Comments: A textbook which is a little masterpiece of its kind. Huxley never accepted without qualification the Darwinian principle. He thought "transmutation may take place without transition" and thereby anticipated the findings of modern research. He liberated the English anatomical school from the deductive method, and sounded the keynote of the social medicine of the future. - Garrison-Morton 338; Casey Wood p. 396.

I wanted you to know that my book arrived in about 3 days in perfect condition. I am not an expert in grading book conditions, but to call this book very good with very good dust jacket is a true understatement. This book is pristine and immaculate. The book was wrapped in tissue, then wrapped in corrugated stuff and then wrapped in brown wrapping paper. I buy a lot of books on line and have never received a book so carefully prepared for shipping. It is refreshing to get such professional attention and I hope I can find more books at your place. - Daniel
