Book Description: Cambridge: University Press, 2003., 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Frontispiece, xx, 172 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. New price: US$75.00. 'In observation of the bicentenary of Erasmus Darwin's death, Cambridge is publishing this collection of personal writings by his grandson Charles. This is the first unabridged publication of a book by Charles Darwin, and it contains a series of illuminating insights into his grandfather's life and work. With quotations from letters and candid comments by Charles Darwin about his books; and free of the conventions of scientific writing; this small volume of personal observations illuminates the life of a distinguished scientist as seen by his accomplished successor' (Cambridge University Press Web site). The original 1879 edition was published as a 'Preliminary Notice' (pp. 1-127, Freeman 1319) to W. S. Dallas's English translation of Ernst Krause's Erasmus Darwin (London: John Murray, 1879). 'Ernst Krause's short scientific biography of Darwin's grandfather had originally appeared in the German periodical Kosmos in February 1879. . . . This translation was published in November, and in it Krause altered the text to refer, indirectly, to Samuel Butler's Evolution Old and New which had appeared in May. The alterations are not specifically noticed in the book, and Butler took strong exception to them, an exception which resulted in a sordid and one-sided quarrel in which Darwin remained silent. Darwin's own biographical contribution, which was based on family papers, is longer than the original article, and, in recognition that it contains his work, the binding is standard green cloth. Festing Jones, in his Samuel Butler, a Memoir (Vol. I, p. 320, 1919) states that the translation was instigated by Charles Darwin and his brother Erasmus' (Freeman, pp. 159-60). [DF4].

Facsimile Reprint of Darwin's first publication. v, 31 pp. Original sewn printed wrappers. Near Fine. 'Towards the close of our voyage I received a letter whilst at Ascension, in which my sisters told me that Sedgwick had called on my father, and said that I should take a place among the leading scientific men. I could not at the time understand how he could have learnt anything of my proceedings, but I heard (I believe afterwards) that Henslow had read some of the letters which I wrote to him before the Philosophical Society of Cambridge (Read at the meeting held November 16, 1835, and printed in a pamphlet of 31 pages for distribution among the members of the Society.), and had printed them for private distribution' (The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, ed. Nora Barlow, 1958, p. 81). Bookseller Inventory # 15352
