London: John Murray, 1887. First edition, in three volumes (ix, 395; 393; 418, appendices, index), illustrated with three frontispieces and several other engravings reproduced from the popular press. Tall octavo (22 cm.), in blue-green publisher’s cloth, gilt titles to spines. The first 160 pages or so of Volume I comprise a brief ancestral history, an autobiographical sketch (apparently much shortened) intended originally for Darwin’s wife and children, and a description of Darwin’s daily habits and practices by Sir Francis Darwin, his son and the editor of the collection. The first of these many letters, characteristically, begs the help of J. M. Herbert, a university friend, in collecting several varieties of beetles Darwin was eager to examine. A commentator in the TLS once mentioned Darwin wrote six million words (more or less, I imagine) in his long life; a great many of them are collected here, arranged topically and chronologically, portraying Darwin’s daily… Read more

Octavo (20 cm) in contemporary full calf, gilt decoration and titles, speckled edges, marbled epps. ‘An entertaining periodical’, a weekly, whose first number appeared 26 September 1799 and whose sixtieth, and final number 18 December 1800 (Lowndes, Bibliographer’s Manual). The complete sixty numbers collected here comprise a mixture of literary essays and short fiction with a scattering of verse meant for the drawing room or shady summer garden. The reviewer in The Monthly Magazine (Vol. XIV, 1803) rides a metaphor about as far as one will go, saying, ‘Mr. Saunter has set before his guests a great variety of dishes, sweet, savoury, and simple: many of them are extremely well cooked, and served up with considerable taste: besides these... Mr. Saunter has accommodated some old English appetites, with a few solid joints of great excellence- plain, roast, and boiled.’ Titles faded… Read more
