    From the moment the explorer Paul du Chaillu had his first, fleeting glimpse of a gorilla, our understanding of this extraordinary animal - and of our own place in the universe - changed irrevocably. Part swashbuckling jungle adventure, part gas-lit Victorian thriller, this book recounts Du Chaillu's extraordinary story, restoring a forgotten hero to his rightful place and charting a controversy that embroiled many notable figures of the age, including Charles Darwin,Thomas Hardy and Abraham Lincoln. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and American-cut pages.
