VARIATION OF ANIMALS AND PLANTS UNDER DOMESTICATION - Darwin Charles - 1899. 
London: John Murray, 1899. 2 volumes. Second edition, eighth impression, a very early reissue of an important edition revised. With illustrations throughout. 8vo, original polished green cloth gilt lettered and decorated on the spines, paneled in blind on the covers. xiv, 473, ; x, 495, 32 catalogue pp. An excellent copy, very well preserved and quite fine, bright and clean, unusually so with very little evidence of use or age. Vol. II partially unopened. A FINE SET, SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION, AND AN IMPORTANT WORK. The second edition is very important in that Darwin made a number of corrections, but more importantly he reworked Chapter XXVII on Pangenesis. This work "represents the only section of Darwin's big book on the origin of species which was printed in his lifetime and corresponds to its first two intended chapters. It contains, in Chapter XXVII, his provisional hypothesis of pangenesis; one which he thought was new, but has a long back history" (Freeman 877).
