PREHISTORIC REMAINS

OF

SAMUEL LAING, ESQ., M.P., F.G.S.

WITH
NOTES ON THE HUMAN REMAINS
,

BY

THOMAS H. HUXLEY, ESQ., F.E.S.,
PROFESSOR OF NATURAL HISTORY, ROYAL SCHOOL OF MINES.

WILLIAMS AND NORGATE,
14, HENRIETTA STREET, COVENT GARDEN; AND
20, SOUTH FREDERICK STREET, EDINBURGH.

1866

*****

BOOK DESCRIPTION: original green publisher's cloth. [vi], 161pp. Huxley's contributions runs from p.83 - p.161. 1st edition, 1st issue.

CONDITION: FINE. Original cloth is in superb condition with no restoration.  Very little wear.  Orignal endpapers are in a state which suggests the book has rarely been opened. No previous names or inks. Almost all sections are totally uncut.  An extraordinary copy of this important work on Scottish archaeology and human ethnology.


******

Thomas Henry Huxley PC FRS (1825 –1895) was an English biologist (anatomist), known as "Darwin's Bulldog" for his advocacy of Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection.  His important contribution to the present work takes up about half of the book.

Samuel Laing, (1812 – 1897), was a British railway administrator, politician, and influential writer on science and religion during the Victorian era.

He was born at Edinburgh on 12 December 1810. He was the nephew of Malcolm Laing, the historian of Scotland; and his father, also called Samuel Laing (1780–1868), was a well-known author, whose books on Norway and Sweden attracted much attention. Samuel Laing the younger entered St John's College, Cambridge in 1827, and after graduating as Second Wrangler and Smith's Prizeman, was elected a fellow. He remained at Cambridge temporarily as a coach, before being called to the bar in 1837, and becoming private secretary to Henry Labouchere, later 1st Baron Taunton, who was then the President of the Board of Trade.
