Descrizione: New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1860, 1860. First American Edition, First Issue, of "The Most Influential Scientific Work of the Nineteenth Century" "Darwin's Magnum Opus" DARWIN, Charles. On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Faces in the Struggle for Life. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1860. First American edition, first issue (with two quotations on the verso of the half-title). One of only 1,500 copies printed. Octavo (7 3/4 x 5 inches; 197 x 127 mm.). 432 pp. Folding lithographed diagram (speciation tree) facing p, 108. Some light foxing throughout as usual, pp. 291/2 with folded corner (original binders flaw), small unobtrusive and light stain in upper margin of a few leaves toward end. Original dark green bead-grain cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spine ruled in gilt and blind and lettered in gilt. Original dark brown coated endpapers. Gilt on spine somewhat dull, minor expert and almost invisible strengthening to head of spine, tiny piece missing from tail of spine. Rear free endpaper with some clean tears at top margin. Still an incredible copy with the early ink signature of Benjamin Lincoln on first blank leaf. An exceptional copy of the extremely scarce first issue of the first American edition. Housed in a quarter dark green morocco over green cloth clamshell case, spine with five raised bands decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt in compartments. One of the most influential scientific works of the nineteenth century, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) one of the most controversial. In it "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" (Printing and the Mind of Man). "The most important biological book ever written" (Freeman). "The most important single work in science" (Dibner, Heralds of Science). "What the dropping of the 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). 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. Although published the same year as the second English edition, the text of the first American edition (with the two stereo reprints of the same year) is identical to the first English edition (Freeman 373) with the whale-bear story surviving intact.

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: London John Murray 1861, 1861. A very early issuance and only the third edition (seventh thousand of the title, with important additions and corrections] of Darwin's monumental work. This edition is printed in the same format as the first edition, and includes "An Historical Sketch of the Recent Progress of Opinion on the Origin of Speciesz" in which Darwin acknowledges his fellow scientists as regards the theory of evolution, as well as a table of corrections to the first and second editions. Two-thousand copies only were printed and issued in April 1861. Folding lithographed diagram by W. West. 8vo, publisher's original green cloth, gilt decorated on the spine and blocked in blind on the covers, salmon glazed paper endpapers with the Edmonds & Remnants ticket on the rear paste-down. Housed in a morocco backed folding box. xix, 538, [2] ads. A very fresh and clean copy, fine and very bright both internally and externally with only very light evidence of age or use. The hinges strong and pleasing and without refurbishment, the tip of the spine panel tidied slightly, expertly and without obtrusiveness. A very pleasing copy. A VERY PLEASING COPY OF THIS GREAT BOOK. THE THIRD AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT ISSUANCE OF CHARLES DARWIN'S MASTERWORK. The book is rare in cloth in this condition. Darwin's Revolutionary Masterwork, in which he 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) Together with Copernicus' DE REVOLUTIONIBUS and Newton's PRINCIPIA, it is deemed one of the three greatest and most important scientific works ever penned. "The most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" and "The most important biological work ever written" (Horblit, Freeman). Darwin's elaboration of the theory of natural selection laid the groundwork for the controversy over the evolution of man, and with only slight modification by such scientists as Stephen Jay Gould, Darwin's ideas remain the umbra under which most current biological research is conducted. Darwin had intended the book to be an abstract of his 'big book' on transmutation, of which only the first part (Variation Under Domestication, 1868) was published in his lifetime.

On the origin of species by means: Darwin, C.

