Descrizione: John Murray, 1860. 8vo., Fifth Thousand, [Second Edition], with folding diagram, neat contemporary signature in pencil at head of title, with second pencilled signature lower down, front free endpaper a little chafed at fore-edge, three or four small fox-spots each on half-title, title and diagram; original green cloth, boards elaborately blocked in blind, gilt back, , brown endpapers, uncut, expertly recased with original endpapers preserved, a remarkably bright, fresh copy in minimally restored publisher's binding. With 32pp publisher's catalogue (dated January, 1860) bound in at end, and the binder's ticket of Edmonds & Remnants on rear paste-down. The second edition is not so named on title but simply labelled 'Fifth Thousand'; Freeman records that 3000 copies were printed following the 1250 copies of the first edition. Although Darwin considered this edition a rapid revision to meet demand, his changes are much more than mere correction. The most famous alteration is the dilution of the whale bear passage on p.184, which Darwin later regretted although he never restored it. With the signed and ruled advertisements which Freeman considers the first issue. Freeman 113 variant a; Freeman F376. Codice articolo 28009

Descrizione: S.-Peterburg, 1864. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful recent pastiche-binding of red half calf with blue marbled paper over boards. Five raised bands and elegant gilding to spine. End-papers renewed. A bit of damp staining and a bit of brownspotting. A very nice and fine copy. XIV, 399, (1) pp. + 4 pp. of advertisements + 1 plate. Rare first edition of the first Russian translation of Darwin's "Origin of Species", a main reason for the widespread effect of Darwinism in Russia, where the theory met less resistance in the 1860'ies than it did in Western Europe. In Russia Darwinism had a profound influence not only upon the different sciences, but also on philosophy, economic and political thought, and the great literature of the period. For instance, both Tolstoy and Dostoevsky referenced Darwin in their most important works, as did numerous other thinkers of the period."In 1864, S.A. Rachinsky, professor of plant physiology at St. Petersburg University, produced the first Russian translation of the "Origin". Although not a masterpiece of translation art, the book sold out so quickly that in 1865 it went through a second printing. By this time Darwin's ideas were discussed not only by scientists but also by such popular writers as Dmitri Pisarev and M. A. Antinovich." (Glick, p. 232). Rachinsky began translating the "Origin" in 1862 and wrote an important article on the theories presented in it, while working on the translation. This article and the translation of the "Origin" into Russian were responsible for the great success and rapid, widespread knowledge of Darwinian theory of evolution in Russia. "Darwin was concerned that the "Origin of Species" reach naturalists across the world, but translations of that complicated work raised problems for Darwin. If he found it difficult to make the reader "understand what is meant" in England and America, at least in those two countries he and the reader were discussing the "Origin of Species" in the same language. Foreign language editions raised not only the thorny question of translating Darwinian terms, but also the problem of translators, who often thought it proper to annotate their editions to explain the "significance" of Darwinism. The first Russian translation of the "Origin of Species" (1864) appeared, however, without any comment whatever by the translator, Sergei A. Rachinsky, professor of botany at the University of Moscow. Rachinsky had begun the translation in 1862 and published an article on Darwinism while continuing work on the translation in 1863." (Rogers, p. 485). In the year of publication of the translation, 1864, Pisarev wrote a long article in "The Russian Word", which purports to be a review of this translation; the critic complains about the absence of notes and commentaries by the translator. Pisarev furthermore points to several errors in the translation and to numerous infelicities of expression. Acknowledging the importance of the work, however, and of the spreading of Darwinism in Russia, he goes on in his own essay to provide a much more popular account of Darwin's theory and to impress upon his readers its revolutionary significance.Nikolai Strakhov also reviewed the translation immediately upon publication, acknowledging the effect it would have. Strakhov, however, recognized potential dangers inherent in the theory and expressed them in his review of Rachinsky's translation. He praised the work for its thoroughness and rejoiced in the evidence that man constituted the highest stage of organic development; but then he went on to argue that by moving into questions of philosophy and theology, the Darwinists were exceeding the limits of scientific evidence. Like Pisarev, Tolstoy enthusiastically embraced Darwinism. "The first mention of Darwin in Tolstoy's literary "Nachlass" is found in one of the drafts to "War and Peace". There Darwin is listed, apparently quite favorably, among leading thinkers "working toward new truth" [.] Thus by the late 1860's the na. Codice articolo 49697

