Media reviews

' ! one of the triumphs in scope and excellence of post-war publishing in England'. Sunday Times ' ! superb series ! beautifully produced, beautifully readable, efficiently indexed, supportively but not gossipily annotated.' The Times Literary Supplement ' ! admirably self-contained volumes, which one need not be a Darwin scholar to read with profit.' The New Yorker 'Every now and then ! publishing and academe work together to produce books so splendid that it seems ungrateful not to acquire them: this promises to be another such.' The Guardian 'An excellent piece of work.' Nature 'The editorial standards are as high as ever, and the complete letters continue to throw unexpected light on Darwin's career.' Trends in Ecology and Evolution ' ! this authoritative work is a model of scholarship in both its comprehensiveness and supporting documentation which provides a rich source of background, biographical and bibliographical detail.' The Naturalist
