The French Socialist and anarchist Malon (1841-93) was a member of the French section of the First International, in which he sided with Proudhon and Bakunin, against the Marxists. Active in organising factory workers and strikes, he was sentenced to prison in 1868 and 1870. Released after the fall of Napoléon III, Malon helped organise relief for the poor during the Prussian siege of Paris. He joined the "Republican Central Committee" which united Proudhonists with followers of Auguste Blanqui. In 1871 he was elected to the National Assembly of the new Third Republic, but he resigned in protest against the peace treaty, which ceded Alsace-Lorraine to Prussia. After the suppression of the Commune he escaped to Lugano. Following an amnesty in 1880 he returned, and in 1885 founded the journal "Revue Socialiste". - Endpapers foxed, otherwise only slightly browned.

        Twenty Broadsheet Ballads

      These are original broadsheet ballads, crudely printed on cheap paper, measuring about 4 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Some of them have the slug of P. Brereton, Printer, on Exchange St. in Dublin. Listings on OCLC suggest he worked in the 1860s - 1880s. Interestingly, one of the ballads is \"Lines Written on the Most Dreadful Fire that Broke Out in Chicago in America. Composed by Jeramiah Cronan.\" So that piece, at least, was published after 1871. The ballads are tipped onto heavy folio sheets and attractively bound in quarter calf over boards.

        Democratic Vistas

      Washington, D.C: [Printed for J. S. Redfield, New York] 1871 - Original green wrappers. A near fine copy. FIRST EDITION. One of about 500 copies. In these essays on democracy and individualism, Whitman provides both an outline for an American cultural order and a statement of his own literary ideals. He discusses the impact of westward expansion on the American character while condemned the corruption and greed of the Gilded Age. He writes: “Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us.” His solution to the moral crisis is literature: “Two or three really original American poets would give more compaction and more moral identity, (the quality to-day most needed) to these States, than all its Constitutions, legislative and judicial ties,” he declared, believing that literature would unite the country. “Never was anything more wanted than, to-day, and here in The States, the Poet of the Modern is wanted, or the great Literatus of the Modern.” [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Without the errata slip. viii, 198pp. Montreal: Pr. by John Lovell, Cowans travelled extensively throughout the globe, but in particular in Canada, India, South America and the Arabian Gulf. In his narrative he pays particular attention to life under sail and its perils: fire on board ship, man overboard, hurricanes etc.etc. There is also a highly coloured account of a race across the Atlanic won by 90 minutes. Of particular interest though is his account of a visit to the Sultan of Muscat (pp112-133). Cowans describes the harbour and town of Muscat in some detail, but he devotes most of his narrative to his audience with the Sultan, with whom he was most impressed. ? a man of about forty-five years of age, with a frank open countenance, and decidedly faire complexioned, he looks exceedingly well in his white flowing robes and magnificent turban?

        Coup d'œil sur les incendies de Constantinople

      Constantinople: de Castro,, 1871. Octavo (196 x 133 mm), lithographic title + 29 pp. Original pink paper wrappers, printed in black. Mild denting to wrappers and text, wrappers slightly faded, a few tiny spots to spot, minuscule manuscript correction (probably the author's) to p. 17. A very good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy of this extremely rare pamphlet written in response to the 1870 Pera fire (the "Harik-i kabir"), inscribed by the author "A Mr. le Profr. Marzolo, hommage" on the front wrapper. This must be Francesco Marzolo (1818–1880), who taught medicine at the University of Padua, rather than his more famous brother, Paolo, who also taught languages, including Arabic and Turkish, although Zennaro may have been taught by him too. The fire began on Feridiye Sokagi shortly after midday on 5 June and "took only six hours to destroy two thirds of the quarter, killing thousands and destroying countless buildings" (Boyar & Fleet, A Social History of Ottoman Istanbul, p. 78). In response the government proposed an extensive remodelling of the local area, though the plan was only partially implemented. Zennaro, an Italian physician evidently long-resident in the city, estimates that approximately 8,500 houses were destroyed (more recent accounts have suggested 3,000), with some 2,500 dead, and accuses certain parties of having a vested interest in maintaining inadequate fire safety, including merchants and architects. He also surveys the use of building materials, the layout of the city's streets, water provision, and emergency procedures, and recommends the safer storage of oil and gas, the use of stone instead of wood, the widening of streets, a reformed fire service, and a regulated professional body of municipal architects. A highly important document in the social history of the Ottoman capital, otherwise untraced in libraries and commerce.

