Description

1798 Wallace, Alfred Russell. MIRACLES AND MODERN SPIRITUALISM. Revised Edition [the third] with Chapters on Apparitions and Phantasms. London: Nichols, 1901, publ's gilt cloth, 292pp, hinges cracking but vg. The original three essays are corrected and slightly revised, plus over 140 additional pages. First published in 1874. The body of three lectures, one delivered before The Dialectical Society. Wallace 1823-1913 was of course the co-discoverer with Darwin of biological evolution. According to Wallace he was sitting one day when it struck him fully-formed, the idea of the survival of the fittest, and dashed off an outline of his ideas to Darwin. It turned out that what Wallace wrote was a close resume of what Darwin had already just written himself. Wallace's scientific work was largely cast aside and forgotten after the publication of On Miracles, which conversely helped stimulate the scientific investigation of psychical phenomena. Wallace was a firmly unconventional man; vegetarian, anti-vaccinationist, phrenologist, and a socialist. See the DNB entry for a lengthy account of his life. This third edition deletes the appendix in the second edition on Carpenter's book The Principles of Mental Physiology. With the rage for collecting Darwin's works, early editions of Wallace's books have become scarce. There is a reprint priced at $295.00! $175.00
