Overview

To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Charles Darwin, and the 150th anniversary of On the Origin of the Species, the Society for the History of Natural History has issued a special publication that reproduces facsimiles of papers on Erasmus Darwin and Charles Darwin published before 2005 (from the Journal of the Society for the Bibliography of Natural History and Archives of Natural History) and a reprint of the Sherborn Fund Facsimile No. 3 (1968) of Charles Darwin's Questions About the Breeding of Animals (1840) with the original introduction by Sir Gavin de Beer. The book opens with a specially commissioned essay by Professor Duncan M. Porter recounting the Society's particular contribution to Darwin scholarship.
