About this Item

Bree, Charles Robert (1811-86). Species not transmutable, nor the result of secondary causes. x, 256, [2, including errata]pp. London: Groombridge & Sons, [1860]. 191 x 125 mm. Original blindstamped cloth, rebacked preserving original spine, slight fading. Occasional minor foxing, but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate of Robert Durell S. Stephens. First Edition of this anti-Darwinian critique of On the Origin of Species. Bree, a physician, "was one of Darwin's more philosophically-minded critics in Great Britain. No sooner did the Origin of Species and the Descent of Man appear than Bree subjected each in turn to a book-length refutation. . . . Darwin told J. D. Hooker that he 'need not attempt' [Bree's] first book and complained to his old professor, Henslow, that its author 'had not the soul of a gentleman in him'" (Moore, the Post-Darwinian Controversies [1981], pp. 199-200).
