        Orígen de las especies. Por medio de la seleccion natural ò la conservacion de las razas. Favorecidas en la lucha por la existencia. Traducida con autorizacion del autor de la sexta y última edicion inglesa por Enrique Godinez.

      Madrid, Perojo, (1877). 8vo. Entirely uncut in the original green full cloth binding with gilt lettering and blindtooling to spine and front board. Gilding on spine faded. Neatly recased, preserving all of the original spine. Inner hinges re-enforced, thus a bit tight. A few underlinings in red crayon, otherwise internally very nice, clean, and fresh. Ex-libris to inside of front board. Tiny bookeller's stamp to front free end-paper (Duran Libero Madrid). VII, (1), 573 pp. + 1 folded plate (after p. 128).. The exceedingly rare first edition of the first Spanish translation of Darwin's "Origin of Species", including two letters of Darwin that are not published elsewhere (not present in any English printing nor in any of the other translations). The first Spanish "Origin" is arguably the scarcest of all the translations of the work and very few copies of it are known. A second edition appeared later the same year, also published in Madrid, but by Rojas (it has 589 pp.). A 28-page long torso of a translation, which was suspended and had no further dissemination, had appeared in a periodical in 1872. OCLC lists no copies in libraries outside of Spain and the UK. Freeman: 770. Blanco&Llorca: 34 (Blanco & Llorca: Bibliogrfía crítica illustrada de las obras de Darwin en españa, (1857-2005). "Unlike what had been the case in England, Darwin did not first become widely known in Spanish-speaking countries for the account of his travel around the world but was controversially introduced by the impact his "Origin of the Species" was having everywhere else. It is true, however, that his name was already familiar among scientists and intellectuals but it was "The Origin of the Species" and its translations that made him a household name. ... The full authorized version of "The Origin of Species" was finally translated in 1877 by Enrique Godínez. It had Darwin's endorsement and it was published with a letter from him, where he expressed being glad to have the book translated into Spanish because that would mean that it might be known not only "in the large kingdom of Spain" but also "in the widest extended regions where spanish [sic] is spoken" (Zabalbeascoa, 1968, p. 275).It took almost twenty years to have Darwin's best known work translated into Spanish while the German, French and Italian-speaking readership had had their own versions of "The Origin of Species" since 1860, 1862 and 1875 respectively (Núñez, 1969, p.27). We know it was not due to the author's unwillingness. Brisset states that after the success of "The Origin of Species" he communicated to his publisher that he wished his ideas be known abroad (2002, p. 178). This gap reveals that Spain was definitely lagging behind in spreading Darwin's ideas. We could attribute this tardiness to the "governmental and ecclesiastical pressure" that Dale J. Pratt mentions when he states that "open discussion was all but impossible" (2001, p. 26). It all changed after the Revolution of September 1868, which brought more openness to new ideas and the secularization of education.The situation in other Spanish-speaking countries was no different as regards the delay in the dissemination of Darwin's theory. Most of them were under a very strong Catholic influence and the idea of man descending from monkeys, as it was shallowly communicated, was as hard to swallow as when other visionaries had dared to say that the Earth was round or that the planets revolved around the Sun. Even today, almost 150 years after the publication of "The Origin of Species", the debate is no less controversial and very much alive when some conservative groups in certain parts of the United States aim at having the theory of evolution banished from the school curriculum to have the idea of intelligent design taught instead, as mentioned previously." (Elisa Paoletti, Translations as Shapers of Image: Don Carlos Darwin and his Voyage into Spanish on H.M.S. Beagle. In: "Érudit", Volume 18, nr. 1, 2005, pp. 55-77)

        The History of England By Hume and Smollett

      London -Virtue and Co., 1877 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An illustrated History of England with steel engravingsand colour maps. The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the end of the Reign of James II By David Hume; continued From the Reign of William and Mary tothe Death of GeorgeIIby Tobias Smollett with a continuation to the present day From the Ascension of George III to the thirty-sixth Year of the Reign of Queen Victoria Including a Narrative of the Franco-Prussian War by Dr. E. Farr and E. H. Nolan. Fifteen divisions of sixteen being four volumes bound in sixteen divisions. The History of England (1754 - 62) is David Hume's great work on England's history which was written in instalments while he was serving as librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. His Historybecame a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence he had long sought. Both the British Library and the Cambridge University Library still list him as David Hume, the historian. More a category of books than a single work, Hume's History spanned from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688 and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England until Thomas Macaulay's The History of England from the Accession of James the Second. Tobias George Smollett (1721 - 1771) was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle, which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. Smollett wrote what he regarded as his major work, A Complete History of England, from 1757 to 1765. Plates have not been bound according to binder's instructions, rather they are bound in to front of divisions. With 'Virtue and Co. ' binders label to rear pastedowns. Condition:.

