I have the original proofs still by me." Warren was indignant at the perceived injustice and procedural flaws in his trial. This opinion was shared by Lord Brougham, who addressed the House of Lords about this case. As indicated by Warren's inscription, his work benefited from Brougham's advice and editorial assistance. Shortly after the publication of A Letter, "all was ruined by the infamous conduct of Mr. Douglas in eloping from Cheltanham with the daughter of a gentleman who wrote me in anguish & horror, that it was this letter of mine which gained Mr. Douglas admission to the house which he had desecrated. The news nearly broke my heart.... All my six months gratuitous labour & anxiety, my sacrifice of an entire long vacation, my expence in printing, publishing and adorning this "Letter"--my having risked the enmity of the Duke of Wellington & many other persons (including the Queen)--all thrown away in one moment by the profligate act of one I had done so much to serve...." Warren goes on to relate further embarrassment, the c.

        Der Arbeiter politische Ökonomie, gegründet auf die Principien unabänderlicher Gerechtigkeit und unveräußerlicher Menschenrechte; bestimmt zur Beförderung der National Reform. Übersetzt aus dem Englischen von O. Benckendorff.

      St. Louis, MO, (N. R. Cormany), 1850. - 8vo. 200 pp. Contemporary red marbled boards. Sole German edition of this political and economical manifesto by John Pickering (1777-1846) from Massachusetts, equally appreciated as a lawyer and as a linguist. The English original ("The working man’s political economy, founded upon the principle of immutable justice, and the inalienable rights of man; designed for the promotor of national reform") was published posthumously in 1847, a year after Pickering’s death, which fact may have contributed to the unremarkable impact the work had at the time. More than a century later it enjoyed a modest revival when it was reprinted in the series "American labor from conspiracy to collective bargaining" in 1971. The German translation has remained even more obscure and cannot be traced bibliographically or in the trade; library catalogues list a single copy (Duke University Library). - Browned and brownstained (the title page more so), but well preserved. Cf. Kress C 7178 (only the English original). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
