Book Description Wm Dawson & Sons, Folkestone, second edition (revised and enlarged), 1977, 1977. Cloth, 8vo, 235 pp. 1805 entries. From a contemporary review by H. A. Feisenberger in the Times Literary Supplement "The excellent introductions to the list of each work have been greatly extended. They not only describe the publishing history of each book, but also give some idea of its importance in the history of science. So this book is not only of value to the bibliographer, but to anybody concerned with the study of Darwin's works." Part 1: books and pamphlets; Part 2: publications in serials. Part 1 contains all editions and issues of books, pamphlets and circulars, both British and foreign, noted by the author from 1835 to 1975, and includes a review of the publication history for each title. Part 2 lists all papers, notes and letters originally published in serials. Some of the complexities of Darwin bibliography are touched on in the following comment from "Species of Origin", a note on the Darwin Collection at Toronto : "From the time he returned from the Beagle voyage until his death in 1882 Darwin laboured steadily. His total production was twenty books and three pamphlets. He also contributed to eight books and one pamphlet. Since his death, the total number of his works has been augmented with the publication of his letters, notebooks, diaries and manuscripts left unfinished by him. A number of his papers were published by the scientific periodicals of his time and about ninety communications to learned societies were received from him. Almost every one of Darwin's books appeared in more than one edition and almost every edition had textual revisions of great importance. Many of the editions were further subdivided into 'issues' or, as his principal English publisher, John Murray, called them 'thousands', and there were often small changes made between the thousands."

Book Description Dawsons of Pall Mall, London, first edition, 1965, 1965. Cloth, 8vo, x, 81 pp, ills. 541 entries. Part 1: Introduction Part 2: List of English editions Part 3: List of Foreign editions Appendix : On the Flight Paths of Male Bumble-Bees by Charles Darwin [first English printing]. From the author's preface: "The following list contains all the editions and issues which I have seen, or seen reliably recorded, which were printed in Darwin's lifetime, including books, pamphlets, circulars and letters, but excluding work published in periodical literature except where this was later published in its own covers. It includes, secondly, editions and issues published in England from 1882 to date, and such foreign editions as I have noticed up to 1892, or to 1900 in those cases where Francis Darwin re-edited the matter after his father's death. It includes, thirdly, works published after 1882 which contain matter printed from previously unpublished manuscript. For letters, I have included only the more important collections It does not pretend to be more than a list, giving only the minimum information necessary to identify each item, and I am aware that it is far from complete. I have discussed the difficulties of completing such list in the first part of the introduction; there are only forty-six works listed but between them they have produced over 500 items, excluding binding variants which would greatly increase the number."
