***Freeman 461(?). The Sixth Edition was the final edition extensively edited by Darwin and 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. Freeman describes his 461 as being a volume in the 'Library of Famous Books by Famous Authors' but there is no internal or external evidence of that in this copy, nor does he mention the portrait. A plain but attractive volume. #66464
