The Cambridge edition of The Correspondence of Charles Darwin (winner of the first Morton N. Cohen Award for a Distinguished Edition of Letters) has been hailed as 'a monumental, beautiful edition' and 'one of the triumphs, in scope and excellence, of post-war publishing'. This selection compiled by the editor of the Correspondence, and with a foreword by Stephen Jay Gould, makes these engaging letters newly available to general readers.
