Mental Evolution in Man; Origin of Human Faculty. George John Romanes

First Edition.
Preface & Contents 452 pages with Index and large fold out chart titled 'Excitability'. Romanes met Darwin in 1874 and became one of Darwin's closest friends. "One of the most brilliant of the second generation of British Darwinists" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography), Romanes laid the foundation of comparative psychology, a discipline concerned with the evolution and development of behaviour in both humans and animals. Romanes had access to Darwin's unpublished manuscripts after Darwin's death, and incorporated some of Darwin's material in his own works. The present work is a sequel to Romanes' "Mental evolution in animals"
