    Descrizione: John Murray, London, 1859. First edition of "certainly the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman), one of 1250 copies. Octavo, bound in original cloth, half-title, one folding lithographed diagram, without advertisements. In fine condition with a touch of shelfwear. Housed in a custom clamshell box. An exceptional example of this landmark work, one of the nicest extant. 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).

    Descrizione: London, John Churchill, 1844. 8vo. Uncut and with the original yellow blank wrappers in a later red full cloth with gilt title-label to spine. The front wrapper and the title-page have small marginal re-enforcements and front wrapper a small closed tear towards hinge. With the book-plate of HF Norman to inside of front board. A nice and clean copy with only very light occasional brownspotting. VI, 390 pp. The very rare first edition of the milestone work that launched the modern public debate on evolutionary origins and historical geology. This sensational work constitutes the first work in English to contain a full-length exposition of evolutionary biology. It is the most sensational book on the subject to appear before Darwin's &quot"Origin of Species&quot being the forerunner of the &quotOrigin&quot, &quotVestiges&quot not only prepared the public for Darwin's eveolutionary thoughts, it paved the way for the theory of evolution by natural selection in general. Apart from anticipating &quotOrigin&quot by 15 years, the &quotVestiges&quot also contains one of the very earliest references to computing within the context of biology.This sensational work with its unorthodox themes that contradicted contemporary theology, created an uproar on both sides of the Atlantic and became an instant best-seller. It &quotwas one of the greatest scientific best-sellers of the Victorian age, going through at least twelve large editions in England, numerous American editions, and several foreign-language editions.&quot (Origins of Cyberspace). &quotVestiges&quot was the direct cause of a shift in popular opinion which - according also to Charles Darwin himself - prepared the public mind for the scientific theories of evolution by natural selection.&quotThe &quotVestiges&quot played a significant role in nineteenth-century biology. By presenting an evolutionary view of nature, it received the first wave of reaction and thus eased the way for Darwin's &quotOn the Origin of Species&quot fifteen years later.&quot (DSB III:192). Due to its controversial nature, the book was published anonymously, and for decades there was speculation about its authorship. Up until three years after the author's death when the true authorship was revealed, only seven people were told who the author was. Darwin was one of the few to have guessed the identity of the author, before the appearance of the 12th edition of the work (1884), in which Chambers's brother owned up to Robert being the true author. At one time it was rumoured to have been written by Prince Albert (who read it aloud to Queen Victoria). Alexander Bain, Richard Owen, and Charles Darwin were also favoured guesses, as was Charles Babbage. In fact, the work was not only responsible for bringing forth the idea of evolution by natural selection and presenting that groundbreaking theory to the public 15 years before Darwin did so, it also contains one of the very earliest references to computing within the context of biology, and by comparing evolutionary change occurring over long periods of time with the workings of Babbage's Difference Engine, the &quotVestiges&quot - with its immense success and huge audience - was responsible for spreading Babbage's ideas and making them known - and understandable - to the public. &quotIt is likely that most Victorian readers of Babbage's &quotTreatise&quot (other than the relative few who had seen his Difference Engine in operation) had no understanding of what Babbage was writing about here, since virtually no one in Babbage's time was accustomed to thinking in terms of a programmed series of mathematical operations. However, Babbage's ideas about natural laws resembling &quotprograms&quot received a great deal of attention when Robert Chambers, a Scottish publisher and author, issued his &quotVestiges of the Natural History of Creation&quot in 1844. Because Chambers's work was one of the greatest scientific best-sellers of the Victorian age., Babbage's ideas certainly received a much wider circulation through the &quotVestiges&quot than through the two editions of the &quotNinth Bridgewater Treatise.&quot (Origins of Cyberspace, p. 147). There is no doubt as to the wide range of readers that &quotVestiges&quot attracted - also in the United States, where it sold even more copies than in Great Britain and went through ab. twenty editions. Anyone with the slightest interest in scientific topics at the time read the book, and with many it found great resonance. Abraham Lincoln and Queen Victoria read it, philosophers read it - like Arthur Schopenhauer and John Stuart Mill -, poets read it - like Alfred Tennyson and Elizabeth Barrett Browning - , statesmen read it - like William Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli -, scientists read it - like Thomas Henry Huxley and Adam Sedgwick - and Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin read it.Charles Darwin read an advertisement about &quotVestiges&quot in either the &quotTimes&quot or &quotAthenaeum&quot. We know that he made a note to read it and copied the name of the publisher - and the price - in his notebook. Apparently he never got around to buying it, but read it in the British Museum library. We also know that both Bates and Wallace read the &quotVestiges&quot at the time of its appearance, and &quot[t]he young men's letters reveal that both were greatly stimulated by Chambers's &quotVestiges of the Natural History of Creation&quot&quot (Loren Eiseley, &quotDarwin and the Mysterious Mr. X&quot, p. 17). Charles Darwin immediately saw it for what it was and called it &quotthat strange, unphilosophical, but capitally-written book,&quot and noted that a few people had suspected him of being the author. He was very much aware of the fact the book was paving the way for the great work he himself was contemplating and which was to be published some fifteen years later, and he later remarked that &quotVestiges&quot was important in preparing many people to accept his own theory of evolution.

