This is the third volume of the complete edition of The Correspondence of Charles Darwin. For the first time full authoritative texts of Darwin's letters are available, edited according to modern textual editorial principles and practice. The letters in this volume were written during the years 1844-1846. By 1844 Darwin had become an established figure within the circle of London naturalists and his life at Down had assumed the regularity that the responsibility for a thriving and growing household entailed. Despite his move to rural Kent, Darwin was not isolated, and this volume shows how frequent were his trips to London and further afield, how regular his meetings with his scientific colleagues, and how extensive his network of correspondents.

"...it fully measures up to its predecessors in the series in scholarly care and editorial acumen." Quarterly Review of Biology "The magnificent series continues; it couldn't be better done." Evolutionary Theory "...the period covered by these two volumes of the Darwin correspondence [vols. 2 and 3]--encompasses by all measures the most creative era of Darwin's scientific life...These two volumes of the correspondence, presenting 532 (76% of total) previously unpublished letters, fill in many details, and flesh out Darwin-as-person with intimate details of his personal and family life in this creative decade...The scholarship that has gone into these volumes leaves little to be desired--indeed, it is standard-setting." Phillip R. Sloan, Biology and Philosophy
