Darwin Correspondence Project

Darwin’s reading notebooks

In April 1838, Darwin began recording the titles of books he had read and the books he wished to read in Notebook C (Notebooks, pp. 319–28). In 1839, these lists were copied and continued in separate notebooks. The first of these reading notebooks (DAR 119) opens with five pages of text copied from Notebook C and carries on through 1851; the second (DAR 128) continues the list from 1852 to 1860, when, except for a few odd entries, the record ends. Both notebooks consist of two different sections, headed ‘Books Read’ and ‘Books to be Read’, begun at opposite ends of the same notebook, with the text of each written upside down with respect to the other. The editors of the Correspondence have used these notebooks extensively in dating and annotating Darwin’s letters; the full transcript presented here makes this information more widely available. A previous transcript of the reading notebooks (Vorzimmer 1977) included only the ‘Books Read’ sections, but since many of the entries listed in ‘Books to be Read’ were later marked ‘read’, these sections have also been included here. The latter sections are clearly distinguished in the transcription by the manuscript number being preceded by an asterisk (*119 and *128).

For clarity, the transcript does not record Darwin’s alterations. The spelling and dates, however, are exactly as they were written. The reader should keep in mind that many of the comments about the works were later additions to the notebook text. A number of entries in the ‘Books to be Read’ sections have been crossed out. In most cases the deletion indicates that the book had been consulted. Those cases where it appears that Darwin made a genuine deletion have been noted.

In the ‘Books to be Read’ entries, Darwin frequently included information that would help him locate the work, such as the publisher or series in which it was included, and often he listed the libraries which he thought might hold the book. Names following entries usually indicate the person who recommended the work to him. In a few instances, primarily in the ‘Books Read’ sections, Darwin recorded that a work had been entered in an alphabetical listing of books read. This notebook (DAR 120) is a catalogue, arranged alphabetically, of the scientific books read from 1838 through 1846, but it was not kept up-to-date and contains only a small number of the books listed in the other two notebooks. Sometimes Darwin recorded that an abstract of the work had been made. This refers, as stated in the Autobiography (p. 137), to the abstracts he prepared of books he did not own.

Soon after beginning his first reading notebook, Darwin began to separate the scientific from the non-scientific books, with the scientific works listed on the left-hand pages (labelled ‘a’ in the transcript) and the non-scientific on the right (labelled ‘b’). He continued this separation of entries in the second reading notebook. Readers primarily interested in Darwin’s scientific reading, therefore, should concentrate on the alternate pages of the two notebooks, numbered as follows: the verso of the pages of DAR *119, the ‘a’ pages of DAR 119, the odd-numbered pages of DAR *128, and the even-numbered pages of DAR 128.

Each entry in the transcript is followed by the editors’ identification of the book or article to which Darwin refers. A full list of these works is given in the bibliography that follows the transcript. Each citation includes a reference to the manuscript page number (or numbers, as the case may be) on which Darwin’s entry is to be found. The bibliography also indicates which works are in the surviving Darwin library.†In addition, if an abstract of the work has been identified in the Darwin archive, its location is given.

In those instances where books are cited which went through numerous editions, we have given only the date of the first edition and indicated in the bibliography that other editions were available to Darwin. While it is likely that Darwin read recently published works, we have not attempted to guess which contemporary edition he may have consulted unless additional information is given on which to base a decision. References usually include the entire date-range of multi-volume editions, even if this sometimes extends beyond the date of citation in the notebook. In cases where we are not certain that the work cited is the one Darwin intended, we have prefixed the bibliographic citation in the transcript with a question mark.

Complete or partial runs of journals which Darwin recorded as having read or skimmed are identified in the transcript by their titles enclosed in square brackets. The full journal titles are listed separately, in alphabetical sequence, following the bibliography. The dates of publication, relative to the date of the notebook, are indicated as well as, where relevant, the names of editors. As in the main bibliography, the manuscript page number(s) are given on which the references to the journal appear, and the location of abstracts in the Darwin archive and journals included in the Darwin library are listed.

