Catalogue Note

"The sixth edition, which is usually regarded as the last, appeared in February 1872... It is again extensively revised and contains a new chapter, VII. This was inserted to refute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St. George Mivart... The title changes to The Origin of Species, and a glossary, compiled by W.S. Dallas, appears. It is in this edition that the word 'evolution' appears for the first time. It had been used in the first edition of The Descent of Man in the previous year, but not before in this work" (Freeman, p.79).
