Item Description: London: Printed by John Nichols, at Cicero's Head, Red Lion Passage, Fleet-Street: And sold by Eliz. Newbery, the Corner of St. Paul's Church Yard, Ludgate-Street, 1792., 1792. Book Condition: Very good. - Octavo, two volumes bound in full contemporary brown calf with gilt ruled raised bands on the spines. A calligraphic title label mounted on the spine of the first volume is darkened and cracked. The leather is rubbed and scuffed and there is evidence of worming to the covers of the second volume with a couple of ancient holes to the covers and slight worming to the lower section of the front joint of that volume. These 2 volumes constitute a complete run of The Gentleman's Magazine from January through December 1792, plus the supplement for the year and the indexes for the 2 volumes. The first volume contains pages 1 through 584, and the second volume contains pages 585 through 1,160 plus an Index to volume 2 on pages 1,161 through 1,221 and a 14-page unnumbered index to volume 1, followed by a few "Remarks" signed "S.E." and 2 poems by the Welsh poet David Thomas (Dafydd Ddu Eryri). Additionally bound into the first volume, after page 392, is the 32-page "A Particular Account of the Insurrection of the Negroes of St. Domingo". The set is illustrated with 39 plates consisting of 3 plates illustrating each month and 3 plates illustrating the supplement. A title device and textual illustrations, including monthly title vignettes, further decorate these volumes. There is minor worming to the front margin of pages 393 to 488, just touching a very few letters, and with a tiny hole to the front margin of subsequent pages within that volume. There is minor worming to the front edge of that volume's rear pastedown. Annotations in ink, penned at the top of the title page to "A Particular Account of the Insurrection." instructs the binder that "This Acc't is to be bound up with the Magazine". There are otherwise only minor flaws and the set is in very good attractive condition. Bound in, following page 392 of the first volume of the magazine, is the RARE account of Haiti's 1791 Maroon slave uprising entitled: "A Particular Account of the Insurrection of the Negroes of St. Domingo, Begun in August 1791. Translated from the French. / The Fourth Edition: With Notes and an Appendix extracted from authentic original Papers. / Speech made to the National Assembly, the third of November 1791, by the Deputies from the General Assembly of the French Part of St. Domingo." Led by Francois-Dominique Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803), nicknamed "The Black Napoleon", the Haitian Revolution resulted in the creation of the nation of Haiti and the subsequent abolition of slavery in France in 1794.Inspired by the French Revolution and the rights of man, slaves and "free people of color" pushed for freedom and civil rights. In 1791, the Haitian Revolution began with the revolt of the slaves of Saint- Domingo who far outnumbered the white slave-owning population. The French government sent troops and three commissioners to re-establish control in 1792. Allying with the "gens de couleurs" and slaves, the commissioners abolished slavery in the colony and, within six months the National Convention endorsed abolition of slavery in France and all of its colonies. However, the revolution did not end with the abolition of slavery. A former slave, Toussaint Louverture, drove the Spanish out of Santa Domingo as well as the British who threatened the colony. Meanwhile the United States played both sides off against each other supplying both the French and the rebels. The struggle turned into a Civil War of sorts. The "free people of color" under by Andre Rigaud and the black Haitians of Louverture led to the War of the Knives in 1799 and 1800. Following Louverture's establishment of a separatist constitution, Napoleon initially sent an expedition of 20,000 troops under General Leclerc but, despite a few victories, the French troops succumbed to and died of yellow fever. It took a much larger commitment by Napoleon which resulted in the death of 50,000 French troops before Louverture was captured, tried and imprisoned. Louverture's death in prison did not signal the.

Alan Hewitt, who has acted in several plays by Robert Sherwood, appeals to his widow Madeline Sherwood for information about a 1954 incident described in an upcoming biography of the Lunts. It is alleged that the Lunts walked out of a production of Sherwood's play Ondine after a blowup with the director Mel Ferrer. Hewitt and other actors involved in the production whom he has consulted have never heard of such an incident and he wonders if Sherwood was still keeping a journal at the time which might settle the question. The second letter, written after a phone conversation with and a letter from Madeline Sherwood, thanks her for her response and tells her that he believes the biographer has decided to omit any mention of the incident from his book. Hewitt goes on to reminisce about his experiences in other Sherwood plays.Alan Hewitt [1915-1986] was an American film, television and stage actor. Though he never became a major star, he had a long career and played smaller parts in such well-known television shows as I Dream of Jeannie, Dr. Kildare and Perry Mason.

Edited by Donald Davidson.From the library of Paul Gaunt, signed by him and dated 1928 on the front endpaper with his bookplate on the front pastedown and later that of literary critic Oscar Cargill, signed by him on the front pastedown.In the words of Allen Tate "a Fugitive was quite simply a Poet: the Wanderer, or even the Wander Jew, the Outcast, the man who carries the secret wisdom around the world." Tate was one of the group of poets and academics who gathered at and in the vicinity of Nashville's Vanderbilt University. The poets and writers focused on carefully crafted poems with precise rhyme and metre which viewed their work as self- contained aesthetic wholes. In addition to Allen Tate, John Crowe Ransom, Robert Penn Warren, Merrill Moore, Donald Davidson and Laura Riding were among those which formed the group identifying themselves as Fugitives. Supporting the traditions of the agrarian South in contrast to urban industrialization, several of the poets were later responsible for the formation of the literary collective identified as the Agrarians.
