Description:

FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Contemp. calf, rebacked. (2), iv, (4), 558, (2, errata) pp. Corners of covers worn; a very good copy. G-M 159. "Beginning with his medical dissertation of 1808, which he expanded into the three editions of 'Researches into the physical history of mankind', Prichard (1786-1848) sought to demonstrate the single origin of humanity by compiling evidence from a variety of fields. .In the earliest versions of his work Prichard had discounted the role of external factors in influencing racial variation.When he came to publish the 1813 edition of 'Researches', however, he had relaxed his position so far as to adopt John Hunter's theory that civilization leads to lighter coloration, and suggested that primordial savage populations had advanced toward civilization by favoring lighter types - a principle closely resembling Darwin's theory of sexual selection. This last theory led to the novel and controversial proposal that Adam had been black, and that the black races, far from representing a degeneration from white 'perfection', were the origin from which the white races had sprung. Prichard abandoned this theory in later editions." (H.F. Norman Lib. Cat. 1741). Wellcome IV.434. Cole Lib. II.280. This edition not in Waller, Osler, Cushing, Blocker Coll., Heirs of Hippocrates, Pybus, or Roller & Goodman. Bookseller Inventory #
