Vestiges reached a huge popular audience and was widely read by the social and intellectual elite. It sparked debate about natural law, setting the stage for the controversy over Darwin's Origin.

Vestiges reached a huge popular audience and was widely read by the social and intellectual elite. In response to the surrounding debate and criticism, Chambers published Explanations: A Sequel, in which he offered a reasoned defense of his ideas about natural law, castigating what he saw as the narrowness of specialist science. Originally published anonymously in 1844, Vestiges proved to be as controversial as its author expected.

Scottish author, publisher, and bookseller ROBERT CHAMBERS (1802?1871) knew that the radical theories about natural evolution he was espousing in this groundbreaking work would be controversial, so he published anonymously in 1844, and kept his identity a secret until 1884, long after Charles Darwin?s seminal Origin of Species had changed the tenor of modern scientific discourse. Anyone interested in the history of science, the study of evolution, or the politics of science in the 19th century will enjoy this historic book.

All who have studied animals by actual observation, and even those who have given a candid attention to the subject in books, must attain more or less clear convictions of this truth, notwithstanding all the obscurity which prejudice may have engendered. Встречается в книгах (31) с 1834 по 2007. George Barrell Cheever.

Robert Chambers in nature the law of the tendency of fluids to distribute themselves so as to equalize the pressure on every side of each of their particles ; as in the case of the trade winds, and the monsoons.

Lightning might once have been supposed to obey no laws; but since it has been ascertained to be identical with electricity, we know that the very same phenomenon in some of its manifestations is implicitly obedient to the action of fixed causes.

Indeed, Darwin praised Chambers daring, calling his book an excellent service that had swept away prejudice and prepared the public for introduction to Darwins similar ideas, for Chambers anticipated Darwin with his discussions of: the geological formation of the earth hypotheses on the development of the plant and animal kingdoms the early history of mankind and much more.

In the case of the most brilliant star, Sirius, even this minute parallax could not be found; from which of course it was to be inferred that the distance of that star is something beyond the vast distance which has been stated. In some others, on which the experiment has been tried, no sensible parallax could be detected; from which the same inference was to be made in their case.

Be advised that this book is digitized from a printed edition using OCR (Optical Character Recognition). However, there appears to have been no attempt to spellcheck the book and correct all of the gibberish that results from converting a printed page to a digital ASCII file. Thus, if you don't know what the term "cr?/;;-togamia" is supposed to mean, you're out of luck. While you can get a sense of what the original text was saying, it is very slow going, like trying to make sense of Portuguese when you have only a basic understanding of the language.

Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation by Robert Chambers gives us an accurate and perceptive view of the World as seen by a huge intellect, from before Charles Darwin and at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.

Only through important books and the insight and writings of previously obscure but important authors such as Robert Chambers can we appreciate the timeless search for knowledge and those who documented their thoughts over the ages.

It is good that Amazon.com provides the capability to purchase such historically important books at a very reasonable cost.

Perhaps reading this book will inspire someone to really think and to document and publish another important book for the benefit of those who follow.

Charles Darwin was impressed with this one and rightly so. Robert Chambers surmises that we could have chosen an entirely different path than Chimpanzee or Man. He seems to think that we could have branched (no pun intended)off into plants. Predicting Couch Potatoes I guess. In any event it is interesting considering that there is someone that lived during Darwins time that thought that we were more than the product of a Celestial spirit with a magic wand. JC

Robert Chambers's "Vestiges" is a highly important work in the history of science, since it introduced to general English-speaking audiences the idea that empirical evidence shows the universe to be much older than one would gather from the book of Genesis, and that the forms of life we see around us developed over long periods.

The problem with this edition is that it's only a fragment of the book, amounting to about 25 pages. It even breaks off in mid-sentence. Apparently, it was digitized by an amateur volunteer -- which is praiseworthy, except that the file needs to be fixed. Of course, since it's free, I really have no cause to complain other than that I'm disappointed.

EDIT: This review refers to the free edition available on Amazon, not the $3.99 edition, which I have not seen.

A bit disappointing if you're really into the history of theology.

This book seemed to be copied and put into binding. I'm not sure if that is how all of the books come as it is an od text. The copied version makes it difficult to see and read. Other than that the book was in great condition and it came fast.

This book is pretty much unreadable. There are entire paragraphs with random letters and symbols. There are sentence fragments in one chapter that are completed many pages later. I suggest obtaining a hard copy.
