Description:

Sixth edition, with additions and corrections. Twelfth thousand. This is the second issue of the sixth edition (published in the same year as the first - the eleventh thousand). Freeman states that the second issue (twelfth thousand), is 'notably less common'. The 6th edition is regarded as the last and is extensively revised, with a new chapter, VII, inserted to confute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St George Mivart, and a Glossary, compiled by W.S. Dallas. The title is changed to 'The Origin of Species', and it is in the 6th edition that the word 'evolution' appears for the first time.

Freeman 392.
