This book is an important member of Darwin's evolutionary set and it was written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment.
It was to be one of the first books with photographs ever published, with seven heliotype plates (see photos below). Darwin's publisher warned that this aspect of thepublication"would poke a terrible hole in the profits".
