pp. x, 592; 196 text woodcuts. Publisher's original Victorian red one-half morocco leather over marbled boards, top page edges in gilt, 8vo. No number listed in Freeman-this is a rarity. This is one Darwin's more technical titles, so the number of copies printed was fewer. Freeman lists only 17 printings of this title from 1880 to 1972. No ownership marks. Many pages unopened. Wear to leather along the outer joints, wear to leather at the top and bottom of the spine, some mars to leather on the spine, watermark along the bottom margin of most pages with no effect to the text; overall a tight solid copy in good condition.
