Product Description

Review

"Are they needed? To be sure. The Darwinian industry, industrious though it is, has failed to provide texts of more than a handful of Darwin's books. If you want to know what Darwin said about barnacles (still an essential reference to cirripedists, apart from any historical importance) you are forced to search shelves, or wait while someone does it for you; some have been in print for a century; various reprints have appeared and since vanished." --Eric Korn, Times Literary Supplement

"Historians, scientists, historians of science, and their students all have reasons to appreciate the care that went into editing and publishing The Works of Charles Darwin." --Muriel L. Blaisdell, Isis --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Charles Darwin was an English naturalist and author best-known for his revolutionary theories on the origin of species, human evolution, and natural selection. A life-long interest in the natural world led Darwin to neglect his medical studies and instead embark on a five-year scientific voyage on the HMS Beagle, where he established his reputation as a geologist and gathered much of the evidence that fuelled his later theories.A prolific writer, Darwin s most famous published works include The Voyage of the Beagle, On the Origin of Species, The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex, and The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals. Darwin died in 1882, and in recognition of his contributions to science, is buried in Westminster Abbey along with John Herschel and Isaac Newton.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book would be great but for the fact the publisher has failed to include any of Darwin's diagrams/pictures/figures that should be in the book.
Darwin admits that he's not the most fluent of authors so the pictures would be a great help to me when trying to read the book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
this book lacks the illustrations that you need in order to fully understand the text. We sent it back and got the more functional but less impressive-looking paperback.
