    The Lowell Lectures On The Ascent Of Man by Drummond, Henry

    Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. reprint.. Hardback. Cloth, G+. xiv+444pp+4pp publishers adverts, spine a little dulled, foxing to the preliminary & final pages, a good reading copy. The author's lectures on Altruism, written in response to Darwin's 'Descent of Man', in which Drummond seeks to harmonize Christianity and evolution with his general thesis that the struggle for life gradually became altruistic in character, or a 'struggle for the life of others'. Drummond had intended to only publish after revision later in his life, but ill health and the risk of the lectures appearing in a pirated form forced him to send his MS to the printers prematurely.

    Toronto: George J. McLeod. First Edition.. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.. First Edition. Toronto, George J. McLeod, 1980. 14.5cm x 21.5cm. 343 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Gould delights and instructs us, deepening and extending his examination of evolution, a centrepiece of modern science. Were dinosaurs really dumber than lizards? Why, after all, are roughly the same number of men and women born into the world? What led the famous Dr.Down to his theory of mongolism, and its racist residue? How does Mickey Mouse's evolution mirror our own? What do the panda's magical "thumb" and the sea turtle's perilous migration tell us about imperfections that prove the evolutionary rule? These questions lie on a continuum between timeless science and singular history and touch us all. Never have their sweet and bitter mysteries been explained with such wit, beauty and elegance. Includes the following chapters: Perfection and Imperfection: A Trilogy on a Panda's Thumb, Natural Selection and the Human Brain: Darwin vs Wallace, Darwin's Middle Road, A Biological Homage to Mickey Mouse, Piltdown Revisted, Our Greatest Evolutionary Step.
