FIRST EDITION. Folio. Contemp. three-quarter lea. with marbled boards. x, 143 pp. Twelve engraved plates by J. Basire after Huxley's drawings, each with an explanatory letterpress leaf. Ownership entry on half-title: "J. Lee, Hartwell, Received, 29. October, 1859." He has underlined some highlights in the Preface concerning the difficulties in getting this work published. Lee was likely a Ray Society member. A bit rubbed, a few leaves uniformly lightly browned; about a very good copy. Thomas H. Huxley's (1825-95) was ship's surgeon on the voyage of the 'Rattlesnake' to the Torres Straits off Australia, however the natural history work he conducted on his own time. ".Through extensive shipboard dissections and through library work in Sydney, Australia., Huxley was able to bring some order to these minute organisms which had been simply lumped together in those two great zoological lumber rooms, Linneaus' Vermes and Cuvier's Radiation. .Working out the details and relationships of the delicate marine animals he studied set the pattern for his career and gave him a firm grasp of major zoological problems." (D.S.B.). Freeman, 'Brit. Natural History Books', no. 1854. N° de ref. de la librería 000076
