        On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection

      John Murray, London, 1869, Original Cloth, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 5th or later EditionPUBLISHING DETAILS: Rare fifth edition, tenth thousand of Darwin's great book, one of only 2000 copies, published by John Murray of London in 1869. 596 pages, no advertisements to rear. Size; 20 x 14 cms (8" x 5.5"). Weight; 835g (1 pound 13 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. The original green cloth covers, with gilt titling to the spine, are cleaner and sounder than often found with slight wear to the corners and darkening to the spine (see photo). The binding is tight and strong having probably been rebacked at some time. The text and pull out diagram are clean and bright and free from foxing. The trimming of a few bottom edges is a little irregular, an original printing/binding error. There is a stylishly penned 1869 owner's inscription on the half-title page, that of H G Dakyns, emminent British translator of Ancient Greek texts and friend of Tennyson. This is altogether a very handsome and desirable early printing of 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. N.B. It is in this edition that Darwin used the expression 'survival of the fittest', Herbert Spencer's term, for the first time. Size: 20 x 14 (8" x 5.5") Pages: 596

        Plate LV, Bimaculated Teal, Female

      London, 1869 Prideaux John Selby (1788-1867) created some of the most memorable bird images of the 19th century. This expertly hand-colored copperplate engraving, Plate LV, Bimaculated Teal, Female, from his work “Illustrations of British Ornithology,” measures 21.25” x 25.75” and is in mint condition. This female Bimacualed Teal, also known as Bikal Teal, is expertly hand-colored with intricate plumage in rich brown shades, with white detailing and a green wing flank.Selby’s contributions to British Ornithology were rivaled only by those of John Gould, and yet his images were on a larger scale and less purely scientific, exhibiting Selby's distinctive and charming style. nBorn in Northumberland and educated at University College, Oxford, Selby was a landowner and squire with ample time to devote to the study of the plant and animal life at his country estate, Twizell House. As a boy, he had studied the habits of local birds, drawn them, and learned how to preserve and set up specimens.Later, Selby became an active member of several British natural history societies and contributed many articles to their journals. Although Selby was interested in botany and produced a "History of British Trees" in 1842, he is best known for his "Illustrations of British Ornithology," printed in 1820, the first attempt to produce a set of life-sized illustrations of British birds, remarkable for their naturalism and the delicacy of their execution. Issued in nineteen parts over thirteen years, the book consisted of 89 plates of land birds and 129 plates of water birds, engraved by William Lizars of Edinburgh.

        Chirurgische Klinik. Zürich 1860-1867. Erfahrungen auf dem Gebiete der praktischen Chirurgie.

      - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1869, 8°, XII, 605 pp., 15 Holzschn., 3 lith. Taf., feiner Halbleinenband. First Edition - Rare "Separat - Abdruck" aus dem Archiv für klinische Chirurgie. Bd. X." - "Billroth was reproted to be a good plastic surgeon, espacially in facial reconstruction, because of his artistic imagination. During his time in Zürich, he operated upon 32 children, up to the age of two years, with clefts of the lip and palate - using the method of Magaigne and von Langenbeck. His mortality was 11,5 per cent and he concluded, from this figure, that early operation in children was justified. Concerning the speech results of his adault patients (19 cases), he noticed that they were discouraging - and that the foremost problem in palatal closure was, indeed to obtain good spech." McDowell, The source book of plastic surgery, p.204f. - First Edition in bookform. Rare, In 1860 Billroth accepted a call to Zürich. He remains seven years there, and during this period more than 8000 surgical patients passed through his hand. The report of his activity is characterised by a relentles sincerity and selfcritism. - Billroth's Jahresberichte - Meilensteine chirurgischer Forschung. - Erste Ausgabe in Buchform. "Seine 'Chirurgische Erfahrungen' bedeuten einen Markstein - den Beginn der klinischen Forschungen im empirischen Sinne, insbesondere auf dem Gebiet der Chirurgie."- Sandblom - "Seine Jahresberichte aus Zürich u. Wien eröffneten jedem einen klaren Einblick in die Resultate seiner Klinik. Sie sind mit rücksichtsloser Offenheit und schonungsloser Selbstkritik geschrieben, und das zu einer Zeit begonnen, in welcher die Misserfolge überwogen. Seine vorausgeschickte Begründung gehört zu dem Schönsten im Schriftum unseres Faches."-Payer, Billroth Gedenkrede (1929) "Das Einzigartige an ihm waren seine Wahrheitsliebe und seine Selbstkritik. Seine Erfahrungsberichte aus den 60er und 70er Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts wirkten schlechthin sensationell, weil er es als erster wagte, alle, auch die negativen Ergebnisse seiner chirurgischen Tätigkeit ungeschminkt zu publizieren." -E.Kern Nach 12 vergeblichen Bewerbungen erreichte 1859 den Dreißigjährigen der Ruf nach Zürich, hier wirkte Billroth 7 Jahre. In diesen wenigen Jahren begründete er seinen chirurgischen Weltruf. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Oregon Treaty and the Hudson's Bay Company

