For the next three years ... he was able to observe mutation in climbing plants both in these houses and in his study ...This little book gives a marvellous impression of Darwin as an experimental scientist, practising a great deal of watching, a little touching, and a lot of measurement. It also contains much less than some of his works of the observations of others.': A very good copy.
