        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      John Murray, London, 1860, Three-quarters leather, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 2nd EditionPUBLISHING DETAILS: Second edition, fifth thousand of Darwin's masterpiece, published by John Murray of London in 1860, the year following the first edition. 502 pages, top edge gilt, with no advertisements at the rear. Size; 20 x 14 cms (8" x 5.5"). Weight; 690g (1 pound eight ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. It is rebound in three-quarters tan leather over marbled boards with 5 raised bands to the spine, with gilt titling. There is surface wear to the leather at the hinges which are, however, firm. Also wear to the top and tail of the spine and one gilt titling panel missing (although the title imprint is still visible). The binding remains tight and secure throughout. The text and fold-out diagram are clean, bright and free from foxing, with light, even age-toning. Heresy to say so, but the text appears unread. Two small blemishes to the front pastedown. All in all, a very smart copy of this desirable early printing of 'certainly the most important biological book ever written' (Darwin Online). THE BOOK:'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. Size: 20 x 14 (8" x 5.5") Pages: 502

        The 104th Psalm

      Henry Hering, London - An uncommon panorama with a continuous flow of changing landscapes, many of which have a bucolic element. N.d., circa 1860. Closed, oblong, 11.5 by 16 cm. 25 hand-colored panels, each 10 by 15.25 cm. Fully extended, then, the panorama is about 380 cm. Captions running across the bottom are lines from the 104th Psalm, which is loosely the springboard for the illustrations. The effect of the panorama is akin to the fabulous wallpaper panoramiques that were manufactured by French companies such as Huber and Dufour in the early to mid-19th century. In terms of the illustration, without reference to the captioned lines from the psalm, they are as much a Pantheistic celebration as a biblical religious statement. The few religious figures such as the angels actually serve to enliven things. Light wear to the moire cloth cover. Soiling on the endpapers and the title. The panorama itself is quite clean.

        Die Cultur der Renaissance in Italien

      Basel: Schweighauser Verlag,, 1860. Octavo (221 x 136 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco, raised bands to spine, titles to spine gilt, brown pebble grained boards, green endpapers. Spine sunned, extremities lightly rubbed and a touch bumped, minor wear to corners, paper of front board slightly chipped along side, inner hinges partly cracked but still firm. A very good copy. First edition. Written by Burckhardt (1818-1897) between 1855 and 1858, Die Kultur der Renaissance is a milestone in cultural history. While the author's definition and historical description of the Renaissance have been rightfully questioned, "no criticism can detract from the powerful spell which Burckhardt's book has exercised upon such widely different writers as Ruskin, Nietzsche and Gobineau, as well as upon innumerable lovers of the most magnificent period of European history" (PMM, p. 211). Loosely inserted is a newspaper clipping from the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 11 September 1960, of an article on the book, written by the Swiss historian and Burckhardt biographer Werner Kaegi to commemorate the centenary of the publication date.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

      John Murray, 1860, Half Leather, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Second EditionSize: 12,5cm x 19cm, Second edition, second issue (there are only a few known copies of the first issue with the title page dated 1859), with the 1860 date and "Fifth Thousand" on title page. Corrections have been made to "Speceies" on p. 20, and "Linnean" is spelled correctly on the title page. One of only 3,000 copies printed in the second edition, on January 7th 1860, after the first edition of 1,250 copies was sold on the day of publication, November 24th 1859. The second and subsequent editions also sold out very quickly. Octavo in twelves. ix, [1, "Instructions to Binder"], 502 pages. Bound without the half-title page. Folding lithographed diagram by William West, indicating Darwin's views of possible sequences of evolution, facing p. 117. Modern three-quarter green crushed morocco over green cloth, gilt decorative rules to covers, spine in six compartments with five raised bands and decorated and lettered in gilt. Paper slightly browned with light foxing on title and preliminary and terminal leaves, occasional light foxing and marginal soiling to sheets. A few marginal pencil marks. Overall, an excellent copy, in a handsome and appropriate binding. One of the most influential scientific works of the nineteenth century, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) one of the most controversial. In it, "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1860. - Lithograph, 13 1/2 x 18 inches. Moderate age-toning, foxing, and soiling. Moderate browning in margins. Small closed tears and chips in margins, one moderate-size closed tear in left margin. A fair copy. A lithograph political cartoon published by Currier & Ives commenting upon the anti- slavery plank of the 1860 Republican platform. Abraham Lincoln is shown being carried uncomfortably in the middle of a split wooden rail, an allusion to both the platform and to Lincoln's backwood's origins. Supporting the left end of the rail is a black man in simple working clothes who states, "Dis Nigger strong and willin' but its awful hard work to carry Old Massa Abe on nothing but dis ere rail!!" Holding the right end of the rail is well-dressed newspaper editor and strong Lincoln supporter Horace Greeley (identified by a copy of his NEW YORK TRIBUNE in his coat pocket). Greeley tells Lincoln, "We can prove that you have split rails & that will ensure your election to the Presidency." Lincoln replies, "It is true I have split rails, but I begin to feel as if this rail would split me, it's the hardest stick I ever straddled." A finely drawn and insightful political cartoon from the 1860 election. REILLY, AMERICAN POLITICAL PRINTS, 1860-31. WEITENKAMPF, POLITICAL CARICATURE IN THE UNITED STATES, p.123.

