Charles Darwin’s Autobiography


About the Book
Charles Darwin’s autobiography was first published in 1887, five years after his death. But it was a doctored edition; Darwin family, attempting to protect his posthumous reputation, had deleted all the passages they considered too personal or controversial. the present complete edition did not appear until 1959, one hundred years after the publication of Origin of Species. Upon its appearance Loren Eiseley wrote, “No man can pertend to know Darwin who dose not know his autobiography. Here for the firsh time since his death, it is it is presented complete and unexpurgated, as it exists in the family archives. It will prove invaluable to biographers and cast new light on the personality of one of the world’s greatest scientists.”