The Problem with Hints for Its Solution. By Ithi Kefalende. 1851". Appendix A, pp [493] - 496, is a list of aeronautic books used by the author in preparation of the text..

Mansfield known primarily for his work as a chemist who developed a process for extracting benzol from coal-tar, thereby laying the foundation for the aniline industry, as well as his publication 'Theory of Salts', which is viewed as his most important contribution to theoretical chemistry. Mansfield's scientific orientation notable in the perspective & approach displayed in this work where he devotes much thought & consideration to motive & powered aerial navigation, as [then] current LTA efforts were subject to the whims of nature as they had been, for the most part, ever since Montgolfier. As were all his publications, this one, though written in the early 1850s, was issued posthumously, Mansfield having died prematurely, at the young age of 36, from burns suffered during a laboratory accident. The DNB describes this title of his as "one of the most striking and suggestive works on its subject." Somewhat scarce book- no copy at auction since 1990. . Illustrated with 160 [=159, as there is no Figure 50] intratextual figures, diagrams & schematics.

The first publication in English, in October 1876, was in a wrappered American edition by Frank Leslie; this U. K. edition, profusely illustrated and in a handsome pictorial binding, came out two months later (in December 1876, despite the 1877 date on the title page). It is noteworthy that MICHAEL STROGOFF is listed in this October ad catalogue -- though that does not mean that the book had necessarily been published by then.~The binding of this copy is one of two variants (priority unknown): both have the same front cover and spine pictorial panels, but the front cover of this copy includes "Jules Verne" but not "The Courier of the Czar" (while some copies show the opposite), and the spine has a variant gilt panel behind the title. The publisher's monogram blindstamp on the rear cover is also in a different style than on some copies.~This is a near-fine copy, with minor rubbing at the extremities but overall with very little wear or soil; atypically for this hefty volume, the delicate original pale yellow endpapers are not cracked. This first British edition is quite uncommon, and does not seem to turn up in any better condition. Taves & Michaluk V015; Edwards 15.

      London: Edward Stanford, April 12, 1877. . Map dimensions 73 x 106 cm, overall dimensions 75.5 x 111 cm. Large folding map of the regions from central and eastern Europe through the Caucasus and across to the eastern shores of the Caspian Sea and the northern reaches of the Persian Gulf. Original colour in block and outline. Dissected into 32 sections and mounted on linen, folds between original brown cloth covers, Stanford’s yellow printed advertisements to the inner cover and the folded end section of the map and their printed title label to the upper board. Some light wear to the covers and the title label, save for some light toning to the paper, the map in very good condition. The map illustrates the overall theatre of the Russo-Turkish War and the bordering states affected by the conflict. The prospect of Russian ascendancy in the region in the face of the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire heightened British fears and led to widespread coverage and debate on the “Eastern Question”.

In addition, this volume has the ink ownership of Mrs. Daniel Lothrop (1844-1924) on the first blank; she is best-known by her pseudonym Margaret Sidney, the author of the children's classic The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew. She was the wife of Daniel Lothrop (1831-1892), the Boston publisher, and a resident of Concord, MA, beginning in 1883. The verso of the ffep. has a full-page note by F. B. Sanborn (1831-1917), who was a school teacher in Concord, where his students included the children of Emerson, Hawthorne and Henry James, Sr.; his relationship with the Transcendentalists resulted in the publication of many books about members of that circle, including A. Bronson Alcott: His Life and Philosophy (1893), written with W. T. Harris. Sanborn has written: "This was never real Table-Talk but was made up from Mr. A's Diaries and loose Mss. ...and indicates the immensity of br A's reading, in which he went beyond Emerson...;" he continues by mentioning when and where the book was written, below which he signed his initials "F.B.S."

        THE AMERICAN SENATOR

      1877. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1877. Original pinkish-ochre cloth decorated in black. First Edition, published at the end of this novel's serialization in Temple Bar magazine.~THE AMERICAN SENATOR will be read for the sake of its opening chapters, which set before the reader in a few pages the whole geographical and social pattern of an English county; for the sake of its hunting episodes, which are among the best not only in Trollope, but in the whole of English fiction; and for the sake of Arabella Trefoil, a masterly study of a girl without a heart... [Sadleir].~The name of the American senator who comes to England with Arabella and her mother? -- Elias Gotobed.~This copy is in the primary binding of pinkish-ochre cloth decorated in black (Sadleir identifies five secondary and remainder bindings, including one three-volumes-in-one). This light cloth is extremely prone to soil, but this set has much less than usual: the spines are slightly darkened and there is just a bit of wear at a few binding extremities. The original yellow endpapers (a couple of them slightly cracked -- again, better than usual) bear a W.H. Smith booklabel and atop it the bookplate of (appropriately for a Trollope work) Arthur Palliser. In all, a very good-plus set, and quite difficult to find much better. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 46. Housed in an open-backed slipcase.
