Autograph letter signed to "Hamilton," mentioning Charles Darwin
1880. "Mr. Darwin Will Subscribe . . ."Lubbock, John (1834-1914). Autograph letter signed to "Hamilton," mentioning Charles Darwin (1809-82). 2pp. High Elm, 21 February 1880. 180 x 113 mm. Light soiling along folds but very good.From British scientist and banker John Lubbock, who made his name in scientific circles as a Darwinian anthropologist and archeologist. He is best remembered for having introduced the terms "Paleolithic" and "Neolithic" to describe the Old and New Stone Ages; these terms first appeared in his Pre-Historic Times (1865), the most influential archeological text of the nineteenth century. Lubbock was a close friend and neighbor of Darwin, having first met Darwin while still a child; he leased and then sold to Darwin the land on which Darwin made his famous "Sand Walk." In this brief letter Lubbock states that "Mr. Darwin will subscribe to the [West Kent] election funds" ("West Kent" added in red ink in another hand) and asks that "Mr. Charlton" forward the relevant papers.
