Catalogue Note

A very good copy of The Descent of Man in which  the word "evolution" occurs for the first time in any of Darwin's works.

This copy does not appear to conform to either of those described by Freeman. The title of volume 1 here reads "With illustrations. In two volumes. - Vol.I.", and volume 2 has no adverts on the verso of the title.
