Item Description: Macmillan Company, New York, 1906. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good +. First Edition. First edition published December 1906 on copyright page. Green hardcover boards with gilt lettering & gilt page edges. 393 pages, illustrated with original plates with tissue guards. Uncommon & important treatise on the early explorations of Mars. Binding is tight with slight spine slant, soiled boards, rear interior hinge is cracked with some exposure, gift inscription on inside end page. Pages & plates are clean. Percival Lawrence Lowell (1855-1916) was a businessman, author, mathematician, and astronomer who fueled speculation that there were canals on Mars, founded the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, and formed the beginning of the effort that led to the discovery of Pluto 14 years after his death. The choice of the name Pluto and its symbol were partly influenced by his initials PL. Lowell became determined to study Mars and astronomy as a full-time career after reading Camille Flammarion's La planète Mars. He was particularly interested in the canals of Mars, as drawn by Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli, who was director of the Milan Observatory. In 1894 Lowell chose Flagstaff, Arizona Territory as the home of his new observatory. At an altitude of over 7000 feet, with few cloudy nights, and far from city lights, Flagstaff was an excellent site for astronomical observations. This marked the first time an observatory had been deliberately located in a remote, elevated place for optimal seeing. For the next fifteen years he studied Mars extensively, and made intricate drawings of the surface markings as he perceived them. Lowell published his views in three books: Mars (1895), Mars and Its Canals (1906), and Mars As the Abode of Life (1908). With these writings, Lowell more than anyone else popularized the long-held belief that these markings showed that Mars sustained intelligent life forms. His works include a detailed description of what he termed the 'non-natural features' of the planet's surface, including especially a full account of the 'canals,' single and double; the 'oases,' as he termed the dark spots at their intersections; and the varying visibility of both, depending partly on the Martian seasons. He theorized that an advanced but desperate culture had built the canals to tap Mars' polar ice caps, the last source of water on an inexorably drying planet. While this idea excited the public, the astronomical community was skeptical. Many astronomers could not see these markings, and few believed that they were as extensive as Lowell claimed. As a result, Lowell and his observatory were largely ostracized. Bookseller Inventory # 3935

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1907. First edition. 8vo. xii, 110, (2 advertisement) pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt rules to the spine and upper board, gilt lettered to the former and with a circular title device incorporating the author's initials to the latter, the early pictorial bookplate of a Pat Murray to the front pastedown. Frontispiece and a plate. Some very mild rubbing to the extremities, a very good copy. Wallace's public refutation of Percival Lowell's theory of Martian canals and with it the possibility of life forms and even an advanced civilisation having existed on the red planet, the latter's book having been first published the year before. The work can be seen as an extension of Wallace's previous book "Man's Place in the Universe" of 1903, in which he argued that Earth was the only place in the universe that could support life due it to being the only planet which could sustain water in liquid form.

Item Description: Macmillan, 1907., London:, 1907. 8vo. xii, 110, [2 ads.] pp. Frontis., 1 plate. Original green gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership signature of A.S. Heard. Fine. First edition. Contemporary riposte to the theories of Lowell regarding the possibility of life on Mars and the interpretation of canals on its surface. Written in refute to Percival Lowell's Mars and Its Canals, 1906, this treatise presents the author's belief that life, as we know it, cannot exist elsewhere in the universe. Wallace (1823-1913) was a brilliant creative thinker and naturalist. He rarely avoided controversy and was at his best while collecting evidence against an argument. By doing so, he greatly enriched science. Charles H. Smith noted about this volume, "For many years one of Wallace's least remembered books, Is Mars Habitable? is increasingly being recognized as one of the first examples of the proper application of the scientific method to the study of extraterrestrial atmospheres and geography--that is, as one of the pioneer works in the field of exobiology.".
