The origin of civilisation and the primitive condition of man by John Lubbock( Book )

196 editions published between 1870 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though professionally a banker and politician, John Lubbock (1834-1913) is best remembered for his scientific writings. As a boy, he was tutored by his father's friend, Charles Darwin, in natural history. He went on to make contributions to archaeology, anthropology and entomology. In this illustrated anthropological treatise, Lubbock applies evolutionary theory to the development of human civilisations, outlining the progression from ancient forms of art, relationships, religion, ethics, language and law to their counterparts in the present day. He argues that the social structures of ancient cultures can be interpreted through interaction with contemporary primitive cultures. Published in book form in 1870, the material for this work was first delivered as a lecture series at the Royal Institution. Lubbock's Pre-historic Times as Illustrated by Ancient Remains, and the Manners and Customs of Modern Savages (1865), in which he coined the terms Palaeolithic and Neolithic, is also reissued in this series
Prehistoric times as illustrated by ancient remains and the manners and customs of savages by John Lubbock( Book )

219 editions published between 1865 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir John Lubbock (1834-1915) was an English banker who was fascinated with biology and archaeology. He was a close friend of Charles Darwin and a prolific writer who made influential contributions to both of these fields, being appointed the President of the Linnaean Society between 1881-1886. First published in 1865, it was written as a textbook of prehistoric archaeology. It became one of the most influential and popular archaeological books of the nineteenth century, being reissued in seven editions between 1865 and 1913. In this volume Lubbock develops an evolutionary interpretation of archaeology, using prehistoric material remains as evidence that human cultures become more sophisticated over time. He also introduces the division of prehistory, coining the terms Palaeolithic and Neolithic to subdivide the Stone Age. Lubbock's interpretation of cultural evolution was an extremely influential social theory which was widely adopted by contemporary archaeologists and anthropologists
Ants, bees, and wasps; a record of observations on the habits of the social Hymenoptera by John Lubbock( Book )

185 editions published between 1881 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the record of various experiments made with ants, bees, and wasps, during the past ten years; and most of which have appeared in the 'Journal of the Linnean Society, ' for the years 1874 to 1882. I have, whenever it seemed necessary, carefully recorded the month during which the observations were made; for the instincts and behaviour of ants, bees, and wasps are by no means the same throughout the year. My object has been not so much to describe the usual habits of these insects as to test their mental condition and powers of sense. I do not attempt to give anything like a full life-history of ants, but I have here reproduced the substance of two Royal Institution lectures, which may serve as an introduction to the subject. I hope that my volume will at least show the great interest of the subject, and the numerous problems which still remain to be solved"--Preface.

On the senses, instincts, and intelligence of animals, with special reference to insects by John Lubbock( Book )

65 editions published between 1888 and 2011 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the present volume I have collected together some of my recent observations on the senses and intelligence of animals, and especially of insects. While attempting to understand the manners and customs, habits and behaviour, of animals, as well as for the purpose of devising test experiments, I have found it necessary to make myself acquainted as far as possible with the mechanism of the senses, and the organs by means of which sensations are transmitted. I have accordingly attempted to give, very briefly, some idea of the organs of sense, commencing in each case with those of man himself"--Preface.