Descrizione: John Murray, London, 1861. Cloth. Condizione: Very Good. First Edition, Third Printing. THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES London, John Murray, 1861 3rd edition of only 2000 copies with a significant alteration of text as found in the first two English editions published in 1859 and 1860. Description: "The Origin of Species" is the most important biological book ever published. The publication rang in a new era of thinking about the nature of man and where he came from and its total impact it had on man's concept of himself were greater than those caused by the works of the great astronomers, mathematicians, and the great physicists of more recent times. An epic work. Octavo. Original green cloth, covers blocked in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt with brown endpapers. Binders tag on the left bottom corner of rear end-paper"Bound by Edmonds & Remnants, London." This binding differs only in a few small details, and is the same as in the 1859 first English edition and the contents are the same. In this third edition, the content was was extensively altered. A nice copy with a minor small nick on the side of the binding edge near the word "Species." Nice original endpapers, with the hinges neatly and most non-obtrusively a bit cracked. The two upper book corners show a bit of wear. Interior pages do not have foxing and are nice. The half title page has a faint stamp at the top right "AM" but in no way detracts. A nice very good copy that shelves well Folding chart on page 122. One page advertisement leaf at the end. Third edition, first issued in March1861 of only 2,000 copies. The text was extensively altered, and a table is given of differences between it and the second edition, and this that occurs in each subsequent edition that Murray issued. This third of "Origin" is also notable for the addition of an historical sketch in which Darwin mentions his predecessors in the general theory of evolution, which had already appeared in shorter form in the first German edition and in the fourth American printing, both in 1860. Asa Gray wrote to Darwin on Feb. 20 that he had delivered to Appleton an 'Historical paper.' There is also a postscript on page xii. This concerns a review of the earlier editions by Asa Gray which had appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in 1860, and as a pamphlet paid for by Darwin, in 1861. This edition has one leaf of advertisements which is part of the book as mentioned. Size: 8vo. Codice articolo 011057

Descrizione: John Murray [through 1861], London, 1859. Early Reprint. Third Edition (seventh thousand) of the "most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" (Grolier 100 Science) and "certainly the most important biological book ever written." (Freeman) 8vo: xix,[1],538pp (including unrecorded variant title page), with single leaf of advertisements and folding lithographed diagram by William West, charting Darwin's views of possible sequences of evolution. Original green sand-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt, covers with decorative panels blocked in blind, brown clay-coated end papers, edges untrimmed. Variant "b" binding (without full point after "MURRAY" on the spine). An excellent example of this rare issue, recased in the original cloth binding (not rebacked), with spine ends skillfully restored and crease to spine carefully repaired, now barely visible. Minor wear to cloth, corners bumped, original endpapers rehinged with matching vintage paper. Manuscript ex-libris on title page of "John Hitchman M.D." (1815-1893), English physician and superintendent of Mickleover Asylum (later Pastures Hospital) near Derby, where this copy was purchased (bookseller's ticket on front paste-down of J. A. Rowbottom). On page [x] a previous owner (perhaps Hitchman) has written notes on Darwin's death and estate, erroneously naming the author "Charles Erasmus Darwin" (Darwin's middle name was Robert). Minor foxing spots and occasional marks, very slight age toning, no ink marks or notes in text pages but the stray pencil mark and margin note. Regarding the title page, all recorded copies have the year printed beginning with a distorted number "1," while our copy has the number fully intact, raising the possibly that the title page was reset to correct this minor problem. It also suggests there may exist other alterations in the text that close comparison could reveal. Regardless, this issue is rare. Freeman 381. For comments on the Origin's inestimable significance, see: PMM 344b. Dibner 199. Garrison-Morton 220. Horblit 23b. Norman 593. Grolier 100 Science 23b. Grolier 100 Medicine 70b. The third edition appeared in April,1861, in a run of just 2,000 copies (the second edition print run was 5,000), only 17 months after Darwin had received his advance copy of the first edition. The binding nearly matches that of the two previous editions, differing only in minor details. But the text was extensively altered, so much so that a table of differences between it and the second edition (a table that was updated for each subsequent edition) was added. Darwin also added the full historical sketch, written to satisfy complaints that he had not sufficiently credited his predecessors in presenting the general theory of evolution. (The sketch had already appeared in shorter form in the first German edition and in the fourth American printing (both 1860), in which it is called a preface. There also appears for the first time a postscript, on page xii. "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken." (PMM).

