Darwin, Charles. THE FORMATION OF VEGETABLE MOULD through the Action of Worms, with Observations on their Habits. By Charles Darwin, LL.D., F.R.S. Thirteenth Thousand. With illustrations. Cr. 8vo; pp. viii, 298, [2](adv., verso blank); 15 illustrations on 10 plates, index; original cloth (slightly marked; some foxing); spine and front board lettered in black; a nice copy in slightly defective dustwrapper. London; John Murray; 1904.
***Freeman 1389. The reference on title-page to Thirteenth Thousand is clearly incorrect unless the earlier issue of 1897 was of fewer than 1000 copies. This edition is entirely reset, with the text figures transferred to separate plates and was issued in at least two binding styles, one with spine lettered in gilt, the other in black, as here. The dustwrapper is very rarely seen. #66849
