About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for De la Démocratie en Amérique by TOCQUEVILLE, Alexis de (1805-1859).

Description:

(7 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches). Half-titles. 1 folding hand-coloured lithographic map. Expertly bound to style in green calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the spines divided into five compartments by gilt filets, black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth compartments The first editions of both parts of Tocqueville's famous classic Democracy in America. From the time of its first publication, Democracy in America enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. The first part was published in an edition of less than 500 copies in January 1835. The book was an instant and sustained success and numerous editions, many with revisions, followed quickly, so that the second part, first published in April 1840, was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part. The origins of the book lie in the observations Alexis de Tocqueville made during a nine month tour of the United States starting in the spring of 1831. He was accompanied by his friend and fellow student, Gustave de Beaumont, and their original goal was to study the penitentiary system of the United States. After visiting prisons in the East, they undertook a tour of the South as far as New Orleans, ascended the Mississippi, visited the Great Lakes and Canada, and returned via New York. After writing their report on prisons, Tocqueville worked on the first part of Democracy in America in 1833-1834, publishing it in Paris in 1835 to great acclaim. The 1840 second part was equally as successful and the book remained in print throughout the 19th century: there were probably more than fifty editions in English and French published before 1900, besides numerous translations. Considering the many editions of the first part prior to the publication of the second part, along with the limited print run of the first edition of the first part, sets containing the first editions of both parts, as here, are particularly rare and desirable.

Book Description 1986. PARIS, Gallimard - 1986 - Petit in-12 - 471 pages (Collection Folio Histoire - 13). Bon état. Tout dans l'œuvre de Tocqueville se rattache plus ou moins directement à un problème unique: dans les sociétés occidentales entraînées par un processus providentiel de démocratisation, la liberté de chaque homme pourra-t-elle subsister? Si l'idée centrale est une, les périls dénoncés sont multiples, et depuis 1930 les commentateurs ont mis l'accent sur tel aspect ou tel autre. D'abord, au temps des fascismes occidentaux, ils ont valorisé le refus du totalitarisme, sacrifice de la liberté à un égalitarisme brutal. Depuis la chute de ces régimes, ils ont paraphrasé la vision de Tocqueville des périls insidieux d'une société de consommation qui invite chaque citoyen à se retirer dans le confort d'une vie privée dépourvue de toute solidarité; et ils ont mis en valeur les pages où Tocqueville montre le danger corrélatif de la substitution aux décisions librement discutées, d'un bureaucratisme tout-puissant et stérile. Tocqueville, observant l'enfance des démocraties modernes, y avait diagnostiqué les germes de maux qui se sont développés avec leur croissance. Français Livres. Seller Inventory # 31992
