  • 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. CD may have discussed the points in person while he was in London from 6 to 15 January 1877 (CD’s ‘Journal’ (Appendix II)). He evidently wanted to ask about the price
