The reprint histories here are fascinating. Three editions of the Lamennais, at a time when there was at least one other, competing translation of the same text advertised for sale in Boston. (See the Liberator, July 8, 1842, p. 107, for an advertisement of the "manuscript translation" by R. Douglas, Jr., "Portrait and Miniature Painter," who, besides translating French Christian socialist texts, sketched Prince Albert "from life.") The success of The Daughter of an Empress is a bit mind-boggling.

Greene is supposed to have written "hundreds" of poems and submitted numerous other translations to Boston-area papers, many of the submissions under the name "Boscawen." We know that he published a number of poem in the Token, where William B. Greene's "Song of Espousal" also appeared.
