Item Description: Ticknor and Company, Boston, 1888. 12mo, pp. [1-4] [i-iii] iv-vi [7] 8-470 [471-472] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], original decorated slate-gray cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and black. First edition. First printing with "J. J. Arakelyan" imprint on verso of title leaf. The most famous nineteenth-century American utopian novel. "Of nineteenth-century American books, only UNCLE TOM'S CABIN and possibly BEN HUR outsold LOOKING BACKWARD. The book's popularity inspired several reform journals (e.g., THE NATIONALIST and THE NEW NATION) and numerous book-length fictional responses, the most famous being William Morris's NEWS FROM NOWHERE (1890). Between 1888 and the early years of the twentieth century, at least 200 literary utopias appeared in the United States alone, including Bellamy's sequel to LOOKING BACKWARD, EQUALITY (1897). Literary, social, labor and reform leaders as different as William Dean Howells, Mark Twain, Upton Sinclair, Samuel Gompers, Eugene Debs, Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Elizabeth Cady Stanton voiced public support; and at least 165 Nationalist or Bellamy Clubs appeared in America and grew into the Nationalist Party that influenced the national Populist Party. Translation of LOOKING BACKWARD inspired reform movements around the world with especially strong impacts in England, Europe, Russia, Canada, Australia and New Zealand . During the twentieth century many Socialist, Progressive and New Deal politicians cited Bellamy as an important influence. It is not surprising that in 1935 the philosopher John Dewey, the historian Charles Beard and the editor of ATLANTIC MONTHLY, Edward Weeks, contended that of books published since 1885 on Marx's DAS KAPITAL had done more to shape the thought and action of the world." - Kenneth M.

Item Description: Ticknor & Company, Boston, 1888. First Edition. Without question the most influential 19th-century American utopia, and included among the Grolier Club's One Hundred Influential Books Printed Before 1900. Looking Backward spawned not only a host of literary imitators, accounting for the great profusion of utopian fantasies between 1890 and 1900, but also inspired a great many American social and political movements during the Progressive Era; "Bellamy Clubs" became a prominent feature of social life in all but the least progressive of American cities, and many of their members went on to influential careers in social reform and politics. Though almost continuously in print from the date of publication until the present day, the first printing has long been considered an uncommon and desirable book; the present copy among the better examples we have handled, and of special interest for the included portrait and autograph. GROLIER 100. SARGENT p.38. NEGLEY 80. LEWIS p.11ff. Octavo (19cm); original gray cloth; 470pp. Blanck's earliest printing, with imprint of printer J.J. Arakelyan on verso of title page; "wore" for "were" on p.210. Laid in are an original albumen photographic portrait of Bellamy and a card signed by the author, each with evidence of having been removed from an album - as found, but of unknown (and perhaps dubious) provenance. The book shows a bit of external soil, with dulling to spine gilt; endpapers foxed; text clean, and overall in an excellent state of preservation, easily Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 17556

Item Description: Ticknor and Company, Boston, 1889. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 5th or later Edition. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. A lovely early rebind (by Case, Lockwood & Brainard, Hartford), half leather over marbled paper-covered boards, with peach endpapers, of the stated "sixteenth edition" (almost certainly meaning "sixteenth printing," in modern parlance) of Bellamy's "utopian" novel, of a future America where no need is seen for money or wages, since the great collective simply distributes to every person what he or she needs, even replacing ridiculous "individual" umbrellas with a vast collective rain shield when it rains. (Whether the trees and flowers consider this "utopian" is not revealed.) An ever-popular collectivist fantasy (see the similarly cashless, wageless society of Gene Roddenberry's initial "Star Trek") though the author might have thought to consider the history of virtually every early American colony, including the Massachusetts Bay, where Gov. William Bradford reported the colonists went hungry for years because they refused to work in the fields, preferring instead to steal other people's crops before they were ripe. But then, in 1623, Gov. Bradford reported that "Instead of famine now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God." What had happened? Why, in 1623 Bradford simply replaced the earlier "utopian" system of collectivism, in which everyone was to take what they needed from the empty storerooms of "the common stock," and instead "gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit." Their "early form of socialism" was "why the Pilgrims were starving," explains historian Richard J. Marbury. But then Gov. Bradford "abolished socialism" in the colony, "replacing it with a free market, and that was the end of famines." Or, to let economist Thomas Sowell summarize (from his book "Marxism: Philosophy and Economics"): "The disjuncture between vision and experience was nowhere better illustrated than in the traumatic post-revolutionary experience of Lenin, as he applied the Marxist vision and watched a whole nation sink into economic chaos and starvation by the millions." Still a significant piece of early American science fiction. Previous owner Cora E. Andrus has dated this copy to top of title page "1889." (Copyright reads 1888.) Top board corners are peeking through the leather. 470 pp. followed by 8 pp. of ads, mostly for other Ticknor & Co. titles, but also including wonderful ads for a bristle-free felt tooth polisher and for the Boston Pants Co., of 111 Chauncy St. Here reduced from $617.
