Origin Of The Species FIRST Edition FIRST Printing Charles Darwin 1860 Appleton
Item History and Pricing
|Year Printed: 1860||Special Attributes: 1st Edition|
This auction is for a first American printing of "Origin of the Species," written by Charles Darwin and first published in the United States by Appleton in 1860. This is one of a handful of copies left that are the first issue, with two quotes opposite the title page. Astonishing. You can see the book has foxing and water damage. Also in photo 11 you can see one torn page (121-122...) out. Something written in pencil on ffep (photo 12) maybe someone can tell me what that says. The fold out map is present and oddly in fantastic shape. Text-block is solid with nothing falling out. I need someone who can take better care of this book than I can. SHIPPING: Each book will be placed inside a padded envelope and shipped securely in a box. International buyers, I welcome your bids, just keep in mind I use the Global Shipping Program, so if you are aware of the fees and customs associated with this, bid away! My first shipping day will be Tuesday. I WILL COMBINE shipping if you make multiple buys.
I have had great fun collecting these items and I hope you find some you like for your collection or re-sale. All of these lots will reach their conclusion and will not end early, so you can bid with confidence. Let me know if you have a question and I will be more than happy to help. Good luck!
