Charles Darwin: After the Origin

Price: $15.00

"Rarely do major historical anniversaries align so precisely. Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, England, on February 12, 1809. His most famous work, On the Origin of Species, was published on November 24, 1859. To be able to celebrate both the 150th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential books of modern times and, simultaneously, the 200th anniversary of the birth of its author, is indeed a unique occasion. And that rare alignment is the occasion for the publication of this thoughtful and insightful review ... In focusing on the 22 years that followed publication of the Origin of Species, Sheila Ann Dean has illuminated the most productive years of Darwin's life." - David Corson, Cornell University
