The Origin of Species and the Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin - Vellum Style Jackets
The Origin of Species and the Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin with a Vellum Style book jacket. Darwin's theory of evolution by means of natural selection precipitated a furious reaction from believers in the literal truth of Genesis, a row which is still in progress even today. The Origin of the Species is published here with Darwin's earlier Voyage of the Beagle (1839), an account of the journeys to South America and the Pacific islands which first put him on the track of his revolutionary theories. Both books are written in a lucid accessible style. The Voyage of the Beagle derives an added charm from Darwin's vivid description of his travels in exotic places and his eye for piquant detail.
This book is a clothbound hardcover volume published by Everyman’s Library, complete with silk reading-ribbons, acid-free, natural cream-colored paper, and European-style half-round spines. Each book is wrapped in a hand-folded jacket custom designed by Juniper Books.
