Catalogue Note

Despite the implications for traditional religious convictions contained in Lyell's Principles, his own beliefs at that time prevented him from making the now obvious deductions from the uniformitarian theory if extended to human fossils and artefacts. Thirty years later and with the benefit of Darwin's Origin of Species he made good this deficit in The Antiquity of Man.
