Item Description: Stuttgart : E. Schweizerbart'sche Verlagshandlung, 1876. First German edition., 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 1876 1ed German Charles Darwin Insectivorous Plants Carnivorous Botany Evolution “One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.” ― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species A rare first German edition of Charles Darwin’s “Insectivorous Plants”. This book was a study of Darwin’s experiments and observations on carnivorous plants, paying special attention to the conditions in which they lived. His most important finding was that these insect-eating plants only reacted to the movements of animals, not the prodding of a researcher. He also discovered many of the different ways these plants catch their prey, such as sticky substances, or hinged mouth-like leaves.

Item Description: London: John Murray, 1875., 1875. 8vo., (7 ¾ x 5 ½ inches). Half-title, publisher's advertisement to verso of title page. 30 in-text illustrations (some spotting throughout). Original publisher's green cloth, gilt-lettered spine (a bit rubbed, extremities worn with some loss). Provenance: With ownership inscription of George Basalla to front free endpaper. Freeman's sale 1540, April 4, 2016, Lot 177. First edition, "third thousand." FIRST EDITION of Darwin's study of insectivorous plants, with illustrations throughout. Figures 7 and 8 were engraved from drawings by Darwin. "Darwin began his work with insectivorous plants in the mid-1860s, though his findings would not be published until 1875. In his autobiography Darwin reflected on the delay that allowed him to refine his work: 'The delay in this case, as with all my other books, has been a great advantage to me; for a man after a long interval can criticise his own work, almost as well as if it were that of another person.' Several decades after he began this work, Darwin was clearly able to see that a plant 'should secrete' a 'fluid. closely analogous to the digestive fluid of an animal, was certainly a remarkable discovery.' The resulting volume, 'Insectivorous Plants' (1875) [as here], was one in a series of works in which Darwin explored the reaches of natural selection. This work allowed Darwin to focus on the features of insectivorous plants that allowed them to survive in difficult environments. Darwin used several experiments to stimulate the plants' trap mechanisms, including feeding them meat, blowing on them, and stimulating them with hair. Through his work he concluded that the plants would only react to the movements of 'prey'; Darwin believed that this was a wonderful adaptation for the plants as it enabled them to ignore unhelpful stimuli. "The monograph is an excellent example of Darwin's interest in scientific collaboration with other naturalists and experts; in particular he worked with Professor Edward Frankland of the Royal College of Chemistry in designing and executing some of the key experiments. Darwin's sons George and Francis helped him with the illustrations for the volume, each working up illustrations for the key species Darwin was most interested in: Drosera, Dionaea, Aldrovanda, and Utricularia. He also corresponded with the New Jersey naturalist, Mary Treat, about carnivorous plants. Darwin and Treat exchanged fifteen letters from 1871-1876 about the behavior and mechanisms of these plants. Darwin corresponded more with Treat than with any other female naturalist" (Darwin Correspondence Project, University of Cambridge online). Freeman 1219. Bookseller Inventory # 72MMS371

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1875. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Bibliographical introduction by R. B. Freeman:These meticulous studies form a minor contribution to the evolutionary series by the study of the adaptations of such plants to impoverished conditions. Darwin was helped by various physiologists and chemists in the experimental work, particularly by Professor Edward Frankland of the Royal College of Chemistry. His sons helped with the illustrations, George doing those for Drosera and Dionaea and Francis those for Aldrovanda and Utricularia. He himself was no draughtsman, but text figures 7 and 8 were cut from his drawings. The book was published on July 2, 1875, in a standard binding without inserted advertisements. It is stated that 3,000 were printed of which 2,700 were sold to the trade at once. This cannot be strictly true because both the second and third thousands of the same year stated their thousands on the title pages. The second has an errata slip of six lines, and in the third these six have been corrected, but another six have been found and again occur on a slip. The same slip is present in the fourth thousand of 1876. It was not printed again in Darwin's lifetime, but a second edition, edited by Francis appeared dated 1888. According to Murray's list this was issued in January 1889. It contains some small corrections taken from Darwin's marked copy of the first edition, as well as textual additions and footnotes by his son which are all contained in brackets. No repairs or rebacking, minor foxing to begiining pages. Very nice condtion. Rather than describe the condition in minute detail here, please ask for a full set of photos and catalogue. 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. Please ask for a complete catalogue. Bookseller Inventory # 01269