Readers should bear in mind that the list of works recorded in the reading notebooks is by no means a complete representation of the books and journals Darwin read. The Darwin archive includes numerous references to other works he consulted which were not entered into the reading notebooks. For example, Darwin’s copy of the catalogue of scientific books in the Royal Society of London (Royal Society of London 1839) has been heavily marked, and quite a few of the entries next to which he wrote ‘read’ are not found listed here. The description given by Francis Darwin of his father’s method of handling the scientific books and pamphlets he read explains how some works might have escaped being recorded (LL, 1: 151):

He had one shelf on which were piled up the books he had not yet read, and another to which they were transferred after having been read, and before being catalogued. He would often groan over his unread books, because there were so many which he knew he should never read. Many a book was at once transferred to the other heap, either marked with a cypher at the end, to show that it contained no marked passages, or inscribed, perhaps, ‘not read,’ or ‘only skimmed.’ The books accumulated in the ‘read’ heap until the shelves overflowed, and then, with much lamenting, a day was given up to the cataloguing.

The reading list, even if incomplete, is nonetheless remarkable in indicating the number and the general orientation of the works upon which Darwin drew, particularly in the process of working out his ideas on the transmutation of species. In 1876, long after this period of Darwin’s life was over, he frankly admitted: ‘When I see the list of books of all kinds which I read and abstracted, including whole series of Journals and Transactions, I am surprised at my industry.’ (Autobiography, p. 119).

†The scientific books in Darwin’s library were catalogued in 1875, and this manuscript catalogue is in the Darwin Library (AC.34). Darwin’s books were bequeathed to Francis Darwin, who, in 1908, gave all but a few to the Professor of Botany at the University of Cambridge. These works, catalogued by H. W. Rutherford (Catalogue of the library of Charles Darwin now in the Botany School, Cambridge (1908)), remained on the open shelves of the Botany School Library until 1929. At that time, most were transferred for exhibition in Darwin’s study when Down House was opened to the public. After the Darwin archive was established in the Cambridge University Library, books that contained annotations were transferred back to Cambridge to be available to scholars using the archive. Books that Francis Darwin had kept were left to his son Bernard and then to Bernard’s son, Sir Robin Darwin, and many of these were later acquired by the University Library and are in the Rare Books Room. The present collection of Darwin’s Library, therefore, does not include all the works that were in Darwin’s library during his lifetime.

1 The personal library of Charles Stokes from whom CD borrowed books.

2 The Cambridge University Library, known then as the Public Library.

3 ‘Books … Read’ is in Emma Darwin’s hand.

4 “”Traité … 1839.” is a printed notice pasted into the notebook.

5 ‘Said … Lindsay’ was added in pencil by CD.

6 The text from page [1v.] to page [6] is in Emma Darwin’s hand and was copied from Notebook C, pp. 268–265 (Notebooks).

7 Probably a reference to the private library of William Jackson Hooker and his son, Joseph Dalton Hooker, from whom CD borrowed books.

8 In Notebook C, p. 17 (Notebooks), CD wrote: ‘Voyage of Coquille. Zoologie. p. 19. Tapir, ‹des› couroucous et rupicole vert instances of American forms in East. Ind: Archipelago. Raffles. Horsfield. Diard. Duvaucel. Leschenault Kuhl. Van-Hasselt, Reinwardt ‹Forrest› authors on E. I‹ndian›. A‹rch.›’. These authors were cited in Lesson and Garnot 1826–30.

9 CD did not follow his own advice. In 1879, he stated that he had unbounded respect for Aristotle as an observer, but he had never read his works (Calendar no. 11875). In February 1882, however, after reading the introduction to William Ogle’s translation of Aristotle’s De partibus animalium, CD wrote: ‘From quotations which I had seen, I had a high notion of Aristotle’s merits, but I had not the most remote notion what a wonderful man he was. Linnæus and Cuvier have been my two gods … but they were mere schoolboys to old Aristotle.’ (LL3: 252).

10 Emma Darwin wrote ‘7th’ instead of “3d“. See Notebook C, p. 267 (Notebooks).

11 This work has not been identified.

12 A mistranscription for ‘Entozoa’ by Emma Darwin. See Notebook C, p. 266 (Notebooks).

13 See Notebook C, p. 266 (Notebooks), where CD wrote “curious”, not “various”, and “Botanist”, not “Botanists”.

14 Herbert 1837, p. 348, reads: “Kolreuter’s experiments are detailed in the transactions of the Petersburg Acad. in 1777, and the five or six following years.”

