Darwin, Charles. THE FORMATION OF VEGETABLE MOULD, through the Action of Worms. Westminster Edition; pp. [iv](binder's blanks), [ii], vi, 326, [2](blank), [4](binder's blanks); gravure frontispiece, with title-guard, 15 text figures, index; title-page in red & black; original half morocco, with cloth sides, spine gilt in panels, with raised bands, marbled endpapers; top edge gilt, others uncut; a fine copy; very scarce. New York and London; D. Appleton and Company; N.D. [c. 1900].
***Freeman 1387. With Authorized Edition stated on title-verso. Entirely reset (and quite different from other so-called Authorized Edition copies), apparently without the additions of Francis Darwin. The frontispiece is a fine view of Darwin's study. A very handsome edition, limited to 1000 numbered copies, this appears to be one of a smaller number specially bound for Brentano's, N.Y., most copies being issued in red cloth. #66847
