What do you think the best edition of Origin of Species was? Be sure and list the name of the publisher. Criteria for the best edition include the following:
1. How comfortable the book is to hold/read. I never like reading those tiny mass market paperback books with their tiny letters and their small margins. Nor do I like reading a book that is too wide. Something in the middle works for me.
2. How beautiful the cover is. A beautiful cover means extra points for any book.
3. How good the bonus material in the book is. Pretty much every edition of Origin of Species has at least an introduction discussing the history of the book, and sometimes much more.
4. Anything else you like!
Write in the comments the edition you like best (who published it and when). I think my favorite edition so far is this one:
The Origin of Species (Modern Library)
I'm also considering this: Darwin's Ghost: The Origin of Species Updated It's an updated version of the Origin.
