Meisterlicher, goldgeprägter Ganzpergamentband der Zeit, über 5 durchgezogenen Pergamentheftstreifen, seitlichen Schutzkanten, handumstochenen Kapitalbändchen und allseitigem Goldschnitt.. Der Erneuerer der idealistischen Morphologie und Vertreter einer teleologischen Evolutionstheorie: Hauptwerk im Meistereinband ! Erste und einzige Ausgabe. In einem leider unsignierten meisterlichen Pergamentband der Zeit. Dieser am Rücken schlicht mit (leicht schiefer) Titelprägung in Gold, jedoch ohne Verfassernennung, die funktionalen Bünde werden durch dezente Filetenvergoldung akzentuiert, wie auch die Kapitale. Die Deckel werden durch je 15 goldgeprägte Parallel-Fileten sehr modern aufgelockert, der allseitige Goldschnitt perfekt aufgebracht und erhalten. Buntpapier-Innendeckelbezüge und fliegende Vorsätze, dem originalen Buchblock jeweils 2 weiße Büttenblätter vor- bzw. nachgebunden. Diese Arbeit wurde sicherlich von einem Verehrer und/ oder Unterstützer der Lehren Dacques in Auftrag gegeben, oder war als kostbares Geschenk für einen solchen Menschen gedacht. Der Wissenschaftler Dacque arbeitete an der Weiterentwicklung der Evolutionstheorie Darwins um die Aspekte der Metaphysik. Dazu versuchte er die Biologie und die Theologie miteinander in Einklang zu bringen, dies jedoch nicht in Form einer autoritären Religion, sondern allein durch den Hinweis auf das jeweils dem Menschen eigene Denkvermögen. Dies alles führte dazu, daß er 1925 von seiner Paläontologie-Professur an der Universität München amtsenthoben wurde, was ihn jedoch nicht daran hinderte als Privatgelehrter weiter zu forschen. "Dacque, Edgar, deutscher Paläontologe, Geologe und Naturphilosoph, *8.7.1878 Neustadt an der Wein- straße, 14.9.1945 München; ab 1915 Professor in München; arbeitete über die Darstellung fossiler, insbesondere wirbelloser Formen und die Stammesgeschichte des Menschen; Erneuerer der idealistischen Morphologie und Vertreter einer teleologischen Evolutionstheorie (der Mensch als Urform und Ziel der Evolution). Werke (Auswahl): "Grundlagen und Methoden der Paläogeographie" (1915), "Vergleichende biologische Formenkunde der fossilen niederen Tiere" (1921), "Urwelt, Sage und Menschheit" (1925), "Leben als Symbol. Metaphysik einer Entwicklungslehre" (1928), "Die Erdzeitalter" (1930), "Organische Morphologie und Paläontologie" (1935), "Das verlorene Paradies. Zur Seelengeschichte des Menschen" (1938), "Die Urgestalt" (1940). e" ex: "Lexikon der Biologie" Copyright 1999 Spektrum Akademischer Verlag, Heidelberg "... Eine erste naturwissenschaftliche Schaffensperiode wird ausschließlich von geologischen (Paläogeographie, Alpengeologie) und namentlich paläontologischen (Anpassung, Geschichte des Lebens, Artproblem, Jura- und Kreidefaunen, Schildkröten) Fragen bestimmt, und ist außerdem durch D.s akademische Lehrtätigkeit gekennzeichnet. Die zweite Periode umfaßt in stetem Wechsel einerseits natur- und religionsphilosophische Werke, andererseits paläontologisch-geologische, teils zusammenfassende und allgemein verständliche Darstellungen. - D. schreibt einen flüssigen, leicht lesbaren Stil -, teils seine reifste paläontologische Zusammenfassung ("Organische Morphologie") und vor allem seine immer wieder neu versuchten Fassungen einer Synthese von Paläontologie und Metaphysik, wobei die Deszendenz des Menschen und seine Stellung in der Natur im Vordergrund stehen. ..." ex: Quenstedt, Werner; Schröter, Manfred, "Dacque Edgar Viktor August" in: Neue Deutsche Biographie 3 (1957), S. 465-467 [Onlinefassung]: (h t t p : / / www.) * A teleological view upon the evolution, in an unsigned masterbinding. * * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.
