Variation of Animals & Plants Under Domestication: Vol. 2
Charles Darwin (a.); Harriet Ritvo (foreword). The publication of “On the Origin of Species” in 1859 ignited a public storm. Having offered offered his book as a contribution to science, Darwin discovered to his dismay that it was received as an affront by many scientists & as a sacrilege by the clergy. To answer the criticism of his theory, Darwin published 2 vol. in 1868 to demonstrate that evolution was obvious to any observer of nature. Darwin assembled a mass of proof -- & a hypothesis about species reversion. Here, in Vol. 2, Darwin turns to a richly detailed discussion of the roles of inheritance & crossing in the development of species. This fascinating, invaluable, & courageous undertaking eventually formed the foundation of our current understanding of evolution.
