About this Item: Everyman's Library, New York, 2012. First edition, later printing of these two groundbeaking works by Darwin. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Richard Dawkins on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Introduction by Richard Dawkins. Easily the most influential book published in the nineteenth century, Darwin's The Origin of Species is also that most unusual phenomenon, an altogether readable discussion of a scientific subject. On its appearance in 1859 it was immediately recognized by enthusiasts and detractors alike as a work of the greatest importance: the revolutionary theory of evolution by means of natural selection that it presented provoked a furious reaction that continues to this day. The Origin of Species is here published together with Darwin's earlier "Voyage of the 'Beagle'. This 1839 account of the journeys to South America and the Pacific islands that first put Darwin on the track of his remarkable theories derives an added charm from his vivid description of his travels in exotic places and his eye for the piquant detail.

About this Item: Thomas Nelson and Sons, London, 1890. Full Gilt Calf Extra. Condition: Very Good. Charles Darwin (illustrator). Third Edition. "The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological sciences. Darwin sailed with no formal scientific training. He returned a hard-headed man of science, knowing the importance of evidence, almost convinced that species had not always been as they were since the creation but had undergone change. He also developed doubts of the value of the Scriptures as a trustworthy guide to the history of the earth and of man, with the result that he gradually became an agnostic. The experiences of his five years in the Beagle, how he dealt with them, and what they led to, built up into a process of epoch-making importance in the history of thought."-D.S.B., III, p. 566. In this set, the third volume with Darwin's contributions, is the first separate edition, also issued in 1839. the first American edition was issued in 1846. The full title of the first great study of Darwin was Seller Image A Naturalist's Voyage Round the World; Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited During the Voyage Round the World of H.M.S.

About this Item: W.W. Norton & Company, New York, 2006. First edition of this collection of the four works of Darwin. Thick octavo, original half cloth. Signed by the editor, Edward O. Wilson on the title page, who has drawn an image of an ant. Near fine in a fine dust jacket. The original slipcase is in near fine condition. Never before have the four great works of Charles Darwin Voyage of the H.M.S. Beagle (1845), The Origin of Species (1859), The Descent of Man (1871), and The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals (1872) been collected under one cover. Undertaking this challenging endeavor 123 years after Darwin's death, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Edward O. Wilson has written an introductory essay for the occasion, while providing new, insightful introductions to each of the four volumes and an afterword that examines the fate of evolutionary theory in an era of religious resistance. In addition, Wilson has crafted a creative new index to accompany these four texts, which links the nineteenth-century, Darwinian evolutionary concepts to contemporary biological thought. Beautifully slipcased, and including restored versions of the original illustrations, From So Simple a Beginning turns our attention to the astounding power of the natural creative process and the magnificence of its products.
