Descripción: Paris, Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, 1802-1897. 4to. 2,048 copper engravings and lithographed plates of which many double-sized or larger, and/or hand-coloured or in chromolithography, and seven portraits. Contemporary uniform marbled boards with morocco labels on the spines in different colours for the different series; original printed wrappers of several issues bound in (Annales, Mémoires, Nouvelle Annales), and near contemporary uniform cloth bindings with red morocco labels (Archives and Nouvelles Archives, first series), and original printed wrappers (last two series of the Nouvelles Archives). l Very rare set, seldom seen complete, of the most important scientific natural history journal published in France during the 19th century. There are in total 84 volumes in 4to with over 2,000 engraved and lithographed plates, of which over 250 are hand-coloured or in chromolithography. This work contains the contributions of all the famous French naturalists of the 19th century, in many cases the first publication(s) of these authors, or at least in their first editions, and often their most important research and results. In the Annales, for instance, Cuvier published his important series on molluscan anatomy, while his rival Lamarck contributed with his monograph of the fossil shells of the Paris Basin. Ornithology is well-represented. For instance: De Blainville "Le Dodo, autrement Dronte (Didus ineptus L.)" with four lithographed plates one being a beautiful hand-coloured head of the dodo by G. de Bièrre. Another important "first" is Geoffroy St-Hilaire's "Descriptions des Mammifères nouveaux ou imparfaitement connus: famille des Singes" with eight lithographed plates of which two are coloured, one of which is the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes L.) and appears to be the first monograph, antedating that of Owen by seven years. A herpetological treasure is De Blainville's "Description de quelques espèces de reptiles de la Californie". Throughout all series there is also much on entomology, and more on conchology/malacology, including palaeontology, ichthyology and studies on crustaceans. Authors included are Cuvier, Valenciennes, Audouin, Lamarck, Becquerel, H. and A. Milne-Edwards, Brongniart, Jussieu, Tulasne, De Serres, Duméril, Thouin, Deleuze, Fourcroy, Vauquelin a.o. Among the entomological titles we find, e.g., the following works by Lyonet: "Anatomie de différentes especes d'insectes" (a long series, with plates by W. de Haan), Lacordaire's "Essai sur les coléoptères de la Guyane Française", an illustrated paper by Boisduval on Macrolepidoptera from Madagascar, Mauritius and Réunion, inaptly titled "Considérations générales"; Audouin and Brullé's "Description des espèces nouvelles ou peu connues de la famille des cicindelètes", with nice large hand-coloured plates, Raffray's "Coléoptères de la famille des paussides"; Paul Gervais' paper titled "remarques sur la famille des scorpions et description de plusiers espèces nouvelles de la collection du Muséum", and more. Père David, first westerner to see the deer named after him and the giant panda, published his travel diaries in the Nouvelles Archives, with many zoological observations, and this came with a string of papers by Vaillant, Sauvage, Heude, and others on the specimens of birds, fish, molluscs and other animals he collected. Over the years many papers included in this series have been sold separately for considerable prices. In all it can be stated that these publications by the natural history museum of Paris do not only contain a great deal of zoological, palaeontological, geological and (bio)chemical observations and discoveries, but also provided a platform for many new ideas and concepts about how the natural world is organized and how it is developing. Some rubbing to boards, and especially to spine ends. Ten parts of the Nouvelles Archives with renewed spine, a few text parts with brittle edges (and, however, very wide margins), a few text sections and plate. Nº de ref. de la librería 32511

Descripción: Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 13). Royal-8vo. With 902 (5 in coloured copies) fine handcoloured engraved plates. Later speckled calf with 2 red gilt lettered labels. One of the most desirable works on shells. It was published over a period of almost half a century and especially the last 27 parts published by P. Fischer from 1873-1879 are rare. In the monograph on the Turbo by Fischer published in 1873 the text (128 pages) is in a recent reprint as well as plates 37-42. The 11 page text of the genus Phasianella is also in a reprint. Some plates of the genus Turbo have been trimmed with some slight loss of the illustration. A few plates have the upper right corner very slightly chipped.Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Spécies .' This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned.Provenance: With the occasional stamp of Richard I. Johnson.Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978. Nº de ref. de la librería 7475

