What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding
Five volumes, being: 'Man's Place in Nature', 'Hume, with Helps to the Study of Berkeley', 'Method and Results', 'Science and Hebrew Tradition' and 'Science and Education'.
This is volumes I, III, IV, VI and VII of what was originally a nine volume set.
Written by Thomas Henry Huxley, an English biologist specialising in comparative anatomy and strong advocate of Darwin's theory of evolution. The grandfather of Aldous and Julian Huxley, he also coined the term 'agnosticism'. Huxley was an important anatomist, and his contributions to the field are often overshadowed by his sometimes outspoken debates on Darwinism.
With a blind stamp denoting presentation copies to the title page of 'Hume, with Helps to the Study of Berkeley' and 'Man's Place in Nature'.
A smart collection of the important scientific essays by Huxley.
In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally, very smart, with just a little wear to the head and tails of the spines. Contemporary ownership inscription to the front endpaper of volume I. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Numerous pages are unopened to the top edge.
