About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for English men of science: their nature and nurture. by GALTON, Francis.

Description:

8vo. xiii, [1], 270, plus 2 pages publisher's ads. Half-title and errata, plus several text tables and illustrations. Original cloth, somewhat faded, interior excellent. First edition. The present work is the result of a questionnaire that Galton circulated among a select group of the Royal Society. In attempting to better analyze the inheritance of various talents, he wanted to evaluate the role of the environment in which these men were raised (their nurture), and balance it against the inherent abilities with which they were endowed (their nature). Although unable to resolve the nature versus nurture argument, Galton's book remains important for fostering this still hotly contested debate. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1875 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: New York : D. Appleton 231 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 451197776
