Popular Edition. Cr. 8vo, Second Edition, Fifth issue; pp. viii, 398(last blank), (adv., verso blank); 7 half-tone plates, containing 30 portraits reproduced from photogravures by V.

***Presumably Freeman 1157 but he fails to mention the words "Popular Edition" on title-page and by implication gives the pagination as viii, 394 only. With John Murray (only) in gilt at foot of spine and the front board stamped in black. This second edition was first issued in 1890. One of Darwin's most important works, and of considerable interest in reference to Australia and its native inhabitants--Darwin takes over a page of his introduction to thanking Australian notables for their help--including Dyson Lacy, R. Brough Smyth, Samuel Wilson, George Taplin, Archibald Lang, Dr. Ferdinand Mueller and others. #47319
