The Germ-plasm: A Theory of Heredity. by August Weismann. Translated by W. Newton Parker, Ph.D. Harriett Röunfeldt, B.Sc. London: Walter Scott, Limited. 1893.

Extract

This work, dedicated by Professor Weismann to the memory of Charles Darwin, is a most valuable contribution to the scientific literature of the day, and the English translators are to be sincerely thanked for adding a masterpiece to the “Contemporary Science Series.” To carry out consistently a mechanical theory of heredity is a gigantic task, and although the book has been and will be widely criticized, and probably much altered before its views are accepted generally, it stands at present as the best work on heredity, and a triumph of skill and erudition.
