The New Englander (May 1860) containing a review of Darwin's On the Origin of Species
Wm. L. Kinglsey, New Haven 1860 - 8vo; pp. [277]-556, [18 ads]. Scarce single issue of this journal, in original wraps; Vol. XVIII, No. II, May 1860. Contains an important anonymous review of Darwin's On the Origin of Species at pp. 516–519. The reviewer is not unsympathetic, framing his or her criticisms as a series of (rather astute) questions, while commenting 'We admit all Dr. Darwin's facts. We do not question that it was nature's design to provide for many varieties by culture, and that many of the so-considered species may have originated from an original pair. But there is a limit beyond which analogy, pliable as it is, will not carry us.' Good condition: paper wraps remarkably good, though the spine is worn at the top and bottom, and there is wear with minor loss to the front lower corner and rear upper corner; internally good throughout, with minor foxing to prelims and last few pages of ads; faint dampstaining to the margins, not affecting text; the Darwin review is in very good to fine condition.
