Charles Darwin's autobiography; with his notes and letters depicting the growth of the origin of species by Charles Darwin( Book )
10 editions published between 1950 and 1961 in English and held by 452 libraries worldwide
What sort of man was this revolutionary thinker? Just what did he do? What do his achievements mean to us and what consequences have they had for our own world? Darwin himself could not anticipate the answer to the last of these three questions. His autobiography is the best single source of answers to the first two. It must be true that no one can adequately judge his own character, but in these pages Darwin, the objective scientist, comes unusually near to a truly dispassionate estimate of himself. - p. 2

"In preparing this volume, which is practically an abbreviation of the Life and Letters (1887), my aim has been to retain as far as possible the personal parts of those volumes. To render this feasible, large numbers of the more purely scientific letters are omitted, or represented by the citation of a few sentences. In certain periods of my father's life the scientific and the personal elements run a parallel course, rising and falling together in their degree of interest. Thus the writing of the Origin of Species, and its publication, appeal equally to the reader who follows my father's career from interest in the man, and to the naturalist who desires to know something of this turning point in the history of Biology. This part of the story has therefore been told with nearly the full amount of available detail. In arranging my material I have followed a roughly chronological sequence, but the character and variety of my father's researches make a strictly chronological order an impossibility. It was his habit to work more or less simultaneously at several subjects. Experimental work was often carried on as a refreshment or variety, while books entailing reasoning and the marshalling of large bodies of facts were being written. Moreover many of his researches were dropped only to be resumed after years had elapsed. Thus a chronological record of his work would be a patchwork, from which it would be difficult to disentangle the history of any given subject. The Table of Contents will show how I have tried to avoid this result. It will be seen, for instance, that after Chapter VIII. a break occurs; the story turns back from 1854 to 1831 in order that the Evolutionary chapters which follow may tell a continuous story. In the same way the Botanical Work which occupied so much of my father's time during the latter part of his life is treated separately in Chapters XVI. and XVII"--Preface.
