Book Description: Macmillan, London, 1869. Original Cloth. Book Condition: Near Fine. First. 8vo. Original Publisher's cloth VOL I: xxiii, 478pp, frontispiece, 5 maps - two folding, and two plates, many text illustrations, adverts (50pp, dated Dec. 1868). VOL II: 524pp, frontispiece, four maps and four plates, index. CONDITION: VERY GOOD-NEAR FINE. Both volumes in uniform condition. Expertly rebacked using matching period cloth - superbly done. Both bindings tight and square. Contemporary signature of T.G.B. Lloyd to front endpaper of each volume. [T.G.B. Lloyd was an English geologist and anthropologist. Most of his published work concerns Canadian natives, particularly those of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the 1870s he did much important research into the Beothuk tribe of Newfoundland - an ethnic group which was wiped out in the early 19th Century.] Very little by way of foxing and other marks. Foxing to the endpapers, slightly heavier at the end of volume I, but otherwise excellent. Maps and plates present as called for and all in great condition. A very pleasing, near fine, set of Wallace's most important work which is very hard to find in original cloth (in any condition). I am not aware of any sets in the publisher's cloth in the trade at present, or any that have been sold at auction recently. Alfred Russel Wallace, OM, FRS (1823 - 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently conceiving the theory of evolution through natural selection, which prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own ideas in On the Origin of Species. The Malay Archipelago - which is dedicated to Charles Darwin (see photo) - chronicles Wallace's scientific exploration, during the eight-year period 1854 to 1862, of the southern portion of the Malay Archipelago including Malaysia, Singapore, the islands of Indonesia, then known as the Dutch East Indies, and the island of New Guinea. It was published in two volumes in 1869, delayed by Wallace's ill health and the work needed to describe the many specimens he brought home. The book went through ten editions in the nineteenth century; it has been reprinted many times since, and has been translated into at least eight languages. The book described each island that he visited in turn, giving a detailed account of its physical and human geography, its volcanoes, and the variety of animals and plants that he found and collected. At the same time, he describes his experiences, the difficulties of travel, and the help he received from the different peoples that he met. The preface notes that he travelled over 14,000 miles and collected 125,660 natural history specimens, mostly of insects though also with thousands of molluscs, birds, mammals and reptiles. The Malay Archipelago attracted many reviews, with interest from scientific, geographic, church and general periodicals. Reviewers noted and sometimes disagreed with various of his theories, especially the division of fauna and flora along what soon became known as the Wallace line, natural selection and uniformitarianism. Nearly all agreed that he had provided an interesting and comprehensive account of the geography, natural history, and peoples of the archipelago, which was little known to their readers at the time, and that he had collected an astonishing number of specimens. The book is much cited, and is Wallace's most successful, both commercially and as a piece of literature. By T G B Lloyd - Anthropologist. Bookseller Inventory # 001548
