The Movements and Habits of Climbing Plants
London: John Murray,, 1875. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, frames to boards in blind, dark brown endpapers. Foscarini bookplate to front pastedown. Extremities a touch rubbed, spine ends slightly bumped, text block strained in a few places but still firm. Otherwise an excellent copy. First edition in book form, styled "Second Edition Revised" as it was revised and enlarged from a paper published in the Journal of the Linnean Society in 1865. "In the autumn of 1864 I finished a long paper on Climbing Plants, and sent it to the Linnean Society. The writing of this paper cost me four months: but I was so unwell when I received the proof-sheets that I was forced to leave them very badly and often obscurely expressed. The paper was little noticed, but when in 1875 it was corrected and published as a separate book it sold well" (Darwin, Life and Letters, p.75).
