Edited By: Desmond King-Hele
172 pages, no illustrations
Not a narrative biography, but a series of illuminating insights into Erasmus Darwin's life and work, with quotations from letters and candid comments by Charles Darwin, who here writes more freely than in his scientific works.
'! a marvellous insight into Darwin's judgement of his grandfather, and a unique look at his original text.' Endeavour 'This scholarly work has two sets of footnotes, Charles's original references and then a more detailed set by the author. We must be greatly indebted to King-Hele for spending the time and care in producing this very important slim volume. This is a book that will be used many times by scholars who are intrigued with eighteenth-century development and its preoccupation with science and its potentials.' Open History