Descrizione: London, John Murray, 1861. 8vo (19.9 x 12.5 cm). xix, 538, [ii] pp., double-folded diagram. Publisher's green, pebble-grained and blind stamped cloth. Gilt title and triangular ornaments on the spine. Brown endpapers. A wonderfully preserved, brilliantly fresh copy of the first edition with Darwin's historical sketch of his theory in full form. Generally regarded as the most important edition after the first, which in itself is one of the most important works in the history of humankind. In this edition, Darwin considerably altered and corrected the text. Fore edge uncut. Provenance: Very small armorial bookplate, Tria juncta in uno (motto of the Order of the Bath), on the front pastedown. Scattered light spotting; several light marginalia in an old hand in pencil, including the observation that "battle of life" (p. 84) originates from Seneca's "vivere est militare", and other scholarly observations. Edmonds & Remnants book label neatly mounted in the lower inner corner of the rear pastedown. In Freeman this is variant b (no point after Murray) of two varieties, neither of which has precedence. Very insignificant wear to spine ends, a few, insignificant spots, tiny cloth imperfection to back panel, overall a really fine copy. Freeman, 381. Codice articolo 72314

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). N.B.: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Codice articolo BB1385

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.

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.

Descrizione: London: John Murray, 1872, 1872. in-8vo, XXI (+ 1 white) + 458 p., with the folding diagram to p. 90, a name stamped on lower inside first cover, Original green ribbed-grain cloth, gilt titles to spine, frames and central vignette blocked in blind to covers, brown coated endpapers. In all a fine copy. The sixth edition, which is usually regarded as the last, appeared in February 1872. Murray's accounts show that 3,000 copies were printed, but this total presumably included both those with eleventh thousand on the title page and those with twelfth, the latter being notably less common. It is again extensively revised and contains a new chapter, VII. This was inserted to confute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St George Mivart. The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type, the volume shorter again and giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d. it was. The title changes to The origin of species, and a glossary, compiled by W. S. Dallas, appears. It is in this edition that the word 'evolution' occurs for the first time. It had been used in the first edition of ?The descent of Man? in the previous year, but not before in this work. 'Evolved' had been the last word of the text in all previous editions, but 'evolution' had been omitted, perhaps to avoid confusion with the use of the word by Herbert Spencer or with its more particular embryological meaning. The word had however been used in its transformist sense by Lyell as early as 1832 (Principles of geology, Vol. II, p. 11). In this edition it occurs twice on page 201 and three times on page 424.

Descrizione: ont> John Murray : London. Hardcover. Condizione: Very Good. First edition. The sixth edition of Charles Darwin's popular scientific writing, considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. A respectable and early edition, which is held in its original cloth. 'On the Origin of Species' is regarded by many to be the most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century, and to be one of the most important biological works ever written. In it Darwin revolutionised the typical outlook of natural order that had been held for centuries and introduced a new evolutionary theory. This work is noted for introducing the scientific theory of populations evolving over generations through natural selection. To this writing, Darwin includes evidence he gathered during his 1830s 'Beagle' expedition and then his subsequent findings, correspondence and experimentation. Darwin wrote this work to be accessible to everyone, not just specialists, which lead to its widespread popularity. This sixth edition was the first edition of 'The Origin' to use the word 'evolution'. This edition had extensive revisions and was the first edition to have 'On' dropped from the title. A new chapter was added for this edition, chapter seven, 'Miscellaneous Objections', to address Mivart's arguments. To the preface, it is stated that numerous small corrections have been made in the last and present editions on various subjects, according as the evidence has become somewhat stronger or weaker'. This edition has corrections to 1872 and was issued thirteen years after the first edition. With the half-title and quotations regarding natural science from Whewell, Butler and Bacon to the verso. Lacking the rear endpapers. Darwin noted in his autobiography that he first conceived this theory in 1839, and there was a delay in its publication until 1859. With the folding plate to page 90, as called for. A smart early, and important edition of this work. Condition: In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, sound, with slight rubbing to the joints and extremities. Small loss to the head and tail of spine. Bumping to the extremities. Bookbinder's label to the rear pastedown, W Bone and Son. Front endpaper has been adhered to the front pastedown, with the rear endpapers detached but present. Minor chips to the extremities. Internally, generally firmly bound though strained in places. Pages are bright with just the odd spots. Overall Condition: Good. Codice articolo 061754
