Zurich: Verlags, Magazin, 1891. First Edition. [11],370pp. Original gold stamped cloth. Translation: "The Anarchists: a picture of civilization at the close of the 19th century." This was the first book publication. It was the best known and most widely read of his world, and made him famous overnight. Mackays scholar Thomas Riley comments: "...through the eyes... we see the horrors of life among the London poor in 1870 and the useless attempts of London radicals to wipe out the evils of the world by means of an effective social movement... The Haymarket Affair was the aftermath of a bombing which took place at a labor demonstration on Tuesday, May 4, 1886 in Chicago. The bomb blast and ensuing gunfire killed seven police officers, four civilians, and created scores of wounded.

Wash.,: Union Office, 1855. First Edition. 15pp. dbd, old rubber stamp eradicated from title page. This printed letter was issued by Manypenny to reply to Thomas Hart Benton's attack on Manypenny through the National Intellingencer. It was the age old problem on how monies from the Indian Department were spent and the distribution of goods to the Indians. This case involved material goods for the California Indians. Edward F. Beale was the superintendent of Indian Affairs for that region and who had acquired his position through the efforts of Benton. Manypenny had questioned some of Beale's expenses. This upset Benton who went on the offensive. Colonel John Fremont and Gwinn Heap were also involved to some extent. There were many side issues such as Manypenny's trip to Westport, Missouri which was three times cheaper that the one Beale and Benton made. A very important privately printed letter which gives insight into the frontier and its politics. Not in NUC.
