Media reviews

'Nothing in recent history of science quite tops the achievement of the volumes of Darwin correspondence. It is our own Human Genome Project.' Annals of Science 'Previous volumes have already provided a goldmine of information not only for Darwin scholars but for any researcher interested in the Victorian period, particularly Victorian science.' Isis 'The letters ! are written in elegant and extraordinarily polite terms. They are a delight on those grounds alone although they could daunt modern readers ! the main effect of this book, though, is astonishment at the staggering effort the five editors put into it.' Roy Herbert, New Scientist '! every real science library needs this series.' TRENDS in Ecology and Evolution
