Descrizione libro: John Murray, London, 1859. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. ix, [i], 502 pp. With 1 folding plate. Half-morocco over marbled boards of the period. An excellent copy inscribed by Leonard Darwin, Charles Darwin's son, with related material bound in at the end, including a 2-page letter signed by Darwin, and an unrecorded offprint of a paper on Darwin's work. Preserved in a half-morocco solander box (see provenance). First edition, first issue, of Darwin’s historic and pioneering work on the theory of evolution; certainly the most important biological book ever written. Bound in: 1. Half-title inscribed by Leonard Darwin: This is the first edition of the Origin -- written by my father -- containing a passage on p. 184 which he always regretted to have omitted in later editions -- 10 April 1927. Refers to the black bear and the possibility of their development by natural selection into aquatic animals, reprinted in the first four American editions (Osborn, Book Collector, Vol. 9, No. 1, pp. 77-78 (1960); Freeman, p. 76).2. ALS. Charles Darwin to Lady Drysdale. [ca. 1859]. 2 pp. (possibly lacking 1 page). The letter is addressed to the mother-in-law of Dr. Lane, whose Moor Park spas Darwin and his wife frequented after 1857. The letter was probably written while Darwin was at a hydropathic spa in Ilkley, Yorkshire from October to December, 1859. At that time Lane was moving to Sudbrooke Park, Surrey, which Darwin and his wife visited the following year.3. ALS. George Augustus Rowell to Sir James Emerson Tennent (of Tempo Manor). 3 Alfred Street, Oxford, December 12, 1860. 3 pages.4. ROWELL, George Augustus. "Mr. Darwin’s Theory." Reprinted from the Oxford Chronicle of Dec. 8, 1860. 8 pp.First edition of this unrecorded offprint on Darwin’s theory of how instincts are neither endowed nor learned, but a result of "accidental natural selection." Rowell states that Darwin fails to sufficiently support his case, and "actually his examples of the cuckoo and the bee sting demonstrate the wisdom of the Creator." Interestingly enough, the author unwittingly offers further evidence in support of Darwin’s theory.Provenance: This copy of the Origin was presented to Sir James Emerson Tennent (1804-1869), best known for his works on the natural history of Ceylon, by George Augustus Rowell (1804-1892), underkeeper of the Ashmolean and of the Oxford University Museum. The Rowell letter notes that he became despondent about his scientific work and burned all his manuscripts, papers and apparatus. He eventually changed his mind, and in 1862 published a second edition of his pamphlet on pain. A slip bound in at the end by Sir Charles Langham, Baronet of Tempo Manor notes that Leonard Darwin had signed the book while visiting him, and that in 1946, the book was appraised at £ 20.

Descrizione libro: D. Appleton & Company, New York, 1860. Condizione libro: Near Fine. First American edition. First printing with two quotations on the verso of the half-title. Publisher's original brown ribbed cloth, stamped in blind on the panels and gilt on the spine. And here's something you won't see very often, cloth complete, beautiful and completely untouched. Both hinges are strong and untouched. Bookseller's blindstamp on the front, brown-coated end paper and a previous owner's stamp on the top of the title page, which has been partially bleached, but remains legible. Internal contents are complete, intact and appear unread, although there is light to moderate foxing throughout, as almost always. With most copies on the market heavily restored or repaired, this copy is the finest we have seen by some margin.Darwin's book expounded a theory of evolution markedly superior to anything that had come before. It was aimed at the educated population generally, not just the academic community, and it sparked intense debate and controversy. Darwin attempted to explain the vast array of life on earth from a scientific perspective, showing how selected attributes could form new species given the right circumstances. "In accomplishing this 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. Near Fine.

