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: John Murray, London, 1860. Rare second edition, second issue, in Freeman's binding variant "a" of Darwin's magnum opus. Freeman 376; Norman 594. Octavo, original publisher's green cloth. In excellent condition with the spine gilt bright, contemporary owner's signature to the title, marginalia on pages 72 and 132. A nice example. Darwin "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 344). "Without question a watershed work in the history of modern life sciences, Darwin's Origin elaborated a proposition that species slowly evolve from common ancestors through the mechanism of natural selection. As he himself expected, Darwin's theory became, and continues to be in some circles, the object of intense controversy" (American Philosophical Society). "The five years [of Darwin's voyage on the Beagle] were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological science. Darwin sailed with no formal training. He returned a hard-headed man of science. The experiences of his five years in the Beagle, how he dealt with them, and what they led to, built up into a process of epoch-making importance in the history of thought" (PMM). Darwin wrote in his diary that all 1250 copies of the first edition, published on November 24, were sold on the first day; however, more accurately, nearly all of the edition had been sold to the trade immediately, with the exception of personal copies set aside for Darwin and review copies.

Descrizione: S.-Peterburg, 1864. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful recent pastiche-binding of brown half calf with marbled papers over boards and elegant gilding to spine. End-papers renewed. A few dampstains and a bit of brownspotting throughout. A nice copy. XIV, 399, (1) pp. + 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 name of Darwin as a leading scientist was already familiar to Tolstoy and duly respected." (McLean, p. 160). A fact which is often overlooked is that Tolstoy actually knew Rachinsky quite well. Interestingly, it was in a letter to Rachinsky, in reply to a question about the structure of "Anna Karenina", that Tolstoy made the famous statement (that all Tolstoy scholars and lovers know by heart): "I am proud of the architecture - the arches are joined in such a way that you cannot discover where the keystone is". Like Strakhov, however, Dostoevsky, acknowledging the significance of the "Origin", saw the dangers of the theory. In the same year as the publication of Rachinsky's translation, he lets the narrator in "Notes from Underground" (1864) launch his attack on Darwinism , beginning: "As soon as they prove you, for instance, that you are descended from a monkey, then it's no use scowling, you just have to accept it."In "Crime and Punishment" (two years later, 1866) the Darwinian overtones inherent in Raskolnikov's theory of the extraordinary man are unmistakable. He describes the mechanism of "natural selection," where, according to the laws of nature, by the crossing of races and types, a "genius" would eventually emerge. In general, Darwinian themes and Darwin's name occur in many contexts in a large number of Dostoevsky's works.Freeman: 748.

Descrizione: Warszawa, Przegladu Tygodniowego, 1884. Large8vo. In contemporary half calf. Spine with wear and corners bumped and hindges weak. A few minor repairs to half-title and Previous owner's stamp to title-page (Dr. O . Schreiber). Internally fine. 437, (1), XVI [Including the plate] pp. First edition of the first full Polish translation of Darwin's "Origin of Species". An attempt to publish a Polish translation was made as early as 1873. This was, however, never completed and only half of the work was published (Freeman 739), thus making the present copy the very first full Polish translation. As seen in several other countries (especially in Japan) the majority of Polish intellectuals adopted a Social Darwinism perspective at a very early stage, rather than appreciating the English naturalist's caution in applying his ideas to human society."Before the first translations of Darwin's appeared [.], many Polish intellectuals, such as positivist writer Eliza Orzeszkowa (1841-1910) complained about the increasing confusion over the essence of the English naturalist's ideas, which had all too often been mixed up with all sorts of ideological debates. However, when Darwin's books were actually available in Polish translations, the novelty of his concepts gradually wore off, making room for more serious attempts to come to terms with evolutionary theory." (Glick, The Reception of Charles Darwin in Europe). "It appears that the struggle for or against Darwinism in partitioned Poland prefigured a pattern that is relevant for Polish thinking up to the present day: the conflict of striving for progress with the help of powerful allies abroad and of virulently rejecting all foreign advice for fear of losing one's cultural identity." (Ibid.).Translation was begun by Szymon Dickstein who in the processe of the translation committed suicide. It was completed by Józef Nusbaum who also translated 'The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication' in 1888.Freeman 740. Codice articolo 55316

