"This collection includes the first printing of Wells's 'Account of a female of the white race...,' which contains the first recognizable statement of the principle of natural selection... Darwin was not familiar with Wells's paper when he published the first edition of the Origin, but it was later called to his attention, and Darwin paid tribute to Wells's pioneering statement in the historical introduction to the third edition of the Origin" (Norman).
