‘I am infinitely pleased & proud at the appearance of my child.’Charles Darwin, writing from just below a Yorkshire moor to his publisher, John Murray, 3rd Nov 1859, on receiving his first copy of On the Origin of Species.
I finally know the feeling, Charles.
This afternoon, I received my proof copy of On the Moor:
Not quite as ground-breaking as On the Origin of Species, perhaps, but no reason to be any less pleased or proud.
“…wonderful. Science and history and geography and evolution and culture all tangled up in musings while walking about the moors around Hebden Bridge.”—PZ Myers
