Volume II only. Pages crisp and clean except for a prior owner's name verso the front free endpaper and a prior owner's inkstamps at verso and title page as well as modest toning and dust staining around the page block edges; binding square and secure, full green cloth hard cover showing lines of surface rubbing at spine shoulders and head, heel, and fore-edges, some dimming along the spine with a black speck near the spine head, and some softening and fabric wear at the spine ends with spots of fraying at the head, otherwise clean and sound. 226pp. w/ index. This second volume treats on topics such as "retrogressive" development, music, and the purpose of reproductive conjugation, be it to rejuvenate the body bearing the nature of a particular living thing or (or!) to exchange traits as a necessary part of selection and differentiation. One forgets that these were disjunctive beliefs so recently.