    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 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 &quot"Origin of Species&quot, 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.&quotIn 1864, S.A. Rachinsky, professor of plant physiology at St. Petersburg University, produced the first Russian translation of the &quotOrigin&quot. 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.&quot (Glick, p. 232). Rachinsky began translating the &quotOrigin&quot 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 &quotOrigin&quot into Russian were responsible for the great success and rapid, widespread knowledge of Darwinian theory of evolution in Russia. &quotDarwin was concerned that the &quotOrigin of Species&quot reach naturalists across the world, but translations of that complicated work raised problems for Darwin. If he found it difficult to make the reader &quotunderstand what is meant&quot in England and America, at least in those two countries he and the reader were discussing the &quotOrigin of Species&quot 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 &quotsignificance&quot of Darwinism. The first Russian translation of the &quotOrigin of Species&quot (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.&quot (Rogers, p. 485). In the year of publication of the translation, 1864, Pisarev wrote a long article in &quotThe Russian Word&quot, 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. &quotThe first mention of Darwin in Tolstoy's literary &quotNachlass&quot is found in one of the drafts to &quotWar and Peace&quot. There Darwin is listed, apparently quite favorably, among leading thinkers &quotworking toward new truth&quot [.] Thus by the late 1860's the name of Darwin as a leading scientist was already familiar to Tolstoy and duly respected.&quot (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 &quotAnna Karenina&quot, that Tolstoy made the famous statement (that all Tolstoy scholars and lovers know by heart): &quotI am proud of the architecture - the arches are joined in such a way that you cannot discover where the keystone is&quot. Like Strakhov, however, Dostoevsky, acknowledging the significance of the &quotOrigin&quot, saw the dangers of the theory. In the same year as the publication of Rachinsky's translation, he lets the narrator in &quotNotes from Underground&quot (1864) launch his attack on Darwinism , beginning: &quotAs 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.&quotIn &quotCrime and Punishment&quot (two years later, 1866) the Darwinian overtones inherent in Raskolnikov's theory of the extraordinary man are unmistakable. He describes the mechanism of &quotnatural selection,&quot where, according to the laws of nature, by the crossing of races and types, a &quotgenius&quot 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.

  • Sull'Origine delle Specie per Elezione Naturale ovvero: DARWIN, CARLO (CHARLES).

