3 Chardin, Pierre Teilhard De The Appearance of Man
London Collins 1965 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
A Fine unmarked copy in green cloth boards with dustjacket which has some creasing to top and is complete. Translated from the French by J.M. Cohen. The book contains a series of essays in which the author builds up his theory of the origins of man and his relationship with the great families of Hominids, among which man arose, but which do not belong in his line of ancestry. Teilhard himself took part in the discovery of Pekin Man (Sinanthropus) and twice visited the sites in South Africa from which the other main branch of Hominids, Australopithecus, was being evacuated. As the book proceeds from the earlier essays to the late, one sees a remarkable confirmation of Teilhard's theories, in the form of later discoveries which fitted into his scheme. Being first and foremost a palaeontologist, he writes most excitingly and graphically, and here the philosopher is at the same time an excavator and eye-witness. **** NOT EX LIB ****
