The Correspondence of Charles Darwin:, Volume 12; Volume 1864
Volume 12 of this continuing series contains the letters to and from Charles Darwin for 1864, when Darwin, despite continuing illness, was carrying out botanical experiments and working on his book, The variation of plants and animals under domestication. The volume also sheds light on the worldwide reception of Darwin's theory, with letters from correspondents in the United States and Germany, and also on the continuing controversy in Britain, especially with the award of the Royal Society's prestigious Copley Medal to Darwin at the end of the year.