Descrizione: D. Appleton and Co 1871, 1872, New York, 1871. 203 x 121 mm. (8 x 5"). All volumes with ads at the end. Two separately published works in three volumes. First American Edition of "Descent" (with first use of the word "evolution" by Darwin); Fifth Edition of "Origin." Publisher's brown buckram, covers with black-stamped frames, flat spines with gilt titling, "Origin" with a leaves uncut in a couple of places. Descent with 76 illustrations in the text; "Origin" with folding diagram. Front free endpaper of all three volumes with pencilled signature of L. G. Andrews. Freeman 941, 394. Tiny tear to head of one spine, one corner slightly bumped, extremities lightly rubbed, a little chafing to a couple of boards, one page with faint printing smudges, other trivial internal imperfections, but FINE COPIES, internally clean and fresh, in sound bindings with few signs of use. The first edition of "Descent of Man" is especially notable for Darwin's first use of the word now virtually synonymous with his name: "evolution" appears on p. 2 of volume I, noting the opposition of some older scholars of natural science to his theory of natural selection. Darwin considered "descent" a continuation of the other work here, his ground-breaking "Origin of Species," with special focus on man's descent from ape-like creatures. As DNB notes, "'Descent' of Man brought the full force of evolutionary proposals directly into the heart of ordinary Victorian life." Another area of controversy in "Descent" was Darwin's theory on sexual selection, which he used to explain physical characteristics more aesthetic than functional, such as the male peacock's splendid tail, the male hummingbird's iridescence, and the male human's beard--all features that might give the possessor advantage in the attraction of a mate. Widely considered the most important biological book ever written, "Origin" went through six revised editions following its first appearance in 1859, with our fifth edition marking Darwin's first use of Herbert Spencer's phrase "survival of the fittest" to describe natural selection. Our copy has never been read all the way through--a couple of leaves that remained uncut by the binder are still attached, and no one has attempted to open them. Copies of these editions appear on the market from time to time, but not often in the little-used condition seen here. First American Edition of "Descent" (with first use of the word "evolution" by Darwin); Fifth Edition of "Origin.". Codice articolo CBJ1801

This wrappered "populaire" and "quatrième édition" [fourth edition] of The Origin was based on the third French translation by Mlle. Royer. It was authorized by Darwin and incorporated the author's latest changes in his English imprints. Because French paper has always been problematic: tending to become brittle, chip, and disintegrate, this edition in wrappers is breathtakingly rare. The small paper label of "M. Riquier, percepteur honoraire / S440 . . . PONT-de-METZ" is pasted down inoffensively on lower portion of the half-title, below which there is his stamped name, "M. Riquirer." This stereotyped edition incorporates the latest Additions by the Author [Charles Darwin] and Notes by the learned translator, Mammoiselle Royer, a self-described "disciple de Lamar[c]k." Surprisingly, she refers in her Preface to this fourth edition to Darwin's death [in 1882] just as this edition was about to be published, and to twenty-three years having passed since the publication of his first edition in [1859}. This volume is thus a reissue of the Fourth French edition in wrappered format for popular consumption, which was to have appeared in 1882.coincidentally, the year in which her esteemed and communicative Charles Darwin had just died. This edition is not noted by R. B. Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin / An Annotated Bibliographical Handlist, Second Edition (1977). Freeman identifies the Fourth French edition of L'Origin as #658: "[ ] Paris, C. Marpon & E Flammarion. I [not our Roman numeral "L" {i.e., 50-pages} expanded Preface] + 650 pp." Though Freeman notes #669 a two-volume Flammarion edition with 675 pp. that appeared in 1918 that was also translated by Mlle. Royer, he has no mention of this rarity; nor does the Fifth edition have any date, but closely resembles #658, the Fourth edition. We can, therefore, date this popular "paperback" [reissue of the fourth edition] to 1882, though it bears no date on its title page. The learned translator also refers to "la Théorie d'évolution par Sélection Naturelle" as "Darwinism," and to other works she had written: "sur Lamarck, sa vie, ses travaux et ses doctrines {Revue de Philosophie positive, 1869-70), and her article Darwinism du Dictionnaire des sciences médicales." The front wrapper had two small holes in the middle of the title page which was also loose. These minor defects have been carefully restored and strengthened by Scott Kellar, our gifted bookbinder. (The front wrapper retains some discoloration and a rough fringe, while the paper backstrip has losses to its periphery.) Scott has also constructed a protective brown cloth-covered, sturdy clamshell case for this precious volume. Fourth Edition / "Quatrième Edition" [French] reissued with expanded Preface.

