The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin
Introduced by Darren Bloodworth of C Arden Booksellers, Hay-on-Wye
This is certainly the most important biological work ever written. Controversial at the time, Charles Darwin had formulated his theory of evolution over the preceding twenty years or so.
This is a 2nd edition, 2nd issue of Charles Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’ that was published by John Murray in London in 1860.
In original binding of green boards, with blind-tooled decoration, gilt lettering and decoration to spine. Overall this is a very good copy.
Collectors note: the books has ‘Fifth Thousand’ on title-page as called for in the Freeman bibliography of Darwin’s works. Freeman No. 376 Variant B.
