Descripción: London John Murray, 1830. Volumes I and II only of 3, BOTH FIRST EDITIONS 1830 and 1832 (Volume III appeared in 1833). "W(illiam) L(onsdale) from the author" inscribed on half-title to Volume I and "Lieut. Lonsdale from the author" on front endpaper to Volume II (see below). 8vos, approximately 215 x 135 mm, 8½ x 5½ inches, Volume I: engraved frontispiece, 2 maps, 1 folding, 1 half page, 1 half page engraved view and 33 woodcuts in the text; Volume II: hand coloured aquatint frontispiece, folding hand coloured map, 8 woodcuts in the text, pages: Volume 1, xvi, 511 including index plus 17 page Murray catalogue dated June 1830; Volume 2, xii, 330, including index plus 16 page catalogue dated December 1831, half-title in Volume I, not called for in Volume II. Handsomely bound in modern sdark green full morocco, single gilt ruled border with inset blind stamped border, gilt raised bands to spines, 5 gilt framed compartments with gilt motif, gilt lettering, new endpapers. Frontispiece in Volume 1 lightly spotted, plate 3 with 2 images lightly browned and slighly foxed, light offsetting on page 1 from folding map in Volume II, very occasional small pale mark to margins in both volumes, otherwise very good clean tight pair. This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events -- such as Noah's flood -- shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long-acting, gradual, shaping forces. The inscription in Volume I is possibly by Charles Lyell, that in Volume II is in a different hand, believed to be that of John Murray's clerk. William Lonsdale (1794-1871) became a serious geologist and palaeontologist after a career in the army which ended in 1829. He wrote several papers on fossiles and won the Wollaston medal in 1846 for his research on the various kinds of fossil corals. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

Descripción: John Murray. London. 1835, 1835. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 4th Edition. FOURTH EDITION. Four volumes in publishers boards. 12mo. (7.7 x 4.5 inches). Illustrated with 16 plates, views and maps, 12 of them fold-out and including four that are hand coloured. The directions to the binder leaf is at the front of volume one but as the books are still in publishers boards the plates are all bound together into the relevant volumes before the text. Several small wood engravings throughout the text. A complete set with half titles in volumes 2, 3 and 4, as called for. Volume 1. - xviii, directions to binder, 406pp. Volume 2. - iv, 465pp, [1], 4pp publishers ads. Volume 3. - iv, 455pp, [1], volume 4. - iv, 456pp. Original publishers grey paper covered boards with printed paper labels. Two of the hinges are cracked but still holding. Some loss to the paper of the spines on 3 of the volumes but the four labels are generally intact and readable. A couple of areas have the paper lifting which could be easily repaired but currently the set is entirely unsophisticated, and rare thus. Small stain to the bottom of the frontis in volume one and occasional light spotting to a few leaves but overall clean and tidy throughout. Small booksellers ticket to the front pastedown of volume one. Ink name of previous owner, the travel writer and architect Charles Kelsall, dated 1836 and with his comment ("Industry and acuteness go hand in hand, throughout this instructive work") on the front pastedown endpaper and with the Ink stamp from the Kelsall library at Morden College, a charitable institution in London set up circa 1700 to house elderly single folk, on each title page and last text leaf of each volume. While this might set alarm bells ringing, it is worth noting that since Charles Kelsall bequeathed his library to Morden College in 1857 they have sold many of his books at auction to raise money, a fact they proudly state in their own literature. Overall a nice copy of this classic geological work in the original publishers binding and with some gatherings still unopened. An uncommon survivor. Nº de ref. de la librería 8850

Descripción: 1831. Lyell, Charles (1797-1875). Autograph letter signed in the third person to the Rt. Rev. Henry Phillpotts (1778-1869), Bishop of Exeter. 1 sheet. N.p., 21 March 1831. 187 x 234 mm. Lacunae in upper and lower margins where seal was removed (not affecting text), light soiling, but very good. "Mr. Lyell presents his complts. to the Bp. of Exeter & incloses Mr. Curtis’s card, who will be happy to see the Misses Phillpots & any of their friends who wish to see his entomological cabinets on any Friday between 10 & 4 o’cl. . . ." Lyell here refers to his friend John Curtis (1791-1862), author of the monumental British Entomology, Being Illustrations and Descriptions of the Genera of Insects Found in Great Britain and Ireland (1824-39). While Lyell was writing his famous Principles of Geology (1830-32), Curtis provided him with useful information on the geographical distribution of insects, and was also able to identify several genera of fossil insects found in Aix-en-Provence and Scotland. Lyell himself had a deep and abiding interest in entomology, having begun collecting insects while still a schoolboy; his biographer noted that "never, even in old age, would [Lyell] lose his delight in the beauty of rare moths and butterflies" (Wilson, p. 146). The Bishop of Exeter had an astonishing 18 children, at least some of whom apparently were interested in natural history. Nº de ref. de la librería 43052

