THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES

THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES

CHARLES DARWIN

Editorial:COLLINS
Still considered one of the most important and groundbreaking works of science ever written, Darwin"s eminently readable exploration of the evolutionary process challenged most of the strong beliefs of the Western world. Forced to question the idea of the Creator, mid-nineteenth centruy readers were faced with Darwin"s theories on the laws of natural selection and the randomness of evolution, causing massive controversy at the time. However, Darwin"s thories remain instrumental in providing the backbone to modern biology today.

ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES

ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES

CHARLES DARWIN

Editorial:PENGUIN
On the Origin of Species outlines Charles Darwin"s world-changing theory that life on Earth had not been brought into being by a creator, but had arisen from a single common ancestor and had evolved over time through the process of natural selection. Received with both enthusiasm and hostility on its publication, it triggered a seismic shift in our understanding of humanity"s place in the natural world. It is not only a brilliant work of science but also a clear, vivid, sometimes moving piece of popular writing that reflects both Darwin"s genius and his boundless enthusiasm for our planet and its species. This beautiful Macmillan Collector"s Library edition of On the Origin of Species is complete and unabridged, and features an afterword by Oliver Francis. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector"s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector"s Library are books to love and treasure.

THE SUSPICIONS O MR. WHICHER OR THE MURDER AT ROAD HILL HOUSE

THE SUSPICIONS O MR. WHICHER OR THE MURDER AT ROAD HILL HOUSE

KATE SUMMERSCALE

Editorial:BLOOMSBURY
It is a summer"s night in 1860. In an elegant detached Georgian house in the village of Road, Wiltshire, all is quiet. Behind shuttered windows the Kent family lies sound asleep. At some point after midnight a dog barks. The family wakes the next morning to a horrific discovery: an unimaginably gruesome murder has taken place in their home. The household reverberates with shock, not least because the guilty party is surely still among them. Jack Whicher of Scotland Yard, the most celebrated detective of his day, reaches Road Hill House a fortnight later. He faces an unenviable task: to solve a case in which the grieving family are the suspects. The murder provokes national hysteria. The thought of what might be festering behind the closed doors of respectable middle-class homes - scheming servants, rebellious children, insanity, jealousy, loneliness and loathing - arouses fear and a kind of excitement. But when Whicher reaches his shocking conclusion there is uproar and bewilderment. A true story that inspired a generation of writers such as Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle, this has all the hallmarks of the classic murder mystery - a body; a detective; a country house steeped in secrets. In The Suspicions of Mr Whicher Kate Summerscale untangles the facts behind this notorious case, bringing it back to vivid, extraordinary life

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP AND OTHER WRITINGS

JANE AUSTEN

Editorial:ALMA BOOKS
"Love and Friendship" and "Lesley Castle" provide parodies of the gentry and the fashionable idea of sensibility of the time. "A History of England" supplies us with a lively chronicle of English monarchic history. Also included in this collection are "The Three Sisters", "Catharine", the series of vignettes known as "A Collection of Letters" and "Lady Susan", an epistolary story which was recently adapted for the cinema. Taken together, these pieces display all the wry humour, shrewd observation and satirical insight of Emma or Pride and Prejudice.These inventive and entertaining pieces display the early sparkles of wit and imagination of Jane Austen"s mature fiction. Written when she was only in her teens, they are by turns amusing, acerbic and occasionally downright silly.

Then again, maybe the perfect solution to life"s problems only arises when you stop looking for it ..."Warmth and wit leaps off the pages ...sharp, incisive and laugh-out-loud funny" Observer
