        The Descent of Man

      As Darwin wrote, he posted chapters to his daughter Henrietta for editing to ensure that damaging inferences could not be drawn, and also took advice from his wife Emma. Many of the figures were drawn by the zoological illustrator T. W. Wood, who had also illustrated Wallace's The Malay Archipelago (1869). The corrected proofs were sent off on 15 January 1871 to the publisher John Murray and published on 24 February 1871 as two 450-page volumes, which Darwin insisted was it was one complete, coherent work, and were priced at £1 4 shillings.[1]Within three weeks of publication, a reprint had been ordered, and 4,500 copies were in print by the end of March 1871, netting Darwin almost £1,500.[2] Darwin's name created demand for the book, but the ideas were old news. "Everybody is talking about it without being shocked," which he found, "...proof of the increasing liberality of England".Editions and reprints:Darwin himself and some of his children edited many of the large numbers of revised editions, some extensively. In late 1873, Darwin tackled a new edition of the Descent of Man. Initially, he offered Wallace the work of assisting him, but, when Emma found out, she had the task given to their son George, so Darwin had to write apologetically to Wallace. Huxley assisted with an update on ape-brain inheritance, which Huxley thought "pounds the enemy into a jelly... though none but anatomists" would know it. The manuscript was completed in April 1874 and published on 13 November 1874 and has been the edition most commonly reprinted after Darwin's death and to the present.The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex is the second edition of a book on evolutionary theory by British naturalist Charles Darwin. The first edition was published in 1871, and the second, enlarged edition in 1874 (this Wikisource edition is based on an unchanged reprint of the second edition). It followed his 1859 work, The Origin of Species, and is concerned with outlining the application of Darwin's theory to human evolution and detailing the theory of sexual selection. The book touches on a number of related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between human sexes, and the relevance of evolutionary theory to society

        The Descent of Man. And selection in relation to sex

      Two volumes. Original green John Murray binding which has benefitted from professional repairs to the spine ends of both volumes, and repairs to the internal hinges. With bookplate of Nils Fries to the front paste-down of both volumes and his neat signature to ffep of both volumes also. Contents beautifully clean and seemingly unread. Boards very bright and with one minor scuff to the spine of volume 1; o/w. in thoroughly vg. condition. A nice set, hard to find in original bindings which are much preferred by Darwin collectors. Scarce. (Freeman 937). The first issue of 'The Descent of Man' had a print-run of just 2,500 copies. It was published in February 1871, closely followed in March 1871 by the second issue printing of a further 2,000 copies. Controversially received like 'Origin of Species' before it, the word 'evolution' occurs here for the first time in any of Darwin's works. It can be found on page 2 of the first volume.

        DOUBLE PLAY Or, How Joe Hardy chose his friends

      Boston: Lee, Shepard and Dillingham. Very Good. 1871. First Edition. Hardcover. (viii), 244 pages; Clean and secure in original green cloth binding with gilt lettering and gilt image of a baseball and a baseball bat at spine. Faint inscription in pencil on first blank "S.F. Sweetser / from / M. Warren" An attractive example of this scarce baseball novel. This book Double Play was Everett's second novel featuring a baseball theme (the first was Changing Base published in 1868). This book involves a game between the local Starlings baseball club and their challengers The Wide-Awakes from a nearby town. The style of their new pitcher Wheeler is much discussed and there is some play by play description of at least one of the games.

        Anthropométrie ou mesure des différentes facultés de l'homme

      Brussels & Paris: C. Muquardt; J. Bailličre, 1871. Quetelet, Lambert Adolphe Jacques (1796-1874). Anthropométrie ou mesure des différentes facultés de l'homme. 8vo. [7], 6-479pp. 2 folding lithographed plates; wood-engraved text illustrations. Brussels: C. Muquardt; Paris: J. Bailličre & Fils, 1871. 250 x 167 mm. 20th century half cloth, paste paper boards, original printed rear wrapper bound in, front hinge cracked and first signature starting. Minor foxing and toning but a good copy. First Edition, version with 1871 title-page. In this work and in his Physique sociale ou essai sur le developpement des facultés de l'homme (1869), Quetelet established the basis for mathematical study of anthropological data. "Quetelet showed that if a series of anthropological measurements of either physical or intellectual qualities were plotted on squared paper, allowing x to be the measurements and y to be their frequency, they formed a curve like that representing the expansion of the binomial, or like that formed by plotting the errors of a great number of observers [i.e., the Gaussian curve]" (Penniman, p. 105). By applying the mathematics of the Gaussian curve to anthropological data, it became possible to plot the average or "standard" deviation from the statistical average, and thus to interpret anthropological data with greater exactness.In our 1991 catalogue of the Haskell F. Norman library, we had stated that there were two Brussels editions of Quetelet's work, published by C. Muquardt in 1870 and 1871. OCLC shows both the 1870 and 1871 versions of Anthropometrie to have identical collations, and we now believe that the 1870 and 1871 versions represent different states or issues.

