Thomas Henry Huxley (1825 - 1895) was an English biologist (comparative

and had a strong interest in scientific education - in schools, universities, and for
the general public. He has been described as the premier advocate of science in
the 19th century [for] the whole English-speaking world. This volume consists of
popular lectures he gave on biology and geology and addresses he delivered on
the same subjects to scientific bodies.
