Abstract:

The collection consists chiefly of correspondence by or about men who contributed to the development of the theory of evolution.

Correspondents include Erasmus Darwin regarding the "Botanic Garden" and treating a patient with foxglove tea; James Hall to Alexander Marcet regarding introductions and recommendations, several societies, political ambitions and family news particularly the illness (delirium) of his son; and Wilhelm von Humboldt on Charles Darwin, Robert Fitzroy and the H.M.S. Beagle.

Also Herbert Spencer on his work and publications incuding "Principles of psychology," Darwin, Thomas Huxley and a bust of himself; J. F. W. Herschel on meteorology, geology and volcanic action; Charles Darwin on his health, work, father, human expression, the theory of language and Weale and Lyell.

Also Francis Galton on Darwin, differences with William Flower, and anthropomorphic experiments; and Samuel Butler on his theory of unconscious memory.

There are also water-colors of the H.M.S. Beagle by Conrad Martens; engravings of fossils; notes on the effect of alcohol and a prescription by Erasmus Darwin; and a ticket and a program for Charles Darwin's funeral, and a copy of his queries on human expression.

In addition there are pertinent newsclippings and cartoons; and portraits of Darwin, his family, Robert Chambers, Hooker, James Hutton, Huxley, Lyell Spencer and John Tyndall.

Additional correspondents and recipients include Archibald Alison, Joseph Edgar Boehm, John Chapman, Emma Wedgwood Darwin, Francis Darwin, Robert Fitzroy, William Henry Flower, James Hall, Joseph Dalton Hooker, Thomas Henry Huxley, Joseph Johnson, Charles Lyell, Richard Owen, Thomas Percival, John Playfair, Anna Sedgwick, Alfred Russel Wallace, James Philip Mansal Weale and William Whewell.