      [Woburn, Ma. and elsewhere]. 1860-1864, and sporadically later.. 325pp. Quarto. Original three-quarter calf and marbled boards, paper label. Boards nearly detached and scuffed. Some leaves loose. Extra- illustrated with many clippings. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. Charles Symmes Parker (1839-1928) was a printer and newspaper editor for over fifty years. Before the Civil War, when most of the diary was written, he worked as a printer in Woburn, Massachusetts, purchasing into his first paper in 1861 at the tender age of twenty-one. He writes on March 26, 1861: "Last Saturday morning I was greatly surprised at receiving an offer from Messrs. Hastings & Parker of an interest in the BUDGET concern, and after consideration and advice have concluded to accept, buying out a third of the concern, valued at six hundred dollars...I had no thought of such a thing as going into business, not feeling satisfied that my experience and age would warrant such a step, but this offer appears so advantageous I have ventured to accept it." Parker discusses the printing and newspaper business in various scattered passages. In June of 1861 he writes of the effect of the Civil War on business: "I went to Boston on Saturday to make arrangements for some printing for George Guild. Business in the city is very dull indeed, and the only place I visited which looked like prosperity was J.E. Farnell's printing office, he having secured the city printing." And later, in July: "There is little or no work to be done, but I suppose we get our fair share of what there is doing." And in August: "Since the disaster at Bull Run, business has sunk still lower, until now it is discouraging even to look forward. The prospect is dark enough." The diary spans June 1860 through September 1862, and then sporadically covers time between 1864 and 1923. Along with a series of rich familial details, the diary features extremely detailed commentary on local politics and the heated 1860 presidential election by a Lincoln supporter. Parker had the opportunity to meet Lincoln's opponent, Stephen Douglas, and described him at length on August 19, 1860: "His face looks as though he has been on a 'bender' for a month. It bears unmistakable evidence that he loves the bottle." In 1904, on his sixty-fifth birthday, Parker seems to have picked the volume up to retrospectively record the events of his life and times. He writes on April 11, 1904: "This is my 65th birthday and consequently this old book, intended to be a daily record of personal matters, has been neglected for nearly 38 years." In 1874, Parker purchased the ARLINGTON ADVOCATE, which he edited and operated for the next fifty years. For the centennial celebration of Arlington, in 1907, he wrote and published a history of the town. He lived not only through the Civil War and Lincoln's assassination, but through World War I and all points in between. With regard to the effect of the Great War on the newspaper business, he writes: "The World War into which the United States entered in 1917, made great changes in business methods of every sort, especially in the ranks of the employed. My foreman was one of the first to be called to service. The filling of this place tried my nerve. I finally secured a Mrs. Lum[?], who proved better than any man previously tried" (p.287). Parker lists the people of note whom he has had the good fortune to meet, among them many notable newspapermen, including Horace Greeley, James Gordon Bennett, and William Cullen Bryant; the aforementioned Stephen Douglas; and President Rutherford B. Hayes, with whom he spoke at length about the evils of drink. With many clippings and extra biographical information inserted. A topical index has been added by Parker at the front of the text. Parker wrote very detailed prose in a highly legible hand. A fascinating autobiographical chronicle.

        The History ofEngland From the Ascension of James the Second

      77 - London - Longmans, Green and Co.8.5 by 5.5, xxxvi, 685; xiii, 686; xiii, 744; xii, 829; vii, 398pp, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright, uniform set of The History of England and Macaulay's Miscellaneous Writings. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and spine decoration. Volume V of The History of England is 'Edited by his Sister, Lady Trevelyan'. There is a 'Bound by Mudie' ink stamp on thefront free-endpaper of each volume. There is a nameplate for Reginald Brett on the front pastedown of each volume. Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, PC, 1800 1859, was a British poet, historian and Whig politician and one of the two Members of Parliament for Edinburgh. He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer, and on British history. Macaulays life was extensive, with careers in the legal profession, in politics, especially India, in literature and in history. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography describes him as a sensitive man, who hid a distaste of politics behind a touchy independence, whose impact was most felt on issues like Indian administration and copyright laws where his specialist knowledge helped sway votes. His ministerial work bored him. Macaulay was a literary man at the core, preferring drama and epic poetry to the banal of the everyday. He was never happier than in his study engaging in a dialogue with his favourite authors. Reginald Baliol Brett, 2nd Viscount Esher, GCVO, KCB, PC, DL, 1852 1930, was a historian and Liberal politician in the United Kingdom. Behind the scenes, he influenced many pre-World War I reforms carried out by Campbell-Bannerman and Asquith. Brett was offered many public offices, including the Viceroyalty of India and the Secretaryship for War, but declined. As a historian, Lord Esher, amongst others, published works on King Edward VII and Lord Kitchener. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, with the very occasional spot, most prominent on the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is very good..
