Cloth overall fresh with just a little rubbing at the extremities, half-title partially tanned, small mark slightly affecting fore-edge and margins of final leaves. A lovely copy in excellent condition. Bibliography: Freeman, British Natural History Books 1450-1900 3431. First edition, first impression of this attractive and copiously illustrated popular guide to field microscopy. Excellent condition and uncommon thus. Marvels of Pond Life was based on a full year of observations carried out by the newspaper editor, author, and activist Henry J. Slack, who advocated "causes such as the abolition of slavery, the ending of the paper duties, and the higher education of women", and in his spare time was " an ardent microscopist. successively secretary and president (1878) of the Royal Microscopical Society" (ODNB). For this volume Slack took samples from ponds in and around London during 1860 and carefully recorded the microscopic animals he found there, while his wife completed drawings for the illustrations from his live samples. The book opens with a short chapter titled "Hints on Microscopes and Their Management", and each that follows explains the discoveries made during one month of the year, including tips on capturing and viewing the animals and information regarding their biology and habits. Slack conversationally discusses and illustrates a wide variety of creatures, including rotifers, vorticellae, polyps, infusoria, and the enigmatic tardigarde or water-bear, which he describes as "a little puppy-shaped animal very busy pawing about with eight imperfect legs, but not making much progress with all his efforts. a very comical amusing little fellow he was. each of the eight legs were provided with four serviceable claws, there was no tail, and the blunt head was susceptible of considerable alteration of shape. He was grubbing about among some bits of decayed vegetation, and from the mass of green matter in his stomach, it was evident that he was not one of that painfully numerous class in England - the starving poor" (pp 172-173). Marvels of Pond Life was popular enough to be reprinted four times through the 1890s, but copies of the first edition in such nice condition are uncommon. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Marvels of Pond-Life: Or a Year s Microscopic Recreations Among the Polyps, Infusoria, Rotifers, Water-Bears and Polyzoa The researches of recent philosophers have shewn us that nature cannot be understood by studying the parts of animals with reference merely to their utility in the economy of the creature to which they belong. We do, indeed, find an admirable correspondence between structures and the services they perform; but every object in creation, and every part Of it, is in harmonious relation to some grand design, and exhibits a conformity to some general mode of operation, or some general disposition and direction of forces, which secures the existence of the individual or the species, and at the same time works out the most majestic schemes. Microscopic researches, such as are within the reach of millions, offer many of the most beautiful illustrations of these truths; and although the following pages are confined to such objects as are easily obtainable from ponds, and relate almost exclusively to the Infusoria, the Rotifers. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