    Descrizione: Modena, Nicola Zanichelli e. Soci, 1864. 8vo. In contemporary half calf with four raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Reinforced in inner margins and plate with waterstains to lower margin. An unusually fine and well preserved copy, internally as well as externally. XV, 403 pp + 1 plate. Rare first edition of the first Italian translation of Darwin's seminal &quot"Origin of Species&quot, quite unusually, authorized by Darwin himself. The work was very well received and - compared to France and Spain - Darwinism was quickly adopted by Italian biologist and zoologist and meet only little catholic opposition. &quotThe impact of Darwinism on Italian naturalists was powerful the logic and rigorous treatment of the problem of the origin of species as Darwin had presented it, forced zoologists and anthropologists to reconsider those passages of Lamarckisms that they had agreed to with excessive enthusiasm&quot. (Capanna, Darwinism and the Italian academies). The reception of Darwin's work in France (1862) and Spain (1877) were characterized by a strong chatolic opposition, which also had a strong suppressing effect on the spread of his ideas to academic institutions.Despite of Italy being a catholic stronghold the reception of Darwinism was very favourable and meet very limited criticism from the church:&quotIn contrast to the power Catholicism was able to exert against Darwinism in Spain, it was practically impotent in Italy. Neither could the Italian Catholic intellectual establishment draw upon a repertory of anti-Darwinism arguments from the Italian scientific establishment, as was done in France. As in France under the Third Republic and as was the case sporadically in Spain, the advent of Darwinism in Italy provided a source of ideology for the anticlerical movement. Although Darwinism enjoyed a number of close connections with the English source, the peculiarities of the Italian situation set Darwinism in Italy apart from other situations. Italy was in the forefront in recognizing Darwin, electing him to various academies and societies and awarding him the famous Bressa Prize in 1875. In Italy the translation of the Origin &quot1864&quot was given an impeccable scientific presentation by Giocanni Canestrini and Leonardo Salimbeni, which avoided the type of situation that arose from the presentation of Darwinism in France by Clà mence Royer as a new scientific basis for a secularistic Weltanschauung. As a general explanation, of course, it is reasonable to accept Cermenati's arguments that the favorable receptivity of the scientific community and the general indifference to ecclesiastical objections to Darwinism are the chief factors explaining the quick spread of Darwinism in Italy&quot. (Glick, The Comparative Reception of Darwinism).Emma Darwin, Darwin's wife, wrote publisher John Murry on the 17th of December: &quotMr Darwin desires me to say that as you have never hesitated to authorize a foreign translation he has taken upon himself to authorise a translation into Italian without consulting you.&quot When Darwin was informed that his work was being translated into Italian he wrote to his close friend J. D. Hooker: &quotThere is an Italian Edit. of Origin preparing!!! This makes fifth foreign Edit, ie in five foreign countries. Owen will not be right in telling Longmans that Book wd be utterly forgotten in ten years. Hurrah!&quot.Freeman no. 706. Codice articolo 55760

    Descrizione: Kiadja a Természettudományi Társulat Könyvkiadó Vállalata, Budapest, 1873. First Hungarian edition. First Hungarian edition. In publisher's green cloth, bound into two volumes, gilt-stamped spine titles, panels with blindstamped device. 2 v. XIV, [2], 303, [1] p. and 1 folding plate; VII, [1], 361, [3] p., and a plate with Darwins portrait, protected with tissue paper. First Hungarian edition of Darwin's opus magnum, the On the Origin of Species (1859), the foundation of evolutionary biology. A fajok eredete was Darwin's first book to be translated into Hungarian. The translator László Dapsy (1843-1890) was a gymnasium teacher in Budapest, who studied at the New College in The University of Edinburgh. While in Scotland Dapsy was introduced to Darwin's scientific theories, and back in Hungary, he became a pioneer advocate of Darwinism. As a member of the Hungarian Society of Natural Sciences Dapsy urged the publication of Darwin's works in Hungarian and translated the present book, On the Origin of Species. While working on the text, he was in correspondence with Darwin who, besides authorized the publication, provided the photograph after which the portrait, illustrating this edition, has been made. The translation was revised by another progressive Hungarian scientist and early Darwinist Tivadar Margó (1816-1896), who was the author of the first Hungarian zoological book based on Darwin's theories, and the first biography of Darwin written in Hungarian. Margó held the memorial lecture after Darwin's death at the Hungarian Academy of Science of which Darwin was an honorary fellow since as early as 1872, wherein he recollected the memories about his personal encounter with Darwin in 1875. Provenance: Ownership stamp of Dr. János Garán (1847?-1911), country doctor in Székelyhíd (today: S?cueni, Romania). Scarce, WorldCat locates seven complete copies, worldwide, of which only two are held in the US (Huntington; NLM). Contemporary ownership stamps on half-title, and title page in each volume (Dr. Garán). Occasional light foxing throughout in both volumes. Overall in fine condition In publisher's green cloth, bound into two volumes, gilt-stamped spine titles, panels with blindstamped device. Codice articolo 1858