A chronicle of the English geologist and naturalist's trip to North America on a scientific fact-finding mission in the early part of the 1840s. Lyell arrived in North America in Halifax, aboard the steamship Acadia, arriving in Halifax in late-July of 1841. His travels took him first to the Niagara region, into the New York/New Jersey area, then to Pennsylvania, Boston, and the Carolinas (end of first volume), before moving westward into Illinois and Ohio, taking the Great Lakes and up the Saint Lawrence, finishing his travels studying the geological formations of Nova Scotia. Chapters 22-25 in the second volume deal strictly with Nova Scotian geology, with Lyell giving in-depth analysis of coal formation, glacial furrows in the Bay of Fundy region, Carboniferous formations of limestone in Cape Breton and gypsum on the mainland, as well as information on other natural resources in the region. Some light wear to spine ends and extremities, occasional light foxing (particularly to verso of frontispieces and plates), bookplates to front pastedowns, else vg.

Descripción: Langlois et Leclercq, 1843 - 1848, Paris, 1843. 4 voll. in-16°, pp. (4) di catalogo editoriale, XXVI, (2), 519; XI, 575; X, 554; X, 500; legatura editoriale t. tela (i volumi sono in legature editoriali di diverso colore) con cornice ornamentale a secco ai piatti. Titolo, filetti e fregi ornamentali in oro al dorso. Sguardie gialle. Complessive 11 tavv. incise f.t. (una all'antiporta del primo vol., 3 carte di cui 2 ripiegate sempre al primo vol., 2 tavv. al secondo vol. di cui una ripiegata e 6 tavv., di cui 2 ripiegate, al terzo vol.). Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione in lingua francese dell'opera capitale della geologia ottocentesca e, forse, della geologia tout-court, i Principles of Geology (1830-'33) del Lyell ((Kinnordy, Forfarshire, 1797-Londra 1875), lavoro che contribuì in modo decisivo a chiarire i processi di formazione delle rocce metamorfiche e, al contempo, anticipatore di Charles Darwin nell'applicazione di criteri già evoluzionistici allo studio della formazione della Terra, segnando il vero punto di partenza della geologia moderna. L'opera "created an immediate sensation. . Lyell argued that the order of nature in the past was uniform with that in the present and, therefore, that the geologist should always try to explain geological phenomena by analogy with modern conditions." (DSB, VIII, 570). Scrisse Darwin, folgorato dalla lettura dei Principles: "The very first place which I examined. showed me clearly the wonderful superiority of Lyell’s manner of treating geology, compared with that of any other author, whose work I had with me or ever afterwards read.". Ward - Carozzi, Geology emerging, 1418. Cfr., sull'importanza dell'opera nella storia della scienza, Printing and the Mind of Man, 344, nota: "Lyell had established once and for all the uniformitarian theory of geology, which dispensed wth the notion of supernatural inervention. The second volume of Lyell's Book reached Darwin in Montevideo and his constant references to the enormous influence on his thinking of this great work are typified by a letter from him to Leonard Horner saying "I always feel as if my books came half out of Lyell's brain".

Descripción: Baillère et fils, 1864. Couverture rigide. Estado de conservación: Assez bon. 1ère Édition. Paris, Baillère et fils, 1864, in-8°, XVI, 558pp. - Demi-basane glacée brune, dos lisse orné de filets ; nombreuses figures in-texte et 2 hors-texte à pleine page. Coiffes, plats et coins frottés ; manque de papier sur les coupes. Reliure simple, un peu fatiguée mais bien solide. *** Rare Edition Originale de la traduction française. *** Sir Charles Lyell, géologue anglais, est l'un des premiers défenseurs, sinon le créateur de la théorie des causes actuelles, il s'efforça dans ses écrits, principalement dans ses célèbres Principles of Geology, qui soulevèrent bien des polémiques, d'expliquer tous les phénomènes géologiques du passé par ceux qui se produisent actuellement sous nos yeux ; il s'attacha plus particulièrement à décrire minutieusement les causes des oscillations du sol et il émit sur les volcans et les tremblements de terre une foule d'idées nouvelles qui rencontrèrent du reste beaucoup de contradicteurs. C'est lui également qui, le premier, vers 1828, classa les dépots tertiaires d'après la proportion des coquilles d'espèces encore existantes trouvées dans chacun d'eux ; il arriva ainsi à une division tripartite, pour laquelle il imagina les noms, généralement adoptés, d'éocène, de miocène et de pliocène. Il étudia enfin avec le plus grand soin la migration des espèces et l'origine de l'espèce et il aboutit à des conclusions qui concordent sur beaucoup de points avec les opinions de Darwin. C'est ainsi qu'après de longues recherches dans les principales cavernes de l'Europe, il assigna à la race humaine une très grande antiquité. (La grande Encyclopédie XXII, 837). - Th. Davidson, Notice sur C. Lyell. Paris 1875-76 ; Mrs Lyell, Life, letters and journal of sir Ch. Lyell. London, 1881. Nº de ref. de la librería 00731

