The correspondence of Charles Darwin by Charles Darwin( Book )

14 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is part of the definitive edition of letters written by and to Charles Darwin, the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. Notes and appendixes put these fascinating and wide-ranging letters in context, making the letters accessible to both scholars and general readers. Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. The letters are published chronologically: volume 24 includes letters from 1876, the year in which Darwin published Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom, and started writing Forms of Flowers. In 1876, Darwin's daughter-in-law, Amy, died shortly after giving birth to a son, Bernard Darwin, an event that devastated the family. The volume includes a supplement of 182 letters from earlier years, including a newly discovered collection of letters from William Darwin, Darwin's eldest son

On the Origin of Species is one of the great revolutionary books in history; and the best source for understanding it is Charles Darwin's correspondence. These eight award-winning volumes, reprinted for the first time in paperback, present the definitive text of all known letters to and from Darwin during the first half-century of his remarkable life, including the Beagle voyage and the great public debates on his evolutionary theory. In riveting detail, they tell the story of an aimless English schoolboy who emerged as the most controversial man of science of his era. With hundreds of correspondents across the globe and from all walks of life, the over 3000 letters presented here offer an extraordinary panorama of the fast-changing world of the nineteenth century. Poignant and powerful, they offer a moving commentary on issues at the heart of our own concerns, from global environmental change to the effects of science on religious belief