Darwin, On the Origin of Species. A: Darwin., Charles

Descrizione: 1859. Disbound. Condizione: Very Good. First Edition. Includes key articles by William Wilberforce, Richard Owen, Henry Holland, H. Fawcett, St George Mivart, Richard Simpson, John Morris, and others. Four articles from 1860 reviewing the Origin of Species (incl. Wilberforce, Morris & Owen), a further five from the 1860s, and five from 1871 to 1873.

In very clean condition, one or two with a very light library stamp, and no notable foxing, nor browning, nor brittleness.

Item Type: Magazine. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Darwin Related; Collections. Inventory No: 168806. 21 years of serving customers on ABE. A seller you can rely on. Codice articolo 168806

Descrizione: Erevan, Hayastani Petakan Hratarakch'ut'yun, 1963. Royal8vo. In publisher's full green cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front board. Light wear to extremities, otherwise a fine and clean copy. 591, (1) pp. + 2 plates. First printing of the exceedingly rare second Armenian translation of Darwin's landmark work. The first translation (translated by S. Sargsyan) was published in 1936 and both translations are of the upmost scarcity. Due to the relatively low number of people speaking Armenian (approximately 3 million in Armenia and 7 million outside) books in Armenian were printed in comparatively low numbers. This is one of the very few translations of "Origin of Species" of which Freeman has not listed the collation. This suggests that he never actually saw the copy but only read of it. Freeman 631.R.B.

Descrizione: Londres, John Murray, 1863, 1863. In-8 de XII, 520 pp., catalogue de Murray de 32 pp. en fin de volume, percaline verte ornée de l'éditeur. Édition originale. Charles Lyell, ami proche de Darwin sur lequel il avait eu une grande influence avec ses Principles of Geology (voir la notice du "PMM" 344), fut l'un des premiers scientifiques reconnus à lui apporter son appui à la parution de L'Origine des espèces. C'est d?ailleurs lui qui avait publié, en 1858, les premiers papiers de Darwin et de Wallace dans les Proceedings of the Linnean Society un an avant la publication du célèbre livre de Darwin. Reprenant cette théorie nouvelle et exploitant des découvertes archéologiques récentes - notamment l'homme de Néandertal (1856) - Lyell publia en 1863, ses propres théories sous le titre de The Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man. Il discute longuement les théories darwiniennes, notamment en n?acceptant pas complètement le principe de la sélection naturelle comme le moteur de l'évolution. Le livre fut traduit en français par Chape. Bel exemplaire. Codice articolo 6218

"William Bateson read the newly discovered paper [by Mendel] and recognized immediately its relevance to the unsolved problem expounded in his Materials for the Study of Variation. variation is the cause of the evolution of species; but what causes variation, and how does it happen? Bateson was convinced that species evolve as the result of the accumulation of innumerable small changes. His view was that variations occur suddenly and discontinuously. Mendel's paper gave him the clue that he was seeking. [Bateson] became the founder of the modern study of heredity and variation for which he adopted the term 'genetics'" (PMM).
