Catalogue Note

As noted by Freeman, "Krause's short scientific biography of Darwin's grandfather had originally appeared in the German periodical Kosmos in February 1879... Darwin's own biographical contribution, which was based on family papers, is longer than the original article, and, in recognition that it contains his work, the binding is standard green cloth."
