This work is "the celebrated forerunner of Darwinism" and the one which alone has made the author's name memorable (apart from his familial connection with Charles Darwin). The work sustains a peculiar but original thesis in which the author attempts to formulate the laws that govern the origin and progress of animal life. There is much in it that seems to foreshadow Darwinism.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
