Editorial Review

Product Description
The only complete edition.Charles Darwin's Autobiography was first published in 1887, five years after his death. It was a bowdlerized edition: Darwin's family, attempting to protect his posthumous reputation, had deleted all the passages they considered too personal or controversial. The present complete edition did not appear until 1959, one hundred years after the publication of The Origin of Species. Upon its appearance, Loren Eiseley wrote:

"No man can pretend to know Darwin who does not know his autobiography. Here, for the first time since his death, it is presented complete and unexpurgated, as it exists in the family archives. It will prove invaluable to biographers and cast new light on the personality of one of the world's greatest scientists. Nora Barlow, Darwin's granddaughter, has proved herself a superb editor. Her own annotations make fascinating reading."

The daring and restless mind, the integrity and simplicity of Darwin's character are revealed in this direct and personal account of his life—his family, his education, his explorations of the natural world, his religion and philosophy. The editor has provided page and line references to the more important restored passages, and previously unpublished notes and letters on family matters and on the controversy between Samuel Butler appear in an appendix.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Real Darwin Autobiography -- Norton edition, Nora Barlow, ISBN 0393310698
This review is for The Autobiography of Charles Darwin: 1809-1882, 224 pages, which is erroneously connected to at least two other versions that are not equivalent, namely the 62 page paperback put out by CreateSpace, and the Kindle version, which states it is edited by his son, Francis Darwin (the bowdlerized edition).

The most important thing to know about this edition of the autobiography of Charles Darwin is that it is the edition that contains the entire autobiography.Most editions of the autobiography, especially those edited by his son Francis Darwin, were bowdlerized by his family, removing sections that could be seen as far too controversial for his day, especially on the issue of religion.The version by Penguin, 128 pages, which Amazon identifies as a newer edition of this volume, may be the unedited version, but I cannot tell the exact differences, since I do not own that one.I did search it for certain passages that are normally not present in the autobiographies, and they seem to be present in the Penguin edition, but at about 100 pages shorter than the Norton edition, at least some extras are missing.

This edition, edited by his granddaughter Nora Barlow, first made available the complete autobiography in 1959, a full century after the publication of his seminal work, "On the Origin of Species."

Other items in the Norton edition:letters between Charles and other family members, namely his wife, Emma;notes jotted down by Darwin on various things, some quite humorous, such as his evaluation of the pros and cons of getting married;the controversy between Darwin and Samuel Butler on the nature of evolution.

If one wants to read the autobiography, the Norton edition is the definitive edition, with the Penguin edition being a possible alternative.If one wants instead to read an authoritative scholarly biography of his life, select the two volume edition published through Princeton University Press by the Darwin scholar and historian of science, Janet Browne of Harvard.Those may be found here:Charles Darwin: A Biography, Vol. 1 - Voyaging and Charles Darwin: A Biography, Vol. 2 - The Power of Place.All other Darwin biographies are inferior.

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting to know Charles Darwin
"The Autobiography of Charles Darwin" provides an interesting insight into the life and mind of the renowned biologist, Charles Darwin.Though I think it is commonly held in too high regard as the final authority on the life of Darwin, I still believe it is an interesting and important text when read through the correct lens.I found it a meaningful source when considering it as a text about how Darwin wanted to be remembered.Whether or not Darwin actually can precisely recall intricate details from his childhood like praying to God to help him run faster is not as important as what that means about why the man who was writing the story felt this was an important detail to aid.Through this lens I feel you can learn a lot from this book about who Charles Darwin, the man, was and not just think about him in terms of his theories and his impact on society.

I found the restored version very interesting and would have been disappointed to read an older edition, which did not include some passages related to his private life as well as others on his religious views.Read it in the form that Charles intended you to!

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the read
It is interesting to hear Darwin's perspective on his own life as he reflects in his autobiography. The story is of course a little biased, but the information it contains and the way that it is presented allows the reader to see what Darwin found important, and some of his opinions are surprising. His love of his work is evident, but so is his appreciation for his family, friends, and mentors. The way he describes his thinking is also definitely worth the effort to read. The whole book is less than 60 pages, and the small amount of time necessary to read it is well spent. If you're considering purchasing this book though, you should bear in mind that it is available online for free through the Darwin Online project. So really you have no excuse not to read Darwin's Autobiography-- go! go do it right now. You won't regret it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a more complete version of Darwin's autobiography!
When I finally found this version of Charles Darwin's autobiography, I was so pleased! Most of the versions available (Kindle and otherwise) only provide the autobiography as edited by Darwin's family after his death. The edited version does not have important passages relating to his family and private life, and these are so important to Darwin scholars and literary scholars.

The only complaint that I have is a very small, but personal, one! I found the quality of the paper used in this book (a decision by Norton, I am sure) to be disappointing. Other than that, this is a great read and a wonderful research tool.

4-0 out of 5 stars Speaks to Darwin's heart more than his theory
Charles Darwin is one of the most influential persons in the past two hundredyears.His theories have had major repercussions for science, as well as for our historical and religious understanding of ourselves.If you want to begin understand the mind of Darwin (but not his theory of natural selection - read "Origin" for that of course), read this book. It contains the unexpurgated reflective autobiography of Darwin, andit will be a good window into his ideas and thoughts, though I hope you do not stop there.Read more of Darwin.Unsure of his direction early in life, Charles Darwin became a scientific stickler for accurate details, and of course the monumental founder of the idea of natural selection.Darwin's religious notions, some of his biography, as well as the (almost comic) table of "proofs" whether to marry or not show a serious and light-hearted side to this complex man.Only regrets - I wish there were more information contained herein, and that the latter part of it was better organized (or that it had less to do with the tedious Samuel Butler dispute). ...
