First edition of this important explanation of how religion and science were not necessarily mutually exclusive. The American botanist Asa Gray (1810-1888) was an intimate friend and correspondent of Charles Darwin and is generally considered the most influential American botanist of the 19th century.

In the second volume of her highly regarded biography, Charles Darwin: The Power of Place (2003), Janet Browne cites him as saying "no other person understands me so thoroughly as Asa Gray. If I ever doubt what I mean myself, I think I shall ask him!" (p. 135).
