Sixth edition. Thirty-third thousand. The sixth edition (first published 1872, and reissued many times) is regarded as the last and contains Darwin's final major corrections and revisions, including a new chapter, VII, inserted to confute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St George Mivart. The title is changed to 'The Origin of Species', and it is in the sixth edition that the word 'evolution' appears for the first time.

Freeman, 423.