Descripción: Paris Garnery An XI, 1802. First edition. Large paper copy. Folio (52.5 x 35cm). Half-title. 50 engraved plates by Plee, Tardieu, and others after Redoute, some variable spotting throughout. Contemporary French half red morocco, scarlet paper boards, gilt, a very handsome copy. A beautifully bound copy with illustrious provenance, illustrated by Redouté at the same time as he was illustrating Les Liliacées. Astragalus is a large genus of herbs and small shrubs, belonging to the legume family Fabaceae and the subfamily Faboideae. Common names include milkvetch, locoweed (in North America), and goat's-thorn. It is a food for some butterfly larvae and is also used in traditional Chinese and Persian medicine. Augustin Pyramus de Candolle, botanist and pioneer agronomist, was born at Geneva, in 1778. In 1796, the geologist, Déodat de Dolomieu, invited him to come to Paris to study both medicine and natural history. He attended the lectures of many of the famous scientists of the day, and was closely acquainted with Cuvier, Lamarck, Desfontaines, and Delessert. Candolle returned to Geneva in 1797, but was back in Paris a year later and remained there until 1808.T he years Candolle spent in Paris were remarkably productive, and by the time he was in his early twenties, he was recognized as an important member of the botanical circle. His first major publication was Plantarum historia succulentarum (1799-1802), issued in twenty sections with eight more added in 1803. This was followed by Astragalogia. "The first monographic study of the genus was done by the naturalist Simon P. Pallas, in the Species Astragalorum (1800), who traveled extensively across the Russian empire in central Asia. Almost simultaneously, De Candolle published this work in which he divided the Linnaean Astragalus into three genera: Astragalus, with obtuse keel (petal) and pod fully or semi-bilocular by inflexion of dorsal suture; Phaca, with obtuse keel and unilocular pod; and Oxytropis, with appendaged keel and semi- to fully bilocular pod by inversion of the ventral suture" (Barneby). Redoutéana, 9; Nissen 319; Dunthorne 242. Barneby = Summarized, in part, from Barneby's (1964; pp. 1-8) "A Short History of the Genus.". Nº de ref. de la librería 90237

Descripción: 1916. Couverture rigide. Estado de conservación: Satisfaisant. Edition originale. Album de guerre constitué par Mademoiselle Patricia Beauchamp Waddell qui a servi en 1915-1916 dans la région de Calais au sein d’une organisation Britannique le « First Aid Nursing Yeomanry Corps » [F.A.N.Y.] (détachement de volontaires féminines pour l’organisation des premiers secours). L‘album a été constitué par Miss Patricia Beauchamp Waddell au cours de la période 1914 date à laquelle elle rejoint les F.A.N.Y. jusqu’à 1916. In-4 oblong, 255 x 305, de 184 pages, la plupart des pages de papier fort noir, certaines montées de papier gris foncé, pages sur lesquelles ont été contrecollés : 277 photographies originales (dont 27 de format in-8 ou grand in-8, 6 de celles-ci étant signées « Alfieri », 51 de format in-12 et 202 de format in-16, in-18 ou in-24). La plupart avec légende(s) manuscrite(s). 12 documents originaux, dont une lettre autographe, datée et signée du lieutenant Grace Ashley Smith, une plaquette de présentation du F.A.N.Y. imprimée, un laissez passer officiel etc. 63 coupures de presse ou ensembles de coupures de presse, dont un certain nombre de photographies légendées. Sont encartés: (2) feuillets et un document imprimé de format petit 1-12 [(4) pages]. Nous tenons à disposition un dossier avec de plus nombreux exemples de photographies et documents. Reliure d’origine à la Bradel, réalisée par l’éditeur de l’album, recouverte de toile encollée de couleur bleu de Seine, au pied du plat supérieur mention dorée « Album ». Ensemble unique, d’un grand intérêt documentaire. Les grandes photographies sont pour la plupart d’un très beau tirage, contrasté, généralement en noir, parfois en Sépia, et dans un très bel état de conservation. Elles sont généralement légendées en regard par Miss Patricia Beauchamp Waddell, avec situation géographique, nom des personnes photographiées etc. La reliure de l’album qui « a fait la guerre » est usagée (dos manquant, coins usés, cahiers en partie décousus) ; l’intérieur malgré d’inévitables traces d’usage, sans gravité, est resté frais. Le recueil illustre les souvenirs de Patricia Beauchamp Waddell (1892-1972), tels qu’elle les raconte dans son livre « Fanny goes to war » publié en 1919 par John Murray (London). L’album que nous proposons, dont la chronologie est synchrone de celle du livre, retrace les deux premières années de l’engagement du F.A.N.Y. dans la guerre. P-B Waddell incorpore les F.A.N.Y pour un camp d’entrainement en Juillet 1914 à Pirbright, dans un centre sous commandement militaire, mais elle ne peut rejoindre le détachement basé à l’Hôpital Lamarck à Calais qu’en janvier 1915 où elle contribue aux soins et à la logistique. Le détachement de F.A.N.Y. basé à Calais eut un rayon d’action relativement important, du nord de la France au sud de la Belgique [cf photographies originales prises à Boulogne, Calais, Dunkerque, Dixmude, Ypres, etc.]. En 1916, après avoir pris des cours de conduite et de mécanique pendant une permission, elle travaille comme conductrice d’ambulance pour la Croix-Rouge Britannique [« Cumberland lady motorist at the front »]. L’album s’arrête au moment où Miss Patricia Beauchamp Waddell, blessée, fut amputée puis rapatriée après avoir reçu la croix de guerre de la main du Général Ditte (Mai 1916). Miss Patricia Beauchamp Waddell semble avoir été « correspondante de guerre » de plusieurs journaux, essentiellement Britanniques (cf coupures de presse reproduisant ses textes et des photographies dont les originaux figurent parfois dans l’album).

