Descripción: London: John Murray, 1830-1832., 1832. 2 volumes (of 3). 8vo., (8 ¾ x 5 5/8 inches). 2 fine folding engraved maps, one with original hand color in part (a few spots, slight offsetting); half-page map showing part of Italy, half-page view of the islands of Procida and Ischia (rather browned); engraved frontispiece in volume I (a bit spotted) and aquatint frontispiece with original hand color in volume II; 42 in-text illustrations. Contemporary half tan calf, marbled boards, the spine in five compartments with four raised bands, black calf gilt lettering pieces in two, red-speckled edges (a bit scuffed, the endpapers browned). Provenance: With letter from the author to William Willoughby Cole, 3rd Earl of Enniskillen (1807-1886) tipped in before the Table of Contents in volume I; bookplates of Enniskillen to front pastedowns. First edition. A very nice copy of the CLASSIC BY THE "FATHER OF MODERN GEOLOGY," with a distinguished provenance. The title page of the first volume states "In Two Volumes"; however, by the publication of the second volume, it was clear that a third volumes was warranted: "The author has found it impossible to compress into two volumes, according to his original plan, the wide range of subjects which must be discussed it will, therefore, be necessary to extend the 'Principles of Geology' to three volumes " (Preface, volume II). The third volume, however, is lacking here. [WITH]: LYELL, Charles. Autograph Letter Signed ("Cha Lyell") to William Willoughby Cole, 3rd Earl of Enniskillen ("Lord Enniskillen"). Kinnordy, Kirriemuir, Monday, October 12, [?1835]. Lord Enniskillen was a paleontologist as well as an Irish peer and Conservative Member of Parliament. In Lyell's tipped-in letter to Enniskillen, he mentions Louis Agassiz (1807-1873), the Swiss biologist and geologist, who was traveling through the country at the time: "I have just written a longish letter to [Louis] Agassiz telling him of the magnificent moraines & glacier deposits illustrative of his theory that I have been showing to Buckland for the last two days & some remarkable features of which, would I know be worthy of Agassiz' observations & I hope will interest you." He goes on to orchestrate meetings between the three of them: "I have also suggested that if he came by Peatt to me he might perhaps pay his visit first to us, & then take Edin.r in his way south. Write to me for any instructions & I will meet you with our carriage at the last stage & perhaps be your guide still farther." "During the summer of 1830 Lyell travelled through the geologically complex Pyrenees to Spain, where the closed, repressed society both fascinated and repelled him. Returning to France, he was astonished to find King Charles X dethroned, the tricolour everywhere, and geologists able to talk only of politics. Back in London he set to work again on the Principles of Geology, finishing Volume II in December 1831 and the third and final volume in April 1833 Publication of the Principles of Geology placed him among the recognized leaders of his field, compelling him to devote more time to scientific affairs. During these years he gained the friendship of men like Darwin and the astronomer Sir John Herschel" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). "Lyell had established once and for all the uniformitarian theory of geology, which dispensed with the notion of supernatural intervention. 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.' Both Haeckel and Huxley regarded the Origin as a necessary corollary to Lyell's Principles" (PMM). It is hard to understate the importance of this work. "The appearance of Lyell's Principles was epoch-making. Since Werner, no geologist had in such a high degree influenced and re-modelled the views of geological science" (Zittell, p. 96). It "produced a greater i. Nº de ref. de la librería 72MMS141

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: John Murray, London, 1863. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Octavo (215 × 135 mm). Contemporary olive calf, spine gilt in compartments, burgundy morocco label, marbled endpapers, double-line rules to boards, turn-ins, and all edges gilt. Armorial bookplate of Baron Taunton. Calf a little spotted, minor bump to lower corner of rear board, dampstain to free endpapers and blanks, also slightly affecting preliminaries and final leaves of index, otherwise contents fresh. A very good copy, handsomely bound. Bibliography: Norman 1400. First edition of this important contribution to the debate over human evolution. Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, asserted that the earth was shaped by predictable, mechanistic forces acting over long periods of time, and inspired Charles Darwin to begin thinking of the evolution of species in similar terms. But even though "the strong uniformitarian convictions that inspired the Principles of Geology had accustomed Lyell to the concept of the antiquity of species, a combination of personal prejudice and religious belief made it impossible for him, at the time he published the Principles, to extend this concept of antiquity to humankind. It was not until 1859, after Joseph Prestwich¿s discovery of a flint artefact embedded in ancient river gravel near Abbeville, France, that Lyell began pursuing the question of human antiquity, a question that he recognized as being related to that of the origin of species. Drawing on such facts as Prestwich¿s discovery, the flints found by Boucher de Perthes, the Swiss lake dwellings, the shell mounds of Denmark and the recent find of a human skull in Neanderthal, Germany, Lyell marshalled a broad array of evidence indicating that man had evolved gradually from lower animals over an immense period of time, and gave a brief abstract of Darwin and Wallace¿s theory of the indefinite modification of species by natural selection. He thus placed himself on Darwin¿s side in the controversy over the Origin of Species, although he did not explicitly declare his own acceptance of Darwin¿s theory until a year after the present work was published. The Antiquity of Man is unusual among works of science in that it passed through multiple revised editions within the space of a year - evidence both of the work¿s popularity (a month after its publication on 6 February 1863, William Whewell wrote Lyell that ¿I am reading your book on the antiquity of man as all the world has done or is doing¿), and of Lyell¿s reactions to reviews and unpublished criticism. In May 1863, a month after the second edition had appeared, Lyell noted that nearly 5000 copies had been sold, and the demand was so great that a third edition was published in Nov 1863" (Norman 1400).

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

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: Unpublished, London, 1850. No Binding. Estado de conservación: Good. A lively autograph letter from the geologist and friend of Charles Darwin, Sir Charles Lyell giving an insight into the dramatic paraphernalia required for lecturing in Victorian London. The letter is written on a piece of laid notepaper with vertical chainlines. This has been trimmed slightly around the edges and mounted down the foreedge to an old album page; it is a little grubby. Written to a Mr Stand at an unidentified London theatre, Lyell uses both sides of the page and writes about 175 words. In the letter Lyell relates how he has been let down by 'Mr Gordon of the Princess Theatre' who has recently departed for Birmingham for a month. He mentions that Gordon had been recommended by the actor Charles Kean who was appearing in the early 1850s in a series of Shakespeare revivals at The Princess Theatre, close to Lyell's London home. Lyell says that he was told about Gordon when he 'wanted a drawing done on a large scale in scene-painting style for a lecture which I gave at the Royal Institution', praising Gordon for executing 'the task very well and expeditiously'. Lyell now finds himself without suitable assistance for his next piece of scene painting and begs his correspondent to visit him at his Harley Street home as soon as possible if he thinks he can help - or tell him if he can't. The letter is undated but Lyell continued to lecture at the Royal Institution during the period after his knighthood in 1848, with the letter presumed to come from this phase as he signs himself: 'Sir Charles Lyell, 53 Harley Street, Cavendish Square. W'. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this letter. Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. de la librería 002510

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: 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
