WARRING, Charles B. Genesis I and Modern Science. New York: Hunt & Eaton. 1892.

8vo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to front and spine, 1 folding table; pp. 245; a little bumping to extremities, spine dulled, very good.
First edition. Scarce. Charles Warring (1825-1907) was a scholar in Hebrew and cosmogony at the Collegiate School in Poughkeepsie NY, and this book is an early example of 'concordism', an attempt to make Biblical history align with post-Darwinian natural science. In this case, the geological eras of Earth's history are seen to fit in with the seven days of Creation outlined in Genesis, with some robust jeering of T.H. Huxley thrown into the bargain.
