* This is a little-known work by the renowned Belgian geologist and politician Jean Baptise Julien Omalius d'Halloy (1783-1875). In 1834 he presented at the Académie his researches on the classification of human races, of which this book seems an advanced publication. It was republished several times under slightly different titles.
In the third edition of On the Origin of Species published in 1861, Charles Darwin added a Historical Sketch giving due credit to naturalists who had preceded him in publishing the opinion that species undergo modification, and that the existing forms of life have descended by true generation from pre-existing forms. He explicitely included d'Halloy. (Wikipedia)
