The correspondence in this volume is dominated by the public and private response to the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species.
'So important are the events of 1860, and so engaging are the letters, that the volume has much to offer a wide intellectual audience. It is a splendid example of the high calibre of historical research that has come to be associated with the Darwin industry.' Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis, Trends in Ecology
