  • John Murray’s annual November sale dinner, at which major booksellers bought stock at a discount, see J. Murray 1908–9 , p. 540. The 1877 reprint of Descent 2d ed. had ‘Twelfth thousand, revised and augmented’ on the title page ( Freeman 1977 ). CD’s annotations were probably notes for his reply, but none has been found.
