Detailed Product Description
New York, D. Appleton and Co., 1893 reprint (1877). 164 pp, illustrations. Rust cloth hardcover with former owner's gift inscription and notes on end papers in pencil. Near Fine overall.

The first British book to make the fossil case for evolution. Huxley toured America in 1876, capping his visit with a series of lectures on evolution delivered in New York City. These were published the following year in both England and America, with illustrations taken from fossil drawings by American paleontologist O.C. Marsh, whose "classifications and descriptions of extinct vertebrates were major contributions to knowledge of evolution".
