The London Quarterly Review. 1860. American Edition. Volumes CVII and CVIII
New York, Published by Leonard Scott & Co. 1860. Volume CVII: 287p, index; CVIII: 316p. lacking an index. 26cm. Half black leather and black cloth covers; four raised bands and titling in gilt on the spine. Edges rubbed, cloth chipped. Bishop Samuel Wilberforce of Oxford published an anonymous review of Darwin's Origin of Species in the July number. Wilberforce praises Darwin for his "scientific attainments, his insight and carefulness as an observer, blended with no scanty measure of imaginative sagacity, and his clear and lively style, make all his writing unusually attractive," but within a few paragraphs he begins his scathing critique of the book and of Darwin's "assumptions..we once more repeat, are most dishonorable and injurious to science." Wilberforce goes on to defend creationism. The review is the first salvo of many that would follow over many years attacking Darwin's theory of evolution through natural selection. State laws banned the teaching of evolution. Now in the 21st century, creationism has rebounded in many public school systems where it is being taught alongside evolution. Large percentages of people in other countries reject it entirely. .
