London: Williams and Norgate, 1926. First edition. "In these lectures Professor Lloyd Morgan develops in further detail the concept of emergent evolution in its application to life and mind as manifestations of divine purpose. Evolution is here regarded not only as a doctrine of descent but as that which [characterizes] all progressive advance throughout nature."--from the dust jacket. Name and bookplate, otherwise very good, in tattered and stained dust jacket that is nonetheless complete.
