HuxleyAn attempt has been made in this short biography to bring into prominence Huxleys scientific work, though much of it was of so specialized a nature as to make a full presentment to other than professed zoologists practically impossible. It has been necessary to incur a large debt to Mr. Leonard Huxleys admirable Life and Letters of Thomas Henry Huxley, the chief source of information, and this is gratefully acknowledged. Reference has been made to the first edition, in two volumes (1900), the abbreviation Life being employed. In dealing with the published works, the Memorial Edition of the Scientific Memoirs (Sci. Mem.) and the nine volumes of Collected Essays (Coll. Essays) have been used wherever possible, as being most convenient.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
