About this Item

Huxley, Thomas (1825-95). Autograph letter signed to Gerald Massey (1828-1907). London, March 22, 1881. 2pp. plus integral blank, on Huxley's embossed stationery. 177 x 115 mm. Light soiling along folds, but very good. From the great nineteenth-century British biologist and defender of evolutionary theory to poet and Egyptologist Gerald Massey, thanking Massey for the gift of one of his publications: "Dear Sir, Accept my best thanks for the copy of your "Book of the Beginnings" which you have been kind enough to forward to me. I am yours very faithfully T. H. Huxley. Gerald Massey, Esq." A Book of the Beginnings (1881) was the first of Massey's quasi-mystical works drawing parallels between ancient Egyptian mythology and Christianity. Interestingly, Massey believed that civilization had originated in equatorial Africa and spread from there to Egypt. Bookseller Inventory # 41088
