1858Paris: Garnier Fréres, 1858. [4],344pp.,in 12mo broché,couvertures imprimées conservées,petits manques au dos,trés rare. Minor foxing. Very good. A captivating account of the failed socialist utopian community at Reunion, written by the group's physician. "In 1853 Victor Considerant and Albert Brisbane journeyed by horseback through Texas, and Considerant returned to Europe full of plans for creating a utopian socialist colony there. He raised over a million francs and purchased 47,000 acres in Texas. In 1855 he returned with colonists and established the settlement of La Reunion near Dallas. Subsequently, close to 500 colonists settled there. These included writes, musicians, artists, artisans, and free spirits, but only two farmers. As might be expected, a couple of years of utopian bickering and successive Texas droughts brought the experiment to a speedy collapse. The colony was abandoned, and Considerant moved to San Antonio, where he lived until 1869 when he returned to France. Many of the colonists at La Reunion were well-educated, and Julie Considerant organized a salon in a cedar brake along the banks of the Trinity, where the colonists met to discuss the ideas of Fourier, Proudhon, Cabet, Sue, Hugo, and other writers and philosophers. Some colonists brought with them extensive libraries, several of which have found their way into university libraries in Texas" - Jenkins. The experiment at Reunion was to be one of the first exercises in practical communism. Considerant, well known in European progressive circles, was an intimate of Marx and some have suggested … [Click Below for Full Description]

1858 - Manuscript on Second Opium War - China
China, 1858. Manuscript letters containing firsthand accounts of the First Battle of Taku Forts in May, and the Battle of Canton in December, with shocking details of brutality, penned by a participant in the latter, a marine serving in China on HMS Surprise, identified only as Thomas. 8vo. Two letters and one partial letter, 10 pages combined. Single and double leafs, blue tissue-like letter paper measuring approximately 13 x 21 cm. The recipient of this correspondence is Julia, the writer's wife and mother of his children, one of whom he refers to a "Little Thomas." HMS Surprise, a British gunboat, had on 4 May 1857 departed England for anti-slavery duties on the West Coast of Africa. Her commission was soon changed however, being redirected to serve on the Coast of China where the Second Opium War was intensifying and the British government was preparing to launch offensives against the Chinese. On 13 November she 1857 arrived in Hong Kong. Captain Samuel Gurney Cresswell, commanded the ship, which was to intended to be used as a despatch steamer. As revealed in the present correspondence, however, HMS Surprise and her crew saw much frontline action in the Second Opium War, participating in at least two pivotal engagements - the First Battle of Taku Forts and the Battle of Canton. A firsthand account of the Battle of Canton, 28-31 December 1857, is described by the mariner in the earliest letter of the lot, a partial letter which includes a mention of the death of Captain William Thornton Bate, Commander of HMS Actaeon who was killed while storming the walls of … [Click Below for Full Description]

ANON.
Groombridge and Sons. Manchester: Abel Heywood. Liverpool: Joseph Shepherd. Edinburgh: James Hogg and Sons; Oliver and Boyd; John Menzies. Glasgow: Thomas Murray and Son; William Love. Dublin: William Robertson., London, 1858. 8vo. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. iv + [364] pp., each story having separate pagination. Bound in original half morocco over marbled boards, rebacked in black morocco with original endpapers, spine in compartments, decorated gilt with contrasting maroon morocco title label, gilt. Some wear to extremities of boards but otherwise a good copy. Inscription of W. A. J. Gould and number 150 on front pastedown, repeated on title page. A collection of tales of mystery and imagination, only one by Poe himself, The Pit and The Pendulum; the others are by unknown authors. In fact the whole work is rather mysterious with its multiple publishers and unusual layout with what appears to be an analytical index at the front with no page references as each article is separately paginated. The break in the gatherings of ten and the restarting of the sequence may mark the change of publication date from 1857-58 as it originally appears to have been issued in at least two sections. The source and authorship of all the stories is nowhere recorded but the numerous joint publishers may represent the copyright holders. Certainly it is a scarce work and COPAC records only four copies, in the British Library, Oxford, Cambridge and the National Library of Scotland.

