4 pp. Newspaper. Large Fo. A reprinting of two chapters from Charles Dickens's novel "Hard Times". Probably one part in the serial publication of Dickens's novel in this New York newspaper in the same year as the book publication. Likely this was a piracy, as was all too frequent in reprinting Dickens's works in America. In his first visit to America in 1842, Dickens raised the issue of the lack of respect in America for the idea of international copyright, for he rankled at the frequent piracies of his work in this country. In doing so he incurred the ire of the American Press. Some amends were made at the press dinner for Dickens on the second visit of the author to America in 1867Ð8. The New York Evening Post was a distinguished newspaper founded by Alexander Hamilton. It prospered under the editorship of William Cullen Bryant (1794Ð1878), a poet, lawyer and journalist, who supported the Abolitionists and introduced Lincoln in 1860 at the Cooper Union. Bryant must have been aware of Dickens feelings about piracy of his works, but there is no record of recompense to Dickens by this or the many other newspapers and most publishers who printed his work. America did not join the international copyright protection till the 1890's. "Hard Times", originally published in Britain in 1854, was a social novel in which Dickens held forth against Jeremy Bentham and Utilitarianism,; he argued for the role of 'feelings' in education, as opposed to the emphasis on 'facts'; and he showed his early awareness of problems and inequities for the working class in the Industrial Revolution.
