Darwin, On the Origin of Species. The Dublin Review, Volume 48, 1860. Contains the key 32 page article On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, reviewed by John Morris
Thomas Richardson & Sons, 1860, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, First Edition. The Dublin Review held such a strong view regarding Darwin's writing's that it has been compared to that held by the Church towards Galileo, (Ellegard, 1958). John Morris was secretary to Cardinal Wiseman, a founder and proprietor of the Dublin Review, and as such it might be inferred that Wiseman's views are included in Morris' own. Morris' key contribution to the debate between religion and Darwinism is summed up perhaps in his phrase "the Mosaic account of creation" and the insistence between the truth of facts and Darwin's theory. An important article written from a contemporary point of view, long before Darwin was considered unchallengable, and showing a Victorian preoccupation with the importance of religion over that of Science. Title page, 4 pages contents, 561 pp including index. Bound in early 20th century bindings of leather spine, with plain boards. Very sound and firm throughout, no cracked joints or loose pages. An attractive and appealing example of this important early critique of Darwin's work. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian Books; Inventory No: 199959.
