Catalog At End, Beginning With Page 2, No Page One But Apparently As Bound And Issued [Perhaps To Remove A Now Obsolete Listing For The Fourth Edition Of This Work?], Continuing With P. 3.

Previous Owner's Signature, "G (?) A. Hadley, Sep 20Th 1869" In Pencil On Front Endpaper (Possibly Dr. George A.

Very Light Dampstaining Along Part Of Foredge Of Pages And Endpapers, Wider And Intruding A Little Into Page Block On About 100 Pages Near Center Of Book, 2 1/2" X 1/2" To 1 1/2" Damp Spot On Top Edge Of Pages Near Foredge, Small Losses Along Foredge Of Front Yellow Endpaper, Rear Yellow Endpapers Partly Adhering And Have Not Been Separated. A Very Scarce Edition, Apparently Issued For A Short Time Prior To The Regular 1870 American Printing Of The Fifth British Edition; "Darwin On Line" Shows 440 Pp., But States Same As 1863-1868 Editions And Makes No Mention Of The Asterisked Pages Or The Supplement For The Fifth Edition.
