    This is the original edition which was abridged by Francis Darwin

    From the editorial review for the NOOK version I thought this would be the unabridged version which was edited and published in 1959 by Darwin's nice Nora Barlow.

    However, this is actually the original abridged version, edited by Darwin's son Francis Darwin. It omits many sections of the manuscript because they were deemed "too sensitive" at that time.
