Man's place in nature by Thomas Henry Huxley ( Book )
191 editions published between 1863 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thomas H. Huxley was one of the first supporters of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and he did more than any other writer to advance its acceptance among scientists and nonscientists alike. His most famous book, Man's Place in Nature, published only five years after Darwin's The Origin of Species, offers a compelling review of primate and human paleontology, and is the first attempt to apply Darwin's theory to human beings. As compelling a piece of analysis now as it was 140 years ago, Man's Place in Nature is a must for every science lover's library."--BOOK JACKET

Lessons in elementary physiology by Thomas Henry Huxley ( Book )
115 editions published between 1866 and 1943 in 4 languages and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In approaching the revision of 'Huxley's Physiology,' my feelings have been similar to those of an architect to whom is entrusted the restoration of a historic building designed by a master hand. Written by Huxley, the book was revised, and in fact almost rewritten, by Foster. The former was as great a writer as any scientist of his time, the latter may almost be said to have created English Physiology. To 'restore' the work of these men from the dilapidations made by two decades of scientific progress is the task now entrusted to me. The sense of responsibility with which I approach it is, if possible, heightened by the affection which I have for the memory of Foster, who was my master. I have faithfully left untouched any portion of the fabric in which there was not an actual flaw; but where the structure needed repair, it seemed to me due not only to the readers of the book but to the memory of the author, that the repair should be thorough, substantial, and simple. Such have been the principles on which I have tried to carry out my work"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)
