Description:

W.H. Freeman. Oxford: W. H. Freeman and Company, 1982 8vo., bright green boards, backstrip and upper cover lettered in silver, with ISBN printed to lower; black, green and white dust jacket designed by Perry Smith; pp. [v], vi-viii, [iv], 307, [i]; a fine copy, almost as fresh as the day it was printed, save for a couple of very small spots to the edges, and pencil price now erased from the ffep.  First edition.  The controversial evolutionary biologist and fervent atheist Richard Dawkins rose to fame in 1976 with his publication of The Selfish Gene.

Dawkins argues that phenotype (the set of observable characteristics of an organism) should not be limited simply to biological processes such as tissue growth, but extended out to include the… Read More