Contemporary cloth blocked in blind, spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt lettering on spine, 8 pp. of advertisements (uncut). Engraved portrait of Shelley after Clint with guard at front, 3 further engravings. Very light rubbing on extremities, particularly spine, tips lightly bumped. An excellent copy. First edition. This celebrated biographical memoir of Shelley and Byron by Edward Trelawny (1792-1881), the adventurer and Romantic tagalong who involved himself in the lives and deaths of both Byron and Shelley, records the final few years of Percy Shelley and Lord Byron's lives from 1821 until 1822 and 1824 respectively. He subsequently wrote several biographical memoirs such as this that helped to shape posterity's perception of the people involved. Recollections of the Last Days of Shelley and Byron, rewritten in 1878 under the title of Records of Shelley, Byron, and the Author, made Trelawny famous amongst the Victorians "who found in him a link to the mighty dead whose early reputations for freethinking and free living they had sanitized" (ODNB).

David Livingstone
Harper & Brothers, New York, 1858.Scot David Livingstone (1813 – 1873) was THE African explorer in the 19th century. Livingstone was active in Africa from the 1840s until his death in 1873 in what is today Zambia. He was very active in several major central African Christian missionary initiatives carried forward in the era of the European "Scramble for Africa". He disappeared from sight late in his life and was “discovered” by Henry Morton Stanley on November 10, 1871 who greeted Livingston with the famous phrase "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?". This is the First American Edition of one of the most important nineteenth century accounts of African exploration. While exploring the Zambesi River, he discovered the famous Victoria Falls in November, 1855. This book, 732 pages, has a fold out landscape outline as well as two fold-out maps of South Africa as well as many illustrations of the “Dark Continent”. It is bound in half leather with marbled boards, end papers and fore edges. This book is in fine condition and is a very attractive specimen of a major nineteenth century exploration work. A gorgeous copy of a famous and important book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Two letters and one partial letter, 10 pages combined. Single and double leafs, blue tissue-like letter paper measuring approximately 13 x 21 cm.

Fahne, A. [Anton F.]:
Cöln: J. M. Heberle (Heinrich Lempertz) 1858. 432 Seiten. Mit fast 1200 Wappen in Schwarzweiß und über 1300 Familien-Stammbäumen überwiegend in Hochformat, einige doppelseitig, 1 mehrfach gefaltet. Druck in Fraktur. Gr. 2° (46 x 28,5 cm). Halblederband der Zeit auf 6 Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, Buntpapierbezug, marmoriertem Vorsatz und bläulich marmoriertem Schnitt. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Anton F. Fahne, geb. 1805 in Münster, gestorben 1883 in Düsseldorf, war ein deutscher Jurist, der sich auch als Historiker und Genealoge betätigte. Sein genealogisches Werk ist von ungeheurem Umfang, seine einzelnen Werke zeugen von lokalpatriotischer Gesinnung. Fahne erreichte durch die Heirat mit Julie Stommel vermutlich eine nicht unbedeutende gesellschaftliche Aufwertung seiner Person. Interessanterweise setzte er alles daran, die Bedeutung der alten Adelsfamilien, die für seinesgleichen die Träger der alten Gesellschaftsordnung und damit auch die Träger der rheinisch-westfälischen Geschichte waren, zu erhalten und möglichst zu erhöhen. Immer wieder versuchte er, rheinisch-westfälische Werte gegenüber den „ostländischen“ zu schützen, wohl aus der tief empfundenen Bedrohung, dass jene Werte unter der mächtigen aber fernen preußischen Regierung zur Bedeutungslosigkeit herabsinken würden. Doch schon zu Lebzeiten musste sich Fahne vielfach den Vorwurf verfälschter Darstellungen gefallen lassen. Trotzdem werden seine genealogisch-historischen Ausarbeitungen auch heute noch relativ häufig und oft sogar kritiklos zitiert. Ironischerweise bleibt in Fahnes Leben selbst Vieles n … [Click Below for Full Description]
