About this book

Originally published, anonymously, in 1844, Vestiges proved to be highly controversial. In it, Chambers integrated research in burgeoning sciences of the day in an attempt to link natural sciences to a history of creation. The ensuing debate set the stage for the controversy over Darwin's works. Chambers later published Explanations: A Sequel in which he defended his work. Both works are reprinted here, along with a bibliography of reviews, Chamber's early writings on cosmology, and essays on Darwin and Chambers.
