Read Books, Aug 1, 2006 - Biography & Autobiography - 360 pages
Originally published in 1908, this is a collection of Darwin's personal letters, the more scientific ones being omitted. Francis Darwin has tried to arrange the letters into a chronological sequence, although this is at times difficult, ensuring that threads of research and events are linked together. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
