This eight-volume, reset edition in two parts collects rare primary sources on Victorian science, literature and culture. The sources cover both scientific writing that has an aesthetic component - what might be called 'the literature of science' - and more overtly literary texts that deal with scientific matters.

Review quote

'a giddying embarrassment of riches for Victorianist and science and literature scholars alike ... The innovative research directions initiated by the set will likely influence science and literature studies for years to come.' Review 19 'The editors have wisely focused on texts that are difficult to find. Each volume features an introduction that maps out the landscape within which the readings serve as markers. Highly recommended.' CHOICE 'these eight volumes are an immense treasure trove for explorers in the field of Victorian literature and science to delight in and exploit.' The British Society for Literature and Science
