Baron Cuvier The Animal Kingdom 1831
Item Details
Description
Title: The Animal Kingdon Arranged in Conformity With its Organization
Author: Cuvier, Baron [Georges]
Description: Four Volumes. Translated by H. M'Murtrie into English with notes and additions. xxxii, 448 [2]; xv [1], 475 [1]; xx, 575 [1]; xii, 545 [1] pp. 20 engraved plates. (8vo) 8¾x5¼, period full speckled sheep, black morocco spine labels. First American Edition.The most influential exposition of the typological approach to animal classification, representing the greatest body of zoological facts that had yet been assembled; it served as the standard zoological manual for most of Europe during the first half of the nineteenth century. Cuvier's view of animal organization led him to an early recognition of the balance of nature, both with respect to the functional balance of parts in the individual and the interdependence of groups in the "network of nature." However, Cuvier's adherence to the concept of species as rigid, unchanging types rendered him unable to account for the immense variation within species populations.