Descripción: Oeuvre exceptionnelle du début - XIXe siècle, du Naturaliste et Artiste Jean Henri Jaume Saint-Hilaire, né dans notre région de Provence à Grasse en 1772, mort à Paris en 1845. /// Chez l'auteur à Paris, 1808-1822. 10 volumes in-4 (275 x 185 mm) reliure demi-maroquin vert impérial à petits coins, plats cartonnés vert-bouteille, dos lisse avec titres dorés et tomaison, 10 gravures de botanistes en frontispice gravés par Langlumé, illustrés de 998 planches lithographiées en couleurs sous serpentes ( conformes à celles répertoriées dans la table alphabétique du dernier volume), chaque planche étant accompagnée d'une fiche descriptive (nom, famille, système sexuel, description détaillée, habitat, dénomination, explications), bon état de fraicheur même si les pages de texte ont parfois quelques petites rousseurs, rarement une auréole pâle dans la marge, reliures solides et homogènes. Ensemble exceptionnel et complet de l'oeuvre remarquable de ce botaniste né à Grasse en Provence, qui apprit la peinture florale auprès de Gérard van Spaendonck : Le millier de planches déroule un tableau de la Nature éclatant de force et de couleurs, les dessins de Jaume Saint-Hilaire ayant une densité dans les formes qui donne aux plantes et aux fleurs une présence parfois surnaturelle, appréciable dans ce grand format des illustrations. La jolie préface de l'auteur en dit tout l'esprit : "L'homme qui étudie avec attention cette immense quantité de végétaux, qui observe la finesse et la simplicité de leurs organes, l'élégance et la variété de leurs formes, la vivacité de leurs couleurs, se trouve pénétré d'admiration. Il semble que les exhalaisons balsamiques des prairies, ou le silence des forêts antiques, en communiquant à nos sens un doux frémissement, changent nos peines en une tendre mélancolie." Très rare édition originale complète, dont tous les volumes ont été collationnés. Après une brillante carrière militaire, il vint dans la capitale où il se livra avec ardeur à l'étude de la botanique. Il suivit alors les cours de Daubenton, Jussieu, Lamarck et Desfontaines, et devint ainsi l'un des meilleurs botanistes de son temps. On lui doit l'introduction en France du "Polygonum tinctorium", célèbre plante colorante produisant un superbe bleu indigo. Il développa également ses talents de dessinateur et de peintre de fleurs avec Lebreton, mais surtout avec Van Spaendonck.Cet ouvrage est un bel exemple de la richesse que peut offrir un livre imprimé : un texte d'érudition, une magnifique série de planches peintes, une qualité d'impression, un ensemble relié pour la bonne préservation de l'oeuvre.

Descripción: Philadelphia: J. Dobson, ., 1836. [2],iv,110 (of 118) pp. plus sixty (of sixty- five) colored plates. 19th- century three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Binding slightly edgeworn and darkened. Small ownership stamp on titlepage and an occasional very light fox mark, else internally very clean. Very good. A mostly complete copy of this extremely rare and attractive color plate book on fresh water bivalves. Timothy Abbott Conrad was an early and important American naturalist whose reputation is now mostly lost to history. His work is an important complement to Thomas Say's AMERICAN CONCHOLOGY, and Conrad assisted Say's widow in completing the final part of that work, which was unfinished at the time of Thomas Say's death. The very lovely plates in this work, done after Conrad's own drawings, were lithographed by P.S. Duval, one of the leading illustrators of Philadelphia, and are quite handsomely drawn and shaded. Most every plate contains several colored illustrations of shells. Conrad's text gives the scientific details of the shells, as well as his personal observations and comparisons with Say's findings. This work was originally issued in thirteen parts between 1836 and 1840, but is most often found in single- volume form. Each part contains five plates. The present copy, then, contains twelve of the thirteen parts, lacking only the final five plates and accompanying text. "A book of both scientific and artistic merit" - Bennett. Extremely rare on the market, the first copy we have ever seen offered for sale. BENNETT, p.26. McGRATH, pp.36, 39. NISSEN (ZOOLOGY) 944. SABIN 15903. Nº de ref. de la librería WRCAM 37816