Descrizione libro: 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. Extremely 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 186. Codice libro della libreria 49697

Descrizione libro: 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 libro della libreria 28009

Descrizione libro: John Murray, London, 1860. Decorative Cloth. Condizione libro: Very Good. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. A tightly bound, repaired copy. Some wear to corners. Front and rear covers are very good. Label of Mudie's Subscription Library to front cover. NB - there are no internal library indicators.) Original binding has been rebacked using vintage cloth and the original spine has been preserved. A little loss, especially to the lower left corner, but expertly repaired. Binding tight. Original endpapers have new hinges, using matching vintage paper. Foxing to early pages. Paper repair to half-title - at some stage an attempt to remove a previous ink name resulted in a small hole which has been covered using archival acid-free tissue. Scattered foxing and soiling throughout - nothing too serious or unsightly. Original folding diagram is in good condition, with some foxing spots. Closed marginal tears to p. 24 and p.203 have been professionally repaired. A good copy which was part of the subscription business that helped to ensure Darwin's phenomenal success. Charles Edward Mudie (1818 – 1890), an English publisher and founder of Mudie's Lending Library and Mudie’s Subscription Library, was the son of a second-hand bookseller and newsagent. In 1842, he began to lend books to students at the University of London, charging subscribers one guinea per year (see photo) for the right to borrow one volume of a book at a time. This proved so successful that in 1852 he moved his "Select Library" to larger premises at 509, 510 & 511 New Oxford Street, at its junction with Museum Street and Hart Street, just a few yards south of the British Museum (as advertised on the label on this copy). Mudie was crucial to the success of scientific works such as Darwin's. In November 1859, he bought up 500 copies of the first edition of the Origin of Species (quite remarkable considering that only 1250 copies were printed - this represents 40% of the entire print run). As well as having a notable affect on Darwin's confidence (see quote below) this gave his landmark work, from the outset, a much wider audience than he would otherwise have enjoyed. Darwin himself acknowledged this and indeed those 500 copies could have been read, conceivably, by thousands of different subscribers. Mudie's Subscription Library was a key player in the dissemination of subsequent editions of the Origin and all of Darwin's other books (Mudie admired Darwin so much that he invited him to dine, but Darwin declined). Though his fiction list had a famously prudish reputation, Mudie revelled in the controversy that evolutionary theory created and stocked a wide range of evolutionary works by other authors - such as Lyell, Huxley and Lubbock - during the remainder of the 19th Century. "It is a wonderful thing the whole edition selling off at once & Mudie taking 500 copies. Your father says he shall never think small beer of himself again & that candidly he does think it very well written". Emma Darwin, in a letter to William Erasmus Darwin. (late Nov. 1859) We are selling an entire first and early edition collection of Darwin and other Victorian naturalist. in many cases we have several copies of the same Darwin titles in similar condtion, including presentation copies.

Descrizione libro: D. Appleton & Co, New York, 1860. Octavo. Half-title. 1 folding lithographic diagram. Early owner's newspaper clipping mounted on verso of front endpaper. Original green grained cloth, covers blocked in blind, spine in gilt, brown endpapers (expert repair at head and tail of spine). Housed in a full green morocco box. Provenance: William Hincks (signature) The first American edition of one of the most influential books ever published. Freeman calls Darwin's magnum opus "the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman), whilst Dibner writes that it is "the most important single work in science" (Heralds of Science). "What the dropping of the first atomic bomb was to the twentieth century, the publication of Darwin's On the Origin of Species was to the nineteenth century. Battle lines were drawn on both religious and scientific grounds" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; and as, consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, it follows that any being, if it vary however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex and sometimes varying conditions of life, will have a better chance of surviving, and thus be naturally selected. From the strong principle of inheritance, any selected variety will tend to propagate its new and modified form." (Introduction p.12). The first edition of On The Origin of Species was published in London on 24 November 1859. In total 1250 copies were printed, but after deducting presentation and review copies, and five for Stationers' Hall copyright, around 1,170 copies were available for sale. The second edition of 3,000 copies was quickly brought out on 7 January 1860, the present first American edition followed and a third English edition was published in 1861. The book went through a further four editions during Darwin's lifetime and has remained in print ever since. The present example is the first issue of the first American edition, with two blurbs on verso of the half-title. This copy with provenance to William Hincks (1794-1871), an Irish-born Unitarian minister who came to Canada in 1853 to serve as the first professor of natural history at University College, Toronto. He was strongly opposed to Darwin's theory of natural selection, and taught the quinarian system of taxonomy. Codice libro della libreria 33161

Descrizione libro: 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).

