/ by Charles Darwin ; with photographic and other illustrations. London : John Murray, 1872. First edition, second impression. Octavo, original blind blocked dark green cloth boards (joints and edges rubbed), spine lettered in gilt (small chips to foot of spine), rear joint strengthened, pp. vi, 374, [4] (advertisements dated November 1872); 7 heliotype plates (3 folding) containing 30 portraits, 21 text illustrations (7 full-page), index; a very good copy.

The heliotype plates are numbered in Roman (see Freeman for discussion). As Freeman notes, in his unpublished Additions and Corrections of 1986, Darwin made a number of corrections to this second issue, the first of which is found on Page 103 [104]. One of Darwin’s most important works, and of considerable interest in reference to Australia and its native inhabitants–Darwin takes over a page in thanking Australian notables for their help–including Dyson Lacy, R. Brough Smyth, Samuel Wilson, George Taplin, Archibald Lang, Dr. Ferdinand Mueller and others.
