***Freeman 403. Printed from stereos of the eleventh thousand, and the second issue of the final definitive text, Darwin having made some very minor corrections to the eighteenth thousand (vide Freeman). This Sixth edition, the last to be fully revised by Darwin and quite extensively re-written, includes a new chapter in refutation of objections to his theory, especially those of St. George Mivart, the Roman Catholic biologist. The Sixth was also the first edition to drop the word 'ON' from the title and the first edition of the 'Origin' to use the word 'evolution'. The Glossary was compiled by W. S. Dallas at Darwin's request. #66444