15 CD wrote ‘Transact’ to replace ‘Journal’ written in Emma Darwin’s hand.

16 Emma Darwin wrote ‘McNeil’ instead of “Mr Neil”. See Notebook C, p. 265 (Notebooks).

17 The entries from this point on are in CD’s hand.

18 The entries from ‘Volneys’ to [Temminck 1833] on page [5v.] are taken from the inside back cover of Notebook C (Notebooks).

19 According to the DNB, William Herbert provided notes for both William Bennett’s edition (1837) and for James Rennie’s edition (1833) of Gilbert White’s Natural History of Selborne.

20 CD recorded reading Pallas 1777a, 1777b, 1780,1794, and 1802–3 in later entries in the Reading Notebooks.

21 Erasmus Alvey Darwin.

22 Robert Waring Darwin.

23 The Athenaeum, no. 632, 7 December 1839, p. 933, announced that David Low’s Illustrations of the breeds of the domestic animals of the British Islands would be published in parts from January 1840.

24 Announced in the same issue of the Athenaeum, p. 932, as D. Low 1842 (see n. 23, above).

25 This entry and the following three are printed notices pasted into the notebook.

26 Henry Peter Brougham, Baron Brougham and Vaux.

27 This is presumably the date and number of the part containing William Pulteney Alison’s article which was issued prior to the publication of the completed volume in 1847.

28 A work with this title has not been located. CD may possibly have been referring to Samuel Johnson, The vanity of human wishes(1784).

29 Possibly a reference to Joseph Priestley, Hartley’s theory of the human mind (1775).

30 ‘The … 12s.’ is a printed notice pinned into the notebook.

31 CD added this in pencil on the printed notice.

32 It has not been possible to identify which encyclopaedias CD used for articles on hybrids.

33 The Archiv für Naturgeschichte, edited by Arend Friedrich August Wiegmann and known as Wiegmann’s Archiv.

34 CD described his method of organising his notes and references in the Autobiography, pp. 137–8: ‘I keep from thirty to forty large portfolios, in cabinets with labelled shelves, into which I can at once put a detached reference or memorandum. I have bought many books and at their ends I make an index of all the facts that concern my work; or, if the book is not my own, write out a separate abstract, and of such abstracts I have a large drawer full. Before beginning on any subject I look to all the short indexes and make a general and classified index, and by taking the one or more proper portfolios I have all the information collected during my life ready for use.’ While much of the material from these portfolios is in DAR 205, the letter from William Edward Shuckard to which CD refers has not been located.

35 This work has not been identified. Gallesio’s genealogical tree of citrons is in the Darwin Pamphlet Collection, bound with extracts from Gallesio’s works published in 1839 [Quarto Pamphlets 33].

36 Possibly a reference to some of the descriptions in the Botanist, 5 vols. (1837–41), edited by John Stevens Henslow and B. Maund.

37 See letters to John Forbes Royle, [12 April – 17 May 1847] and 14 August [1847], in which CD arranged to borrow copies of this rare journal from Royle. Hugh Falconer was in London at this time.

38 Only the second part of the work was published by Whittaker and Co., but the company may have reissued both parts in 1844.

39 John Lindley served as assistant secretary to the Horticultural Society from 1822 to 1841 then vice-secretary from 1841 to 1858.

40 ‘Jardine’s … Bees.’ is a printed notice pinned into the notebook listing the volumes in the Naturalist’s Library edited by William Jardine, a forty-volume series on the natural history of animals published in Edinburgh from 1834 to 1843. Only those titles which were ticked by CD have been transcribed here.

41 ‘Jacintes … 12s.’ is a printed notice pasted into the notebook.

42 ‘Miller … 5s.’ is a printed notice pasted into the notebook.

43 CD deleted this entry in ink. The same work is listed again on p. [22].

44 Probably Francis Boott.

45 Edward Forbes provided sketches and notes for the map on ‘Palæontology of the British Isles’ in A. K. Johnston 1848. The revised edition of Johnston’s Physical atlas (1856) included ‘Map of the distribution of marine life, illustrated chiefly by fishes, molluscs & radiata; showing also the extent & limits of the homoiozoic belts’ by Forbes. The map was also independently published in 1854. CD’s abstract of the work is in DAR 72: 58–61.