        Woman's Work. With Special Reference to Industrial Employment.

      London: Victoria Press,, 1871. A paper read by Emily Faithfull, at the meeting of the Society of Arts, March 29th, 1871. [Together with:] A clipped signature of Emily Faithfull. Octavo (210 x 137 mm), pp. 20. Disbound. Occasional pencil marks to margins highlighting passages of the text. Faint foxing to bottom edge; an excellent copy. First edition in pamphlet form. This paper was originally published in the Arts Journal on 31 March of the same year, alongside a summary of the discussion which followed Faithfull's reading. The paper was reprinted by Faithfull's Victoria Press with updated figures based on the census which occurred in April of that year. Faithfull (1835–1895) was a founding member of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, and opened the Victoria Press in 1860 with the aim of providing employment for women, specifically in the role of compositors. This pamphlet addresses the issue of female employment, specifically with regards to the larger number of women in the population than men. This disparity was a major concern due to the fact that these women, termed "superfluous women", would not be able to marry, and therefore would require employment to support themselves. This was one of the leading issues which prompted the founding of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women in 1859. In this paper however Faithfull notes that, "a Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, however admirable, cannot really do what is wanted; a national effort, in the fullest sense of the word, will alone enable us to cope". Faithfull's discussion of industrial employment focusses on the idea that women were more than "mere machines". She argues that viewing them as "mere machines" prevented women from taking on more senior roles, thereby denying young women the guidance and protection of senior women in the workplace, creating poorer working conditions, an issue which was pertinent in working women's strikes later in the century. Faithfull and the Langham Place group were active in opposing restrictive employment laws, particularly the Factory Act of 1874, but wary that too many restrictions could have adverse effects on the wages and self-dependence of women workers. Although some recent historians have argued that Faithfull's rhetoric was more moral than her business practice, her output, and the output of the Victoria Press as a whole, nevertheless remains a key part of the discussion surrounding women's labour at this time, and a basis for understanding the labour debates which occurred later in the century. This copy is together with Emily Faithfull's clipped signature. Faithfull was a prolific letter writer, having extensive correspondence with various key figures at the time, including Barbara Bodichon, Richard Cobden, Bram Stoker, and Christina Rossetti. The majority of her correspondence however was destroyed by Faithfull after her involvement in the divorce case of Helen and Henry Codrington. Uncommon, with no copies traced in the UK; just two copies were traced on OCLC at the Library of Congress and the University of Illinois.

        Coup d'œil sur les incendies de Constantinople.

      Constantinople: de Castro, 1871 - Octavo (196 x 133 mm), lithographic title + 29 pp. Original pink paper wrappers, printed in black. Mild denting to wrappers and text, wrappers slightly faded, a few tiny spots to spot, minuscule manuscript correction (probably the author's) to p. 17. A very good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy of this extremely rare pamphlet written in response to the 1870 Pera fire (the "Harik-i kabir"), inscribed by the author "A Mr. le Profr. Marzolo, hommage" on the front wrapper. This must be Francesco Marzolo (1818–1880), who taught medicine at the University of Padua, rather than his more famous brother, Paolo, who also taught languages, including Arabic and Turkish, although Zennaro may have been taught by him too. The fire began on Feridiye Sokagi shortly after midday on 5 June and "took only six hours to destroy two thirds of the quarter, killing thousands and destroying countless buildings" (Boyar & Fleet, A Social History of Ottoman Istanbul, p. 78). In response the government proposed an extensive remodelling of the local area, though the plan was only partially implemented. Zennaro, an Italian physician evidently long-resident in the city, estimates that approximately 8,500 houses were destroyed (more recent accounts have suggested 3,000), with some 2,500 dead, and accuses certain parties of having a vested interest in maintaining inadequate fire safety, including merchants and architects. He also surveys the use of building materials, the layout of the city's streets, water provision, and emergency procedures, and recommends the safer storage of oil and gas, the use of stone instead of wood, the widening of streets, a reformed fire service, and a regulated professional body of municipal architects. A highly important document in the social history of the Ottoman capital, otherwise untraced in libraries and commerce. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        BROADSIDE - SIEGE OF PARIS 1870-1871: SPECIMEN AUTHENTIQUE DES INFÂMES SPÉCULATIONS AUXQUELLES A DONNÉ LIEU LE SIÈGE DE PARIS 1870-1871

