More About this Item


Description: BUFFON, (G.L. Leclerc de). Les Epoques de la Nature. Paris, l'Imprimerie Royale, 1780. 2 vols. (4), 246; (4), 264 pp. W. 6 engr. plates & 2 engr. fold. maps. Cont. stiff brds. w. a later library label on spine. (Extremities of spine lightly rubbed, invisible small rep. to 1 map, else a fine set). First separate edition of the work that "contains Buffon's theory of the earth, his history of nature divided into seven geologically and biologically based epochs, and his attempt to establish a universal chronology based upon observation and experiment. In Buffon's system, life first appeared nearly 35000 years ago, but man's time on earth had lasted only 6000 years - a period intentionally coincident with biblical chronology. The Epoques established the intellectual framework in which most natural historians would work up until the time of Darwin." (Norman) The work first appeared in the fifth volume of Buffon's Natural History. - Rare. Norman I, 370; Wellcome II, 268; DSB II, 576-582; cf. PMM, 198. Estimated Price: € 600
