An IX-1801, 8vo, VIII, 432 pages et 8 folded tables, contemporary calf (some lacks of leather at the spine and on the first cover) The genesis of Lamarckian theory of the evolution of species First edition. Complete copy with the leaf "402 bis" and with the inside very fresh. "Lamarck's first public presentation of his theory of evolution was in his opening discourse for his course on invertebrates at the museum in 1800 ; it was published the following year at the beginning of his Syst√™me des animaux sans vert√®bres." (DSB) Indeed, Lamarck wrote at the page 15 of his opening speach : "Je pourrais prouver que ce n'est point la forme soit du corps, soit de ses parties qui donne lieu aux habitudes, √† la mani√®re de vivre des animaux ; mais que ce sont au contraire les habitudes, la mani√®re de vivre et toutes les circonstances influentes qui ont, avec le temps, constitu√© la forme du corps et des parties des animaux. Avec de nouvelles formes, de nouvelles facult√©s ont √©t√© acquises, et, peu √† peu, la nature est parvenue √† l’√©tat o√Ļ nous la voyons actuellement". Furthermore, in this book, Lamarck systematizes the study of inverterbrates, generalizes the use of the word ("inverterbrate) and created a new system of classification based on Cuvier's work on comparative anatomy. "He separated spiders and crustaceans from insects, and classified worms into truer categories than had Linnaeus" (Dibner, 194). Bel exemplaire de ce texte doublement fondateur, en premier √©tat sans le feuillet 402bis de "Second addition". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
