The book of days; a miscellany of popular antiquities in connection with the calendar, including anecdote, biography & history, curiosities of literature, and oddities of human life and character by Robert Chambers( Book )

64 editions published between 1862 and 2004 in English and French and held by 2,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The original Chambers Book of Days was published in two volumes in 1864. Compiled by Robert Chambers, one of the founders of the original Chambers publishing company, it contained an eclectic mix of fact and opinion, calendar customs and observations. Following in the footsteps of the original in many ways, this brand-new Chambers Book of Days also collects the folklore and history associated with the year. The book describes the origins of and activities associated with particular days and seasons, while quotations complement the text, as do fascinating 'on this day' facts." "Whether it is weatherlore or wedding lore that you are interested in, and whether you want to discover the historical events associated with the day you were born or learn more about St. Valentine's Day, Chambers Book of Days will inform and entertain."--BOOK JACKET

Vestiges of the natural history of creation : With a sequel by Robert Chambers( Book )

35 editions published between 1846 and 2013 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation was published anonymously in 1844. Starting with the genesis of the solar system, it progresses systematically through such topics as the formation of the earth, the origins of marine life, the emergence of reptiles, birds and other life forms, and the evolution of human life. Drawing widely upon contemporary ideas from astronomy, biology, geology, linguistics, and anthropology, it seeks to establish the 'hypothesis of an organic creation by natural law'. Preceding Darwin's Origin of Species by fifteen years, Vestiges ignited a storm of controversy by pitting natural law and its role in what would soon come to be known as 'evolution' against the generally accepted Victorian belief that the universe was created by God. In 1884, it was revealed that the author was the British publisher Robert Chambers. This fifth edition of the work also contains its 1845 sequel, Explanations

Vestiges of the natural history of creation and other evolutionary writings by Robert Chambers( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1844, Vestiges sparked one of the great intellectual controversies of the century. Integrating research in anthropology, geology, astronony, biology, economics, and chemistry, it was the first attempt to connect the natural sciences into a history of creation. The author, whose identity was not revealed until 1884, was Robert Chambers (1802-71), a leading Scottish writer and publisher. Vestiges reached a huge popular audience in Europe and America and was widely read by the social and intellectual elite. It fostered debate about natural law, setting the stage for the controversy over Darwin's Origin. In response to criticism, Chambers published Explanations: A Sequel, which offered a reasoned defense of his ideas about progressive development, castigating what he saw as the narrowness of specialist science. This volume, which also includes Chambers's earliest cosmological writings, a bibliography of reviews, and a comprehensive new index, illuminates the changing meanings of science and religion in the Victorian era and the rise of secular ideologies in Western culture. -- from back cover
