Beschreibung:

"A prominent Scottish naturalist, Wyville Thomson was born at Bonsyde in Linlithgow, West Lothian, on 5 March 1830, the son of a surgeon in the service of the British East India Company. He was baptized Wyville Thomas Charles Thomson. Wyville Thomson is remembered for his studies of the biological conditions of the deep seas. Being interested in crinoids, and prompted by the results of the dredgings of Michael Sars in the deep sea off the Norwegian coasts, he persuaded the Royal Navy to grant him use of HMS Lightning and HMS Porcupine for deep sea dredging expeditions in the summers of 1868 and 1869. They showed that animal life existed down to depths of 650 fathoms, that all marine invertebrate groups are present at this depth, and that deep-sea temperatures are not as constant as had been supposed, but vary considerably, and indicate oceanic circulation. These results were described in The Depths of the Sea, which he published in 1873. The remarkable hydrographic and zoological results which Wyville Thomson had demonstrated, in addition to the growing demands of ocean telegraphy, soon led to the Royal Navy to grant use of HMS Challenger for a global expedition. Wyville Thomson was selected as chief scientist, and the ship sailed on 23 December 1872. The Challenger Expedition was deemed a great success, and on his return Wyville Thomson received a number of academic honours, as well as a knighthood. In 1873 he published "Depths of the Sea" based on initial findings from the expedition. In 1880 he published two volumes (having completed writing in 1877), The Voyage of the Challenger in the Atlantic, a preliminary account of the results of the voyage". This set of two volumes is bound in contemporary half leather over green cloth boards with gilt and decorated spine panels. The binding shows wear at extremities, but is clean and intact. The contents are crisp, clean, and tight with minor spotting and browning confined mostly to fold-out maps and their proximity. All page edges are marbled and there are marbled endpapers. There are previous owner bookplates in the volumes. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