Descripción: Deterville, Paris, 1817. Four volumes, octavo, 15 engraved plates by C.-L. Laurillard (some foxing to the plates); a handsome set, with all four half-titles, in contemporary quarter calf over mottled papered boards, gilt, double spine labels in red & green. Cuvier's great study of the animal kingdom, including Australian insects from the Baudin voyage. First edition of this germinal work of natural history, with three volumes by Cuvier himself, and the fourth an important study of insects by his friend and colleague Latreille.Recognised as the father of comparative anatomy, Cuvier published widely throughout his lifetime, but this was his most famous and influential work, and contained the results of all his previous research on the structures of living and fossil animals. It was based upon his vast knowledge of zoological anatomies, and in it he applied Linnæus' system of nomenclature and classification to the whole animal kingdom, in the process establishing his four great classes: vertebrate, molluscous, articulate, and radiated.Cuvier's work is a benchmark for many reasons, not least for the third volume present here, which is actually the work of Pierre André Latreille, Professor of Entomology at the Paris Museum: Latreille's contribution was not only a significant contribution to his field, but he had earlier been heavily involved in characterising the insects collected on the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific. In the present volume, Latreille sought to update the foundation work of scholars including Fabricius within Cuvier's framework; as a result, Latreille included here many Australian insects including two, the 'Rhipcera' and the 'Heleus', noted for the first time.Cuvier, born in 1769, was invited by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire to come to Paris in 1795. He took an appointment at the newly-formed Muséum nationale d'histoire naturelle, where he remained until his death from cholera in 1832. He had first publicly canvassed his new quadripartite schema of the animal kingdom in an 1812 presentation to the Academy of Sciences, but it was in this work that he first detailed how this proposed division worked in practice. Here, each of the classes is discussed in a separate volume, with volumes I, II and IV by Cuvier himself; his organizations of fish families in particular 'were so soundly based that they have become orders or suborders in present classification' (DSB).Throughout his career, Cuvier held to the premise of Le Règne Animal that the four branches were fundamentally different, and that any similarities between them were due entirely to common functions rather than common ancestry. He did not believe, that is, that there was any evolutionary adaptation, a stance which put him in open conflict with his contemporaries such as Buffon, Lamarck, and Geoffroy. This led to the famous debate between Cuvier and Geoffroy at the Académie Royale des Sciences in Paris in 1830.Cuvier's towering position in the French natural sciences should be seen in the context of a very cynical view of his ambitions towards intellectual ownership of the science on Freycinet's voyage, an idea explored in correspondence between Faujas de Saint Fond and Louis de Freycinet.

Descripción: Paris, Maradan, an II (1794). 1794, 1794. 8 vol. de texte in-8° et 1 atlas in-4° composé d' 1 grande carte repliée et 123 planches sur 108 feuilles, simples ou repliées, représentant des cartes, plans, vues, costumes, plantes, oiseaux, etc. Pleine basane fauve racinée d'époque, dos lisses ornés de fleurons, piéces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge.(coiffes et coins discrètement restaurés, trace de mouillure au 1er cahier du vol 1). Seconde édition de la traduction française par Gautier de la Peyronnie (EO en allemand: 1771-1776). Envoyé à l'origine en mission par l'Académie de Saint-Pétersbourg pour observer le passage de la planète Vénus devant le disque du Soleil, le naturaliste allemand Pallas [1741-1811] a passé six années à sillonner l'immensité russe, jusqu'à ses confins. Il explore le cours du Iaïk, les bords de la mer Caspienne, l'Altaï, les alentours du lac Baïkal jusqu'à la frontière chinoise, le Caucase et différentes parties de la Russie méridionale. Naturaliste polygraphe, ses journaux de voyages sont axés sur les sciences naturelles, sans pourtant que n'échappe au lecteur le moindre incident de parcours. Son récit ouvrit la Russie au reste du monde et servit de modèle à la littérature de voyage du XVIIIème siècle. Les remarquables planches dues à P.f. TARDIEU et N. THOMAS sont consacrées à l’ethnographie (scènes, costumes ), à la géographie, aux paysages, à la flore et la faune. L’intérêt de cette seconde édition française est de renfermer les additions de plusieurs scientifiques, dont Lamarck pour la botanique et Langles pour la linguistique. Bel exemplaire. 8 text vols. 8vo, 1 atlas vol. 4to. 1 folding map and 123 plates on 108 ll. (maps, plans, views, costumes, etc.). Contemporary full sheep. Second French edition, enhanced by Lamarck and Langles, of Pallas' popular account of his travels through Russia and Central Asia (OE, in German, 1771-76, Saint-Petersburg, first French edition 1788-93). Peter Simon Pallas (1741-1811), German scientist, was a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences who explored, on request of the Russian government, some provinces of the Russian Empire. The account of these travels opened up Russia to the West and was a model for 18th-century travel literature. The plates (97, 25 folding or on double-page), engraved by Thomas, depict native inhabitants and their dwellings, views, and examples of the flora and fauna encountered. The maps are engraved by Tardieu. This second French edition was expanded with notes by specialists such as Lamarck on botany and Langles on the eastern languages. Fine copy. Nissen Zool. 3076.

