The Genesis of Species

by George Mivart

I am proud to present the entire text of this remarkable book. I hope it will be widely read, and I hope thereby Mivart will attain his proper place in history next to Charles Darwin. The conversion to text from the scans was completed in April of 2004. I would be grateful if you would inform me of any errors.
