About this Item: Jonn Murray, London, 1890. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good (Minus). No Jacket. First Thus. London: Jonn Murray, 1890. Darwin's first published book; of equal importance as the "Origin of Species." This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of the "New Edition." Green cloth binding with a gilt illustration of the Rhea hunt on the front cover; gilt titling on the spine. Clean text; xi, 500 pages, indexed. Frontis portrait of Darwin. No later publisher's catalog. Previous-owner signature and stamp on the FFEP; some light flood-marking on the first few pages (mainly the endpapers). Bumped corners, rubbing at the margins. The gutters have cracked but seem to be holding nicely. There is some rather oppressive mottling affecting the spine and front cover, looking almost like the result of a chemical spill. Please note the condition issue. While this is a basically sound copy, Quercus must offer it as a Binding Copy, in need of repair or restoration. We find this an excellent candidate for a nice rebind. First Thus. Decorative Cloth. Very Good (Minus)/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 004215

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1846. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Journal of Researches into Natural History and Geology of the Countries during the Voyage of H. M. S. Beagle round the World under the Command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R. N. Width: 5" Height: 7.5" This is the scarce first volume of a two-volume first American edition. Bound in blind-stamped brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Front cover has a design in gilt showing hands passing a torch. Minor wear to boards and spine, pages are very good. The book is in great condition. Charles Robert Darwin, FRS was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding. Darwin published his theory of evolution with compelling evidence in his 1859 book "On the Origin of Species," overcoming scientific rejection of earlier concepts of transmutation of species. By the 1870s the scientific community and much of the general public had accepted evolution as a fact. However, many favoured competing explanations and it was not until the emergence of the modern evolutionary synthesis from the 1930s to the 1950s that a broad consensus developed in which natural selection was the basic mechanism of evolution. In modified form, Darwin's scientific discovery is the unifying theory of the life sciences, explaining the diversity of life. Darwin's early interest in nature led him to neglect his medical education at the University of Edinburgh; instead, he helped to investigate marine invertebrates. Studies at the University of Cambridge encouraged his passion for natural science. His five-year voyage on HMS Beagle established him as an eminent geologist whose observations and theories supported Charles Lyell's uniformitarian ideas, and publication of his journal of the voyage made him famous as a popular author. Puzzled by the geographical distribution of wildlife and fossils he collected on the voyage, Darwin began detailed investigations and in 1838 conceived his theory of natural selection. Although he discussed his ideas with several naturalists, he needed time for extensive research and his geological work had priority. He was writing up his theory in 1858 when Alfred Russel Wallace sent him an essay which described the same idea, prompting immediate joint publication of both of their theories. Darwin's work established evolutionary descent with modification as the dominant scientific explanation of diversification in nature. In 1871 he examined human evolution and sexual selection in "The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex," followed by "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. " His research on plants was published in a series of books, and in his final book, he examined earthworms and their effect on soil. In recognition of Darwin's pre-eminence as a scientist, he was honoured with a major ceremonial funeral and buried in Westminster Abbey, close to John Herschel and Isaac Newton. Darwin has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history. (Biographical information courtesy of Wikipedia). Seller Inventory # 272

About this Item: John Murray, London, 1860. Cloth. Condition: Very good. xv, 519, 32 p. 21 cm. 11 b&w wood engravings and diagrams within text. Green cloth hardcover with blank impressing. Spine ends repaired. Corners bumped. Dents in tops of boards. Bookplate, ink signature, and small label on front pastedown and ink notation on rear. Hinges repaired internally. Initials across from title page and ink mark on margin of xiv. Darwin's first published book is also his most read and stands second only to "The Origin of Species" as the most printed. Usually referred to today as the "Voyage of the Beagle" it makes for interesting reading as a travel book as well as a scientifc text. Darwin actually spent as little time as possible on board the Beagle; he was miserably sea-sick and preferred extensive expeditions on land. Those excursions allowed him to describe the "savages" of South America, the Great Tortoises of the Galapagos, Australian convicts, and the cruelties of slavery. This printing is the final definitive text with the first appearance of the Postscript on p. vii dated February 1, 1860, in which Darwin corrects a few errors. This is also the first publishing in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of "On the Origin of Species." 32 pages of publisher's advertising at rear dated January 1860 show the variety of Murray's published works. Freeman 20. First printing of second edition. "Tenth Thousand". Seller Inventory # 119430