(Total de 28 planches gravées, 1 portrait en frontispice). Demi-basane d’époque à coins de parchemin, dos lisses ornés, pièces de tomaison de maroquin vert, plats recouverts de papier marbré rose, tranches jaspées bleues. (Quelques feuillets roussis et taches, petite déchirure sur l’une des planches, quelques planches rognées un peu court). Exceptionnel ouvrage, l’une des premières sources sur le Japon. Carl-Peter Thunberg (1743-1828) est un naturaliste, botaniste et explorateur suédois, l’un des plus connus des étudiants de Linneaus. Cet ouvrage est le résultat de son séjour de quinze mois au Japon et des observations qu’il y réalisa. Il résidait au comptoir hollandais de Deshima, dans le port de Nagasaki en qualité de chirurgien attaché à la Compagnie des Indes Orientales. A son retour en Suède, grâce au succès de cet ouvrage il succède à Linneaus au poste de professeur de l’Université d’Uppsala, charge qu’il exerça de 1784 jusqu’à sa mort. Il était un observateur précis à la méthodologie rigoureuse. La présente édition est augmentée de la partie de l’ouvrage de Thunberg consacrée au Japon : Resauti Europa, Africa, Asia, Forattad Aeren 1770-79. Thunberg quitte la Suède en 1771, s’engageant comme médecin à bord d’un navire de la Compagnie hollandaise des Indes orientales. Il fait une escale de trois ans au Cap dans la colonie hollandaise pour se familiariser suffisamment avec la langue pour se faire passer pour un Hollandais au Japon, puisqu’ils étaient les seuls étrangers à pouvoir y entrer. Durant ce séjour africain, il fait plusieurs expéditions à l'intérieur des terres, afin de collecter des spécimens de plantes et d'animaux. Le premier volume est consacré à cette étape du voyage et comprend les observations botaniques et zoologiques sur les Hottentots. Le deuxième volume contient la suite du voyage le long de la côte Est de l’Afrique, et les étapes à Java, Batavia, l’arrivée au Japon et à Nagasaki. En août 1775, Thunberg arrive à la manufacture hollandaise de la Compagnie hollandaise des Indes orientales sur la minuscule île artificielle de Dejima (120 sur 75 m.) dans la baie de Nagasaki, relié à la terre par un terre-plein. Il y travailla comme chirurgien (1775-1776). Les possibilités de quitter l’île étaient rares, mais il parvint néanmoins à conduire quelques recherches botaniques. Afin d'obtenir plus de spécimens, il négocia auprès de ses interprètes, l'échange de connaissances de la médecine occidentale contre de nouveaux spécimens végétaux. En 1776, il accompagna le directeur de la colonie hollandaise lors d'une visite au shogun à Edo (Tokyo) et il profita de ce long périple, pour herboriser de nombreuses plantes.

Descripción: Paris, Hôtel de Thou, 1790-1791. 5 volumes of text & 1 atlas. 4to. pp. lxxxiii, 620; 784; 858; 752; 328, clxiii, with 7 (4 large folding) engraved maps, and 81 (19 double-page) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines with red and green gilt-lettered labels. An attractive uniformly bound copy of the first French edition in 4to, of one of the most splendid narratives in the literature of African exploration. "Bruce's most notable journey began in Alexandria in June 1768. He travelled extensively in Ethiopia and claimed to have been the first European to find the source of the Nile (on 4 November 1770), he did know that the Portuguese Jesuit missionary Piedro Páes had been there more than a century earlier. Bruce actually had found the source of the Blue Nile, the main tributary of the White Nile, which it joins below Khartoum. He knew of the White Nile, although he denied that it was the major branch. James Bruce was justly considered an explorer rather than an adventurer because of his scientific approach. Before setting out, he learned as much as was known about the geography, customs, and languages of the area. Bruce brought back drawings of buildings, fauna, and flora, collected seeds; and kept precise meteorological and astronomical records. His writings are generally accurate. (DSB). The first French edition was published in 8vo and 4to.About half the plates show plants, the specimens collected went to Sir Joseph Banks and Lamarck, the other plates show a.o. birds, reptiles, mammals, and people. Bruce manuscripts are at the Royal Society, London. With the bookplate of Philippe de Vilmorin.Brunet p. 1283; Cox p. 389. Nº de ref. de la librería 5752

Descripción: Hard cover. One engraved plate & one folding printed table. xvi, 375 pp.; 2 p.l., 412 pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. half-calf & marbled boards, spines gilt, red & orange leather lettering pieces on spines. Paris: Maradan, Seconde Année de la République [1794].First edition of the author’s first book on chemistry. Lamarck (1744-1829), the noted biologist and evolutionist, had pronounced chemical theories and they were an important part of his ideas about nature and evolution. He was an adversary of Lavoisier’s anti-phlogistic theory and proposed the four-element theory (earth, air, water, and fire). Lamarck believed that these four elements "have no attraction for one another but tend to separate unless constrained by force He proposed a new ‘pyrotic theory’."–Partington, III, p. 490. Lamarck attempted to account for a great number of chemical and physical phenomena such as sound, electricity, magnetism, color, and vaporization with his system. "In this work Lamarck sets forth his views on the immutability of species and attacks the theory of the spontaneous origin of life. The book is interesting in the history of chemistry, because Lamarck attacks Lavoisier’s anti-phlogistic theory."–Duveen, p. 334. An uncommonly attractive set. ? Cole 739.