        NOTEBOOK OF FELICE BEATO & RAIMUND VON STILLFRIED PHOTOGRAPHS.

      [Japan, n.d. ca. 1871-1883]. Notebook mounted sepia tone photographs, two basic sizes: smallest: 108 each 8.5 x 5 cm, largest: 8 each: 14 x 12 cm., all very good, strong, clear non-faded images, first photo has small tear balance fine. This is a rare collection of Stillfried & Beato photographs. Mounted in a lined paper notebook, no covers, 17.5 x 21 cm., soiled first blank & back cover pages, contents quite clean. Each page has about 6 small images per page, and other pages have a combination of one large with about 3 smaller sized photos, [22 pages] with photos, balance are blanks. A famous photograph is found on page [15], showing four Japanese men pushing a cart ladened with several bails of rice. This is illustrated in to common reference books: Hugh Cortazzi et al: JAPAN CAUGHT IN TIME, photograph 27, attributed to Von Stillfried, in a color version. It is also illustrated in ONCE UPON A TIME, page 79 again in color, but this time with the number 563 in lower right corner, attributed to Felice Beato. Beato had been an early Yokohama photographer in Japan from 1869-1877. The great fire of 1866 had destroyed a large number of his negatives, so he spent a year working diligently to replace all he had lost. Exhausted by 1868, he began to look for other business; in 1877, he sold his stock and archives to Von Stillfried. Therefore this collection has that distinct look of Beato's works, with some likely Von Stillfried added images. The images were available for purchase by foreigners who visited Yokohama and bought some memorial photos, most of which were put into handsome lacqu- er albums. A few other foreigners who had less money to spend just bought selected photos and put them in their own albums, ergo what we have here. Old pen captions read: A memorial of a visit to Yokohama, and a tour of Japan. Entra- nce to a temple; Burial ground; Views of sacred mountain [Mt. Fuji] 9 photos; Street scent in native town; Yokohama; In the rice fields; Silk weaving room; Picking tea leaves; Views of Yokohama; School for Japanese children; Seminary for young ladies [actually a house of prostitution!]. In the interior [native street scenes]; View of Yokio [sic for Tokio]; Railway terminal; the river; Views of Yokohama:rail- way station; gentleman's house. Nagasaki: Town of Nagasaki; seaport town; in the mountains; town hall of Yokohama; Rail- way between Yokohama &c; Then the captions end. Other photos show Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni; waterfalls, leisure boats with Geisha, Kyoto pagoda; Photos of Japanese girls in elab- orate Kimono costume; A street scene with rickshaw pullers before a great merchant's business [dye shop]. More Japanese women, one in a Western dress, others in Kimono; view of a Japanese temple; Japanese coolies being served wine by two women; Women in winter Kimono and scarf; View of Yokohama city and bay from the bluff; women musicans, rickshaw puller and children; girl having her coiffeur done; Various sellers with "yoke" type carriers on their shoulder; one carries load on her head; girls with umbrella; male coiffeur, basket sellers. The great bronze Buddha at Kamakura, temple scenes, Japanse women with dolls; mother and baby; then the very famous photo of pullers of rice bails; children musicians play Shamisen, another plays the Koto. Waterfalls [Nikko], girls sleeping under Futon; Street with many rickshaws before the theatre. Children entertainers and acrobats,girls playing string games; others drink tea; another group of three sing, others play the Shamisen, another musical group play the Tsutsumi drum,Shamisen, and flute. A child studying by oil lamp. Views of Yokohama harbour and the bay with a large number of grand sized Kuro-fune or "Black ships" which were the earliest of sailing vessels to visit Japan. Most have three large sail masts. Antoher shows the quay in Yoko- hama with its stone lanterns; the last shows a very low in the water type sailing ship with center smoke stack, flying the Japanese flag. The last page shows a man with a Japanese head on a box, perhaps a magician, next to that is one show- ing two Japanese criminals with large wooden stocks on their necks, the last shows a Japanese carpenter with a hoe-like tool plaining wood. An exciting work, showing a wide variety of Japanese life, and two famous ports and their environs. People who catalogue Japanese photos do not always give credit to both Beato and Stillfried for some photographs, but rather naively cite just one photographer. Due to the nature of the transfer of the Beato business to Stillfried, there is always a question, as to which person took the photo or made a reprint of it. Nevertheless, this collection is early and quite rare ! A large number of these are not found in the reference books, perhaps they were taken prior to the fire and are thus quite early. See ONCE UPON A TIME: VISIONS OF OLD JAPAN: PHOTOGRAPHS BY FELICE BEATO AND BARON RAIMUND VON STILLFRIED for excellent background information. Beato went to Japan in 1863 where he and Charles Wirgman founded the first Egnlish-language Japanese magazine: JAPAN PUNCH, which later became the FAR EAST, enhanced with actual photographs tipped in. Beato was the first foreign person to establish a photographic business in Yokohama.

