Item 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].

'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.

Item Description: Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1959., 1959. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 816 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, without dust jacket. This is the original edition, not the print-on-demand reprint. 'The theories propounded by Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species have had a profound and revolutionary effect, not only on biology but also on philosophy, history, and theology. His concept of natural selection has created eruptive disputes among scientists and religious leaders of his time and ours. The phenomenal importance of his brilliant work is universally recognized, but the present volume marks the first scholarly attempt to compile a complete variorum edition of The Origin of Species, covering all of the extensive variants in the six texts published between 1859 and 1872. Darwin's changes were extensive. His book grew by a third as he rewrote many passages four or five times, and in this edition Morse Peckham has recorded every one of those changes. A book of such distinctive dimensions, on a subject of such profound importance, will be of intense interest to historians of biology, evolution, science, literature, and cultural development. It will be an invaluable aid to the clarification and full comprehension of this complex and renowned scientific classic' (Web site of the University of Pennsylvania Press, which reprinted the book in paperback in 2006, ISBN 0812219546, new price $32.50). 'Darwin produced six editions [of The Origin of Species] during his lifetime and, as Peckham demonstrated nearly fifty years ago, he tinkered constantly with the text, adding and amending, revising and rethinking and, above all, responding to criticism' (Times Literary Supplement). Also, the 2004 Castle Books edition (ISBN: 0785819118) is NOT a reprint of Peckham's Variorum Edition, as some suggest. Bookseller Inventory # 18596