RARE. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST FULL-LENGTH EXPOSITION OF LAMARCK'S THEORY OF EVOLUTION. In this expanded presentation of his theory, first enunciated two years earlier in the Systeme des animaux sans vertebres, Lamarck attempted to explain the reasons for and modus operandi of the evolution of animal and plant species. "Lamarck believed that changes in species occurred over time as the result of two factors: first, a natural tendency in the organic realms towards increasing complexity, as a means of explaining the hierarchical groupings of the major groupings. of animals and plants; and second, the influence of the environment as the factor responsible for all deviations from this norm" (Norman). "Lamarck's conception of a natural tendency toward increasing complexity [in living organisms] provided a perfect complement to his views of the mineral kingdom with the opposite natural tendency. In both cases a long time span allowed nature to do her work and local circumstances explained irregularities. Among living beings, irregularities included all organisms below the level of the masses; which usually meant classes but sometimes was extended to orders and families, never to genera and species" (DSB). This work contains two of Lamarck's most famous hypotheses: "spontaneous generation, as a means of generating the simplest life forms; and the development, through repeated use, of new and heritable organs, as a means of producing more complex species" (Norman).

Descripción: chez l'Auteur and Deterville, Paris, 1801. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (204x129 mm), viii, 432 pp. including half-title (reinforced at joint), 8 letterpress tables (6 folding). Near contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered label. Internally little occasional spotting, otherwise bright and clean. Provenance: J. d'Aguilar (ex libris to inner cover). ---- Dibner 194; Garrison-Morton 215.5; Sparrow 122; Norman 1262. - First edition, first state (without leaf 402bis of "second edition") of Lamarck's first published statement of his theory of evolution, the inheritance of acquired characteristics. Lamarck's first public presentation of his theory of evolution was in his opening discourse for his course on invertebrates at the museum in 1800; it was published the following year at the beginning of his Système des animaux sans vertèbres. The evolutionary views sketched in the discourse leave much to be desired in terms of organization and explanation. They are, however, very much a part of a total view of nature, many aspects of which Lamarck had long accepted. In the two branches of living organisms, Lamarck pointed out the 'degradations' in structural organization of the larger classificatory groupings or 'masses' as one moved down the series from the most complex to the simplest. Nature, after having formed the simplest animals and plants directly, produced all others from them with the aid of time and circumstance. In 1800 Lamarck did not explain how spontaneous generation occurred or how unlimited time and varied circumstances produced all other organisms. He did suggest that, for animals, changing circumstances and physical needs led to new responses which eventually produced new habits; these habits tended to strengthen certain parts or organs through use. Gradually new organs or parts would be formed as acquired modifications were passed on through 'reproduction' (DSB). - Lamarck had first presented his theory of 'evolution' (a term not yet used in this context) in the opening discourse of his course on invertebrates at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1800. First printed in the present work, the 48-page Discours d'ouverture contains Lamarck's first statement of his theory of the inheritance of acquired characteristics, and of his idea of the progressive process of species differentiation, from the simplest to the most complex. The Systeme represented a definite advance in zoological classification. In it Lamarck 'separated spiders and crustaceans from insects, and classified worms into truer categories than had Linné. He separated animals into vertebrates and invertebrates, introducing the latter term' (Dibner). Nº de ref. de la librería 001943

Title page and half title, 146 pp., 75 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [10 pp., 2 plates (cassidaire); 40 pp., 16 plates (casque); 16 pp., 5 plates (tonne); 12 pp., 6 plates (harpe); 151 pp., 46 plates (pourpre)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin.figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ‘Spécies’. This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers several groups with generally large, and colourful species. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, in particular that of pyrule, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65 (dates of publication); Nissen ZBI, 2183. Nº de ref. de la librería 67776

