Charles Darwin His Life and Work
1891. Holder notes in his Preface to Darwin's biography: In the preparation of this work I have not attempted an analytical dissertation upon Darwin's lifework, neither have I discussed his theories or their possible effect upon the scientific world, but have simply presented the story of his life, that of one of the greatest naturalists of the age; a life of singular purity; the life of a man who, in loftiness of purpose and the accomplishment of grand results, was the center of observation in his time; revered and honored, yet maligned and attacked as few have been. I have asked my readers to follow with me the footsteps of the naturalist from schooldays in England to foreign shores, seeking to interest them in the pursuits which he loved and to enable them to observe the things which he saw, believing that in this way the remarkable traits of the man as an observer and thinker can be best and most forcibly shown.
