Publisher's original purple cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, and with borders stamped in blind on the front and read covers, beveled edges to cloth, original yellow endpapers, sm 8vo. Mivart started his career as a supporter of natural selection but later became one of its fiercest critics. Mivart tried to reconcile Darwin's theory of evolution with his religious beliefs. It is interesting to see how these viewpoints are represented in Mivart's overview of the primates.
