The Descent of Man
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1871. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. vi, 409, [2]pp; v, postscript, 436, [12]. Original maroon cloth, front stamped in black, spine lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers. First American edition, first printing, first issue of Vol. I, second issue of Vol. II. (Darwin bibliographer R.B. Freeman asserts the two volumes most likely issued separately. Errors uncorrected in Vol. I. No errata slip in II.) Very Good+ overall, bright gilt, light edge wear to cloth. A few reading smudges and dog-eared pages. Foxing to edges and, a bit, to contents of Vol. II. A very nice set. Darwin's follow-up to On the Origin of Species, in which he takes the radical evolutionary theory he had advanced in that book and applies it to the human race. The term "evolution" made its debut here.