Descripción: J.J. Beets, Haarlem:, 1814. hardcover. . PIONEER OF CELLULAR BOTANY. This is the author’s prize-winning essay for the Teylerian Society in Haarlem in 1812. The work is both a review of earlier botanical literature, but it also puts forth an early form of cell theory. " Dietrich Georg Kieser (who published after the award of the Gottingen prize), is of interest for three reasons: first, because although he was a German and a professor at Jena, the definitive statement of his position, the Mémoire sur l’Organisation des Plantes was written in French; second, because he wrote a widely read textbook, in German, in 1815, the Elemente der Phytotomie, and third, because he is mentioned by Dumortier, the discoverer of binary fission, as one of the principal proponents of the view that cells arise from subcellular granules. The Mémoire sur l’Organisation des Plantes was submitted as a prize essay for a competition organized by the Teylerian Society on the subject of plant fine structure, and especially on the tubes and vessels to be found in plants. Kieser’s essay won the prize and became very well known. It begins with a detailed review of the work of [Robert Hook, Marcello Malpighi, Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), Leeuwenhoek, Henri-Louis Du Hamel du Monceau, Sir John Hill, Martin Van Marum, Mustel, Johann Hedwig, Jean Senebier, Christian Sprengel, Ludolph Christian Treviranus, Heinrich Friedrich Link (1767-1850), Karl Asmund Rudolphi (1771-1832) (the "father of helminthology") and Mirbel], and it is, in this respect, one of the most useful of nineteenth century compendiums of botanical history. As for Kieser’s own ideas on the organization of plants, he takes the view that ‘Les plantes sont composées en grande partie de cellules, qui forment un tissue cellulaire.’ (‘Plants are composed in large part [that is, not entirely] of cells, which form a cellular tissue.’) He believed that these cells arose from an infinity of tiny, transparent globules to be found in the sap. These globules were through to enlarge, cohere and, as a result of external pressures, assume their final shape. He regarded the cells of lower plants, which retailed their ellipsoidal shape, as the most primitive forms. In higher plants, however, the cells were forced by reciprocal pressures into a shape that he now defined more specifically as a dodecahedral rhombus. There pressures were said to obey strict mathematical laws, but how the forces were exerted and what mathematical laws they obeyed are not stated [referring to his later work, Elemente der Phytotomie] " Henry Harris, The Birth of the Cell, 2000, - page 45. Stevens cites Kieser’s work as a model of the post-Linnean treatises that sought to organize and categorize major fields of the natural sciences. "The various shades of meaning it encompassed prefigure many of the questions — evolutionary, genetic, developmental, mechanistic, functional, anatomical, and physiological – that would be addressed in biology later in the nineteenth century." Kierser links Lamarck and Treviranus to using terms that organize biology, as with Kieser, but they also do not address "organization" specifically. Dieterich Georg KIESER (also Dietrich Georg von Kieser, 1779 - 1862), born in Harburg, Germany, studied medicine at the Universities of Würzburg and Göttingen, receiving his doctorate in 1801. He was appointed director of a Jena mental hospital in 1816. The following year he began teaching psychiatry at the university and opened a private sanatorium. For most of his career he was a professor at the University of Jena, where from 1824 to 1862. Kieser was also a learned scholar of natural sciences. While working as a professor at the University of Jena, Kieser operated a private ophthalmology clinic from 1831 to 1847, and from 1847 until 1858 he was director of the Grand Ducal Mental Hospital. He was an advocate of balneology, and beginning in 1813 was a physician at the therapeutic spas at Heilbad Berka. With Adam von Eschenmayer (1768-1852) he published the 12-vol.

His works influenced the next two generations of Naturalists, including Jean Baptiste Lamarck and George Cuvier. Buffon published thirty-six quarto volumes of his Histoire naturelle during his lifetime; with additional volumes based on his notes and further research being published in the two decades following his death. It has been said that "Truly, Buffon was the father of all thought in natural history in the second half of the 18th century". Buffon held the position of intendant (director) at the Jardin du Roi, now called the Jardin des Plantes;- it is the French equivalent of Kew Gardens. William Smellie (1740–1795) was a Scottish Master Printer, Naturalist, Antiquary, editor and Encyclopedist. He was friends with Robert Burns, whose assessment is engraved on Smellie's tombstone: "Here lies a man who did honour to human nature". Burns also described him fondly in a letter as "that old Veteran in Genius, Wit and Bawdry". Smellie is also noted for his English translation of the famous Histoire Naturelle of the French naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon. In 1779, Smellie was nominated to be the University of Edinburgh’s Professor of Natural History; however, the post was awarded to Dr. John Walker, allegedly due to politics.