Descripción: London: John Murray, 1863. Third edition, 8vo, xvi, 551, (1), 32 advertisement pp. 2 plates and 58 text figures, a few spots to blanks and half title, small W.H. Smith blind stamp to fly leaf. Original gilt titled blind stamped green pebbled cloth, small hole to upper joint otherwise very good. The last major work of Lyell’s life, it was affected by the publication of Darwin’s "Origin of Species" four years earlier. Lyell couldn’t bring himself to champion the new theories, and his impartial overview of the competing theories in the later chapters disappointed Darwin, although he admitted "The whole. struck me as a compilation, but of the highest quality, for when possible the facts have been verified on the spot." Bailey pp187-201. First published the same year. Nº de ref. de la librería 18557

Descripción: London: John Murray, 1849, 1849. In September of 1845 Lyell returned to America, and after a trip to Maine and the mountains of New Hampshire, travelled extensively through the South. He stayed for two weeks on a Georgia plantation on the Altamaha River, crossed that state partly by handcar in order to collect rocks and fossils in the grade cuts along the way, went to Claiborne on the Alabama River where he collected more fossils, then to Montgomery and Mobile along the Alabama, Mobile, Tombigbee, and Black Warrior Rivers. From Mobile he went up the Tombigbee River to Tuscaloosa to visit the Alabama coal field, continuing by steamboat to New Orleans, where Lyell made an expedition to the mouth of the Mississippi River to study the growth of the delta. From there he went up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers by steamboat, then overland to Philadelphia. After a quick trip to Richmond, Virginia to re- examine the coal deposits there, he sailed from Boston to Liverpool on June 1, 1846. "Lyell's description of the coastal islands of the southeastern coast, erosion, topography, and fossils in Georgia and Alabama are an important contribution-, while his detaled observations of the Mississippi Valley from the delto to the mouth of the Ohio River equal or excell the accounts of other travelers-" -- Clark First Edition. 2 vols., 12mo. xii, 368; xii, 385 pp. Original cloth, rebacked. Some rubbing to tips. A clean, tight copy. Howes L 574; Sabin 42763; Clark III, 352. Nº de ref. de la librería 38376

Descripción: [continues] with 2). On the Structure of Lavas Which Have Consolidated on Steep Slopes; With Remarks on the Mode of Origin of Mount Etna, and on the Theory of "Craters of Elevation" disbound extracts from, respectively volume for 1835 vol, 125, pp.1-38; and volume for 1858, vol 148, pp. 703-904. With a total of 5 engraved plates, (these with small and neat embossed unlinked library name), London, [The Royal Society], 1835, 1838. * Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1875), one of the greatest names in early geology, was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1826. By 1827 he had already begun to plan his chief work, The Principles of Geology. The subsidiary title, "An Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface by Reference to Causes now in Operation," gives the keynote of the task to which Lyell devoted his life. The first volume of the Principles of Geology appeared in 1830, and the second in January 1832. Received at first with some opposition, so far as its leading theory was concerned, the work had ultimately a great success, and the two volumes had already reached a second edition in 1833 when the third, dealing with the successive formations of the earth's crust, was added. Between 1830 and 1872 eleven editions of this work were published, each so much enriched with new material and the results of riper thought as to form a complete history of the progress of geology during that interval. The Antiquity of Man, appeared in 1863, and ran through three editions in one year. In this he gave a general survey of the arguments for man's early appearance on the earth, derived from the discoveries of flint implements in post-Pliocene strata in the Somme valley and elsewhere; he discussed also the deposits of the Glacial epoch, and in the same volume he first gave in his adhesion to Darwin's theory of the origin of species. In 1834 he made an excursion to Denmark and Sweden, the result of which was his Bakerian lecture to the Royal Society "On the Proofs of the gradual Rising of Land in certain Parts of Sweden.".
