xvi, pp 302. Oxford presentation copy to the former Warden of Keble College, inscribed on the first blank: 'Walter Lock From E. B. Poulton, in memory of much kindness & much fresh stimulus received from him while a colleague in work at Keble, and in years of friendship since then. Oxford. March 1924.' Bound in publisher's blue buckram, slight fading to the spine, light brown spotting to end-papers, fine text, unmarked. Poulton was an evolutionary biologist and lifelong advocate of natural selection who spent 70 years as scholar, lecturer and Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford where he befriended Walter Lock, Fellow and later Warden of Keble College, who was ten years his senior and served as Professor of Exegesis of Holy Scripture. What he made of this book's contents is unknown. Poulton published the volume as part of the centenary celebrations of Darwin's birth and the half-centenary of the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species. An excellent association.