      Np: Unknown [circa 1869], 1st printing. () 15pp. Very good. Octavo pamphlet. Original printed wrappers. Sewn as issued. One old repair from a tape mark otherwise in very nice condition. Smith 580. Very scarce. Only three copies were found in worldcat. George Barnston (c. 1800 – 14 March 1883) was a fur trader and a naturalist born in Edinburgh, Scotland.Barnston was trained as a surveyor and army engineer. He joined the North West Company in 1820 and was retained by the Hudson’s Bay Company after the 1821 amalgamation. He began his HBC career at York Factory (Manitoba) and from there he helped outfit two forts in the south; Lower Fort Garry, and Fort du Bas de la Rivière at the mouth of the Winnipeg River.The two authors seem to be critical of the present HBC board and are voicing their concerns in this pamphlet..

      Dawentang 1869 - Un volume in-8 relié demi-chagrin vert dos lisse orné de filets dorés, 6 parties sur 8, les signes des Han sont ecrits en écriture d'herbe et sur leur droite on été placé les idéogrammes tel qu'ils sont écrits trait par trait de la façon la plus lisible, c'est donc un ouvrage que l'on peux qualifier de paléographie orientale, toutefois le style d'herbe est toujours utilisé mais posséde sa codification propre, c'est d'ailleurs plus un style de calligraphie ; bel état de sa rare ouvrage.

        Hésiode, Hymnes orphiques, Théocrite, Biôn, Moskhos, Tyrtée, Odes anacréontiques. Traduction nouvelle.

      Alphonse Lemerre 1869 - - Alphonse Lemerre, Paris 1869, 16x24,5cm, relié sous emboitage. - Edition originale de la traduction de Leconte de Lisle. Demi maroquin rouge à coins, dos à 5 nerfs, tête dorée, contreplats et gardes de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, quelques rares rousseurs, emboitage de toile beige, reliure moderne. Précieux envoi autographe de l'auteur à George Sand : "A Madame G. Sand, hommage de respectueuse admiration, Leconte de Lisle". Dès ses premiers écrits, Leconte de Lisle se plaça directement sous l'influence de George Sand, à qui il dédia deux poèmes de jeunesse : A George Sand et Lélia dans la solitude. Cette filiation se transforma progressivement en admiration réciproque, puisque George Sand rendra hommage à l'auteur dans un article du Temps du 31 juillet 1872 : "M. Leconte de Lisle est grand poète aussi, et d'une si forte originalité qu'il est devenu chef d'école. On lui doit une vraie reconnaissance ? il faudrait que ce fût une reconnaissance nationale". Cet envoi, sous forme d'hommage, rend compte de l'estime et de l'admiration réciproque que se portaient les deux auteurs. Très bel hommage littéraire sur un exemplaire joliment relié.
