John Murray, 1895. As stated in this, the corrected version which would live on to this day "SIXTH EDITION, WITH ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. FORTY-SEVENTH THOUSAND." Very good condition, bright original green cloth with gilt titles, folding diagram, rubbing only to extremities, tight binding, endpapers starting, text generally very clean with a few tiny spots on folding diagram. A highly sought after early copy of what many consider the most influential publication of all time. Very collectible and sound copy of this the sixth edition, in which the word "evolution" was used for the first time (although Darwin used this term in the Descent of Man, published earlier). This edition was also the last one that Darwin revised during his lifetime; in 1872 a new chapter was added and in 1876 Darwin added his own corrections. 432 pages.
