Subject: Information on George Maw
To: darwin-l@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu

Does anyone on the list have any background information on George Maw, a
rather obscure editor of the *Zoologist* in the 1860s.  I am curious to know
more about him because of the high regard which Darwin had for his review
of *The Origin of Species* for the Zoologist and the several letters they
exchanged concerning the issues Maw raised in that review.  I have not been
able to locate any additional information in either the *DNB* or *DSB*.  I
have our ILL staff diligently tracking down an obscure pamphlet of his.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
