an introductory essay by the physician and professor of natural sciences Teodor Margó.
Margó was a friend and correspondent of Darwin's, and wrote several essays on Darwin's
science, as well as an encomium to the man in 1884. The present book was one of four
scientific works published between 1872 and 1874 by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences,
the others being Bernhard von Cotta's Geologie der Gegenwart (1865), Huxley's Lectures on the Elements of Comparative Anatomy (1864), and Tyndall's Heat Considered as a Mode of Motion (1863).

I between pp. 144-145. Advertisement last two pages of volume II. Mazarin L reports a portrait frontispiece, but there is no evidence to suggest it was ever bound in our copy.- Bill Cotter 2013
