Catalogue Note

As stated within Grolier Club, Darwin (2004), the "Harvard botanist Asa Gray arranged for an American printing in January of 1860. Twenty-five hundred copies were printed. There were four Appleton printings of the Origin in this year". According to Freeman, the first of these printings is distinguished by the presence of two quotations facing the title-page, as here.