BEATO BAKUMATSU NIPPON NIHON SHASHIN SHU for other valuable photos and details. Color scans can be sent by email. .

        Unique Collection of 44 aquarelles for stained glass windows, 5 armorial blueprints, sketch and gouache, 2 original paintings, 12 documents (letters, exhibition catalogues, celebratory programs from various decorative arts associations), and 79 original silver gelatin and albumen prints from the estate of German ornamental painter and stained glass designer Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels [SIGNED]

      NP ND, Oldenburg - Unique collection of 44 fully rendered aquarelles for stained glass windows, with 21 signed or initialed by the artist and dated, 5 armorial blueprints, sketch and gouache, 2 original paintings, 12 documents (letters, exhibition catalogues, celebratory programs from various decorative arts associations), and 79 original silver gelatin and albumen prints from the lives of German ornamental painter and stained glass designer Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels (1871-1955), and his father Friedrich Wilhelm (1845-1914). Heinrich Adels' father - Friedrich Wilhelm Adels - was a renowned painter from Oldenburg where he taught art to students such as Johannes von Wicht (1888-1970) who, later on, became a successful artist in the United States. Together with Wilhelm Mohrmann (also a native of Oldenburg), Friedrich Wilhelm Adels was involved in the painted decorations of the somptuous Grand Ducal Court Theatre built by architect Gerhard Schnitger (1841-1917).His son Heinrich Adels attended the Kunstgewerbeschule (School of Arts and Crafts) in Düsseldorf where he earned high honors. Following this, he applied to study at the Royal Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin where he was accepted. Among his teachers were Otto Lessing (1846-1912), a prominent German Historicist sculptor whose work largely shaped the appearance of Berlin in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and professor Ernst Ewald* (1836-1904). Heinrich Adels won a 1st and a 2nd prize in the 1891/1892 academic year.After graduation, he settled in Munich until 1893, and came back to his beloved Oldenburg as a talented painter, graphic and stained glass artist.A preeminent member of the Oldenburger Kunstverein, Adels took part in numerous artistic projects, predominently murals and stained-glass windows for private and commercial installations.During WWI, he was wounded at the front in 1915, and returned to Oldenburg after his demobilisation. There, he resumed his artistic activities which were soon to be caught up in the turmoil of economic crisis following Germany's defeat.He remained in Oldenburg until his death in 1955, at the age of 84.Today, only a few of his spectacular stained-glass windows remain in some of the oldest houses of his native city.The Collection:1) The aquarelles:The 44 aquarelles of stained glass designs predominantly include both the fin-de-siècle and art nouveau (Jugendstil) styles, and are dated from 1905 to 1929 (mainly 1905 to 1912). They display abstract, geometric, floral, fruits, sceneries, a monumental fountain, and other patterns, including armorials with crowns, crosses, lions, eagles, swords, etc.Five of the aquarelles are mounted on heavy cardstock, and 21 are signed or initialed by the artist, and dated.Their size varies from 5 1/4 x 3 1/2" to 16 x 13".2) The armorials:A series of 3 armorial blueprints on transparent paper, one sketch in pencil, and one gouache on heavy cardstock.Two of the three blueprints are for the execution of the same coat of arms "Bulling 1321." The remaining blueprint seems to have been for the execution of the armorial handpainted in gouache.The striking 8 x 7 1/2" gouache is on a 10 1/4 x 10 1/4" heavy cardstock.The 8 1/4 x 7 1/4" original sketch in pencil is on a 13 x 9 3/4" heavy cardstock.These blueprints and gouache are attributed to Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels.3) The original paintings:- An 8 x 13 1/2" gouache on wooden board. The painting is unsigned and depicts a sad looking tree apparently long dead and weathered by the years. A few patches of green in the background are the only signs of a nature not completely dead. During our research, we have been unable to determine if this painting was executed by Heinrich Adels or his father.- A 11 1/4 X 14 3/4" oil on canvas being a close-up of a woman sleeping. Only her face, her right arm tucked behind her head, and the upper part of her chest are visible. The black, white and grey colors used for this painting create a pale luminosity and a variety of shadows suggesti [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Bancroft's Tourist's Guide, Yosemite, San Francisco and Around the Bay, (South)