An Essay on the Ancient and Modern: Nisbet, Alexander

Descrizione libro: Printed by William Adams, Junior, for Mr. James Mack Euen, Edinburgh, 1718. Hardcover. First Edition. 4to. [viii], [6], 224, [16] pp. + 7 engraved plates (three engraved by Rot Wood, two by Ard Burden, and one by Rot Mylne; the seventh, unsigned, is probably Mylne's). Bound in early or mid-19th century red morocco in the 18th-century style, elaborately gilt, seven raised bands on spine (slightly faded, extremities very lightly rubbed), inner gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Preserved in a black cloth folding case. A lovely retrospective binding in the Scottish 18th-century style. While the binding is surely later than the publication of the text, it is not so easily datable: the watermark on the final endleaf is type of Heawood 3693 (a pot, two handles, monogram PR). The binding may be Scottish work: it comes from the library of John Whitefoord (sic) Mackenzie (1794-1884), a Scottish solicitor and Ballantyne member who received regular visits from Dibden as we learn in the latter's "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in the Northern Counties of England and Scotland" (1838) pp. 618-622. The author, Alexander Nisbet (1657-1725) was the unfortunate victim of an egregious literary fraud that tarnished his good name after he had been dead for 17 years, and it took 150 for the fraud to be discovered. But as a herald "he remains unrivalled. Many of the methods in fashion in his day in differencing and quartering arms, and which he so heartily denounced, have been laid aside. The reforms he urged in the methods of blazon have been mostly adopted. His classification of ordinaries and sub-ordinaries has been almost universally acquiesced in." (Ross and Grant). Seventeen years after his death in 1725, Alexander Nisbet's name was affixed to a large folio entitled "System of Heraldry, Speculative and Practical, with the True Art of Blazon" (Edinburgh, 1742), which was advertised as being Vol. II of the present work. It turns out that the 1742 "System of Heraldry" was a complete sham, largely based on a forged manuscript that Nisbet had nothing to do with. In fact, "Poor Nisbet" was the victim of a series of forgeries that remained undetected for a sesquicentennial, during which time his reputation as a herald was posthumously destroyed. "The deed was perpetrated in the interest of the Dean branch of the Nisbet family, whose influence throughout [the "System of Heraldry"], in which they more than once claim to be the principal family of the name, is quite apparent, and how the act might affect [Nisbet's] reputation probably never occurred to them. But the result was disastrous. The single-minded patriot was transformed into the needy trafficker in ancestral honours, and since it was impossible to overlook his work, he is quoted sometimes with pity, and as frequently with contempt." (Ross and Grant). The list of the subscribers gives 191 names. The text extends is divided into seventeen chapters, as follows: I. Of the Origin of Arms. II. Of the Definition of Arms, and the Division of them into their several Species. III. Of the Ancient Practice of Arms before and about the Time when they began to be Composed and Marshalled. IV. Of Composed Arms and Collateral ones. V. Of Marriage. VI. Of Offices, Ecclesiastical and Civil. VII. Of Arms of Alliances, with the Method of Marshalling them and others Quarterly.VIII. Of Adoption and Substitution. IX. Of Patronage. X. Of Gratitude and Affection. XI. Of Religion. XII. Of Arms of general Concession. XIII. Of Arms of special Concession. XIV. Of Arms of Dominion. XV. Of Feudal Arms, or Arms of Dignities. XVI. Of Arms of Pretension. XVII. Of other Methods of marshalling Arms. There are ten pages of "An Alphabetical Index Explaining the Terms of Herauldry in this Essay," and six pages of "An Alphabetical Table of the Names and Titles of the Families whose Blazons are in this Essay of Herauldry." ESTC N3358L. Literature: Andrew Ross and Francis Grant, "Alexander Nisbet's Heraldic Plates" (Edinburgh, 1892). Very good antiquarian condition. Codice libro della libreria 1990

Descrizione libro: 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 libro della libreria 6218
