Natural Selection and Tropical Nature; Essays on Descriptive and Theoretical Biology.
By Alfred Russel Wallace (Macmillan and Co., 1891). Very good in slightly rubbed green cloth with faint remnant of numbers on spine; interior mostly clean with small number crossed out at top of half-title and a bit of foxing to endpapers. Fowles’ magpie bookplate on flyleaf. The first one-volume edition of two works first published in 1879 and 1878 respectively, with a preface and two entirely new chapters: "The Antiquity of Man in North America" and "The Debt of Science to Darwin."
