Insectivorous Plants, Charles Darwin

First edition, first issue of Darwin's important investigation of "the function and significance of carnivorous habits in certain species of plants, discovering that their ability to trap and digest insects was an adaptation enabling them to survive even in extremely poor soil" (Norman, 601). With woodcut illustrations by Darwin himself, as well as his sons George and Francis Darwin.
