Die Neuere Schöpfungsgeschichte nach dem gegenwärtigen Stande der Naturwissenschaften


    ANOTHER work on Evolution, equalling the “Origin of Species” in size. The author of these twelve lectures has carefully studied every important work on the subject, and endeavours to give a plain and intelligible account of Evolution in relation to the whole field of biology. The style of the work is vigorous and combative, and considerable success in exposition is attained. But many definite conclusions are announced where the most farseeing evolutionists would only put forward tentative hypotheses. We think it will be far more advantageous for German or other students who have any real knowledge of biology to study for themselves Mr. Darwin's works than to take a less efficient, though an honest and accomplished guide in Dr. Dodel. The book is well illustrated with engravings of interesting structures in plants and animals bearing on Evolution; it also contains a number of hypothetical scenes illustrating the fauna and flora of the past, as well as several phylogenetic trees.
