About this Item

446 pages, with an Introduction by C. D. Darlington. "Sir Francis Galton (1822 -1911) was one of the most versatile men of his times." This book is the reprinting of Galton's second edition of 1892. No changes have been made, except that an error in the legend to Table II on page 102, has been corrected in a footnote. The last chapter apart from the section about Individuality, discusses Pangeneisis. It has little connection with the rest of the book, as it consists on an attempt to express the consequences of Darwin's unfounded theory of heredity in a form capable of being tests. It has, however, been included for the sake of completeness." FINE HARDCOVER. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 020998
