Media reviews
'! 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
