***Freeman 161, being a facsimile of Freeman 11 (Ferguson 2739), the second issue of Darwin's narrative, the first as a stand-alone work, it having been published earlier in the same year as Volume III - 'Journal and Remarks', of the three-volume 'Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle'. As Freeman notes, this facsimile was made from a defective copy, and issued, at least initially, lacking signature 2Q (= pp. 593-608), however this copy has had the deficiency very skilfully remedied (possibly by the original publisher?) with the insertion of the missing leaves, so is a quite complete facsimile of the original edition. #66367
