by Maclure, William

Condition: See description


New Harmony, 1837. First Edition. 556pp. Contemp. half morocco. Howes M163. Byrd and Peckham 705. Not in Shaw. This series of essays on political, economic and Utopian studies was published in a variety of places and gathered here for the first time. This volume started in 1831, was finally issued in 1837. Each was a self-contained work in its own right. In his usual whole hearted manner, he purchased an extensive tract of land n the vicinity of New Harmony, Indiana and forwarded his library, instruments and other personal effects that might be useful in carrying out once more, in new territory, his plan for an agricultural school. He succeeded in persuading a number of other scientific men to accompany his to New Harmony. When he set out, he took with him down the Ohio the "boat-load knowledge" which included LeSueur, Gerard Troost and Thomas Say. Even after the failure of Owen's venture, Maclure persisted in an attempt to organize societies for adult education among the working classes. He founded the New Harmony Working Men's Institute in 1838 and by his will , directed his executors to pay $500 to any club of laborers which should establish a library of 100 volumes.
