Item Description: John Murray, London, 1859. First edition, an untouched copy in its original binding, of "the most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" (Horblit) and "the most important biological work ever written" (Freeman). "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). Bern Dibner’s Heralds of Science describes On the Origin of Species as "the most important single work in science." Darwin had assimilated the researches and observations from his five years as naturalist aboard the survey ship H.M.S. Beagle into the essential formulation of his theory of natural selection more than two decades before On the Origin of Species appeared, but he may not have published his revolutionary theory during his lifetime had not Alfred R. Wallace independently come to a nearly identical conclusion about the transmutation of species. After the Linnean Society read and published jointly Darwin and Wallace’s preliminary expositions of the theory of evolution, Darwin rushed to prepare for publication an epitome of the ‘big species book’ that he had been working on since 1856. Originally conceived as a work that might be printed on four or five sheets of paper, Origin evolved during the eight months of its writing into a volume of nearly 500 pages. The final scope of Origin prompted Darwin to abandon plans for his ‘big book,’ although he salvaged much of the first part of the manuscript for The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication, published in 1868. On the Origin of Species caused an immediate sensation.

Item 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.

Item Description: D. Appleton & Company, New York, 1860. Book Condition: 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.

Item Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # 28009

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1860. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: 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.

The text and fold-out diagram are clean, THE BOOK: 'can we doubt . that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.
