The Autobiography of Charles Darwin 1809-1882. Charles Darwin, Nora Barlow.

The Autobiography of Charles Darwin 1809-1882

Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1958. Cloth. This is the very scarce 1958 edition of Darwin's autobiography that first featured notes and appendices by Nora Barlow, Darwin's granddaughter. In its original publication, Darwin's family omitted large passages of the text concerning his controversial opinions on religion and his rivals. This edition is the first to include the full original text, with Barlow's commentary. Hinges are a bit tender, and there are some ink splatters inside front cover. Jacket is price clipped and has some edge wear, now in protective overwrap. Near fine / very good. Item #701
