The front page has the 11th lecture given by Jean Louis Agassiz, the new Professor of zoology and geology at Harvard University, with corresponding images. He was known for resisting Darwinian evolution, and believed the available biological and geological evidence confirmed his position. It is quite interesting to see images of the work related to his lecture.
Four pages, minor edge tears, generally in very nice condition.