      San Francisco: A.L. Bancroft & Company, 1871. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. 314 pp. Published just two years after the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, which enabled easier and faster travel westward, this pocket travel guide to Yosemite was published "for the ordinary use of the average tourist". In the Preface (dated June, 1871) they point out the merits to this more concise, economical version and go on to state "In a new and fast-growing State, like ours, where railroad companies sometimes lay nearly a league of track a day, it is simply impossible that any publication should remain perfectly accurate in every particular, even for twenty-four hours after its first issue" and offer their thanks in advance to "any traveler, railroad, stage or saddle-train agent, or hotel manager" who submits later information or corrections. Per Currey, pages [7]-71 comprise a guide to Yosemite Valley and the Calaveras, Mariposa, and "southern" giant sequoia groves; it also describes northern routes to the valley with rates for hotels, livery, and guides. The book was reissued in 1872, this is the first 1871 edition. ***DESCRIPTION: Original green cloth with a blind-stamped ruled border on both boards, gilt lettering on the front and spine, 16 mo size (approximately 6.25" tall), pagination: (1)-256, (i)-lviii (publisher's ads), with an additional ad being pasted onto the rear pastedown ("Joseph Gillott's Steel Pens of the Old Standard Quality"). ***CONDITION: Overall in very good condition, with a strong, square text block and solid hinges, the entire volume is free of prior owner markings, it is in the original binding and with all 58 pages of ads in the rear as called for by the bibliographies; a professional restorer has strengthened the binding by inserting new boards and putting the original cloth binding over them, so the binding is now strong and sturdy (name of restorer available upon request); the binding does show the original damp-stains. Note that internally the volume has old damp-staining to the flyleaves and title page, minor damp-staining to the next several pages, with a similar pattern at the rear, with the majority of the text pages being clean and bright. ***CITATION: Cowan pg. 33, Currey 5. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Art of H. Anglada-Camarasa. A Study in Modern Art. [Buch, mit zusätzlicher Originalzeichnung].

      4, 88 S. u. 48 Taf. (1 davon als Frontispiz), Priv.-Pgt. d. Zt. m. gold. Rückenpräg., Kanten tlw. etw. berieben, winziger Riss im Fusssteg des Frontispiz, vereinzelt etw. stockfl. gutes Ex. EA. 1 von 500 Ex. Auf Deckpapier des Frontispiz eine signierte Original-Bleistiftzeichnung (Hüftbild einer Frau, ein Kleinkind tragend, vor Landschaft 16 x 11 cm, unten in Tinte signiert) montiert. Mit Widmung des Künstlers auf Fusssteg des Frontispiz (Muy respetuasamente / a la Senora Dr. O. Salzmann / H. Anglada-Camarasa). - Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa (1871 in Barcelona - 17. Juli 1959 in Pollença) war ein katalanisch-spanischer Maler des Postimpressionismus und des Jugendstils. Anglada Camarasa studierte Malerei an der Escola de Belles Arts de Barcelona (Schule der Schönen Künste in Barcelona) bevor er 1894 nach Paris zog, wo er zunächst unter sehr einfachen Verhältnissen lebte, bevor seine Kunst um die Jahrhundertwende Anerkennung gewann. 1901 eröffnete Anglada Camarasa ein eigenes Atelier in Paris und lehrte später auch an der Académie Vitti. Er nahm an einer großen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil, gewann mehrere internationale Preise und erlangte vor allem in Italien Erfolg. Er war mit russischen Avantgardekünstlern wie Gorki, Meyerhold und Kandinsky befreundet. Der dekorativ-ornamentale Stil seiner Frauenporträts aus der Zeit vor 1914 weist hingegen jedoch deutliche Parallelen zu den Werken von Gustav Klimt auf. 1914 bis 1936 lebte Anglada Camarasa auf den Balearen. 1936, zu Anfang des Spanischen Bürgerkriegs, musste der bekennende Republikaner und Freimaurer ins Exil nach Südfrankreich gehen, 1948 kehrte er jedoch auf die Balearen zurück, wo er 1959 auch verstarb.