      Paris: Édouard Blot [March 6, ]. 1871 - Zincography (restored tears and tiny pieces of missin paper in folds, otherwise in a good condition) 50 x 32 cm (19.7 x 12.6 inches). A very rare first edition of a Republican anti-Monarchist propaganda bill, lists the prices of food, which included dogs, rats and cats, during the famine in occupied Paris in the years 1870 and 1871. - This is a very rare first edition of a bill, made directly after a famine in occupied Paris, which lasted between September 19, 1870 to January 28, 1871. The upper text blames the Government of National Defense (Gouvernement de la Défense nationale) for failing to provide enough food resources at the beginning of the siege and for protecting the interests of speculating of food merchants, who hid the food until the prices have risen to the following prices: 1 piece of garlic 0fr 50., 1 can of sardines 12fr 50, 1 cat .15fr, 1 carrot .2fr 25, ½ kg of chocolate 4fr, 1 truffled turkey 200fr, 1 chicory. 1fr 25, 1 rabbit. 60fr, 1 egg. 2fr 75, 1 pigeon . 14fr, 1 hen. 70fr, 1 chicken. 50fr, 1 rat.2fr 25, ½ kg dog meat.3fr 50, ½ kg mutton . 12fr, ½ kg donkey meat.12fr etc.A daily salary of a National Guard soldier was 1fr 50. The bill is signed with »Un Cordon Bleu« and initials L. G. Le Cordon Bleu or The Blue Ribbon, origins from the a 16th century order of the Knights of the Holy Spirit (Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit), which bore crosses on blue ribbons. Known for their lavish parties the expression the blue ribbon became synonimous with exellence and good cooking. Although the order was abolished after the French Revolution, the name remained in the popular culture. On this bill the name adds a sartactic note to the absurd situation during the Siege of Paris between 1870-1871. The printer, signed below was Édouard Blot. Blot was a Parisian printer, specialized in Arabic and Hebrew printing, often calling himself "imprimerie polyglotte" in imprints. Blot also printed broadsides and books in French. Most of his imprints were issued in smaller numbers and are today rare. Blot’s address is recorded on different locations,such as Rue Bleue 1, Rue St. Louis 46, and Rue Turenne 68 in Paris. The bill was only sold in a wine shop by Mr. Pigeol on the corner of Rue Montmartre and Rue du Croissant.Historical Background - In the winter of 1870-1871 Paris was occupied by Prussian army during the Franco-Prussian War(19 July 1870 – 10 May 1871). Between September 19, 1870 and January 28, 1871, during a severe winter, the city was isolated from the rest of France of 4 months, 1 week and 2 days. Due to severe shortage of food, Parisians were forced to slaughter whatever animals at hand, including dogs, cats, rats, and even elephants from the zoo, which appeared on the Christmas menus of expensive Parisian restaurants. By the time of the liberation on January 28, the Parisians were ready to overthrow the contemporary Monarchist government. Only days after the liberation the first anti-government pamphlets and bills, such as this one, were being distributed around Paris by the Republicans, one of them obviously being a wine merchant Mr. Pigeol on the corner of Rue Montmartre and Rue du Croissant. On March 28, 1871, Parisian workers and members of the National Guard rebelled and established the Paris Commune, with a radical and socialist government, which lasted fort wo months, until May 28, 1871. Different Variations of the Bill -- This is the rare first known state of the bill. Through contemporary literature and records of institutional copies, we could trace three different versions of this bill, all catalogued by the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris: 1- our copy printed by Blot on thinner paper, with a simple bordure, 2 – a more elaborate version of the bill, also printed by Blot, with identical text, but with Parisian arms and with elaborate bordure, 3 – a bill with same text, printed in Bordeaux .

        Middlemarch: a study of provincial life

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871–2. 4 volumes, octavo. Original bright blue sand-grain cloth, front cover with three-line outer border and decorative three-sided frame in black, rustic lettering in gold; spines lettered in gold, decorative band in gold at top and tail of spine between black rules, rear cover with three-line border blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers. Expert restoration to joints. Spines gently rolled, lightly toned, slight wear to extremities, minor soiling and abrasions to boards, top edge dust toned; a very good set. First edition in book form of George Eliot's sixth and greatest novel. The book proved problematic in some ways, being slow in composition and growing too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, it should be serialized in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes. Sadleir notes that Middlemarch is difficult to find in fine state, as many of the four-volume book issues in cloth went to libraries, Middlemarch being particularly popular (Sadleir, p. 378).
