  1. ダーウィン 「人及び動物の表情」 初版2刷 1872年 ロンドン刊

      Darwin, Charles: The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. London, 1872. Octavo. Original dark

      green cloth, titles to spine gilt, covers blocked in blind, black coated endpapers. 374 pp. 7 heliotype plates

      numbered in roman, 3 of which are folding; woodcut illustrations in the text. Galignani’s bookseller’s ticket to

      front pastedown. Binding very lightly rubbed at extremities but cloth otherwise bright and fresh, hinges

      cracked, some light foxing to contents. An excellent copy.

      1st ed., second issue with the misprint “htat” on page 208. Expression of the Emotions is the book that

      completed Darwin’s great cycle of evolutionary writings. The subject had originally been meant for the

      Descent of Man, but Darwin held it over for separate treatment. Darwin invited the photographer Oscar

      Rejlander to make comparative studies of laughter and crying; he obtained photographs of lunatics from

      asylum director James Crichton-Browne; and he consulted the French physiologist Guillaume Duchenne

      about his electrical research on facial muscles. The reproductions of these are some of the earliest

      commercially reproduced photographs in a printed book.