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.

With a contemporary Queen's Prize certificate from the Science and Art Department tipped in after half title. Judicious and sympathetic restoration to inner hinges. Minor creasing to spine ends, a touch of wear to very tips, a couple of small blue ink marks to covers, faint speckling to front cover, top edge lightly soiled, light foxing to endmatter; a very good, unusually bright copy. Folding diagram facing p. 93. Sixth edition, fourth issue, marked, like the third issue of 1872, as the "thirteenth thousand" on the title page. The sixth edition is the last lifetime edition. Darwin continually made revisions to his text; this sixth edition subsequently featured a new chapter, chapter VII, as well as a glossary by W. S. Dallas. "The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type. giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d, it was". It is also the first edition of The Origin of Species to feature the word "evolution"; the term was first used by Darwin in The Descent of Man, published in 1871. The edition was reprinted unchanged from stereos in 1872 and again, in the present issue, in 1873. The final issue is dated 1876; stereos of which were used for the many which followed from 1878 to 1929. Freeman 396. Codice articolo 127700

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

Descrizione: 1860. Disbound. Condizione: Very Good. First Edition. The Origin of Species aroused international interest and a widespread debate, with no sharp line between scientific issues and ideological, social and religious implications. Much of the initial reaction was hostile, in a large part because very few reviewers actually understood his theory, but Darwin had to be taken seriously as a prominent and respected name in science. Samuel Wilberforce wrote a review in Quarterly Review 1860 where he disagreed with Darwins 'argument'. The Origin of Species as a book of wide general interest became associated with ideas of social reform. Its proponents made full use of a surge in the publication of review journals, and it was given more popular attention than almost any other scientific work. The leading naturalist in Britain was the anatomist Richard Owen, an idealist who had shifted to the view in the 1850s that the history of life was the gradual unfolding of a divine plan. Owen's review of the Origin in the April 1860 Edinburgh Review bitterly attacked Huxley, Hooker and Darwin, but also signalled acceptance of a kind of evolution as a teleological plan in a continuous "ordained becoming", with new species appearing by natural birth. Others that rejected natural selection, but supported "creation by birth", included the Duke of Argyll who explained beauty in plumage by design. Since 1858, Huxley had emphasised anatomical similarities between apes and humans, contesting Owen's view that humans were a separate sub-class. Their disagreement over human origins came to the fore at the British Association for the Advancement of Science meeting featuring the legendary 1860 Oxford evolution debate. In two years of acrimonious public dispute that Charles Kingsley satirised as the "Great Hippocampus Question" and parodied in The Water-Babies as the "great hippopotamus test", Huxley showed that Owen was incorrect in asserting that ape brains lacked a structure present in human brains. Others, including Charles Lyell and Alfred Russel Wallace, thought that humans shared a common ancestor with apes, but higher mental faculties could not have evolved through a purely material process (Wikipedia). The articles in this collection are Darwin, The Origin of the Species. British Quarterly Review, 1860 ; Richard Owen. Darwin, On the Origin of Species. Edinburgh Review, 1860 ; John Morris. Darwin, On the Origin of Species. Dublin Review, 1860 ; Samuel Wilberforce. Darwin's Origin of Species. Quarterly Review, 1860 (with errata slip) ; Richard Simpson. Darwin, On the Origin of Species.

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.
