Book News
The four most influential books of Charles Darwin--Voyage of the Beagle (1845), On the Origin of Species (1871), The Descent of Man (1871), and The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (1872)--are presented here in unexpurgated, with illustrations that have been cleaned in order to more closely match their appearance in the original editions. The main bodies of the texts are presented in chronological order, with the original footnotes and indexes gathered together at the end of the volume, along with an additional general index by prominent evolutionary biologist Edward O. Wilson that contains modern terms and concepts of the field. Wilson also includes brief introductions for the volume as a whole and for each text.
