Catalogue Note

A FINE COPY. The work was published on 10 November 1876, and all 1,500 copies were sold by the end of the year. Despite this, it was too technical to reach a wide readership, and was described by Francis Darwin as "one of his most important works, and at the same time one of the most unreadable to any but the professed naturalist" (Charles Darwin (1892), p.310).
