Paris, Bossange père, P. Mongie ainé, Londres M. Bossange et Cie., 1823. Two works in 3 volumes. lxxx, 592 pp.; viii, 648 pp.; (2), 16, (1329)-1448, (1) pp. 8vo. Modern half calf, marbled boards, raised bands and gilt lettering and numbering (first two volumes), original blind covers, kept in a half vellum case with vellum overlapping edges, kept in a box (the 'Sommaire'). First work: Del Bo 5; Kress C.864; Goldsmiths 23694; Einaudi 1960 (both works). Second work: Del Bo 6; Kress C.1060; Goldsmiths 23997. First editions of the main work of Fourier, together with the very rare supplement. The first volume is signed by Fourier on verso of the half title. This is Fourier's most important work, containing 'the essence of Fourier's doctrine' (David Owen Evans, Social Romanticism in France 1830-1848, p. 129.) - The first and the last leaf of the Supplement are pasted to the inside of the cover, supplement loosening but still holding, main work occasionally cut short at upper margin, not affecting text. The main thesis of the work is the discovery of the 'harmonie'. The work is an elaborate exposition of how this 'harmonie' can be established and how life and society should be constructed to ensure succes. Fourier tried to get as much attention as possible for his ideas and to that end he published the 'Sommaire du traité.' in 1823, the often lacking supplement. The work however remained however virtually unnoticed. Although Fourier is often seen as a dreamer and fantast, he preceded in many of his ideas Marx. The theory of poverty and exploitation and its relation to the means of production can already be found with him, and the Marxist conception of the all-round man is an idea on which Fourier elaborately worked and which is the most important result of his 'harmonie'. 'He (Fourier) was emphatically a serious social thinker who contributed much of permanent value, not only to Socialist and Co-operative ideas, but also to the solution of the entire problem of work and of the incentives and human relations connected with it (see: Kolakowsky: History of Marxism; Quack, de Socialisten, and G.D.H. Cole, A history of socialist thought.)It is little realized even today that many Fourierist communities were actually established, chiefly in the United States where the way had been prepared by Robert Owen. Fourierism was introduced to the United States by Albert Brisbane, whose Social Destiny of Man appeared in 1840. Brisbane had studied in France under Fourier in 1834. In 1842 the New York Tribune, then edited by Horace Greeley, placed at his disposal a column in which for over a year he popularized Fourier's doctrines. (.) The direct effect of Brisbane's writings was the making of a large number of experiments in community-living all over the United States during the eighteen-forties. The most famous of these were the North American Phalanx of New Jersey, which had 112 members and flourished for 12 years; the Wisconsin Phalanx, consisting of 32 families settled on 1,800 acres of land; and Brook Farm in the Commonwealth of Massachussetts (.); others associated with the enterprise were William Henry Channing, Henry Ward Beecher, George Ripley, Charles Dana, and Daniel Hawthorne. Another Fourierist commune was established in Texas by Fourier's disciple Victor Considerant in 1849, which lasted till the Civil War (See David Owen Evans, op.cit. pp. 48-49).The Sommaire . does not contain the leaves 8B-8E containing the text 'Banques rurales', and the leaves 1398B-1398E containing the text 'Antienne du chapitre III', both of which are later insertions, but does contain the preliminary leaf 'Introductions pour le vendeur et l'acheteur' and the final leaf 'Appendice aux conclusions'.
