Fifth edition of the book that Darwin believed prepared the public mind for the idea of evolution by natural selection. Bound in publisher's red blind-stamped cloth, uneven fading, spine relaid preserving original gilt lettering. Yellow coated endpapers, very good text. Published anonymously in England, Chambers brought together ideas of stellar evolution with a progressive transmutation of species and scored significant popular success with his book which Prince Albert had read to Queen Victoria a year before this edition was published. pp 424
