Reviews and Awards
"Surreal. You won't be dissapointed." --San Francisco Book Review
Featured in The Society for the History of Natural History's April 2014 Newsletter.
"The edited volume of Letters from the Malay Archipelago will probably be of interest primarily to historians of science. ... The letters are grouped by the country from which Wallace wrote or received them. This will allow a reader an extremely efficient way of accessing particular letters either by the correspondent or by the country; something researchers will appreciate." --Reports of the National Center for Science Education
"[T]his is a valuable resource for those interested in the Victorian era, the history of science, biology, Darwin, and Wallace himself. Well illustrated with some stunningly beautiful color plates, this well-appointed volume is easily worth the publisher's list price. It is highly recommended for all scholars working in the field and academic libraries." --Metascience
