Item Description: Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden), Cornelium Haak, 1744. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful hcalf (from around 1840) with profusely gilt spine. Titlelabel with gilt lettering. Old name on top of titlepage. (1-2)3-104 pp. Printed on good paper. Clean. Withbound. Olaus Celsius: (Hebrew) Sive melones Aegyptii, ab Israélitis desiderati." Leiden, Conradum Wishoff,1726. (1-2)3-28 pp. The scarce first edition of Linnés most importent contribution to historical geology. In his odd speech on "The Growth of the Earth" ("Oratio de telluris habitabilis incremento" [1743]) and in later works Linnaeus gave his conception of the development of the planet. Inspired by the Christian doctrine of paradise and the old concept of the golden age, he imagined paradise as an island on the equator, from which animals and plants, with the decrease of the water, spread out over the earth. In the 1740’s he contributed observations in the field to the lively debates in Sweden about "water reduction" i.e., the uplift of the Swedish plateau in postglacial time. He believed that the sedimentary strata had been deposited over enormous time periods but, mindful of ecclesiastical orthodoxy, he was wary of expressing his heretical views on the age of the world and the length of the geological epochs."

Item Description: Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden), Conradum Wishoff, 1738. 8vo. Later boards, spine gilt, titlelabel with gilt lettering. Spine slightly rubbed. (24),66,(2);(4),92;(1 blank);(8),84,(4);(4),112,(2);(2),118,(22) pp. Part 4 misbound after part 5 (but not the titlepage). Very light browning to a few leaves, otherwise an uncommen clean copy, printed on good paper. First edition of this rare, important and early contribution to the taxonomy of fishes, generally considered the FOUNDING WORK OF ICHTHYOLOGY."Artedi’s major work, was published three years after his death by his friend Carl Linnaeus. The work shaped ichthyological research for centuries. Artedi was also the first scientist to use Latin names in binary form, genus and species name. Later, Linnaeus condensed the species epithet to a single word and the principles of modern taxonomy were born." (Petrus Artedi Tricentennial 13-14 September 2005).Linnaeus and Artedi were friends at Uppsala University, but they were also competitors. They together formed a team which only could be compared to the team of the English Willoughby and Ray, and their objective was to replace the work of the two famous Englishmen. Artedi, beeing in Amsterdam to describe the fish collection of the rich pharmacist Albertus Seba, and Linnaeus met here. A few days after their meeting, Artedi drowned during the night between September 27 and 28, 1735. Two and a half years later, Linnaeus edited Artedi's ichthyological manuscript and published it. To the book Linnaeus added the life of Artedi and he wrote a short indtroduction to the chapters."On the night of 27 September 1735 suddenly ended the life of one of the most significant founders of the science of systematic biology when Petrus Artedi, Angermannius, drowned in a canal in Amsterdam. At the age of 30, he was still not a man of fame, and did not leave wife, children or portrait. Only manuscripts, the ichthyological ones edited and published by Carl Linnaeus in 1738.Since 1738 every scrap of information about Artedi has been carefully collected and arranged by ichthyologists and historians of science into a puzzle still full of lacunae. The big questions have been – who was this person? What would he have become had he lived on? Was Linnaeus really the genius, or was it Artedi? After all, Linnaeus is the baroque idol of the cultural wannabe élite. But in a scientific context he is but one in a web of masterminds continuously occupied with reconstructing the history of life on Earth." (Theodore W. Pietsch "The Curious Life of Peter Artedi", 2010).Soulsby: 3563 - Hulth: 1738.- Casey A. Wood p. 204. Bookseller Inventory # 47818

Item Description: Holmiae, Laurentius Salvius, 1758-59 + 1768. 8vo. Beautifully bound in two recent full mottled calf bindings, in pastiche, with five raised bands, and gilt title-labels to spine. Gilt borders to boards and blindstamped ornamental borders to inside of boards. Title-page of volume 1 with two neatly repaired tears, no loss. Very discreet stamp in blind to title-page (Boston Society Natural History). A few leaves lightly brownspotted, otherwise exceptionally clean (vol. 1 presumably cleaned). All in all a lovely copy. (4), 823, (1, -errata, being p. (824)); (4) pp, pp. 825-1384 + 236, (20, -Index) pp. + 3 folded, engraved plates. The extremely rare seminal tenth edition of Linnaeus' main work (here bound together with the 3rd part, published 10 years later), being the most important edition of this foundational work, as "[i]t is in this edition that Linnaeus carried out the definitive plan of binominal nomenclature, with diagnosis and synonyms, for the fist time, including the generic and the trivial names, which together form the specific name of each animal. This edition has therefore been accepted as "the basis of zoological nomenclature". (Sandberg no. 12). "Systema Natura" is considered the bible of natural history, and with the definitive tenth edition of it, it founded modern zooloical nomenclature and changed the science more profoundly than any other work before or after. "During his lifetime, Linnaeus exerted an influence in his field - botany and natural history - that had had few parallels in the history of science. Driven by indomitable ambition and aided by an incredible capacity for work, he accomplished the tremendous task that he had set for himself in his youth: the establishment of new systems for the three kingdoms of nature to facilitate the description of all known animals, plants, and minerals." (D.S.B. VIII:374)."He compiled this work, consisting only of seven folio leaves, as a first outline of what in its further development became the foundation of botanical and zoological classification systems. Linné was first and foemost a systematist, subordinating all botanical problems to that of classification. He established the principles of class, order, genus and species for all plants and animals. The tenth edition of the Systema Naturae, 1758, is his final version of the system by which many plants and animals are still named to this day with references "Linnaeus", "Linn." or "L." attached." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 114)."In this edition, the binomial system previously emplyed by Linnaeus in the work entitled "Museum Tessinianum" (1753) was extended in its application to all the kingdoms of nature; the Artedian classification of fishes, adopted in the earlier editions, was superseded by the familiar Linnaean system, and the cetaceans were for the first time eliminated from the class of fishes and grouped with the viviparous quadrupeds under the new class name Mammalia." (Soulsby)."TENTH, AND DEFINITIVE, EDITION; a scarce and highly important printing, which standardized zoological taxonomy and nomenclature and utilized binomial nomenclature (generic coupled with a specific epithet) throughout. In this edition, Linnaeus became the first naturalist to recognize whales as mammals." (Freilich-sale, no. 358).Sandberg 12; Norman 1:1359; Soulsby 58; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 4794; Hulth p.6.