Descripción: C. L. F. Panckoucke,, Paris, 1819. 4 voll. in-8° (210x133mm), di cui i primi tre di testo e l'ultimo di iconografia; pp. (6), 8, VIII, 278, (8); (2), 158, 3 + 4 di pubblicità editoriale per la seconda edizione della "Description de l'Égypte"; (8), II, 9-199 (paginazione continua), (1) di errata. Legatura coeva m. pelle verde cupo e angoli con titolo, filetti e decori in oro ai dorsi. Etichette con monogramma nobiliare della privata biblioteca del cavaliere Angelo Melano di Portula, noto soprattutto come autore di uno stimato Dizionario analitico di diritto e di economia industriale e commerciale (Torino, Cerutti, 1859). Sguardie marmorizzate policrome, tagli a spruzzo rossi, segnacoli. Tra le pp. 24-25 del terzo vol., una tav. ripiegata incisa su rame da invenzione di Turpin di classificazione graduale degli esseri organici, sia animali che vegetali. Il volume di tavv. comprende 64 incisioni su rame da disegno di Turpin in fine coloritura acquerellata coeva; il frontespizio dell'opera parla di 56 tavv., ma varie incisioni recano una numerazione bis. L'ultima tav., in b.n. e più volte ripiegata, è di "Organographie Végétale ou tableau elémentaire et philosophique des Organes extérieurs que constituent l'Etre végétal le plus compliqué, rangés selon l'ordre naturel de leur formation ou de leur dégré d'importance" (la tav., con raffigurazioni comparate di piante e fiori, è dedicata ad Alexander von Humboldt). Le restanti tavv. raffigurano frutti, fiori, radici, organismi vegetali elementari, foglie, etc. Bellissimo esemplare. Prima edizione di questa importante opera botanica avvalentesi dei testi del Poiret e delle magnifiche tavole del Turpin. L'edizione venne stampata in 4 differenti formati: In-4°, in-8° (il nostro esemplare appartiene a tale tiratura, riservata ai sottoscrittori) ed in-folio, una tiratura limitata di 10 copie. Per i tre formati vennero usati i medesimi caratteri di stampa. L'abate Poiret (Saint Quentin, 1755-Parigi, 1834), botanico, collaboratore di Lamarck, professore di storia naturale all'Università di Parigi, compilò il "Dictionnaire de Botanique" dell'"Encyclopédie" di Diderot e D'Alembert. Fra il 1785 e il 1786 venne inviato da Luigi XVI in Algeria per compiere un inventario della flora autoctona e dalla sua permanenza africana trasse il volume Voyage en Barbarie, ou Lettres écrites de l'ancienne Numidie pendant les années 1785 et 1786. Il Turpin (Vire, Normandia, 1775-Parigi, 1840), grande studioso di botanica, si iniziò a questa scienza in gioventù, quando, soldato, prese parte alla spedizione di Berthier a Santo Domingo conoscendo nell'isola il botanico Poireau. Dopo aver esplorato l'Isola Tartaruga, al ritorno in Francia prese ad illustrare con estrema perizia tecnica numerosi volumi botanici. Membro dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Parigi, si occupò di morfologia e fisiologia vegetale. Humboldt e Bompland gli dedicarono il genere di Composte Turpinia (o Barnadenia), e Ventenat il genere Turpinia delle Stafilacee. Sacheverell Sitwell e Wilfrid Blunt riconoscono a Turpin un'abilità nell'illustrazione botanica eguale a quella del ben più famoso Pierre Joseph Redouté, artista da cui fu assai influenzato ("possibly the greatest natural genius of all French botanical painters of his day", è la definizione data da Blunt di Turpin). Plesch, Stiftung für Botanik, 612. Dunthorne, 227; Stafleu, TL2 8115. Pritzel, 7234.Sitwell / Blunt, Great Flower Books, p. 145. Cfr. Nissen, 349. Chaumeton, VII, passim.

Descripción: per V. Batelli e figli, 1831 - 1837, Firenze, 1831. 41 volumi in-16° (158x100mm), pp. 400-500 ca. ogni volume, legatura coeva m. pelle con titolo e filetti in oro ai dorsi. Ritratti di Buffon e di Linneo all'antiporta del primo vol. Complessive662 tavv. incise su rame da Conti, Verico, Devegni, Carini, etc. e finemente colorate in lastra con raffigurazioni di animali e piante di ogni sorta. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione ottocentesca fiorentina profusamente illustrata e nella traduzione del Farini della più celebre opera naturalistica del '700, sorta di grande enciclopedia delle scienze naturali pubblicata all'origine fra il 1749 e il 1804. "Buffon's"Natural History, General and Particular" presented for the first time a complete survey of natural history in a popular form.He opens his great work with an essay called Théorie de la Terre, in which for the first time he outlines a satisfactory account of the history of our globe and of its development as a fitting home for living things.This rejection of a rigid system of classification, to which most biologists of his time adhered, and Buffon's belief in the mutability of species, implied clearly some preparation for the tought of Darwin.He was the first to present the universe as one complete whole and to find no phenomenon calling for any but a purely scientific explanation" (P.M.M., n. 198). Non esiste una collazione univoca dell'opera, data l'irregolarità e la disinvoltura dell'editore Batelli nell'inserimento delle tavole, collocate sparsamente e senza il minimo ordinamento cronologico, talora con numerazioni che si ripetono e, talvolta, con l'uso di semplici asterischi che non fanno che accrescere la confusione. L'opera di Buffon propriamente detta cessa al volume XIII ed è qui proseguita e integrata con la Storia Naturale de' rettili di Pierre Letreille, con la Storia naturale degli Insetti dell'Olivier, con la Storia naturale dei minerali di Eugène Melchior Louis Patrin, con la Storia naturale dei crostacei di Louis Augustin Guillaume Bosc, con la Storia naturale delle conchiglie dello stesso Bosc, con la Storia naturale de pesci di Marc Elieser Bloch e, infine, con la Storia naturale de vegetabili del Lamarck. Emilienne Genet-Varcin / Jacques Roger, Bibliographie de Buffon, passim. Nissen, 732. Ceresoli, 116, "In questa edizione la materia è stata rimaneggiata: alcuni capitoli sono stati omessi e alcuni tagliati e in altri anche svisato il testo originale da parte del traduttore". Graesse, I, 567. Cfr. Elio Baldacci in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, VII, pp. 225-226: "Padrone della sua lingua, dotato di vive facoltà liriche, il Buffon è scrittore brillante e, nelle descrizioni, stilista finissimo. il Buffon è giustamente considerato un precursore del metodo sperimentale, avendo accettato fra i primi il criterio comparativo nello studio degli organismi".
