Man’s Place in Nature and Other Anthropological Essays

£14.99

Product description

Man’s Place in Nature and Other Anthropological Essays
Thomas H Huxley
Collected Essays by T H Huxley Volume VII
Macmillan and Co, London, 1895.
Hardback; 130 x 185 mm; dark red boards with gold titles on spine; xvi & 328 pages plus an unpaginated leaf of advertisements. No dust jacket. Thirty-two illustrations.
The book is in fair condition. The binding is generally sound though the book is slightly cocked and there is some cracking along the gutter between the back free and paste-down endpapers. Some bumping to the covers and spine ends, and a little wear along the joints. Page ends tanned, and tanning internally with foxing of the front and back matter. Page ends irregularly cut. A closed tear at page 183/184.
Thomas Henry Huxley (1825 – 1895) was an English biologist specialising in comparative anatomy. He is known as "Darwin's Bulldog" for his advocacy of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. In Man's Place in Nature Huxley gives evidence for the evolution of man and apes from a common ancestor. The original book, published in 1863, was the first book devoted to the topic of human evolution, and discussed much of the anatomical and other evidence. Backed by this evidence, the book proposed to a wide readership that evolution applied as fully to man as to all other life.
