About this book

The versatile Huxley was a champion of conservation, a skilled popular science writer, and also a director of London Zoo. This is a biographical account of Huxley as revealed through his own correspondence and that of his contemporaries. Contains a complete bibliography of Huxley's writings.

And what a book! Dronamraju clearly has high regard and affection for Huxley, whom he met when he was a pupil and close associate of J.B.S. Haldane ... an unusual but welcome feature is that about a third of the text consists of Huxley's own correspondence. Bernard Dixon Medical Science Research, 1993
