A good year for Darwin, with several publications, further promotion of his thory of natural selection, and serious advances in his botanical experiments. On the downside - his own illness and that of two of his children.
'Latest volume in this authoritative work - a model of its kind - which covers a particularly busy and productive year in Darwin's life.' Naturalist ' ! a fitting tribute to this remarkable man.' M. R. D. Seaward, The Naturalist 'With all of its detail, its ferreting out of the minutiae of biographical and institutional detail, its superb appendices and informative supplementary essays, its exhaustive indexing, multiple bibliographies and biographical registers, its elegant style, the project deserves the highest of praise. This is a love of scholarship that easily matches Darwin's own performance. ! These volumes are indeed details - the level of scholarship that goes into each and every letter is truly astonishing. The research is exemplary.' Gordon McOuat, Annals of Science
