Darwin, Charles. ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES By Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Introduced by Richard Keynes. Roy. 8vo, First Edition in this form; pp. xxii, 416(last blank); coloured frontispiece & 24 plates (mostly coloured), diagram, glossary, index; original gilt-illustrated cloth; a fine copy in slipcase. London; The Folio Society; 2006.
***Reproducing the text of the first edition "with some minor emendations, and with the inclusion of a glossary of scientific terms first published in the fifth edition of ... 1869"--this statement is however partly in error as the glossary was not in fact included until the Sixth Edition of 1872. An attractive edition, nicely produced, with good legible type. #30793
