What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding

Containing Wallace's essays on natural selection and theoretical biology, discussing the coloration of animals and plants, as well as deforestation and soil erosion.

These two essay collections were published together for the first time in 1891.

Written by Alfred Russel Wallace, a British naturalist, explorer and geographer. Wallace independently conceived the theory of evolution through natural selection, and his paper was jointly published with Darwin's writings in 1858.

The second edition of this combination of essay collections, with corrections and additions.

Condition

In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally generally smart; a little bumped to the head and tail of the spine. Lettering to the spine has faded a touch. Ownership inscription to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are a touch age-toned to the edges.

Very Good Indeed