    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 &quot"Origin of Species&quot. 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.&quotBefore 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.&quot (Glick, The Reception of Charles Darwin in Europe). &quotIt 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.&quot (Ibid.).Translation was begun by Szymon Dickstein who in the processe of the translation committed suicide. It was completed by JÃ zef Nusbaum who also translated 'The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication' in 1888.Freeman 740. Codice articolo 55316

  • Ã ber die Entstehung der Arten im Thier-und: DARWIN, CHARLES.

    Descrizione: Stuttgart, E. Schweizerbart'sche Verlagshandlung und Druckerei, 1860. 8vo. Bound in contemporary half calf with gilt lettering and ornamentation to spine. Small stamp and previous owner signature to title page. Leather on lower part of spine with a tear and part detached. Hinges weak but book-block firmly attached. VIII (including half, 520, (6) pp + 1 plate. The very scarce first edition of the highly important first German translation, which appeared just months after the original.This translation came to play a tremendous role in the spreading of Darwinism in Germany and Northern Europe in general. It was through this translation that Darwinian thought reached most of the German scientists and thinkers of the period, and it was this translation that challenged German scholars to think in new ways about morphology, systematics, paleontology, and other biological disciplines. It was from this translation that Ernst Haeckel, Darwin's most famous nineteenth-century proponent and popularizer in Germany, got his Darwinism and was able to further spread the new ideas in his own country. The German translation of Darwin's &quot"The Origin of Species&quot appeared in 1860, just months after the original, thanks to Heinrich Georg Bronn, a distinguished German paleontologist whose work in some ways paralleled Darwin's. Bronn's version of the book (with his own notes and commentary appended) did much to determine how Darwin's theory was understood and applied by German biologists, for the translation process involved more than the mere substitution of German words for English.&quotIts [Origin of Species] greatest impact on German biological practice lay in the introduction of historical modes of explanation for the observable phenomena of living nature. The historical approach to nature was rejected, not only by the opponents of evolution, but also by the idealist evolutionist. Whether they favored a teleological or a reductionist biology, the idealists could not see the point of a theory that emphasized the irregularities and exceptions in the organic world. In the timeless real of idealist thinking, unchanging laws worked out an inevitable destiny. But Darwin taught his followers to look at living beings one by one. Thus prompted, they recognized, as if for the first time, the surprising fact of anomaly and the wisdom of an open-ended theory.&quot (Glick, The Comparative Reception of Darwinism). &quotDarwin was not happy about the first German translation. It was done from the second English edition by H.G. Bronn, who had, at Darwin's suggestion, added an appendix of the difficulties which occurred to him but he had also excised bits of which he did not approve. This edition also contains the historical sketch in its shorter and earlier form.&quot (Freeman).Freeman No 672 - Freeman does not mention the lithographed plate. Codice articolo 50927

    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. 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

    Descrizione: C. Marpon et E. Flammarion / éditeurs, Paris, 1882. Wrappers. Condizione: Good +. Condizione sovraccoperta: Custom Case. 8vo (7 1/4" x ~5"), green wrappers, French text ncorporates authorized corrections by the Author [Charles Darwin] & additional notes by the translator, Mlle. Clémence-Auguste Royer; L-page Préface [containing the Advertissement Aux Lecteurs Préface De La Quatrième Edition, Préface De La Première Édition, & Notice Historique] + 650-pages. Exceedingly Rare & fragile French popular wrappered edition of Charles Darwin's, Origin of Species (1859). 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.

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

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.

    Descrizione: John Murray, London, 1869. Sixth edition, one of 2,000 copies of "certainly the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman). Octavo, bound in original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom full morocco clamshell box. A nice presentation. 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).
