First edition. Jacket spine faded, top jacket edge rubbed. 1979 Hard Cover. 240 pp. The publication of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species in 1859 began a revolution note only in the biological sciences but in Western man's philosophical and moral conception of himself. The Origin of Species went through six editions between 1859 and 1872. In each edition Darwin updated his information, carefully revised certain of his ideas, and answered his critics. Richard Leakey's new and skilfully abridged version of the sixth edition presents both Darwin's fundamental thoughts on the question of evolution and the author's elegant refutations of the many vigorous arguments against them.
