Book Description: London, John Murray, 1859. 8vo, ix, 502; 32 (publisherÕs advertisements, dated June 1859) pp. with a folding diagram facing p. 117. A remarkably good copy in the original publisherÕs blindstamped green cloth, backstrip lettered and decorated in gilt, binderÕs ticket of Edmonds & Remnants on rear paste-down, hinges invisibly repaired, title-page with vertical crease as usual, one or two very minor tears in text margins, preserved in a cloth box. First edition, a very good copy, with slight wear to the cloth as usual, of the single most important scientific book ever published. ÒThe publication of [On the Origin] ushered in a new era in our thinking about the nature of man. The intellectual revolution it caused and the impact it had on manÕs concept of himself and the world were greater than those caused by the works of Copernicus, Newton, and the great physicists of more recent times. . . . Every modern discussion of manÕs future, the population explosion, the struggle for existence, the purpose of man and the universe, and manÕs place in nature rests on DarwinÓ (Ernst Mayr). Dibner 199. Freeman 373. Garrison and Morton 220. Horblit 23b. Norman Library I, 594. Printing and the Mind of Man 344b. Note: 1250 copies were printed; they occur in various binding variants with no priority established and with various states of the adverts also with no priority established (June 1859 is generally seen as the earliest). Provenance: bookplate of P.W. Phipps (family name of the Barons Mulgrave): private collection Canada. This copy has never been sold at auction or through the trade. Bookseller Inventory # 105793

Book Description: 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.

Book Description: Murray, 1860. Second edition, second issue as usual, dated 1860. Original publisher's green cloth, titled in gilt to the spine with blind stamped decoration to the covers, brown coated endpapers. 32pp of adverts dated January 1860. A very good copy indeed, which is bright and fresh with a small, invisible split to the head of the spine and a minor abrasion to the front endpaper. Internally clean with tight hinges and just a little looseness between some sections. A well preserved copy of a fragile book. Single fold-out diagram. Almost universally regarded as the most important scientific book of the nineteenth century. "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionised 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). For the second edition, "The misprint 'speceies' is corrected and the whale-bear story diluted, an alteration which Darwin later regretted, although he never restored the full text" (Freeman).

Third edition, issued in April 1861, 2,000 copies printed. The text was extensively altered, and a table is given of the differences between it and the second edition, a feature that occurs in each subsequent Murray edition.

Half title page, folding diagram at p. 123. 2 pages of advertisements at end. Original green cloth stamped in gilt and blind; brown coated endpapers.

The text block is tight, I am fairly sure the endpapers are new, or at any rate have been inserted in the past twenty years, the previous collector owned the book for fifteen years and had not had the work done, but was not sure whether it had been done prior to his purchase.

Gilt ruling to spine compartments, minor scuffing and edgewear. Very good indeed, strong and extremely handsome. Includes errata slip for the Darwin review tipped in at the contents page. Contains the first appearance of Bishop Wilberforce's review of Darwin's Origin of Species, "review" being a technical term."frothing exhibition of ignorance" being the more colloquial description. Not only did this review bring him into Thomas Huxley's sights, resulting in their famous debate, it also probably did more to cement Darwin's reputation as a solid scientist in relation to a number of his peers (R.I. Murchison for example is reputed to have encouraged Wilberforce in his review out of sheer jealousy at the attention Darwin was receiving). A handsome copy of a scarce piece of natural history, an important review of a very important book. Bookseller Inventory # 41576

This is the first edition with the title The Origin of Species, with a new chapter (VII) to challenge the views of St. George Mivart and other additions. With a glossary. Evolution is used for the first time in this 6th edition. The most famous confrontation was at the public 1860 Oxford evolution debate during a meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, where the Bishop of Oxford Samuel Wilberforce, though not opposed to transmutation of species, argued against Darwin's explanation and human descent from apes. Joseph Hooker argued strongly for Darwin, and Thomas Huxley's legendary retort, that he would rather be descended from an ape than a man who misused his gifts, came to symbolise a triumph of science over religion.