46 This information was erroneous. Amanz Gressly had published a series of papers from 1838 to 1841 entitled ‘Observations géologiques sur le Jura Soleurois’ in vols. 2, 4, and 5 of the Neue Denkschriften der allgemeinen Schweizerischen Gesellschaft für die gesammtenNaturwissenschaften. In 1859 he was the coauthor, with E. Desor, of ‘Études géologiques sur le Jura Neuchatelois’ published in theMémoires de la Société des Sciences Naturelles de Neuchâtel.

47 Possibly a slip for James Abbott, Narrative of a journey from Heraut to Khiva (James Abbott 1843).

48 Emily Catherine Darwin.

49 Almost certainly a slip for “Letters”. CD made the same mistake when he referred on the next page to Liebig’s “lectures” instead of “letters” on chemistry (Liebig 1851).

50 Probably Elizabeth Wedgwood.

51 This note is a reference to the alphabetical list of the books read by CD (DAR 120), which was begun by Catherine Darwin and continued by CD.

52 It is probable that this list was pinned into CD’s Catalogue of the scientific books in the library of the Royal Society (Royal Society of London 1839).

53 These two entries were written upside down at the bottom of the page.

54 The text from page [1a] to half way down page [5a] is in Emma Darwin’s hand and is a copy of CD’s reading list in Notebook C, pp. 265–76 (Notebooks, pp. 319–28).

55 The letter was addressed to Nicholas Aylward Vigors about John Fleming, and the review was by Fleming (see Notebooks, p. 320, n. 12).

56 The copyist wrote “Lister” instead of “Lisle”. See Notebook C, p. 275 (Notebooks).

57 The ‘J’ is a mistranscription of CD’s “T”. See Notebook C, p. 270 (Notebooks).

58 CD added “5th Edit” to the text.

59 “References at end” was added by CD.

60 “Earl’s” in Notebook C, p. 270 (Notebooks).

61 “G.” in Notebook C, p. 269 (Notebooks).

62 CD added “do 2d … Reading”.

63 “Zoonomia … end—” was added by CD.

64 “Well” was added in pencil by CD.

65 “Well” added in pencil by CD.

66 The bibliography provides the titles of the works by William Shakespeare that CD recorded having read. Obviously many editions of these works would have been available to CD.

67 From this date, CD began to note the non-scientific books read on the right-hand pages of the notebook; he used the left-hand pages to list scientific books.

68 The next three entries are on page [10b], but since they are a continuation of the list of books read at Maer, for the sake of clarity they have been transcribed with the previous entries.

69 These reports were issued intermittently by the Assembly of the State of New York and entitled “Communication from the governor, relative to the geological survey of the state”. Several numbers from the years 1838, 1839, 1840, and 1841 are in DAR 136 and 137.

70 The dates given by CD indicate that he read the journal Observations sur la Physique edited by François Rozier. The title of the journal was subsequently changed to Journal de Physique, de Chimie, et de l’Histoire Naturelle (1794–1823).

71 CD wrote “1st” and then later altered this to “2d” and added “first”.

72 This entry was deleted in ink by CD.

73 This entry was written by Emma Darwin.

74 “8 … Quixote.” was written by Emma Darwin.

75 François André Michaux was the son of the botanist André Michaux (1746–1802).

76 Possibly a mistake for “Mowbray”, the pseudonym of John Lawrence, whose Treatise on domestic poutlry, pigeons and rabbits (1815) went through numerous editions. CD’s annotated copy of the 7th edition (1834) is in the Darwin Library.

77 CD deleted this entry in pencil. See entry for 30 December.

78 CD wrote “my copy” to replace “Hooker’s copy”. The pamphlet in CD’s collection is a presentation copy from the author to William Jackson Hooker. See Correspondence vol. 3, letter to J. D. Hooker, [5 or 12 November 1845], in which CD thanked Hooker for obtaining a copy of Gérard’s paper for him.

79 The cyclopædia of anatomy and physiology, edited by Robert Bentley Todd, was issued in parts. William Pulteney Alison’s article first appeared as No. 19 in 1840 (see *119: 11v.).