Er fuhr von Tripolis nach Benghasi, untersuchte die Ruinenstätten der Pentapolis und drang auf wenig begangenen Karawanenpfaden südwärts nach den Oasen Audjila und Djalo vor. Dann zog er am Nordrande der Libyschen Wüste hin, zunächst nach der Oase Siwah mit ihren merkwürdigen Resten antiker Bauwerke, und dann weiter nach Aegypten. Dabei stellte er als Erster das Vorhandensein eines ausgedehnten Depressionsgebietes fest, das erheblich unter den Spiegel des Mittelmeeres herabsinkt. Daneben lernte er auch die an Einfluß stetig zunehmende mohammedanische Brüderschaft der Senussi kennen, welche sich bemüht, die Welt des Islam durch Verschärfung des religiösen Fanatismus vor den Einflüssen der europäischen Cultur zu bewahren. Im Mai 1869 traf er wohlbehalten in Alexandrien ein und kehrte rasch nach Deutschland zurück" (siehe ADB 53, S. 440ff). - Einbände etwas berieben und gering bestoßen.

        After all, not to create only : recited by Walt Whitman on invitation of managers, American Institute, on opening their 40th annual exhibition, New York, noon, September 7, 1871

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. 8vo: vii,[1],[9]-24,[2]pp. Original dark green FL cloth over beveled boards, upper cover stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, plain paper end papers. (BAL notes two bindings, "no sequence established." Ours is binding B, apparently the scarcer of the two. Binding A was of flexible FL cloth (green or terra-cotta). Virtually pristine: fine, bright copy, enclosed in a purpose-made chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. BAL 21405. Wells & Goldsmith, pp. 15-16. Myerson, p. 180-182. First book edition (or second, according to Meyerson) of a poem originally published in broadside format. "This little book, reprinting Whitman's poem that was commissioned for the Managers American Institute Exhibition in New York in 1871, was printed by Roberts Brothers in Boston, and stereotyped by John Wilson and Son in an edition of 2,000 copies; at least 300 copies remained unbound as late as 1889. Whitman eventually retitled the poem "Song of the Exposition" and included it in Leaves of Grass. He issued the book in two different colored bindings, initiating a pattern he would follow with others of his last books--to give readers a choice between dark green and dark red. . . . He was proud of this little book, talking about how "wonderfully neat" it was: "How healthy the print!--the big clean type!" And he found particular significance in the cover: "This is my design--I conceived it." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) According to Myerson, in 1889 David McKay (then Whitman's publisher) took remainder sheets of the original issue and had them bound in cloth. The first issue flexible cloth binding is common; the second-issue binding in boards is scarce. N. B.

        The History of England. From the accession of James the Second.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1869–1871 - 8 volumes, octavo (170 x 115 mm). Contemporary red calf, green labels lettered in gilt to spines, gilt decorations to spines in compartments, gilt frames to covers, marbled endpapers and edges. Minor rubbing to extremities, spines uniformly a little faded, top edges dust toned, a couple of small scratches to covers, tiny abrasion to front cover of vol. VI; an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Macaulay's history. "The first historical work deliberately designed to outsell the best-selling novel of the day, Macaulay's book immediately fulfilled its author's aspiration. His colourful style and stirring power of description secured for the History a success such as no historical work in the English language had had since Gibbon. Each volume sold about one hundred and fifty thousands copies within a month of its publication, and the numerous reprints and translations into almost every literary language have perpetuated Macaulay's ideas almost to this day" (PMM 328).
