Question[edit]

What does "in introductions to the first number of each" mean? -- Stbalbach 19:16, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Darwin wrote introductory sections to the first instalment, or "number", of each of the first two "Parts". Calling them volumes is confusing, as the publishers issued it as five or three volumes: see http://darwin-online.org.uk/EditorialIntroductions/Freeman_ZoologyOfBeagle.html and feel free to clarify the sentence.

Ok it's confusing. Since the parts list already mentions Darwin's specific contribution, it seems redundant and confusing to explain it in the main text. Since he was "editor", who often include prefaces and introductions, it kind of covers it. -- Stbalbach 17:05, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