80 CD obviously meant to write “Principles”, not “Elements”, here.

81 This work was issued in parts.

82 CD refers to a translation published in the Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal in which it was reported that the article was taken from a memoir read before the Académie des Sciences on 19 February 1821. The memoir was not printed in the Mémoires de l’Academie Royale des Sciences, but was reported in “Analyse des travaux de l’Académie Royale des Sciences, pendant l’année 1821″, p. 167.

83 CD began this list at the back of the notebook.

84 John Lindley described plant breeding experiments performed by Lord Arthur Hervey in 1843 in Gardeners’ Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette, no. 33 (1844), p. 555. These concerned the transformation of wheat (Triticum) into rye (Secale). Aegilops is the wild oat.

85 Franz Unger’s book on hybridism was reviewed in Gardeners’ Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette, no. 32 (1852), p. 502. CD marked this article in his copy of the journal.

86 CD marked this entry ‘X’ in brown crayon.

87 CD marked this entry ‘O’ in pencil.

88 Samuel Highley, proprietor of a scientific library, museum, and publishing company at 32 Fleet Street, London, was “bookseller by appointment to the Royal College of Surgeons.” His catalogue of scientific equipment and books issued in 1852 contains an advertisement of Bendz 1850.

89 CD marked this entry ‘X’ in brown crayon.

90 The lecture was in fact delivered at the first evening discourse of the Liverpool meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1854). Richard Owen gave the same paper at the evening meeting of the Royal Institution on 9 February 1855.

91 The note “not published … 1834″ was added in pencil.

92 CD marked this entry ‘O’ in pencil.

93 This work has not been identified.

94 This paper has not been identified. It is possible that James Wilson’s work on the origin of domestic animals was mentioned in theHighland Agricultural Report. Several of his papers, including “On the origin of domestic poultry” (1830), were published in the Memoirs of the Wernerian Natural History Society.

95 CD marked this entry “[SYMBOL]” and ‘O’ in pencil.

96 CD marked this entry ‘O’ in pencil.

97 CD marked this entry “[SYMBOL]“; the ‘X’ is in brown crayon and the ‘O’ in pencil. It is not clear which of William Jackson Hooker’s journals is meant here: the Journal of Botany ran from 1834 to 1842, followed by the London Journal of Botany, 1842–8, and Hooker’s Journal of Botany, 1849–57.

98 CD marked this entry “[SYMBOL]” in pencil.

99 CD marked this entry ‘O’ in pencil.

100 CD marked this entry with ‘X’ in brown crayon.

101 Fanny Hensleigh, i.e., Frances Mackintosh Wedgwood.

102 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

103 Hugh Cuming. John Gould Anthony published Description of new fluviatile shells of the genus Melania … from the western states of North America in 1854.

104 CD marked this entry with “[SYMBOL]” in pencil.

105 CD has marked this entry “[SYMBOL]” in pencil. The nutcracker is a bird (Nucifraga) of the crow family.

106 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

107 CD marked this entry “[SYMBOL]” in pencil.

108 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

109 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

110 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil. The information given is confused since the reference given by Naudin 1852, p. 108, is to Vilmorin’s preliminary report on the creation of a new true-breeding spineless hybrid of Ulex europaeus, a spiny evergreen shrub with yellow flowers. The plant breeding company Vilmorin-Andrieux published a catalogue (Vilmorin-Andrieux 1851–7).

111 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil. The information is confused; the citation given is actually that of Richard Owen’s paper onDinornis rather than on the chimpanzee.

112 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

113 The Cottage Gardener ceased publication in 1856.

114 CD marked this entry with ‘X’ in brown crayon and ‘O’ in pencil.

115 CD marked this entry with ‘X’ in brown crayon.

116 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

117 This entry and the following one are printed notices pasted into the notebook.

118 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

119 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

120 CD marked this entry with ‘O’ in pencil.

121 The Microscopic Journal and Structural Record was issued in two numbers for 1841 and eight numbers for 1842, when it ceased publication.

122 The Microscopic Journal ceased publication after no. 8 in 1842. CD’s reference to “July 54″ is evidently the date of reading.

123 CD deleted this entry in ink.

124 CD deleted this entry in ink.

125 CD deleted this entry in ink, presumably because he had added it by mistake to his list of non-scientific books.
