Darwin believed that his theory could explain a wide range of phenomena:. All the forms of reproduction graduate into each other and agree in their product; for it is impossible to distinguish between organisms produced from buds, from self-division, or from fertilised germs It is satisfactory to find that sexual and asexual generation Parthenogenesis is no longer wonderful; in fact, the wonder is that it should not oftener occur. Murray had sold 1, at his autumn sale in the previous year and Life and Letters Vol.

The second, of 1, copies, was issued in February. The title pages are identical and neither the cases nor the inserted advertisements are certain means of distinguishing them. They are most easily distinguished by their errata. In the first issue there are five on page vi of Vol. I, and nine in seven lines on page viii of Vol. In the second all these have been corrected, but a single new one is given on page vi of Vol.
The two issues have considerable textual differences …. In America, the first edition, based on the first English, appeared from Orange Judd in Darwin detested having to open the top edges of his books with knives and, in his later years, demanded that his publisher produce a very small number of trimmed copies for presentation purposes.

Hammond to FEPs, else internally clean and crisp. A crisp copy of the revised edition of naturalist Charles Darwin's study of variation within plants and animals caused by the modification of species by breeders and horticulturists. First published in , the work is notable for containing the first appearance of the term 'survival of the fittest along with the fifth edition Origin of Species as a substitute for Darwin's more anthropomorphic 'natural selection'; and the first expression of his theory of Pangenesis, the inheritance of acquired characteristics.
Freeman F Second edition, sixth thousand. It is also "the only section of Darwin's big book on the origin of species which was printed in his lifetime and corresponding to its first two intended chapters" ibid. Darwin's intent was "to provide overwhelming evidence for the ubiquity of variation" Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. It also advances his hypothesis of pangenesis and gemmules, as the agents of the inheritance of characteristics" DSB.
Darwin's hypothesis of pangenesis, "here expounded for the first time" Freeman. Was the by "means of which [he] tried to frame an explanation of hereditary resemblance, inheritance of acquired characters, atavism, and regeneration. It was a brave attempt to account for a number of phenomena which were beyond the bounds of scientific knowledge in his day, such as fertilization by the union of sperm with egg, the mechanism of chromosomal inheritance, and the development of the embryo by successive cell division.
His hypothesis of pangenesis could not therefore give a permanently acceptable account of the multitude of phenomena it was designed to explain. It was, however, a point of departure for particulate theories of inheritance in the latter nineteenth century' DSB, Freeman. While, as said, Darwin's two volumes "were intended to provide overwhelming evidence for the ubiquity of variation" they also "incidentally answer[ed] Lyell and Gray, who maintained that variations had not occurred purely by chance but were providentially directed.
He gave numerous instances of the causes of variability, including the direct effect of the conditions of life, reversion, the effects of use and disuse, saltation, prepotency, and correlated growth" Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
