Variation of Animals & Plants Under Domestication: Vol. 1
Charles Darwin (a. & illus.); Harriet Ritvo (foreword). The publication of “On the Origin of Species” in 1859 ignited a public storm.

Darwin assembled a mass of proof -- & a hypothesis about species reversion. Vol. 1 contains a meticulous analysis of various aspects of plant & animal life, including an inventory of varieties & their physical & behavioral characteristics, & an invest’n. of the impact of a species’ surrounding environ. & the role that both natural & forced changes in this environ. have had.
