Henry Walter Bates, b. February 8, 1825, Leicester; d. February 16, 1892, London), was an important mid-century English naturalist, whose main contributions centred around mimicry in the animal kingdom.

"The Naturalist on the River Amazons" was so important and highly regarded upon its publication, that Charles Darwin dubbed it to be among the best books of natural history travel-writing ever publishing in England.

"In the autumn of 1847 Mr. A.[lfred] R.[ussell] Wallace, who has since acquired wide fame in connection with the Darwinian theory of Natural Selection, proposed to me a joint expedition to the river Amazons, for the purpose of exploring the Natural History of its banks; the plan being to make for ourselves a collection of objects, dispose of the duplicates in London to pay expenses, and gather facts, as Mr. Wallace expressed it in one his letters, 'towards solving the problem of the origin of species'. [...] My companion left the country at the end of four years; [...] I remained seven years longer, returning home in July, 1959. [...] The part of the Amazons region where I resided longest being unexplored country to the Naturalist, no less than 8000 of the species here enumerated were new to science."- from the preface.

Spines of original cloth rebacked, new endpapers, plate opposite II-265 "Turtle-Fishing and Adventure with Alligator" missing (but replaced with a facsimile tipped in), repair to fold of folding map at rear of first volume, a couple instances of marginal smudging, else a very good, tidy set. 2,800.00

3 BERGER, Carl. Science, God, and Nature in Victorian Canada. The 1982 Joanne Goodman Lectures.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London , 1983, ISBN:0802065236 
BERGER, Carl. Science, God, and Nature in Victorian Canada. The 1982 JoanneGoodman Lectures. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press , (1983). Pp [i]-xiv,[1]-92,+ 6 pp plates. Index. 8vo, red card covers, lettered in white. “This book explores the rise, expansion, and decline of theidea of natural history. The author considers the sense of wonder and reve rence with which Victorian Canadians, like their British contemporaries, looked at the varieties and delights of nature. The British tradition of natural theology had a great impact on the pursuit of science in Victorian Canada, leading naturalists and poets alike to seek in the uncharted flora and fauna of their new land the handiwork of a benevolent God. Berger examines the impact of the discoveries of Darwin on this tradition and on the relations between science and religion, as the creator and the act of creation become more and more distant in time and more tenuously connected to the world of nature.” - from the back cover.
