Charles Darwin
London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1874. Published: London Smith Elder & Co 1874, Second Edition, Revised, A very good copy indeed in the original dark emerald green cloth, spine ends and corners light wear. 3 (of 3) maps (2 hand-colored). Other illustrations and tables. Small tear to the front map without loss, enpapers slightly stained, bookplate of a previous owner on the front endpaper, else a clean tight example of this important and scarce edition. The last edition revised by Darwin with a new foreword. Originally published in 1842 as Darwin's first monograph and Part 1 of the Geology of the Beagle, this second edition was published in 1874, extensively revised and rewritten to take into account James Dwight Dana's 1872 publication Corals and Coral Islands, and work by Joseph Jukes. As such it constitutes the first publication of Darwin's final text of this important work. The first edition (published in 1842 and currently not offered for sale on any of the web-sites) previously sold for $10000+
