***Freeman 1142. The heliotype plates are numbered in Roman (see Freeman for discussion). As Freeman notes, in his unpublished Additions and Corrections of 1986, Darwin made a number of corrections to this second issue, the first of which is found on Page 103 [104]. One of Darwin's most important works, and of considerable interest in reference to Australia and its native inhabitants--Darwin takes over a page in thanking Australian notables for their help--including Dyson Lacy, R. Brough Smyth, Samuel Wilson, George Taplin, Archibald Lang, Dr. Ferdinand Mueller and others. #66852
