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

Descripción: Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. London: Murray, 1855. Second edition, in two volumes (pp. xiii, 316; viii, 272, index). Octavo (20 cm) in green publisher’s cloth, gilt titles and decorations to spine, decorations in blind. Folding colour frontispiece (Bird’s Eye View of Niagara), map of Niagara, folding view of Niagara Falls, folding Fossil Mammalian Remains (clumsily repaired); frontispiece (folding colour geological map), view of coal seams in Pennsylvania, folding view footprints of birds on Bay of Fundy. Lyell’s journal of his travels in eastern North America written for the general public, with remarks certainly on geological matters but also, for example, on the nomenclature of places-- traveling out of Albany, Lyell was bemused to find himself visiting Syracuse, Utica, Rome, and Parma; breakfasting at St. Helena and dining at Elba before returning to Albany via Troy. Traveling through the Carolinas, Lyell remarked on the condition of slaves (It didn’t seem to worry him much, as he was wont to think of them as simple and childlike), and upon reaching Philadelphia one of several periodic financial disasters caught his attention. Quite good folding colour maps and additional illustrations in the text. With the bookplate of Sidney Edward Bouverie Bouverie-Pusey (1839- 1911), author of Permanence and Evolution: an Inquiry into the supposed mutability of animal types (London, 1882) and a critic of Darwin (ODNB). Spines sun-faded to tan, minor wear to tips and peripheries, one gathering pulled; otherwise clean and bright. A very good copy. Nº de ref. de la librería 1725

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: John Murray, London, 1849. First Edition. First Edition. xii, 368; xii, 385 pp. 2 vols. 12mo. 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. Howes L 574; Sabin 42763; Clark III, 352 Original cloth, rebacked. Some rubbing to tips. A clean, tight copy xii, 368; xii, 385 pp. 2 vols. 12mo. 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

Descripción: Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. London: Murray, 1863. First edition, illustrated with woodcuts (pp. xii, 520, index, adverts). Large octavo (23 cm) in blue pebbled publisher’s cloth, gilt titles to spine, gilt and decorations in blind to covers; frontispiece and fifty-eight woodcuts in text. According to the biographical note in ODNB, “Two events in 1859 led to Lyell's last major publication, Antiquity of Man (1863). One was the research by other geologists that finally established that early human beings had lived alongside the mammoths and other extinct mammals of the glacial period. This locked the human species firmly into earth history, by extending human history far beyond the reach of textual records into a prehistory recorded only in fossil bones and stone artifacts. The other event in 1859 was Darwin's publication of his Origin of Species. Lyell reviewed the evidence for evolution quite favourably—in a section added awkwardly on to his book on prehistory—but Darwin was disappointed that his old mentor failed to announce clearly his own acceptance of the theory.” A few unsophisticated repairs to the hinges; otherwise a clean, bright copy.
